I’m excited to help you on your journey of healing and self-discovery. At some point, we all realize that our lives haven’t turned out as we expected. We repeat the same patterns and get frustrated that they do not bring the results we want. But at the same time, we’re afraid to change – afraid to upset our lives and families, afraid to let people down, afraid of being judged, afraid of the unknown. It’s easier to just leave your life on autopilot. But what price are you paying? Are you just going through the motions of your own life? This has been my experience, too. With the support and a lot of effort, I gave up trying to be perfect and acknowledged that I, too, was full of pain and shame that needed to be healed. It was scary and freeing all at the same time. But I can assure you that it’s possible to find your true self and create relationships where you’re known and seen and accepted for who you really are.
