💜I was born and raised in Philadelphia, seven years ago I moved from my hometown across the river to the suburbs of New Jersey. Five years ago I suffered through a devastating mental breakdown when I lost everything that I thought was supposed to make me happy in life- a relationship, the possibility of being a mother, a house, a job, a yoga teacher training, a car. By the end of 2017 I was raw and had nearly given up all hope. I wept almost nightly, calling out to the Universe to make the pain go away. The loss of all of those “things” tested my resilience and my belief in something much larger than myself behind it all, orchestrating these experiences for my greatest good. Ultimately the trial by fire led to deeper wisdom, greater awareness and the evolution of my soul.
✨️I didn’t know it at the time, nor would I have wished my deepest depression upon anyone, that the breakdown was ultimately the door to my break-through. The pain I experienced five years ago was the churning of my developmental trauma coming up to be cleansed and healed. I had to go through my shattering as an adult to heal the wounding of my childhood. Without the intensity, like being emotionally electrocuted, I wouldn’t be who I am today. I now understand why it all had to be this way, why it all played out the way that it did. I have laid in the darkness, I have wept in its lonesomeness, I have been with my heart broken to bits and I survived to tell the tale. I now know that: it is through the darkness that I found my light, through processing my grief that I discovered my wholeness, and through feeling it all that broke open my heart to be more expansive than the sky. It is because of all of this that I was led straight into the arms of love, embraced by The Source that created it all.
💜It is because of all of this that I do specific healing work here on Earth: I currently serve children and families, supporting creating emotionally and mentally healthy environments for children in the foundational years AND I work with adults in using the ancient teaching and practices of Yoga to support overall wellness through a lighthearted, playful and trauma informed approach. With adults I organically support healing of inner child wounds through my teaching style. I specialize in stress relief and teaching Self-love.
✨️I didn’t heal all on my own, I had many teachers, therapists, friends and guides along the way. However, I was an active participant in the process.
