Thank you for showing up. It's no coincidence that you have found yourself here.
I encourage, invite, and support you while you seek inwardly, into the depths and wholeness of who you really are. You will discover how to find the balance of your Being.
By gaining a clearer understanding of your thoughts, emotions, beliefs, conditioning, energy, and patterns, you can start to understand how you operate, and how you react and respond to the world at hand.
I can help you see how you’ve arrived where you are, and why. This self-awareness will be your ally for the rest of your life.
I have had years of real-world training and have literally Mastered many areas in life that once eluded me. I am here to share them with you. You will be able to identify and unwind your own resistance patterns and behaviors that have been holding you hostage for years.
My guided Workshops, Virtual Guided Experiences, and Retreats are designed and structured around the incredible journey that I have been on – I share all that I have learned, the knowledge & insight that I have gained, and the wisdom & mastery I now hold and embody. You will have the tools to do this powerful work and transform your life.
My Self-Discovery (shadow-play, self-awareness) offerings can and will bring about change to your beliefs, thoughts, ideals, opinions and/or judgements - creating new possibilities for more joy, more peace, feeling hopeful and inspired. You will learn to understand and manage your behaviors.
Your life is a big blank canvas - how do you want this to look and feel – to experience? How beautiful can you imagine it to be - full of rich color, texture, imagination, and heart?
You will have a Superpower (have fun, give it a name!) that will support you for the rest of your life by bringing your shadow IN-TO the light.
You…are in alignment and have "called in" what it is that you are seeking, now let's explore all the possibilities together.
Why do I believe I can guide you?
While a big part of my work involves diving into the shadow, we also look further, into the beauty of who you are: your light, your strengths, your abilities, your gifts, your talents -having the awareness of both our shadow and our light makes us whole BEings and frees us from our self-imposed shackles. We are both shadow and light. This is why there is so much magic in knowing ourselves completely, both in our light and our darkness.
My background has given me over two decades of observing behaviors in Fortune 500 companies with thousands of employees in Human Resources for 21 years, managing and leading in upwards of nine direct reports, and 21 years in Alcoholics Anonymous, where I worked with hundreds of people.
I am inherently a dot-connector, a pattern seer, a behavioral tracker. I can see threads of energy where it needs to connect - these are some of my gifts. I have used these gifts to better understand human behavior - I am a researcher without researching, rather observing, and filing and storing the information.
I have a keen ability to assess patterns and behaviors effortlessly, therefore allowing us to get into the root of your shadow more quickly, so you can process and start to integrate.
I stumbled my way into Spiritual Self-Mastery, literally. To walk myself through some of the most challenging times of one’s life and being in the Dark Night of the Soul for almost five years was no joke. I had no spouse, no partner, no kids, no parents or siblings, no nieces or nephews for whom I could say “I want to go on living for them!” it was just me, having to decide to live for myself. And this was where I learned all about what self-love actually means.
Spiritual Self-Mastery simply means to heal one’s life in order to move towards one’s soul | spiritual purpose.
What does Self-Discovery mean?
Most of us think we know who we are, yet have never taken inventory of ourselves, by looking within, or even asking ourselves the question “who am I?” I don’t mean your labels - your job, your gender, your hobbies, being a parent, a child, your political stance, your religious affiliation etc. I am referring to who you are deep in the well of your BEing. No change can take place within you until you are aware of who you are today. We are here to focus on your Inner-World, where you have control of your emotions, behaviors, patterns, perspective and your responses and reactions to your outer-world.
Your outer world changes when your inner world does.
As your guide, I am here to help you see and view the world through a different lens – a lens that can support you in co-creating different energy and behaviors, resulting in a more joyful way to live.
I use a variety of tools and questions that are deeply thought-provoking, and help to identify patterns, behaviors, or conditioning of self. We put the shackles on ourselves, nobody did this to us and we equally have the power to remove them.
I create with intention, the opportunity for change. I am only as good of a sherpa, guide, mentor, or facilitator as your willingness to shift and change – it’s about results for me. If you aren’t successful, then neither am I; your willingness to open yourself up will determine your growth – it’s the key.
I encourage, invite, and inspire you to consciously wake up to your true-life purpose. We get you here by examining your life through a different filter. We dive deep into the waters of Self: self-worth, self-esteem, self-sabotage, and self-discovery, in order to See, Feel and Acknowledge your true self – the Spirit | Soul Self.
This could be the decision that creates alignment in your life!
You are the GIFT that you have been searching for!
I had a lot of unraveling to do on myself before I could even begin to heal. I had been so conditioned in-my-ways through my upbringing and the fellowship of AA (people’s beliefs/opinions), and what the Big Book and the Steps & Traditions stated – and I followed it religiously. I had no sense of self, I didn’t even know the language of those words let alone embody them.
Based on the emotional condition I was in at the time, it took me awhile to change, to finally get it, as I was so full of anger and being the victim - mostly at Institutions (IRS, Companies as a whole, Credit Bureaus, Medical system etc.).
After having another cathartic experience in 2017 I was finally able to “knowingly” surrender that first time, and subsequently several times since.
I am a processor of self all the time, and it’s the methodology in which I process, that has allowed for incredible insight and healing. Once I unraveled, I then began on embarking on knitting and weaving my life in a way that is full of love, joy, peace and compassion.
There is a nut for every screw - as they say – it’s about who you relate to, and who you resonate with based on where you are on your current path and your life’s circumstances.
With my full, personal attention I guide you in the process by supporting you to see your blocks, your shadow, and/or your lack of self-awareness. I will challenge you, from the heart, to push beyond your limitations, and see how your views of the world may not be serving you. I use a variation of tools and questions that are deeply thought provoking and help to identify patterns, behaviors, or conditioning of oneself, as we put the shackles on ourselves, nobody does this for us, and we equally have the power to remove them.
These un-seen or unaware parts of our personality are the hidden drivers of all the decisions we make, or don’t make - in life. The shadow is the foundation of who we’ve become and influences why we do what we do. When we are focused outside of ourselves (seeking to external factors) to find internal peace, validation, and self worth etc. we are left forever searching as the answers lie within.
Oftentimes these shadow aspects are often running the show because we can’t see what we don’t yet see, and we don’t know what we don’t yet know. We do everything possible to avoid examining and looking at these hidden parts of ourselves. Things you may do to avoid these parts of yourself, and are now energizing the self-sabotage.
My work is done through helping you shine a light on your own path, not a path that I want for you, or to follow the path I took. I guide you into a more sustainable way of living life; more joy, peace within, acceptance and surrender.
If you can relate to any part of my journey, my experiences, perhaps I am the right person for you to work with.
Please note: I am not a licensed therapist, trauma therapist, crisis counselor or other – if you are experiencing crisis or trauma, albeit recent or past, that are trauma based, please seek out the appropriate support needed, there are some links on my resource page.
If you are feeling suicidal, please call 911 or the suicide hotline – and know you are loved and you are supported.
We all experience low-self-esteem, low-self-worth, insecurities, lack of confidence, no self-respect etc. However, there is often a difference in how we got there. Gender Conditioning, as I like to call it, is where we experience different challenges and biases that come from peer pressure starting at puberty, then these behaviors morph into adulthood.
When men and women are grouped separately, they can equally be vulnerable and honest without feeling like their raw, truthful emotions are going to get squashed, misunderstood, de-valued, or eye-rolled by the opposite sex. Unwinding and unraveling this baggage is a potent process and having a same- sex container for the work supports the safety and intimacy for whatever may come through the healing process.
Separating genders also minimizes thoughts, ideas, behaviors that one may have about finding someone of the opposite sex to fix them, distract or divert them while at a “Self-Discovery” workshop / retreat. Not only is this a distraction to the individual’s work, but it also shifts the entire energy of the container and can throw off the energy of the group.
I have witnessed this behavior too many times to mention, whether in AA retreats, AA meetings, sweat lodges, medicine ceremonies, or weekly spiritual gatherings. It only takes one person’s energy to go off track for the entire container to be impacted.
While this work as a whole is geared toward self-discovery and not gender based, the open discussions that will come forth in a group setting will be directed towards the overall general issues / challenges that each gender faces. You will be held in a safe, loving, open container to support your ultimate healing.
