About me.png

I have helped to guide and transform the lives of many women for over the last 10 years working in the Social Services field. I specialize working with individuals who are survivors of trauma. Due to my well versed experience in the Social Work field, I love infusing my Coaching Therapy with both clinical and spiritual knowledge. It is my passion to guide individuals to connect their mind, body, heart and soul throughout the healing process. Taking a multi-dimensional approach to healing is my route as there are so many intricate layers to trauma. And every individuals journey is so unique! 

Trust me when I say that I know this journey is challenging. I too am a survivor of abuse and sexual violence. Because I know what it is like and have worked through so much of my own trauma, I have so many helpful tools to teach you so that you too can learn how to heal yourself. I have worked with some of the most amazing professionals and healers, continue to pursue my self-development/healing and grow my relationship with myself. Through my own experiences, I have been and continue to be an exceptional leader! I am here to teach you how to be just as exceptional in leading and healing in your own journey.

Why do I do the work that I do.png

I have been brought to this Earth to teach people how to feel better about themselves so that they can experience life in the most beautiful way. I genuinely in my heart want to guide people to heal from their traumas so that they can see how completely worth it is on the other side.

I do this work because I myself know what it feels like to be in the most darkest place feeling so lost in hope and despair. I want to show people that we do not have to stay there. That life can be beautiful if we open our hearts up to feeling and healing.

I have all the tools, resources, pure intentions and so much more to share. If I was able to change my life around, so can you, I promise.

Given that this work is my passion and purpose, rest assured that you will be in the most loving hands.

My Story
My Story.png

Throughout my life, I have experienced varying forms of abuse, co-dependency, manipulation and other forms of maltreatment. Coming into my early adulthood, as I started to form my own relationship with myself and with others, I noticed that I did not feel safe to be myself. I did not feel safe in my body. I never felt safe to use my voice in fear of being minimized and rejected. I always felt judged, because I was so different from everyone else. I felt emotions so much more deeply than others, it made me think that something was wrong with me. I would sacrifice what I knew in my heart to be true for me, just to be loved and accepted by others. I did this for a very long time. It was a survival coping mechanism I knew very well, and it worked! Until it didn’t…

That voice within me that kept trying to speak up, that kept encouraging me to be myself and use my own unique voice started to get louder and angrier. The amount of self-betrayal I put myself through started to show up in my body. I was constantly sick both physically and mentally. All of my relationships around me were a HOT MESS! Including the relationship with myself! Everything just felt like CHAOS!

Thankfully, I had an amazing therapist who has been a part of my life for almost 10 years and amazing Life Coaches/ Healers who truly helped me to embody everything I am today. My healing journey has multiple layers from clinical therapy to reiki healing to deep inner child and shadow work to participating in beautiful plant medicine ceremonies & more! I quickly realized there is no one journey to healing. The person I thank the most though, is me. I got myself through this life long journey of suffering. I showed up and I did the work. I still continue to do the work as we speak because I thrive on personal growth and living each day with more empowerment and a deep sense of passion!

And to be honest, there are still things that happen to me up until today that shake my world. But now, I am in a healthier headspace to navigate through it all from a more grounded place. I have extensive experience working with my own trauma and the ones of others as well, which has gifted me with knowledge and wisdom. I got to re-write my story. I turned my pain into passion & wisdom! I chose me!

Guess what? So can you. You pain and suffering is so real and I see you. But this pain does not have to be the end of your story, You DO NOT have to live in this suffering. If you truly want to change your life, YOU CAN! It is 100% possible!

Sometimes we just need the right guidance, support and love that we have never experienced before. We get so used to being belittled, and brainwashed into thinking that our negative thoughts about ourselves are actually true! When in reality, all of our souls are beautiful and evolving if you permit it to do so. Will you give yourself permission to be loved by yourself on a deeper level? Will you give yourself permission to face the darkness so that you may enter your own world of light? Will you give yourself permission to change your whole perspective of who you truly are in your heart? Will you allow yourself to create the life you have dreamed of? One that is LOVING, KIND, SAFE, PEACEFUL, FORGIVING, FUN, ABUNDANT and so much more! I want this for you because I believe every human on this Earth deserves all of this. Including YOU!

I want to be your guide, your support and the love you need to get through this journey.

Let’s re-write your journey together!
