Professional eliminator that will be your lifestyle designer and coach! I'm here to help you build mental wealth.


The type of person you are, and the type of person you'll grow into, is entirely based on your values.

Let's start by identifying what matters to you the most, what your goals are, and lastly we'll follow-up with a needs assessment. After that, we'll chart out all our steps and milestones on a project plan so we know exactly what outcomes you will achieve, and why!

If you want to know a bit more about my methodology to personal development & leadership before chatting with me, check out Kim Scott's "Radical Candor"". I can't wait to hear what you read about it!


No one knows how to get rid of things the way I do. Growing up, I hated having "stuff". It simply got in the way of things that really mattered, like being fulfilled. 

As the daughter of Ecuadorian immigrants, I was raised frugally. However, I also know that when things became more stable, my family had the tendency to accumulate duplicates "just in case". Fast forward, and I am now a Six Sigma Yellow belt who uses process improvement strategy to coach folks who experience poverty mentality, impostor syndrome, and the psychological struggles that lead people to distract from their mental health. 

With more than a decades worth of work, a certification in education, and a background in psychology, I know exactly where I want to be: on the frontlines, teaching folks how to win their daily battles with emotional, cognitive, and psychological security. But it's more than just acquiring a sense of mental stability. It's about purpose; it's about thriving. Subsequently, I founded my consultancy Gozar. In Spanish, "gozar" means to enjoy. It's my lifes mission to coach people from a place of mental health to mental wealth, using minimalisms principal tenet of mindfulness.  

There's so much more that I could share with you, but I prefer connecting 1:1. So let's hop on a call and chat through how I can bring you a minimalist coaching approach for maximum mental wealth and personal growth.
