My life has lead me on my own journey of healing and self discovery as I have faced unanticipated storms. Following a devastating loss, I took a sabbatical for one year and I drove from Virginia to Alaska alone, seeking answers and pursuing a desire to return to my essence. As I surrounded myself by nature, I wanted to discover who I was in this new phase of my life. What were my passions, desires, beliefs, dreams? How could I find the blessings given to me in the storm that I faced?
I discovered that each of us has an inner wisdom leading and guiding us through the trials of life. This is the voice of our intuition. When I followed that guidance, I was led on an incredible journey of healing and self discovery, and unearthed the most empowered version of myself. During my travels, I had the opportunity to live in the home of a Reiki master, an experience and partnership that shifted my focus from using solely traditional psychotherapy to incorporating energy work.
Following my personal journey, I settled in Asheville with my daughter and two dogs. It’s been a blessing to be surrounded by the beauty of the mountains, to participate in the strong community in Asheville, and meet incredibly inspiring people. As a single mom with a toddler, I have become aware of the challenges in creating balance when life becomes very busy. I continue to use meditation and Reiki as a personal practice for staying grounded during times of transition. I enjoy spending time in nature and in the company of dear friends. I have found that laughter and gratitude are an important part of the healing process. I have discovered that life is a process and I have come to “Trust The Journey.”
I am passionate about assisting individual on their journey towards healing and believe that within each of us is an empowered version of ourselves. Each one of us is the author of our life, and we can fill the pages with anything and everything imaginable. My goal is to collaborate with my clients to create their ideal experience. Together we can work through the storms of life that cause emotional distress and create a world of possibility. We have all experienced grief, anxiety, anger, sadness, burnout, and a variety of emotions during different times in our lives. Our trials and hardships are what shape us and the story of our lives. Despite the challenges that life brings we have the ability to soar above our greatest hurdles. I am continually amazed and inspired by people, and it is a privilege and blessing to work with individuals on their journey.
