I have spent years becoming comfortable with becoming me.
I am who I am today because of my beautiful path of life. I was born and raised in Washington state, as the youngest of four sisters. We lost our dad when I was 10 years old which was the first time I shifted from a child to becoming a caretaker of my family. My husband and I met when we were 15 and in high school, and our journey together has brought us through the struggles of alcoholism and drug addiction, and eventually into recovery. These years allowed me to learn to deeply love myself, and to accept where others are on their own path regardless of my own personal expectations. Throughout these years, I also learned about the healing power of nature, and to this day I continue to spend time in the woods and by the rivers to bring my body, mind and Spirit back into balance.
I spent years with the mantra “I am becoming comfortable becoming me¨, while I built myself back up. This mantra also helped me as I stepped into who I really am and not what society, religion or my family wanted me to be. This Mantra guided me from angry, wounded, silent, burnt out, and resentful to blooming into who my soul was called here to be. I am a loving, open, loud, responsible, joyful, fun woman that loves the earth and all the humans that have been blessed to call earth home.

I have been a massage therapist/bodyworker since 1999. I have learned so much about the body and the emotions that we bury deep into the tissue. The issue in our tissues rang true for me as I began to hold an energetic space for people in physical pain. I went in depth with them, creating a space for my clients to receive body work and express what was going on in their life. Soon my clients and I began to recognize that the pain in their shoulders, hips, feet were related to memories, moments and trauma that they had never been supported through. This led me into seeking out a life coaching approach with my clients. The more time I have spent with my clients the more I began to realize that so much of our emotional work was related to a deep need to find trust in self and to love and accept ourselves right where we are.
We are not broken or ruined, we create stories that separate us from others and in this separation we can feel off, hurt, angry, resentful, frustrated and fatigue will begin to show up. When we are always self doubting ourselves our bodies can’t heal. This has to stop! We want to belong and we want connection and we must start to creating harmony in our lives. I believe the first step to this is falling in love with ourselves and dropping the illusion of perfection/not good enough. Realizing that everything from our thoughts and feelings to our actions and reactions have a positive purpose. Through this new way of thinking and exploring self we will begin to heal our bodys and our minds. You can begin to live a life from a calm sense of being and have the ability to access joy more frequently. You will find that you love your life and that you deserve joy and happiness and can have it!
Guess what?? I would love to walk this journey with you. It is possible and you can do it!
