May is Mental Health Awareness Month! While we should do this year round, now is an excellent time to remember to reflect and take action to improve our minds not only for ourselves but for those of us around us who support us.

She brings her unique style to every client interaction and loves to infuse therapy and workshops with her love of nature.

Today I celebrate my mom and all the moms that I love. Motherhood is a job that comes with no manual or training. Today can look different for all of us.  I hope, dear friend, that you remind yourself that having a happy day is not about the cards, the gifts, or even the actions of others. "Happy" can come from how you choose to think today. Perhaps you are missing your mom, your children are not with you, or like me, you don't have children who call you mom. I want to remind you to choose to focus on what you do have. Every day is an opportunity to find joy, live in gratitude, and be intentional with what you want to feel. Like many who don't have children, I began to feel that mix of emotions that can come from a day like this one. A day where you can feel everyone celebrates the accomplishment of motherhood, and yet you seem to be left out. As I began to allow my crazy emotions to rule my day, I began to think about the incredible opportunity for me to be the best auntie, the best coach I  want to be, and most importantly, a woman with a message, a podcast host. It has been my goal since I launched Casa DeConfidence to share the inspirational stories of others. I have desired to normalize that our stories are the bricks that pave the way to our dreams and living the life we want. I hope that rather than comparing yourself, the stories from our guests inspire you, motivate you, and help you in your journey of confidence. Yes, I know that missing someone you love is hard, and not having the child you wanted for the most is hard. However, we all still have this day, and there is always a wonderful blessing waiting to be found. I wish you a joyous day no matter what. Join me today as I share about my mom.  Today I want to share about her with you. We all have a story. Please check out her journey and how it made me who I am today.

In honor of it being (almost) Earth Day, we are excited to welcome Crystal Dimiceli of Forces for Nature to the Casa DeConfidence podcast! Crystal was that little girl who loved animals and brought home strays whenever her parents would allow it (that may still be her M.O.!). She was that teenager who watched a show about pollution and vowed to stop it when she grew up. But, she’s also that woman that loves to travel to far-off places on fossil fuel-guzzling airplanes while wearing leather shoes. She may not be the perfect example of how to do eco- and animal-friendly 100% “right”, but she makes every effort possible. Her biggest desire is to help other people also make practical choices for a healthier and more humane world. That is why Crystal now runs a podcast and online community of hope and action for animals and the environment. Leave the doom and gloom at the door because she's all about spreading hope through action!Want to connect with Crystal?- Website- Apple Podcasts - Spotify- Instagram- FacebookGrab her free guide: Becoming a Force for Nature!Support the show (
Let's be honest; no one really talks about what happens when you reach "midlife."

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way anymore! In this episode of Casa DeConfidence, we are excited to have Gail Scott of Midlife Moxie joining us. Gail is one of the creators of the MIDLIFE MOXIE™ podcast, and co-founder of a new community where they are dedicated to supporting women in making the middle part of their lives one of their best seasons.

What do you do when your friends turn out not to be real friends? This is what happened to Marissa, our newest podcast guest. The story goes that a young gentleman overheard a group of girls conspiring to exclude their friend, Marissa, from a birthday party. He made a video on TikTok detailing the plan and asking TikTok users to help him find Marissa. The video actually made it back to the right Marissa, and she found out that her friends weren't true friends at all. It stung, but Marissa turned it into an opportunity with a follow-up video. There was a massive outpour of support from TikTok users all over the world, offering to be her friend even if it was just online. Marissa ran with it and hosted a picnic in the park with an open invitation to anyone who just wanted to hang out and make new friends. What she thought would be a 20 person max event turned out to be 200, which sparked a movement. Today, Marissa is running the No More Lonely Friends movement, where she hosts these open picnics worldwide. Countless true friendships have been made, and she is just getting started.  Want to connect with Marissa? Check her out at her- Website- Instagram- TikTok- Facebook GroupSupport the show (

“90% of professionals have what they need to take control and pivot their career in a way that makes sense for what they value in this season of life.” Powerful, isn't it? That quote comes from our newest podcast guest feature, Julia Toothacre! Julia is a coffee lover, planner nerd, and dog mom who has spent the last 10 years, working with hundreds of clients to help them find clarity in their career path and develop action plans to take the steps necessary to get them where they want to go in their career. She started this journey in a counseling-focused master of science program where her “back then” passion was working with college students. She spent 8 years working in higher education in various roles within university career offices as well as coaching and creating career programs. It is with that experience that she was able to create a career management and advancement program that is everything you need to get where you want to go. Take a moment to see if you resonate with this:  “Most professionals fall into their career through a well-meaning mentor or connection only to realize years later they hate what they do. They keep climbing the corporate ladder and wake up one day to the realization that they have lost control of their future.”  Is that you? Julia found her niche and passion working with new and mid-career managers who have lost their way, are in toxic environments or are so high-achieving they don't know where they fit in the working world.  I highly encourage you to join us for this week's episode! It is one that you don't want to miss!Connect with Julia! - Instagram- Facebook- LinkedIn- Podcast - WebsiteDon't forget, I am also offering a my Q1 Masterclass on Tuesday Januray 25 at 7:00 p.m. .You can learn more here. Support the show (

How did she get on this path, you ask?Melissa was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at just 14 years old. As I am sure you can imagine, managing diabetes as a young teenager was a struggle. However, Melissa didn't let that slow her down. She took the time to learn about her body and what it needs. After finding her balance, she wanted to share that with other busy working women.   ​So, Melissa created the S.H.R.E.D. Framework, a foundation of 5-Key Intentions, easy steps to build your core health strategy.  Practicing these steps consistently has helped her thrive through diabetic retinopathy, menopause, empty nest, and life's curve balls, all while balancing blood sugar.  Here is what she said, ​“I have lived with insulin dependent diabetes (type 1) for 39 years. Through personally understanding the daily challenges of this chronic disease, I decided to specialize in this area to help other women achieve full health.
