“"Gently, allow your heart to hand you every last piece of who you truly are.
This is the food you’ve been hungry for.
This is the water that will quench.”

About me:

I grew up in a family with complex-ptsd.  I had social anxiety,  chronic fight/flight/freeze/fawn responses, and bouts of depression.   I was later diagnosed with ADHD and put on medication, but later found out that what I actually had was trauma and severe performance anxiety.  It was a painful and lonely road of confusion not really understanding what was going on with me.

I found myself at 23yrs old with broken relationships, having barely graduated college, and difficulty holding down jobs.  I reached a point where I knew there had to be more to life...and me and knew I was o likely on a road to nowhere fast if I didn't do something about it.  The people around me were clueless and often I was judged and invalidated for my feelings and reactions especially by my family...and myself.

In 2002, I took my first course about the Self and what it was to be human. I cried...a lot.   It was the first time I felt understanding, compassion, and healing in my life.  I saw how my earlier experiences had deeply pained and impacted me to feel unsafe in my own body.

Then, I learned about trauma...and that's when the even more radical transformations began...
I started doing deep trauma work.,,working on my body and subconscious...easing my nervous system and restoring safety and resilience.  Not all healing is created equal and I finally found the "thing" that was the key to unlocking me from my internal cage.  I can say that I'm dramatically a different person than I was back in a phrase..."I'm free."
