I am so thankful you’re here. If you landed on this page it’s not by accident. It’s because you are seeking, wanting and needing more than you have right now. You feel stuck— unsure of who you are or maybe unclear about what you want. And that’s okay.
I launched my coaching practice to help women and entrepreneurs gain the clarity, certainty, courage and confidence to live fulfilling lives, bounce back from the unexpected and have a happy everything!
I’d love for you to join them.
But first let me tell you a little more about me.
I WANT TO SEE YOU BE BRAVE
THE COURAGE IN ME SEES THE COURAGE IN YOU
WHO WERE YOU CREATED TO BE?
I’m Caressa J. and it’s my calling to help you to live a confident, courageous life.
A life that you desire instead of the one the world says you deserve.
A life that is fueled by your passion and fired up by your purpose.
I was created to help you to embrace the truth that you are enough.
I want you to see yourself as bold and beautiful.
I want you to see yourself overflowing with purpose and potential.
I want you to see yourself happy.
And I want to see you be brave enough to have it all.
I want to help you to embrace your truth.
The truth that you are enough.
The truth that you have something inside of you that is so seriously significant that the world cannot do without it.
The truth that you more powerful than you know.
I can speak to you from a place of power, of purpose—of peace—because I’m finally here. Life has taken me to some places and through some things, and it was during some of the most uncertain moments of my life that I discovered my destiny. My life has been this windy road of wondering, who I was, where I should be and what I should do. Yet I’ve always felt this stirring in my soul to help women to get to the other side of something—uncertainty, insecurity, loss, heartbreak—and it is always in those spaces, those conversations, those moments, where I feel most alive. Because I know what waits for her on the other side is so possible and so extraordinary.
Love. Lived Dreams. Purpose. Happiness.
And so that has become the essence of my work. Helping women to believe again. To feel alive again. To find the people, the purpose, the life that stirs their souls. To find the courage to chase it and the heart to live it.
To have a happy everything.
WHAT I BELIEVE
I believe a woman should be loved.
I believe she deserves a fulfilled, meaningful life.
I believe she deserves a fresh start—as often as necessary.
I believe that she should live a beautiful life, surrounded by beautiful things, beautiful dreams and beautiful visions.
I believe there is no such thing as a dream too wild or too big.
I believe a woman should wake up on fire for something.
I believe every woman has a powerful, extraordinary calling on her life.
I believe she should be happy.
YOU KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW
YOU KNOW LIKE I KNOW
You know, deep inside, that you deserve happiness. You want a life that feels amazing, that feels full, feels true.
You know you want a life that makes you feel alive.
You want a life of courage, of clarity, of creativity—of purpose.
You know you want to be happy. Satisfied. Fulfilled. Loved.
You know you want to be enough.
Well guess what? You can be. You will be. You are.
FROM NOW ON…
FROM THIS MOMENT ON…
WHAT I WANT FOR YOU
Every book, every course, every inboxed love note, every talk that I create is about getting you to your happy. And for me, that means every part of you. Your relationships. Your 9 to 5. Your business. Your body. Your heart. Each and every beautiful piece, inch and space of you. It all makes you who you are. And it all counts.
I want to bring you out. I want to build you up. I want to encourage and empower you to be brave—wherever life takes you. Even when you’re broken. Even when you feel your life is good enough, but you know there has to be more out there for you. Even when you feel like it’s time to peek around the corner of possibility and see where your purpose leads you.
Because I love it when you’re happy.

Life wasn’t always this hard.
It may be difficult to remember right now, but there was a time when you were truly happy. You trusted people and yourself. You looked in the mirror and liked what you saw. You loved without reservation or hesitation. Your heart was open to giving and receiving love.
You were free.
And then something changed.
You tried to stand up for yourself, to take your life back, to get out. But they told you no one else would want you, that you had nowhere else to go. You stayed. So now you feel weak.
You lost someone or something who you deeply loved. You began to withdraw from the people around you. So you felt more and more isolated and confused.
Could it be that…
You pursued something you were passionate about and it didn’t work. So now you’ve given up on your dreams. You shared your dreams with someone you trusted. And they told you it wasn’t possible for you. So you began to believe that you weren’t enough—not sexy enough, not smart enough, not skinny enough. You felt ugly and unworthy, so you started seeking validation from the outside (like men, material things or money) hoping they or it could make you feel better about you. You were looking for happiness, but you felt superficial—fake.
But there’s always a Life Saver…
Somewhere, deep inside, you still hear God’s voice. It’s a faint whisper, urging you to reach out and get help. You feel it.
Today is the day that you listen.
None of it was your fault. You are not alone. You are not weak.
Your dignity is not destroyed. Your heart can heal. You deserve to be loved.
Don’t be embarrassed by your experiences. Embrace them. You needed everything you’ve been through to bring you to this moment right now. Those struggles shaped you. That pressure molded you, just like a diamond, you, too, were divinely created to shine. The loss was necessary to polish you.
Stop telling yourself that you aren’t enough, because it’s not true. Stop believing what he or anyone else ever said about you. Stop being afraid to love. Stop expecting that someone else will come and put the pieces of your life back together again. Stop waiting for the apologies that will never come.
Forgive them. Forgive yourself. Finally… Set yourself free.
Face your pain. It is there so that you will heal. Your pain is where your power is.
You were happy once. You can be again. Make the decision. Take the step.
I know you can do it, because I did.
Are you ready? LET’S GO!
