As a survivor of childhood wounds, I don't just talk the talk. I've walked the walk. I know the power of resilience, the capacity to heal life’s challenges, and reclaim our true selves. Nothing is more important. In fact, I’ve made it my life’s work to usher others along their healing journeys, connecting them to their true selves and others. In fact, research supports a sense of connection to oneself and others is at the very heart of creating a happy, fulfilling, and successful life. Isolation carries more risk for illness and premature death than smoking. Connection is a promise of my work – healing past hurts to connect with your authentic self and others. Once this occurs, things can get better. We can be our best selves and achieve our goals.
