The day the “switch” flipped…

On this particular morning I was putting my make up on for work, and my face was close to the magnifying mirror…In that mirror I saw my very round face, the wrinkles and the dark circles around my eyes, the acne that my skin endured, and the gray my hair was turning, but most of all the heart ache and sadness of the broken women that was staring back at me. I heard the voice in my head ask the question, “Where have you been?”… I looked at myself and said out loud, “To hell and now I am on my way back.” The next question was “Now, how do I get there?”

This day changed my life. I was approaching 400 pounds, I was emotionally and physically a painful wreck, and my life was in turmoil. The denial was over and I was finally fed up enough to want to make the adjustments in my life to find me. I realized that, ultimately, I was responsible for myself and that it was up to me to make myself happy. I was finally willing to change my life, no matter how hard it was, how long it took or how much it hurt. I wanted to learn to LIVE my life again. I was tired of simply existing and struggling through each day. That was the day I forgave myself for abandoning me, for allowing all the damage to be done and I started on my path to healing.

Now, years later it is my goal to help you. Since you are hear, reading this, I can safely assume that you are searching for answers to your healing. You may feel “stuck” or at least have the desire to find your personal path to a well balanced, joyful life. You may be looking for a way to discover, empower and embrace the “You”, you desire to be.

Through my experiences; my battle with obesity, the physical and emotional abuse I endured, the trauma in my life that created my Broken Belief System, I feel I can influence, inspire, motivate and quite possibly change your life.

My goal is to offer you the tools to identify limiting beliefs that sabotage your growth and replace them with constructive tools to implement and structure your life. I can help you identify your hidden strengths, passions and desires that you want for your life and together we can create a plan of actions that can point you in the right direction and help you to achieve the healthy, well balance and empowered person you will embrace.
