My Mission

My mission is to support individuals, couples, and small business owners in stepping into the highest version of themselves. Holding the space for you to get clear on your gifts and your strongest desires, understanding and clearing the stories and limiting beliefs that are getting in the way of you choosing heart centred goals that are in full alignment with your souls calling.

I'm an international certified life coach and have apprenticed with coaches, mentors, and shamans from around the world. I am committed to a path of personal growth and development because I have seen first hand how it's impacted my life in ways I could have never dreamed and I want to share that with you.


My Story

I'm Derek,  I choose to live life with intention every day. To be more fulfilled, purpose-driven, joyful and abundant, and in the NOW. I'm passionate about authentic connection, personal development, being creative, nature, and nourishing my body.

My partner, Jeff, and I have experienced many highs and lows throughout our 11 years together. Choosing to be in a relationship is a choice, one that brings me the most beautiful, joyful, and connecting experiences, and one that mirrors the hell out of me and forces me to be seen when I just want to hide. But I make a choice every day to love him and to be together because I love him and we are committed to being our best selves together.

We've called upon support from mentors, coaches, plant medicines, and technologies, on our journey together. They have all helped the two of us to gain new perspectives, shed old stories, and create new agreements that have allowed us to thrive for this long. The support and perspectives we called in were game changers in truly understanding each other, and ourselves on a deeper level. 

I started my coaching path in 2014 while living in Toronto and then decided it was time to move back to B.C. where we came from. Back to nature, close to family and a to pursue other dreams of ours.

Once Jeff & I moved to beautiful Victoria B.C, I opened a business called Horror Escape. I know, a coach that owns a horror attraction, doesn't seem like they fit together do they? Well the truth is, we create whatever life we want to, and I did just that.

Now I have a successful business that allows me to express myself creatively, and I get to mentor and be of service to my clients which honours my deep desire for personal development and being of service to others. I've had to master time blocking and vision setting my week to have success in both of my ventures, but I have the best of both worlds and I'm able to express myself in all of my truest forms.

Helping my tribe and my clients understand that they can have whatever life they dream of is what I came here to do. There really isn't any cap on what amount of money you can make or any limitations of what you can create in your life. We can overcome any trauma and obstacle in our lives, if we choose.
