My life has lead me on my own journey of healing and self discovery as I have faced unanticipated storms. Following a devastating divorce, 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."
