A Complete Wreck
A few years ago, I was a complete wreck. I had reached my breaking point. For years, I struggled with severe depression, anxiety, panic attacks, multiple food sensitivities, adrenal fatigue and PTSD from two back-to-back traumatic births. All while trying to raise 4 kids under 6!! I reached complete and utter burnout and had difficulty even doing the basics.
After each of my first three births, I experienced postpartum depression and my health and emotional well-being got worse and worse.
I went to doctor after doctor (I lost count after 8), each one telling me my lab results showed I was ‘fine’ and that nothing was wrong with me. I *knew* this couldn’t be true. I could barely get out of bed each day and was experiencing panic attacks several times a week. The most they’d do is offer me a prescription for antidepressants.
As a nursing mom, that wasn’t acceptable to me (I’ve since changed my mind on this. If you need it to get your head above water and it’s your only option, then do what you gotta do). At the time though, I was so scared of the side effects on my babies, and so I’d spend hours at the computer searching natural cures and treatments for depression and anxiety and trying to find out what was ‘wrong’ with me.
Physically Better but Still Struggling Emotionally
I began seeing a naturopathic doctor and, bit by bit, my health started to improve, but it was really hard! I was taking over 50 supplements a day, and had a ton of food restrictions. I was grateful for feeling better, but something was missing. Feeling normal shouldn’t be this difficult!
In my search, I kept coming across a technique called EFT, also known as tapping. I dismissed it again and again ,but the depression and anxiety weren’t getting better fast enough.
Though I was very skeptical, I was also very desperate and so I looked up a practitioner in my city and went in to see her.
The Cloud Lifted
Within 90 minutes, what was a 10/10 soul-sucking depression, transformed into me feeling light and free and like I was walking on air! I was ecstatic! I hadn’t felt this good in years! To be honest, I couldn’t remember if I’d ever felt that good.
I had no idea how it worked or why, but I knew that I’d found my calling. I just knew it! From that point on, it became my mission to help bring these techniques into the world and to help other women heal from the pain and sorrow they face on a daily basis.
“If someone can be traumatized in 30 seconds
why can’t they be healed in a day, an hour, a minute?”

Everyone Has An Addiction. What’s Yours?
After years of doing this work, I went back to school to study substance abuse counseling. From my studies and years of client work, it became very obvious that we are more alike than we are different. And that those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol are no different than the rest of us who are doing our best to cope with life’s challenges. Instead, you might turn to food, or facebook, or shopping, gambling and even love…any distraction to keep you from dealing with the real issues. This is why I created a free report for you, entitled, ‘How to Break Free from Negative Thoughts & Behavior.’
In this report, you’ll find information on trauma, stress, coping and what you can do about it. You can read all about it by signing up below.
Just know that this is no coincidence. You are here because you know there is more to life than what you are currently facing each day. And I want to help you move from where you are to where you want to be.
I look forward to connecting with you and supporting you in any way I can.
Peace and Blessings,
