I BECAME A
TRANSFORMATIONAL EMPOWERMENT COACH & MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER
because I want to inspire others to face their gremlins and experience healing so they can live their BEST lives. I found the path to healing from sexual & emotional abuse and built a life based on self-love, self-compassion, and positive body image.
I used to play small and tried to be invisible so I could feel safe. I used to feel like I didn’t deserve to be seen or heard and I was just supposed to accept what I had and not expect more. I used to wonder why I had so little value in the eyes of the people who should have protected me as a child. I felt expendable and vulnerable all of the time. I used to wish I could just become invisible and fade into the background.
I used food as a coping device to feed my limiting beliefs about abuse. I believed if I was overweight I’d be less desirable and my abusers would lose interest. My weight would roller coaster up and down based on how safe I felt. I was plagued with low confidence and a poor body image. The little gremlins chattering in my ear had a great time holding my attention and convincing me that I would never be free from my feelings of inadequacy.
Transformation begins with awareness. I was at a point where my body just quit working properly. I spent a season battling bronchitis, laryngitis, and vertigo. The downtime gave me time to reflect and I started to connect the dots. My weight issues were connected to each inappropriate sexual encounter.
Once I pinpointed the root of cause my negative self-talk and self-sabotaging behavior, I was able to make different choices and begin my journey of healing. I learned that shame can’t live in the presence of compassion and that self-compassion was a powerful key to healing.
IT TOOK ME YEARS TO BUILD THE COURAGE TO SPEAK OUT AND TELL MY TRUTH AND RECLAIM MY PERSONAL POWER. But once I did, I discovered my true passion and purpose…
- TO BE A VOICE FOR THOSE WHO HAD NOT YET FOUND THE COURAGE TO USE THEIR OWN.
- TO INITIATE OPEN HONEST CONVERSATIONS ABOUT SEXUAL EMPOWERMENT AND HEALING.
- TO INSPIRE 1 MILLION MEN AND WOMEN TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES AND FEEL EMPOWERED FROM THE BOARDROOM TO THE BEDROOM!
