If you’re here then chances are you’re at that moment where you know you’re ready to take charge of your mental health. That feeling of - I’m so sick of bipolar / anxiety / depression - I can’t keep going on like this.
I remember when I had that moment..
First in 2011 when I punched myself in the face, gave myself a black eye, & had my boyfriend at the time threaten to “have me put away”.
Then again in 2012 when my isolating behavior started to cause issues at the beginning of my relationship with my now husband.
Aaaand again in 2013 when I found out I was pregnant with our first daughter, because now my unhealthy habits were affecting another human being.
AND FREAKING AGAIN in 2016 when I saw my 3 year old punch a wall out of anger & knew exactly where she learned the behavior from.
So, no matter which a-ha moment you’re on with your own mental health journey, just know - wherever you are is completely fine. There’s no shame in wherever you’re at.
Then comes the inevitable question of …. But how?
For me the ever changing cocktail of antidepressants, mood stabilizers, anti-psychotics, & sedatives didn’t really give me that freedom & happiness I was looking for.
One therapist thought that whatever beef was going on between me & my sister was the key to all my problems - another tried to see if shocking me would do the trick - and another just repeated the “how are we doing today?” with no real tangible advice loop.
Then everyone’s inevitable “just think positive” tip got real old, real quick.
And my teen years spent trying to “fix” things with alcohol, a hefty caffeine & sugar addiction, along with searching for “prince charming” to make it better clearly didn’t work.
If you’ve been down any of those tracks my heart goes out to you. Because with each attempt, I know how much it can leave you feeling more broken / a failure / hopeless. It sucks.
This isn't the end though. Just because someone else’s “way of getting better” didn’t work for you does not mean you are some extra complicated case to solve. On the contrary, the freedom & happiness you’re looking for is in the last place you’d ever think to look…
Your own brain.
I know, it doesn’t seem quite right. I had a brain hearing voices that weren’t there, a brain convincing me to hurt myself on a regular basis, a brain that was enemy number one & exhausting beyond all get out because it wouldn’t shut up. A brain that attempted ending my life on more than one occasion. But it's the truth.
The inside cover of my old journal is just a tiny glance at that.
None of those other “ways of getting better” really worked because someone else was acting as if they knew you better than you know yourself. But the truth is - you’re the expert. You know how to Beat The B.A.D. in a way that’s going to work best for you. And that’s what I’m here to help you with - to help you find your own answers.
That way you don’t have to spend nearly 10 years figuring out how to freaking help yourself like I did.
Because that’s self empowerment - that’s how you build up that big beautiful mental B.L.T. (belief, love, & trust) within yourself. That’s happiness & freedom.
And life doesn’t have to pause for you to take your life back from mental illness - goodness knows it didn’t for me. Between finishing college, getting married, having two babies, purchasing our first home, starting my own business, & so much more.
I am living, breathing proof that you can do this. That you can not only control this, but actually live free of it if you so choose.
And we can both show the psychiatrist that told me at the age of 13 that “I’d just have to live with this the rest of my life” that he can take a back seat!
Even through a blacked out childhood, bullying, loss, rape, self harm, suicide attempts, etc. - it’s still possible. And it doesn’t have to be as complicated as we’ve been led to believe.
Is it work? Heck yes. But it’s the most rewarding & empowering work you’ll ever do! And in the process you learn the best skills for you to navigate any life situation - something a magic pill or prince charming can’t give you.
And let me be so straight with you - you won’t find any fancy letters or credentials here. I roll with a tangible real world approach that’s backed by life experience & hundreds of hours with my nose in books broadening my perspective. What I have discovered though, over my 20 years of combined first hand experience with bipolar, anxiety, & depression, overcoming the trifecta of mental illness, & coaching others is - what beats the B.A.D. also keeps the B.A.D. away.
Let me show you how we make it happen.
When you join the program, you’ll get to explore our Support Tool Kit & get started right away with Module 1: Forgive & Face Forward. Don't worry, this program is built to go with whatever pace works best for you (no feeling behind!). And we'll double down on the don't worry, because I'll be right there cheering you on and helping to keep you motivated so that you keep making progress.
We start with self love to give you a solid foundation that will help you continue through the program.

Watch this video to get an inside tour of B.T.B. & see how the program is set up to best help you!
I pinky promise, your life will be changed for the better after you go through the entire program & do the work along the way. I haven’t had a single student go through that it didn’t work for.
Seriously, you can read what they have to say below.
And I know investing in your mental health can feel like something that can easily be put on the back burner until “a better time” or because “it’s not that bad” or “you can’t afford it” but you know as well as I do that your mental health affects everything else (relationships, work, home, etc.) & it needs to be a legit priority.
I also believe that if you're ready to help yourself, it shouldn't be something that weighs on you financially - if you wanted to rack up big and potentially life long bills, the meds & therapy route has that covered. You CAN learn how to support yourself & have a community of people who support you simply because they care.
And if it’s worth anything, I believe in you.
The modules unlock when you're ready to move forward, 9 easy videos (20-30 min each), along with frameworks & journal prompts to help you put what you learn into action.
Encouragement, connection, and advice from me & other students in our safe community. Weekly motivation emails. Along with optional 1:1 support if you need it.
You'll always have BTB to rely on with the program material, support tools, the Facebook group, AND any upgrades the program goes through in the future.
Let's get this amazing journey started!
And if you're in the mental space to get started, now is the best time to join so that you can act on positive intention over the B.A.D.
Pick whichever payment option works best for you below!
I'd be more than happy to talk with you! I most definitely want you to feel good about making this decision to move forward, Beat The B.A.D., and transform your life!
I know that it's not always the most comfortable thing to reach out and chat with someone new (especially if you're dealing with anxiety). Just know that I truly care about you and what you're going through, and us chatting will feel less like a consultation and more like two friends chatting - I mean, I can't go a whole conversation without squeezing in some fun!
Here's how you can reach out:
"That's one of the things that I learned from this course and Olivia, we are in control of ourselves, we can reach mental stability, the cure is in our hands.
Today I feel that I am in control, I am evolving everyday towards the better. I managed to have the BEAT THE BAD mindset thanks to Olivia, whose an incredible person full of positive vibes and have a very big heart.
For those who are reading this, have faith!! You can do it!!"
“Where to begin lol. There were so many successes it's amazing! I don't want to cut anymore. I look for lessons instead of viewing everything as defeat. I look for the light in every situation. I am embracing myself and truly believing in my dreams and goals. I make plans and act on them. I communicate with myself and people in a clear kind way.
I feel so light and full of joy since starting this program. I have every piece of love to offer to Olivia and the work she is doing with Beat the B.A.D. She has changed my life and I am so grateful."
"Olivia has been amazing. The podcasts have been amazing. Beat the B.A.D. has been amazing. The other members of our group have been awesome. Olivia puts compassion, heart and soul into being the best of the best when it comes to being a mental health coach and it shows.
She understands the struggles because she has lived it. Whether it is anxiety, depression and/or bi-polar, there is no reason to put off your health and happiness any longer."
“The structured programming over 8 weeks was manageable and came at a rate in which I really felt I could take in the information and make some valuable change before moving on to the next module.
By participating in the program, I feel like my emotional tool box is full now, with so many skills to keep myself happy, well, and my family and friends safe and sound in my presence.
I’m forever grateful for her insight, encouragement and good spirits through the process. Olivia has been such an inspiration and guide for me."
“I feel WAY more confident in my own skin and in what I am capable of. So much so that I finally asked to advance at work (something I have felt scared to do for over 5 years!!!), and got it!
My boyfriend and family started noticing a difference after the first few weeks and I am definitely noticing changes in myself. For some people all of this comes naturally, and asking for help is so scary - but working with Olivia feels like you’re talking to a friend!"
“I have a better grasp on how to handle fear moments when they pop up. I feel stronger. I feel like I can face things in the world a lot easier. I know anxiety may try to creep up but I don't have to let it.
Beat The B.A.D. is like a beautiful red sky sunrise after a category 4 hurricane filled night. No matter how much damage has been done, you can still wake up to a new beautiful day feeling refreshed. YOU can make the change! It's there, if you will just do the work to see the sunrise inside of you."
“When Olivia Told me I could beat the B.A.D., I desperately wanted to believe her but didn't think it was in my future. 8 months later, it hit me that not only had I beaten debilitating anxiety & depression that had caused me so much trouble, heartbreak, and struggle over the course of 7 years, but now I am THRIVING in my life!
Throw in the fact that I am feeling genuine kindness, forgiveness, and love towards myself on a level that I don't think I've ever truly known, and I am feeling like I'm finally the version of myself I'm meant to be!"
“After finishing Beat The B.A.D. I felt so light. Like a burden had been lifted off my back. I was able to see my life with a future again. I am able to stand up for myself. Not to accept the unacceptable in my life. The strength to eliminate toxic people. I was able to get back to the best version of myself. Strong, confident, and self assured. I love the person I am now. And I also know that I am deserving of that love!!!
Don’t hesitate! Just do it. Do the program for yourself. And everyone and everything else will follow (and fall into place the way it’s meant it be). You owe it to yourself! You deserve to live a life of happiness. A life filled with joy and positivity."
Life was NOT easy. I was struggling with debilitating anxiety and depression. It limited me my entire life and I hid it well. But now, I finally have control of my anxiety and depression and I'm starting to love myself and my life in a way I never thought was imaginable.
Beat the bad taught me that all the answers were inside myself the whole time and I just had to have enough confidence and trust in myself to be able to conquer it. I HIGHLY recommend Olivia. She has literally saved my life and she can help you too!
I had been dealing with the B.A.D. for over 15 years. It has been eight months since I started the course and I have very small if any run-ins with the BAD nowadays which is amazing! Not only did conquering this change my life but it changed my perspective on what I can do and how I approach things. It’s been a massive life switch for me and I am forever grateful to Olivia.
Beat the bad has given me my power back in a way I truly did not think was possible. If you have tried everything like I had, stop right here - this program is all you’ll ever need. Do it, you won’t regret it! We only have one life people, it’s not a dress rehearsal - go get after it!
If you've been interested in what it takes to Beat The B.A.D. - this is the class for you!
I'll be walking you through the 3 things you need to focus on to create empowered freedom from bipolar, anxiety, & depression, along with common mistakes people make, & how to avoid them.
