Finding my passion for coaching and helping others came from my own personal search for growth and power within myself. My past is one similar to many, feeling lost, alone, unable to find love and generally unsure of the future ahead.
I spent so much time wanting connection and acceptance, looking for it in external forces
I started using drugs and alcohol as a way to cope with feelings of inadequacy. Moving from city to city, jumping from one relationship to the next, never feeling completely satisfied with my life. I was in a fog, lost, but always hopeful that there was something better out there waiting for me.
During a Breathwork session, held on a retreat in Nicaragua, my late grandmother came to me. She was always a constant support in my life, someone who pushed me to do the unthinkable and believe in myself. The energy I felt that day was beautiful, and as I lay there allowing the tears to flow, I felt so much of my built-up frustration and pain dissipate.
Returning from that trip, back to New York, I made the decision to focus on finding happiness. I switched careers from hairstylist to fitness instructor, I have always loved working with people and the feeling I felt after a class was exhilarating so I knew I wanted more of that!! I turned my compass towards cultivating SELF LOVE - "doing the work" as they say with daily affirmations, journaling, and mirror work. I sought advice from psychics, leaned into my tarot cards, read all the self help books I could get my hands on, went to workshops, I began meditating regularly, and found myself in a few more Breathwork sessions where I was able to cut through emotional chords I wasn't consciously aware needed cutting.
There was so much positive change happening in my inner world I noticed pretty quickly that my outer world and overall outlook on life started to reflect those positive changes as well. I started using these teachings in my classes, utilizing that room as a way to connect with others and share my journey of self discovery.
And it was then that I realized my passion for helping others find the love, acceptance, and strength laying within themselves.
I have peeled away layers upon layers of ancestral trauma. I have worked through grief, shame, and feelings of unworthiness. I believe that I am here to share my journey with you, in real time, as I go along this path of self discovery in hopes that you find the same power within yourself.
Life can be exactly what you want it to be, free from pain or heartache, and you absolutely deserve to live a life filled with joy, love, and abundance. The inner work opens space for all of it.
