My journey to the counseling profession has not been a linear one. After graduating with a Bachelors in Community Health, I realized my deep passion for holistic wellness. During this time, I found my path through a spiritual experience. Since then I have found untraditional ways to deepen into my awakening.
Some of these paths have been incredibly healing, guiding me to an authentic expression, letting go of trauma, and opening my heart in ways I never thought imaginable.
Some of the experiences have been difficult, and confusing, and caused more harm than good. But each experience has been transformational and led me to know my work is to be the story keeper of people, hold brave space, and lead with my authentic heart.
After years of studying healing through somatic (aka body based) modalities, I stepped into shamanic arts which reconnected me to ritual and ceremony. I began to go deeper into my own truth and knowing.
I began to create art as a way to understand who I truly am and express the emotions that I struggle to bring through my voice. I use my body to intuitively move and give permission for others to do the same. My interests in somatic therapy, sexuality, and trauma all come together through the certificate programs and the faculty that allow space for transformation in all different forms.
I was not raised in a culture where emotions were talked about. Therapy was a bad word. In my culture, the elders considered it their job to guide the younger ones so going to a stranger for help was out of the question. These are my roots. These are the beliefs I was raised with but through my own curiosity of how to live a life without pain, I found myself in a therapist’s office. It was a secret I did not share. I was ashamed yet I felt free after each session. My darkest secrets were finally finding light. It transformed me.
I realized I was a chain breaker, a lineage healer, and I hold that title to this day. I’m proud that I have found my way to myself after never thinking it was possible. My path has twisted and turned but I know I’m exactly where I need to be.
With a deep bow...
