and this is my story.
I was once a twenty year old struggling, single Mom feeling overwhelmed. Every day felt like struggle and anguish. It was my ambitious kid that made me want to dig deep and be better, for him and for me. 👩👦
Having overcome brutal teenage years I was in search of personal growth tools to invent who I wanted to be. That glimmer of hope gave me the courage to reach for more and expand my thinking. 💪🏼
I discovered what seemed like a magical tool called Hypnosis and my life changed forever.
In order to grow more confident, I had to face and work through the pain of childhood bullying, social anxieties, family-life disruptions, a secret sexual assault I had never told a soul about and disordered eating that seemed to play in the background every day.
Throughout Hypnotherapy training at the San Diego Institute of Hypnosis and every day since I have healed inner wounds and learned to adopt new habits and beliefs. The actions I've dared myself to take have furthered my progress exponentially in business and life.
Hypnosis and my eagerness to transform changed my life.
I've been on a relentless quest to grow and in that journey I've achieved a true inner peace along with a substantial list of achievements that have had a ripple effect in the world.
I am one of a small handful of women globally that has succeeded as a Hypnotist (shout out to my ladies) in all three major areas of the Hypnosis profession.
And that kid? He grew up to be a successful Paramedic Firefighter (soon to be Captain) and recently married his Emergency Room Nurse. Yeah! We consider him our family hero.
I no longer have something to prove. Now my ♥️ hearts on 🔥 fire 🔥to help others succeed and discover their own courage. It requires tapping into the Subconscious Mind and accessing deeper parts of yourself.
