I became a mom for the first time at the age of twenty-five 🖤 A difficult birth 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), separated from us and hooked up to a million machines.
I couldn’t tell you much about those first few weeks of motherhood –– except that family, faith, and adrenaline got me through.
And I never quite recovered.
I was never encouraged to talk about my emotions as a young woman, a young mom, a military spouse. I’ve walked around for a long time as a wounded warrior, carrying hurt and fear and the weight of the world on my shoulders. Anxiety and fear rolled like tumbleweeds through my body for almost a decade before I finally brought them to the surface so I could release them and heal.

By way of this healing process, which has spanned almost an entire decade, I’ve discovered a fresh and unique approach to balancing my inner energy –– one that blends a lifetime’s worth of experience in both art and music, yoga, meditation, essential oils, nutritional supplements, time spent connecting with the earth, and limited use of electronics to name a few.
This holistic approach to well-being allows nature, creativity, and sound to be used as tools to cultivate deep relaxation, heal from past hurts, release resentment, let go of limiting beliefs and inspire meaningful connections with loved ones.
I am so inspired to be able to share this beautiful and encouraging approach to
