A Little More About Me…
I have always had a passion for helping and guiding others. I knew deep down that I was always meant to devote myself to serving others; helping others to heal, reach their goals, become their authentic selves.
One of the reasons I am accomplished in my endeavours, is because I too have had to go through extreme tests of the soul and dark times. I have had times in my life where I thought I wasn’t going to make it through, or I’d never be able to overcome the obstacles that were in front of me. I struggled with issues of self worth, career, health and relationships. There were times when daily life felt like a struggle.
When a situation is deemed suitable, I am always very open with my clients about the things I have had to face in my life, and the fact that no one is truly alone. Many people I have worked with have found it extremely comforting to know that I have in fact been through many of the things they are going through; and when I say I understand – it’s because I truly do. I also know what it feels like and how life changes when these struggles are overcome. It takes tenacity, motivation, drive, and intention to want to change. You have to want it! You have to know why you want it. And you have to know what you’re willing to do to get it.
When I felt that I was at my lowest point, I remember thinking there had to be something I could do to turn things around. I woke up one morning and decided I did not want to feel that way anymore. I was ready to change. I was tenacious. I worked at it and I moved with intention. I found guidance and inspiration. And I changed. What happened after that was completely overwhelming in the best way. I began to look at life with gratitude and awe, I viewed the outside world differently, the things I struggled for so long with felt like distant memories; sometimes they didn’t even feel like they had happened to me. All this happened because I made a conscious decision to change my mind – and my life.
There is a quote by Japanese author Haruki Murakami that reads:
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
This is one of the most beautiful, meaningful and accurate quotes I have ever read, and I refer to it often. Once we decide to really face what is binding us, we change. We change for the better. We overcome obstacles and we become someone we are proud to be. That is my goal, to help you be that person. If you are not happy with where you are - change. If there are obstacles - overcome them. If it’s not easy – prevail in spite of adversity. If you want and/or need guidance along the way – reach out and get it. We as human beings, are all connected. We are all in this world together and if you need help, it is there for you. Find your inner strength and ask for it.
