Are You Ready To


Your Life?

Don’t you just know

that there’s more?

Don’t you just know that it’s possible to have more, do more, be more, experience more?

More joy, more love, more hope, more success, more freedom, more healing, more peace, more safety, just more?

Don’t you just know that where you’re at is not all that there is?

Don’t you just know that there’s more?

Are you ready to reclaim your life?



 I can help you do it!

Hi, I’m Aideen T. Finnola, but you can call me Aidy.

I'm a professional life coach, speaker, and author.

I’m an unapologetic and empowered survivor of and thriver after physical, emotional, psychological, and religious abuse. I’m an ex-community kid and straight spouse. I was raised by abusive parents who were zealous members of a fundamentalist, evangelical, charismatic, ecumenical covenant community cult. After I left the cult, I was married for twenty years to a closeted gay man who was emotionally and psychologically abusive. 

I’m unapologetic, meaning I don’t mince words about abuse.

I don’t make excuses for my abusers and say things like “They meant well." and "I know they loved me.” I'm empowered, meaning I don't live my life with a victim mentality. I was victimized, but I am not a victim.

Are You Ready To Reclaim Your Life?

I made it through the darkest and most painful days of my life because of the support and inspiration of others who had made it through their darkest and most painful days.


In return, it is my purpose to support and inspire others. 

I coach my clients with compassion, unique insight, and wisdom. I provide practical tools to support my clients in transmuting their pain into empowerment.

I am a professionally trained life coach and, if this stuff is important to you, I also have a BAEd degree in history and secondary education and an AA degree + Professional Certificate in interior design. I've taught at both the high school and college levels and I've won four state level ASID Design Excellence awards.

For me, reclaiming my life

 is an ongoing process.

I am, have always been, and always will be obsessed with trying to figure life out! I most certainly haven't figured it out yet and probably never will. But I'm constantly discovering new insights from living my reclaimed life with empowerment. And I love sharing those insights with you!


I invite you to learn along with me because the human experience is meant to be collaborative. After all, that's why I wrote my book in the first place! For my latest nuggets of wisdom and insight, check out my video blog.
