My Journey

As a highly empathic and creative being, I suffered great trauma at a young age in the form of extreme sexual and emotional abuse. In fact, my bright and tender child self lived surrounded by drama, trauma, and chaos. This led to decades of trauma-informed choices, which included abusive relationships, unhealthy ways of being in my body and toxic ways of relating to others and life. I struggled with shame, eating issues, anxiety, addiction, loneliness, isolation, codependency and too many more negative side effects to name.  More importantly, my early childhood experiences led to an overwhelming feeling of disempowerment. Thankfully, my destiny was not to stay stuck in that place.

 

Sincerely wanting more for myself and my life, I tried traditional therapy but it didn’t really help. My entrenched patterns weren’t changing no matter how much I tried to heal them through traditional means. I became obsessed with healing and my obsession led me on the journey that my soul came to Earth to take. The trauma was not the end of my story. It was only the beginning. I began studying my relationship to food, to my body, to my friends and family, and to my outer experience. I learned as much as I could about healing trauma and PTSD through yoga, energy healing, the mind and body connection, nutrition, transformational thought work, and healing practices from around the world. My passion was so ignited that I got certified in the very modalities that saved me. As my learning progressed, I became more…me, but without all of the obstacles and self sabotaging behaviors. I became whole, peaceful, at home in my body. I became confident, a successful business owner. I created healthy, authentic and mutual relationships. I recognized my intrinsic value. I became free from the burdens of the past. 

 

I truly believe that every soul who experiences pain and trauma has the opportunity to transform from the wounded healer into the healed healer and then to share what they have learned with others. This is now my greatest passion and certainly my soul’s mission. 

 

It is my passion that inspires me to offer my knowledge and experience to all who have been burdened with trauma and pain, who have felt stuck, angry, or victimized. Every client whom I work with is a sacred gift to me and should you feel that working with me is a part of your healing journey, I am deeply honored to show up for you. I know the truth about you with every fiber of my being, which is that your essence includes freedom and empowerment. If you’ve forgotten, let me assist you in shedding the layers that have dimmed your heart’s beautiful light. Transformation is the name of the game and YOU are so worth it!
