I bring almost two decades of my training, experience and skills to help you find your freedom and connection.
Ever since I was a child intuition and grace have guided my life. I have always sensed the magic and mystery that is alive in this world, and been blessed with feeling a living connection to the divine. I always wanted to help others in some capacity or other. I have always known there was more to life then what was “seen.” However, I didn’t understand or have a perspective on this when I was young.
For much of my life I have struggled.
I struggled from a very young child until my 30’s with severe anxiety, phobias, OCD, chronic illness, chronic pain, depression, eating disorders (bulimia, binge eating, compulsive overeating, anorexia), self injurious and suicidal behaviors and impulses, and severe PTSD. This was all a response to, and management of, the experience of long-term Severe Childhood Trauma & Abuse (sexual, physical, & emotional)
This emotional, physical, and spiritual pain drove me to seek help through so many avenues.
I was engaged in several long-term intensive psychotherapies, I undertook training in various healing and therapeutic modalities (MA in Clinical Psychology, Hakomi Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Therapy, Expressive Arts, Imago Therapy, Sensory-Motor Psychotherapy for Trauma, Reiki Master Teacher Training, Eating Psychology Coach Training, and Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training, Transformational Coach, Certification in Health Coaching from IIN).
Additionally, I undertook studying and practicing various emotional and spiritual healing methods. Through the various therapies and my own healing work and training I healed my relationship with food and my body.
However, I still struggled horribly with fears, anxiety, phobias, depression, etc.
In 2011 I had a spiritual awakening; where in one night on retreat with Caroline Myss, after a prayer, everything changed.
By the Grace of God, the crippling effect of my panic and fear, my deep depression as well as self-injurious impulses, and the most intense aspects of my OCD were lifted, and I was free.
While I still have some anxieties and fears, they are no longer incapacitating as they were before this spiritual healing.
Do I still have pain from some chronic physical conditions? … yes, but I’m working on healing those.
Now when I look back on all my “suffering” and my “Trauma” I see it as a tremendous teaching and that it offered hidden gifts I am still unpacking. It made me who I am today and I would not change one thing.
You see my early experiences of pain and suffering became a catalyst for my life-long seeking of solutions for myself and for others. It was my pain and fear that was what ultimately helped me transform those experiences into doorways to freedom.
Using every bit of my life, from my childhood experiences of abuse, to my graduate and post-graduate training in psychology, mindfulness-based body approaches and healing modalities, and my years of in-depth spiritual training , I bring to bear almost two decades of my experience and skills to help you find your freedom and connection.
My calling is to continue to inspire, uplift, empower and teach all who are struggling so that they too can overcome fear and anxiety and be free to have a life that is not limited by their past or beliefs .
So rather than feeling stuck, lost, and confused, you can have increased clarity, hope and wholeness.
To help you connect with and tune into your heart, and learn to listen to and trust your intuition.
To support you in releasing blocks that keep you stuck and suffering . To give you a direct sense that you are indeed a living part of something greater than your individual self. Helping you shift your energy and perception, and be able to live life more from Love rather than Fear.
Love & Grace,
