At 23 years old, I got married without having a clue what it takes to make a relationship last. When my ex-husband proposed, I thought, “we both want kids, and, even though we have different values, he’ll change for me after we get married, right?” Needless to say, I was VERY wrong!
Fast forward 2.5 years and a baby later, I managed to free myself from that toxic relationship.
After my divorce, I pursued personal growth work, and began the journey of my personal transformation! I studied Attachment Theory, did trauma therapy, Imago Therapy, discovered Authentic Relating, and through all of that (and more) I realized that I was completely disconnected from my desire for most of my life.
I made decisions based on social norms and stories, but mostly void of connection to my internal compass. My intuition was off line in many ways, which I learned later was because I didn’t have a connection with my body.
As a protective mechanism in my childhood, I learned to disconnect from my feelings to avoid feeling the pain of trauma in my childhood.
When I was able heal the trauma stored in my body, I was able to reconnect with myself, and my feelings.
I found my “yes” and my “no” for the first time in a very long time!
It was as though I was reborn.
Now, I don’t default to my friends, family and intimate partners’ desires. I take the time to ask myself what I really want, and have the tools to express myself clearly and confidently.
My journey led me to discover my purpose…helping others learn to access their desires!
The past 8 years I have worked as a professional Desire and Intimacy Coach and Counselor working with individuals and couples.
Today, I am committed to owning my own needs, desires, feelings and experiences, and I realize that my purpose in this life is to inspire and support others to do the same. My desire is my compass, and when I work with clients, I utilize a feeling of aliveness as a tool to coach people and empower them to make decisions that are aligned with their inner truth, which creates more revenue, confidence, pleasure, and empowerment in their personal and business lives.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time in my community with friends, dancing, soaking up the sunshine, hiking the beautiful mountains of Boulder, and traveling to the beach as often as possible.
My studies include: B.A. from Guilford College, Certified Health Coach from IIN, and a Certification in Authentic Leadership and Facilitation from the Integral Center.
