You're tired.

Tired of dreading workdays.

Tired of putting up with the same old BS.

Tired of spending your energy doing things you don't really want to do.


It's time.

It's time to pay attention to your own needs, instead of always prioritizing the needs of others.

It's time to figure out the next step in your life and career.


But making a change brings up a lot of fear.

"What if I take a leap of faith and it doesn't work out?"

"If I change directions, does this mean all of my hard work has been for nothing?"

"I've got bills to pay, I can't afford to take a risk like this."

"My colleagues/family/friends will think I'm crazy."


I was caught in someone else's dream.

After grad school,

I launched myself into the job hunt. Finally, I had the piece of paper that proved my expertise and was going to unlock unlimited opportunities! (Hahaha... Ha.) Not so much.

As I discovered, it wasn't so simple. After months and months of submitting applications, going to interviews, getting my hopes up, and receiving rejection letters, I was growing restless.

Until one day, I got a call from a potential employer, inviting me to an interview. This one felt good. I got the job, and shortly thereafter, I moved across the state and started working. It was everything I was looking for at the time: flexible schedule, interesting work, and most of all - a consistent paycheck that was larger than I had ever received in my life.

After working this job for a while, I started to realize it wasn't as perfect as I initially thought. The stress started to take its' toll, and after a while, I started to wonder if I wasn't the right person for the job. I was good at my job, and I enjoyed my coworkers, but something was off.

I was good at my job, and I enjoyed my coworkers, but something was off. I became miserable. I knew I had to leave, but I was afraid of leaving my clients. I was afraid of what my coworkers would think. I was afraid of what my family and friends would think; after all, wasn't I living the dream?

The truth is, I was living someone else's dream. I had to realize that the job was perfect for someone... Just not me. And while I had a strong drive to help people, I couldn't be of service if I was burnt out and miserable.

When I finally started prioritizing my own needs, I discovered that this job, while steady and secure, didn't light me up. I discovered that I deserve to do work that lights me up. I discovered that I can truly make a difference in the world if I choose to put my health and wellbeing first; because when my cup is full, I can help fill others'.

When I defined success on my own terms, decided how I wanted to feel in every area of my life, and cultivated the courage to live in authenticity, I was finally able to let go and make room for my ideal life.

"It feels like I uncovered myself. I didn't turn into someone new, I remembered myself."

When I started Soul Compass, I didn't know what I wanted; I had denied my own feelings for so long, that I didn't know which way to take my life. Through this process, I rediscovered how I want to feel, and I learned to use those feelings as a compass, which was really powerful. I feel like my feelings are my superpowers now! I feel liberated! The art element is really awesome, too, it's like a shortcut to opening up.

If you're afraid to go into this process, there's no reason to be; Monica is gentle and easy to talk to. She makes it so simple and comfortable. Plus, being afraid is a sign that tells you where you need to go; if you move past the fear, you're gonna grow.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to be an artist to participate?

Nope! Anyone can learn to use art materials as tools for self discovery. I'll even send you supplies to use during the program and keep forever!

What if I'm not going through a career transition, and I just want to experience art-based Desire Mapping?

Great! I think this process is perfect for anyone and everyone who wants MORE out of life. Anyone who wants to tap into their authenticity and infuse it into every aspect of their life. Sometimes that includes career, sometimes it doesn't.

Do I have to live in the Detroit area to participate?

Nope! We'll meet via video conferencing software, so as long as you have an internet connection, we're good.

How is this different than just reading the books?

Soul Compass incorporates The Fire Starter Sessions and The Desire Map experience to help you get closer to the life & career you desire, but the added benefit of personalized support and artistic guidance will help you go deeper than you would reading the book on your own.

Think of it like exercising. You can go to the gym on your own and have a good experience, or you could hire a personal trainer to help you exercise with focus and intention to reach your goals quickly and efficiently.

What makes The Desire Map so revolutionary?

When we set goals in our lives, we usually focus on the thing we want. Whether it's a new job, more vacations, or better quality of life. But when we set goals around things, we're actually reaching for the feeling that thing will give us. The Desire Map is a system for goal setting that works backwards - starting with how you want to feel, and only then identifying the things/experiences/environments that align with these feelings.

Not only do your goals end up more aligned with what you want, you end up achieving them a lot quicker because you have more awareness about why you want what you want.

How do you use art to help me create my ideal career?

I believe art can be used as a tool for self discovery, communication, and connection to ourselves. Art has the ability to increase the quality of mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and help us make sense of things that we can't describe with words. Through personalized and guided art-making, you'll learn how to use art to communicate your inner experience and learn from it. We'll use art as a compass on the map of your desires.
