Can I interest you in taking a few breaths with me? It's what I do when I'm nervous and meet someone new (you!) :) Ready? Here we go...
On your next breath in, see if you can let your body grow quiet and still.
Breathe out, and Smile :)
Breathing in, notice any tension you're holding in your shoulders, legs, arms, or jaw. Breathe out, and allow those muscles to relax.
Breathing in, notice how you're feeling.
Breathe out, and Smile again :)

who am i?
Seems like I've been trying to answer this question my whole life. Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose?
Here's my current answer: I am a seeker, a questioner, a perpetual student, a self-improvement junkie, a divine feminine, a loving wife & mama of 2 little boys and 1 furbaby, a sister, a daughter, a healer, a teacher, a yogi, a peaceful warrior, a steward for Mother Earth, a friend of everyone, an explorer, and a creator.
To learn more about who I am & how I got here, read on over here.
One of the realizations I've had, after consuming pretty much every book, audible, or podcast about how to live a successful, happy and purposeful life, is that every technique, every prescription, every workout, starts with awareness. Awareness of who we are. Awareness of how we feel. Awareness of who we want to be. Awareness of how we engage with others. Awareness of how we engage with ourselves.
In order to foster awareness, I practice mindfulness. In order to foster compassion, gratitude, focus, emotional regulation, intentionality, and basically, just not be a stressed, angry, impatient or crazy person, I also practice mindfulness :)
So, that's where I like to begin - If you want to learn how to start and keep a daily mindfulness & meditation practice, so you can build the foundation of awareness necessary to do all the other "work", I'm your gal. You can find some of my mindful offerings here.
tuning into your Intuition
Another thing I've learned after habitually seeking answers outside of myself, is that all of the answers and wisdom I long to find are already WITHIN ME. Every (good :)) spiritual book ever written, self-improvement method or alternative healing technique ever created, in my opinion, is a product of that person's lived experience, and in some way was channeled through the author's intuition. After having that realization, I now wonder whether every answer I long to find "out there", is something that is simply waiting for me to unearth within myself, right here, in the present moment?
I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves, to free ourselves, to love ourselves; in order to do these things, all we need to do is look within, learn who we are and who we are meant to be (& capable of becoming), then keep listening for that internal guidance to show us the next step.
Let me introduce you to your best (and cheapest!) teacher... You :) Learn more by scheduling a sample Intuitive Coaching Call by emailing me at email@example.com.
intuitive healing & coaching
In Sept 2016, I updated my Facebook profile to read "intuitive healer". I had no idea what that meant, I just felt this instinct to write it.
In April 2017, I met a Mindfulness author and healer (Brenda Salgado, author of this book), who ignited a desire for me to finally uncover my own healing path. Within a few weeks, I had learned Reiki 1 & 2 and was practicing on everything and everyone I could; something had finally clicked.
Later the same year, I met an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) coach, who led me and 20 other women through 21 days of "Tapping through our Inner Glass Ceilings". After witnessing the power of tapping personally (I shattered a lifetime of limiting beliefs around what I was capable of :)), I also realized that tapping turned out to be this magical combination of all things mindful (acceptance, allowance, compassion, insight), energy healing (releasing emotions by tapping along energy meridians), and intuition.
Since practicing Reiki and EFT, I have come to discover that I am an empath - which, for me, means that I seem to be able to innately tap into what my clients are feeling - in person and over the phone. And I even have what I believe is clairvoyance, sometimes being able to feel, see or hear messages that are meant for clients I'm working with.
I put everything together now in what I call "intuitive coaching". My over-the-phone intuitive coaching sessions are for women (or men! but I tend to attract the ladies, particularly other moms :)) who want help finding your way when you're feeling lost, reconnecting with yourSelf, and learning tools that will enable you to slow down, breathe, and be more present & loving (with yourself, then others). I also love working with parents & kids together, on everything from sleep issues, to anxiety & stress. I utilize meditation & mindfulness, Reiki, EFT ("tapping"), and lots of intuitive guidance.
