I became a mom for the first time at the age of twenty-five.
A difficult delivery preceded an even more difficult after-birth, with our son spending the first few weeks of his life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
I couldn’t tell you much about those first few weeks of motherhood –– except that faith, family, and adrenaline got me through.
And I never quite recovered.
I was never encouraged to talk about my emotions or experiences as a young woman, a young mom, or a military spouse. I walked around for a long time as a wounded warrior, carrying hurt and fear and the weight of the world on my shoulders.
Where’s my husband’s submarine and is he safe?
Will I be able to protect my family?
Am I a good mom/ wife/ daughter/ friend?
Are my children happy?
Is my husband happy?
Am I doing enough in life/ business/ motherhood?
Eventually, this stuff will eat you alive. It’ll start to manifest as deteriorating relationships, declining health, crippled finances, lack of motivation, a dulled sense of purpose… all of which I’ve experienced.
Anxiety, worry, and fear rolled around like a tumbleweed in my body for almost a decade before I finally brought it all to the surface so I could release and heal.
My journey to self-love and acceptance has spanned almost an entire decade, and is something that I work at every single day.
Blending a lifetime’s worth of experience in both art and music, yoga, meditation, essential oils, nutritional supplements, time spent connecting with the earth, journaling, intuitive painting, and a limited use of electronics –– I now help other women create balance, heal past hurts, and find peace.
I’ve also recently begun to offer Self-Love + Empowerment Retreats for entreprenuerial women and mothers. This venture has been incredibly exciting and beneficial to those who are struggling to find the balance between life, love and career.
And finally, online courses in technology addiction and social media cleansing are some of my favorite ways to nurture clients from afar! My clients span across 12 time zones and include parents and non-parents alike, young and seasoned professionals, online and brick-and-mortar businssness owners, entreprenuers, and military families to name a few.
I’m excited you’re here!
