I am a REAL person, just like you. I can help you develop personalized ways to infuse your life with REALly amazing stuff!
I have been the counselor, and I have been the client. I have led a relatively charmed life, but I also have encountered my own struggles with anxiety and am no stranger to the perceived challenges that come with living in the “real world,” as defined by society. I am a daughter and only child, a wife of 21 years, a mother of two teenage girls, and a friend to many. I am a trail runner, a yoga student, a boater, and a wanna-be beach bum. I am a Chardonnay drinker and an avid kitchen dancer. I strive to live simply, I speak my mind with ease, and I go about my moments and days in an out-loud, honest, and unapologetic way. I am far from perfect, by secular standards; but I have found ways to see the perfection in life’s imperfections (and in my own). I take pride in affirming that I have gotten REAL good at laughing through the perceived “tougher” times, and at myself. I am learning more each day about how to REALly relax and enjoy life NOW, in this moment.
My experience has shown me that our Universe is fun, generous, and desperate to get us to our happy place ASAP!
When I was in my early 30’s and struggling to be all things to all people (“like a good girl should!”) the Universe gave me a gentle shove, which reminded me of this amazing fact: I have the power to create my experiences and manifest my REALity. I had the power to end my struggle.
At that time in my life, my drive to achieve society’s 21st century brand of cross-role “perfection” was not making me happy. I was tired, riddled with anxiety, and felt ridiculous and inadequate for feeling anything but perfectly content and capable. The way the world had taught me to live life was not allowing me to fully engage in and enjoy it, and I wanted to know 2 things: Why I couldn’t, and how I could.
My search for answers led me to places I never dreamed I would find myself, including a bible study group and a psychotherapist’s office. I found clues, but still felt frustrated. Aware of my plight and hearing my internal pleas for help, the Universe inspired a good friend to recommend reading Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret. That’s when all hell broke loose. Rather, that’s when all Heaven began to break loose.
Learning about the Law of Attraction was merely the jumping off point for an extensive exploration into the Divine Energy and Power that I now understand we each possess. What has followed the decision to devour that first great read in less than 48 hours has been a series of serendipitous events and interactions that have all been organically leading me back to my true SELF, the place where the keys to unlocking REAL happiness are sitting right there on the table (and have been the entire time).
I am a resource for you. I know that you can experience REAL happiness now, under any circumstances. I am thrilled to share my take on how!
With a BA in Mass Communications/Journalism and a MS in Applied Psychology, I come to our conversation with a cool blend of academic, professional, and life experiences that have continually inspired me to investigate, experiment with, and report on ways to cultivate wellness, in every sense of the word. My findings have consistently supported the concept that we each have the Divine power to create our own REALity, to REALly be well, and to craft REAL happiness by discovering how to harness and channel the energy that fuels that power.
I am honored to be a part of your journey back to REAL living.
