How did I become a healer and coach?
I had a defining moment 10 years ago that brought me to where I am now – reading energy, healing disruptive emotional energy patterns, and guiding or mentoring people like you on how to get unstuck from your patterns and heal your past wounds so you can begin building what you want more of in life.
That defining story is interesting. I mean, I became a mom, lost my career to the economy, and my health hit rock bottom. I wasn’t able to interact with and care for my daughter the way I felt she deserved, I was operating at bare-minimum at my best moments. I saw 17 specialists who ran test after test without finding anything to explain my physical symptoms. The icing on the cake was that the whole time I sought medical answers, I started hearing a rather loud voice in my head telling me “I would never find answers outside of myself, I would have to heal myself from within”. I didn’t even know what the hell that meant! I IGNORED THE CRAP OUT OF THAT VOICE! On top of my failing physical health, my anxiety was at an all-time high. I was terrified to tell anyone for fear they think I was losing my mind. I was desperate for help and I saw no light at the end of the tunnel. I felt so far from being able to help myself, I needed someone to help me.
So, what happened? Well, finally, that voice became so loud it actually overshadowed the last specialists voice telling me there was nothing more to do for me, except send me to the Mayo Clinic. It was so loud, I ended up sitting in my car in the parking lot of the doctors office and responding to the voice. I said, dripping with sarcasm, “Ok, I’ll do it. I’ll look within. Are you happy now?! I don’t even know what it means, but I’ll do it”…to which I immediately knew I would seek alternative treatment. I found BodyTalk that same day, which I just knew would change my life and direct my career path going forward.
My defining moment story is all well and good but, in all honesty, it is all the stuff that came before I hit rock bottom that’s more significant. Before my foundation crumbled underneath me, I was out in the world doing what I thought I should be doing – career, relationship, repeat. I kept busy and had fun while dating and working and traveling the world as much as possible. From the outside, my life appeared to be successful. On the inside, I was an anxious mess and overwhelmed physically, mentally, and emotionally. I did not love myself, I secretly thought everyone hated me, and I had a difficult time functioning in public places, as well as in relationships. I lacked self-worth, felt powerless most of the time, and my inner voice was a raging asshole. I was my own worst enemy and I barely even recognized myself.
I now know why I was in the state I was in:
- I had an emotionally abusive childhood relationship with one of my parents. That angry, unkind voice became my inner voice and the foundation for my subconscious beliefs about myself and my place in the world. My past pain, trauma, and feelings on top of what someone told me out of anger became my own story – a false story – being retold and re-lived every day.
- I have always been an Empath (highly sensitive to other people and environments) and was taking on everybody else’s crap – their pain, emotions, and energy – as my own. It is a heavy burden to carry, one that makes it difficult to know what is yours and what isn’t and is often referred to as akin to a curse (which is not true, if you know how to use it as a gift!).
- I didn’t have any self-care in place, in fact, I often put my own needs last and when I did something for myself, I lacked the knowledge or guidance to take action focused on my individual needs.
The stuff I experienced before my defining moment is the stuff that taught me how to unpack my shit so I could remember who I am, take back my power, let go of my past story, and start creating the life I was longing for. That stuff is what really brought me to my defining moment and reminded me that I’ve always been an intuitive healer, having childhood memories of laying hands on my grandma to make her feel better. It reminded me that I’ve always heard my guides, just not as loudly or clearly as I did in the doctor’s office and ever since. I have always been able to read energy, sense people’s emotions,and understand animals. I even experience the energy of trees, rocks, water, and the moon. For years I had cut off my roots and my intuition in order to survive, but as I peeled off the layers and took actions to help align my body, mind, and spirit it all became more balanced.
Through extensive, advanced training in energy healing modalities like Bodytalk and Reiki, quantum healing, kinesiology, and energy psychology. By helping other heal and taking daily action to heal my own wounds, I have been reminded that this who I’ve always been: an intuitive, a healer, an energy reader, and a facilitator of healing. I have worked, trained, and practiced hard to feel safe being my authentic self. I hope to be able to share my gifts and knowledge with you through either 1:1 or group sessions, mentoring programs that guide you toward self-healing, or any of the resources I’ve made available to inform, inspire, and empower you.
Now I work with people just like you who are:
- Rediscovering themselves or wanting to do so
- Waking up or seeking purpose
- Cannot get a different cycle in relationship
- Stuck in cycle or pattern of some sort
- Holding onto crap that needs to be unpacked or let go
- Feeling disconnected from themselves, others, and/or the world
- Lacking joy (or something) in life
- Driven to heal or help themselves and others in some way
- Feel powerless or want to feel more empowered
- Overwhelmingly sensitive to people and environment or identify as an Empath
What makes me different from other Energy Healers, Intuitives, and Coaches/Mentors?
I make people feel safe. My clients say I’m easy to talk to and I make them feel comfortable. I work on the inner and outer principles for success and look at your LIFE from an organic and spiritual perspective. Because I’m not delicate, you’ll always get straight to the point quick and honest response from me.
I’m concerned with how to get you UNSTUCK. You may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your success and how to get rid of it so you can start getting results (and I throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!)
I channel information from your energy, guides, or higher self. I uncover the energetic pathways that indicate poor function, blocks in communication and disrupted pathways. These energetic pathologies are frequently causing symptoms or issues in your body, mind, behavior, relationships, or life!
My approach is always from a whole-person perspective and seeking what is in your highest and best needs, never my own agenda. Quite frankly, I won’t operate from YOUR agenda either, at least not your conscious agenda, because we all have blind-spots and if you knew exactly what you needed, you’d already be doing it!
I will always hold a safe space without judgment for you to bring awareness and healing to a new level. I’m also going to put you to work for yourself because the greatest change always comes from within.
What type of personality do I work best with?
I work best with those who are willing to be coached or guided, are willing to take action and responsibility for themselves, are open to new perspectives, and trust the process. Having a realistic outlook that doing the healing work will not eliminate ups/downs from your life, rather it will teach them how to ride the waves with greater ease and faster recovery when you wipe out.
What is YOUR part in this type of healing?
I facilitate healing at an energetic level, which then trickles down into the body and mind. In order to create deep, lasting change it is necessary for YOU to take action FOR YOURSELF. I teach quick, simple tools that provide a means of continuous (self)care, as well as when and how to use them effectively. It’s like self-care triage to help you heal and process emotions. The healing session or program is the catalyst for balance and change, but your daily actions are what takes the healing deeper. This is why no matter how you choose to work with me, you will have access to simple actions for daily practice and times of triage to put in your toolbox.
It is also ideal for my clients to be both committed and patient. Healing and change is a process. Most importantly, it will be necessary to be honest with yourself and with me, as well as getting in touch with your feelings as they arise.
What is a session like?
When you work with me 1:1, we meet on a video call face-to-face. I also see clients in person in Cary, NC by appointment only. We establish an intention or outcome of your session and then I connect with your energy and spirit guides. I identify the energy patterns in need of attention for release, repair, or reconfiguration within and all around your whole self, all the way to the quantum level within your cells, your ancestral energy, chakras, meridians, and more. Since every aspect of you affects everything about you – even how you are able to experience and function within the world – I look at everything. The information from your session helps bring awareness and attention to what needs healing and balancing to unpack the root causes of your issues that are often operating in your subconscious and influencing your outcomes in body, mind, emotions, relationships, and life.
Sessions include simple, focused actions to help you process and integrate the healing from your energy into all aspects of you: body, mind, emotions, environment. Often you will have some homework in the form of self-care – I cannot reiterate how important it is for you to take ACTION FOR YOURSELF to help heal to a much deeper, longer-lasting effect. After your session, I offer email support so you can ask me questions or check in about your experiences post-session.
