I help struggling souls see the light in themselves that has been hidden in the darkness.
My mission is to light the path for those souls who are still struggling, that they may find the beauty in a life of recovery.
I have walked the path of addiction. Here is a glance at my journey…
In 2020 I was in the midst of a relationship ending. A relationship that had been riddled with domestic abuse and addiction. I found myself facing the life of a single mom of 5 with two of those beautiful souls being under 1 year old. All of this as our world was entering into global pandemic.
I fell into a deep depression and although I had been sober a little over 8 years, the thought to drink, use or end my life was strong. I became so severely depressed that I lost 30 pounds in a month and had my oncologist (breast cancer survivor) worried that my cancer had returned.
Holding onto all that I had overcome...
I began to study Yoga (200 RYT) through the Kosha Yoga School, led by my friend Kendra Brouwer. I had done yoga for years and really enjoyed it but something about this training hit me on a deeper level than ever before. It hit me on a spiritual level.
I found what I had been missing all those years in sobriety, my spirituality.
Now I had a connection with my higher power whom I choose to call God, but there was something different that was happening.
During my yoga teacher training I was also introduced to the practice of Reiki. When those two powerful practices combined in my life, I knew exactly what I was meant to do. I finished my yoga teacher training and then became attuned in the art of Reiki.
The way that my spirituality was strengthened because of the combination of working my twelve step program, practicing yoga and using Reiki healing energy in my life was and still is indescribable.
I knew that I needed to share what I had found...
There are so many others who are still suffering in addiction. Some, who like me, had years of sobriety but had never found recovery. This is who I am here for. They are my "why" and what drives me to continue on this journey.
Today I am a grateful recovering alcoholic of 11 years (and counting!) Nine of those years I merely existed but today I can say... the last two years of my life I have been living.
Are you ready to start living a beautiful life in recovery?
I am here for you, to meet you where you are on your recovery journey, and eager to help you shine a light within that has been hidden in the darkness.
