Who Am I?
I am an Intuitive Life Coach, and I specialize in TEENtuition. I am also many other things, which brings us to your likely next question: “Who is this person, and what is her story? Why would she be able to help me?”
So, I will do my best to summarize 46 years into a few paragraphs, as I do consider myself a writer, among other things. In fact, some of my earliest memories include writing a book, complete with a stapled spine and full crayon illustrations. It was kept under my pillow, and it was about a trip to the circus. The girl in the story had a life filled with adventure, and the freedom to be who she really wanted to be. Conversely, my childhood was layered with rules, responsibilties, and obligations, and I rarely felt that I was encouraged or allowed to really be “myself.”
From the time I was very young, I knew I was different. My three older brothers barely tolerated me, but I seemed destined to tag along on all their adventures, as my mother was fully occupied with housewife duties, and my father, of course, worked all day. We were a very typical 1960′s-70′s family, in suburban America. We went to church twice a week, as we lived in the Bible belt. I was determined to try to please my parents, and everyone else I came into contact with, but many of the situations I encountered did not seem to fit with what I was told, versus what experienced. My restlessness grew.
As I grew toward the woman that I would become, I strayed far off the path that my parents had laid out for me. I know I caused them a lot of pain and sleepless nights. I discovered that I needed to find my own answers, and this was frowned upon greatly in the religious environment in which I was raised. Eventually, I moved out to California, where I hoped to find a less rigid system that would support my “wild ideas.” At first, I just continued my reckless path of “doing whatever I wanted,” but I soon realized that my rebellion was not who I really wanted to be. I got married, had a couple of kids, and then, one day, I realized how unhappy I was, despite having followed the life plan that I had set for myself. I began to search for meaning, and my “life purpose.”
After my divorce, I slowly began to rebuild my life, this time, on my own terms, without anyone to blame, and no safety net. At the same time, I was raising two sons, and juggling the challenges of single parenthood. I faltered on my path many times, but my quest for happiness and fulfillment remained my primary focus. As the years progressed, I discovered meditation and intuitive learning. This was to be what ultimately led me to find my truth, that elusive thing I had been searching for, as long as I can remember.
I have been blessed to meet many who are on the same, or similar paths as myself. I have benefited from countless teachers, mentors, and inspirational personalities. One thing that all these people have in common is that they do not judge me for where I am, but encourage me to find my own path of truth. This is what I want to share with the rest of the world, as I believe that most of us have strayed from our paths of truth because we have, at one point in our lives, felt judged, stifled, or otherwise invalidated, simply for expressing ourselves and our heart’s desires. Many of the kindest, gentlest people, are also the most angry and hurt individuals, who have shut down, because of the lack of understanding and support they receive. I know this, because I was once one of those people. Having the right support to foster my spiritual growth, allowed me to become the woman that I am today. I am in no way done with my growth, but I can say that most days I am happy, fulfilled, and confident that I am on the right path to fulfill my life’s purpose.
My heart’s desire is to help those who have strayed just a little off their path of truth, and are searching for answers within themselves. I am not a “guru,” “psychic,” or any of those other words associated with giving you the answers. I am like your own personal spiritual assistant, ready to show you your OWN answers, as soon as you are ready to see them. Send me an email when you are ready to get started!
