I always wanted to make a difference.
From the time I was eight picking up litter in my neighborhood to when I was sitting in women’s studies class at age 19 realizing how disempowered women still are in society. I did a lot of seeking to where I could make a valuable difference. I went to art school in Chicago, where I thought I would fit in best, but, I still didn’t feel fully expressed. Even in one of the most prestigious art schools in the world life felt off. To make things worse, I became broke from chasing the idea that my art would resolve the void in my heart. So at age 27, I moved back to Kansas City and started to study and work in health for 10 years. I grew frustrated from dumbing myself down and taking orders while never making the change I wanted to make. I felt stuck and desperate. Nothing ever felt like the right fit to fulfill my deep passions.
When I had my baby (three months early!) I had to let my search go momentarily. I could only take care of my baby and myself. In all the tumultuousness of life what remained no matter what was my deep spiritual practice. My practice shifted in this time from becoming a way I could better myself to a way I could fully feel myself and my power. I realized that this very practice that had been there so long was the best outlet for my passion because it is really all I had ever cared about steadily and that had made me an expert though I never saw that until this moment. I finally had the clarity I had sought and it was there with me the whole time. It wasn’t outside of me, but inside of me and I knew I could take people on this journey.
Everyday, I get to guide someone to their own healing and their own power and I help them build their own dream visions. This work I do in the microcosm with my amazing clients changes the macrocosm in powerful ways because people invested in themselves heal the world. I am so happy to be part of the cyclical ever-flowing nature of healing. As I deepen my practice of yoga, tarot, self-development, and energy work it pours into my practice with my clients. My personal investment pours into my client’s transformations tenfold.
