1. In less than a minute, tell us who you are and why we keep hearing good things about you?
I am a colorful, outside-the-box mental-health therapist who incorporates energy work and intuitive healing practices into the services I offer.
2. What were the pivotal roadblocks and challenges you encountered along the way that helped you define your path?
My fear and rigidity kept me from launching my business and services at an earlier time in my life. Being afraid of “showing myself” and being “different” was something that kept me in “hiding” for many years. Yet, that same fear also allowed me to gain experience working with different agencies and different populations that assisted me in defining my truth, my vision, and the way I did want to show up. My mother’s death was also a huge turning point for me, as it allowed me to redefine my perspective on loss and life.
3. Why did you choose this field? Who were your role models? And what pushed you to learn and become who you are?
Initially, I chose mental-health services since I wanted to help others. My goal was very general. Yet, as time evolved, I shifted and began to support others in feeling empowered about themselves as they explored and redefined their story. I began inviting them to consider different choices they were afraid of before. We are fed/conditioned with so much junk that my goal became to assist those I work with to clear that junk and self-critic.
Role models for me—different family members, Freud, Madonna, Teal Swan, Louise Hay, Shera, the Care Bears . . . I could go on. In addition, different local/nonlocal community light workers who inspire me to do my work and my clearings so I can assist myself in order to support others in their path.
4. What is your legacy? Do you care about leaving a legacy?
Legacy sounds so formal. For me, it’s just about supporting others’ growth, connection to themselves, compassion toward self and others to heighten the beauty and creative power within.
5. What can we all do right now to make this world a better place?
Focus on understanding you, your past/story, and its link to your present so that you can show up awake, conscious, and shift. With committing to self-growth, love, compassion, and yourself, the world automatically becomes a better place.
6. In less than a minute, without sounding like a used car salesperson, tell us where to find you and what is the next big thing that everyone should be anticipating from you?
You can find me on Psychology Today, IG (@evolve_in) or through my website, www.morethantherapylmhc.com.
This year I’m completing a year-long certification on Energy Healing, so new services will be offered soon!
