How did I get here and why am I doing this work?
My own personal transformation through holistic and spiritual discovery work and years of extensive study and experience led me to all that I do now. My journey was long with many tears, realizations, personal epiphanies, and emotional detours. All of those experiences led me back to my authenticity, back to my soul, and to my true calling. It was truly the perfect storm that led to what is now my life’s work.
I had so much but it wasn’t enough…
I was an award winning professional Interior Designer and artist for 23 years, I loved it, and I was very good at it. Being creative fed my soul and got paid well for it…but it wasn’t enough. I was an overachiever always striving for perfection and recognition.
I was a Mom of 2 very young boys, I was a wife, I ran our household, spearheaded design committees, sat on school PTA’s, accepted the most difficult and time consuming projects, and I loved it all very much…but that also wasn’t enough. I was distracted, spread far too thin, and never fully present. I was surviving and going through the motions of my life, but I wasn’t present because my mind was always somewhere else. I was hurting in a passive agressive and controlling marriage so I did everything I could to escape it mentally, emotionally, and finally, I physically left the marriage. In hindsight, I was addicted to being busy, addicted to numbing myself from the pain of my life, and addicted to and stuck in my pain because it was comfortable and what I understood then.
I was an emotional sponge absorbing everything around me…
I was a highly sensitive person bordering on Sensory Processing Disorder, diagnosed with ADHD, and diagnosed with Bipolar II. Although I don’t claim those labels any more, I had been suffocated by them for as long as I could remember. I absorbed everything…others emotions, the energy of any environment, the world’s pain…you name it, I took it on as my own and it was slowly killing me.
Something had to give and something had to shift…
I was tired of being a distracted, irritable and not feeling like the woman that I knew was in there trying to express herself. I didn’t want any more crippling panic attacks coming out of no where. I didn’t want doctors just hurling medication at me and rushing me out on my way. I wanted to have clarity and feel peace in my heart and in my body. I didn’t want to keep hoping and begging to be understood within a marriage that was controlling and empty. I wanted to be fully present and to love my kids as the real me…the joyful beautiful me. I wanted to attract the peace, love, and joy that I longed for instead of forcing myself on it to no avail.
I found my medicine…
I was somewhat of a holistic tramp for about 5 years (insert giggle here). I had the money to try some things to help myself so I tried it all. So many interesting modalities like acupuncture, cupping, massage, psychics, and herbal supplements. Each helped in some way, but nothing made the difference until I found mindfulness and meditation. Studying and practicing mindfulness and meditation (which I thought was just going to be a passing fancy for me) was the holy grail of medicine for me. They became my light in what seemed like eternal darkness. Through mindful awareness and practicing various forms of meditation I was able to dramatically shift my perspective. Over time I was able to shift my entire way of thinking and being. My energy changed, my outlook changed and then my life changed…for the better. I was able to let go of all the things that were no longer serving me and now have all that I ever wanted and all that I ever needed.
But that awareness wasn’t just for me and my own personal transformation. It was a gift to me so that I could share it with others.
It is my calling to help others heal as I was able to heal myself…
My extensive education, experience, and empathic gifts enable me to help you deeply on every level. I’ve combined my talents as an interior designer and my gifts as a highly empathic person to create an incredibly beautiful, healing, and peaceful environment in which to offer my services.
