I grew up in a neighborhood well-acquainted with violence and a family considerably impacted by divorce, multi-generational trauma, substance abuse, and interpersonal discord. The effects of these experiences were challenging for many years, but through the therapeutic process, I was able to reclaim my strength, build resiliency, create fulfilling relationships, and live with a heart that was open instead of fearfully protected.
This journey began with investing my time and resources in workshops, retreats, and therapy in order to heal myself, rewire my reactivity, re-inventing my relationships, and comfortably standing in the ways I am uniquely different.
This process was not easy or linear (and is always ongoing!), but it eventually evolved into me committing my life to the study and application of personal growth, transformation, conflict resolution, therapy, communication and body-based mindfulness practices.
