I Believe:

  • Suffering is an option
  • That what we resists persists.
  • That when we numb ourselves from painful thoughts we numb ourselves from joy also.
  • That you have a right to live Your life.
  • That you can "love what is" the perfect and the not so perfect.
  • That your "Best Self" is waiting for you to claim it.
  • That opening to "Grace" is the way to be in this life.

"This being human is a guest house.  Every morning a new arrival.  A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably.  He may be clearing you out for some new delight.  The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond."  - Rumi​


I am so glad you are here.

This is a little about me and why I love what I do!

I was searching.  My life was happening, my life was spinning out of control.

Is life meant to be so hard?  Where did the joy go?  Where did my relationship go wrong?  What about my relationship with me?

I felt like I could not raise my kids with a loving heart.  I was too stressed out. I started eating way too much, crying too much, and hiding away from the world.

I felt so much SHAME!

I was feeling vulnerable but not able to share my vulnerability.  I was afraid of what will they think or say.

Divorce, money issues, health, and growing older was pushing all my buttons.

Courage came knocking and I was just too tired of hiding. 

I had to find a different way to be in this world.

So I left my marriage of many years to start again. I have been doing the work, loving my life (even with the struggles), and opening to grace ever since.
