About Me

The bits of you that are broken,
the bits of you that are damaged,
do not see them that way.

Instead see them as slowly being filled with beautiful experiences and truths
you have learned from the damage,
the equivalent of lacquered gold.

I want you to remember, you are not a broken thing.
Instead, you are a human full of incredible and wonderful experience,
made of the same things swords and diamonds are made of.

You are a survivor, my darling, and
I salute you for everything you have been through,
and for making the universe so proud,
so very proud of what you have become.

If I were to wager a guess, I would say that everyone has experienced damage or trauma in some way - myself included. For a very long time, I let my trauma define me and limit me. The pain of my trauma shaped every day and kept me prisoner. Half of my life I did not feel or act like myself. This shattered a lot of dreams and took a lot of time and energy, but in the end, my journey has brought me here.

It wasn't until I found alternative and complementary therapies that I was finally able to heal and take my life back. The very fact that I am here today, I owe to some incredibly supportive and intuitive practitioners, coaches, and therapists. Understanding how difficult it had been to find help, especially with mental distress, anxiety, and chronic pain, I decided to learn more about complementary therapies.

At first, I used the methods and techniques only on myself. I always wanted to experience the results for myself first, to ensure the results were real for me. As my healing progressed and I was cautiously optimistic, my family and friends started to notice the difference. With time, I was so amazed by the different therapies that I wanted to tell everyone about my experience.

This desire to share turned into a desire to want to help as many people as I could. I watched many of my friends struggle with their traumas and some lost their lives in the end. Many could not get access to the help they needed and many were not aware that complementary therapies even existed. Standing on the sidelines, unable to help, was difficult and often unbearable.

Everyone deserves to heal and live the life they have dreamed of. Sometimes it just takes a helping hand and other times working with a practitioner solo in addition to your doctor can make a huge difference. Over the past few years, I have studied and practiced continuously to support others as a Life Coach, HeartMath Practitioner, NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, Yoga Teacher, Meditation Guide, and Reiki Healer.

My focus is helping women find their mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing again. This includes healing, re-focusing on yourself, self-care, yoga, meditation, NLP, hypnotherapy, and life coaching to go after the life that's fulfilling and meaningful to you. Sometimes it's hard to see the forest for all the trees and we work together to sort through stress and burnout to bring clarity. It's up to you to find what works best for you and I am here to support you as a Wellbeing Coach and expert companion on your journey.

Sending you love and courage!
