In 2002, I trained as a nursing attendant and began to connect and be an integral part of thousands of patients’ western medicine journeys. Here it was mostly a physical focus. We touched on some mental health but 20 years ago, it wasn’t talked about like it is now. We NEVER touched on spiritual health unless someone was dying, and social health? Go see a social worker-cue every parent imagining their kids being ripped from their homes.
In 2009, I graduated as a Holistic Health Practitioner from McEwan University. Holistic Health Practitioners, while frustrated that they were being discounted, support western medicine and what was being done well. My two worlds had finally collided! Everything in my being knew there was a place for both to work together. Family doctors that I worked with sent patients and their loved ones to me when they had exhausted all other options. Patients were experiencing relief, but something wasn’t quite right for me to make a life for my two young kids, 10 and 7 years old, as a single mom. I am sure that at some point you have all understood how that feels.
My kids were my world. In university, I’d get up at 3 or 4 in the morning to do my homework so I could spend time with them during the day. I was feeling like a horrible mom taking 5 classes and working almost full-time. This part of my reinvention was difficult but, nope AND, so powerful. I learned how strong and resilient I am.
MY HEALING JOURNEY IS ALLOWING ME TO HELP WITH YOURS
In hindsight, I had a great deal of healing, learning, and growth to do before I was ready to help others heal as a Holistic Health Practitioner. Sam, who helps me learn about blogging (another one of my reinventions), asked me to add something in here about what I’ve done to be ready and how I knew I needed to heal. I had a lot of trauma to work through. I experienced domestic violence and needed to come to terms with things in my childhood and how I saw myself as a mother and as a human. I may talk about it in the future. I don’t know if I am ready to expose those skeletons. Right now, we live in peace together.
All I can think of when asked what I have done is a 25,000-piece puzzle (now 25,681 pieces) of healing I have been working on for my entire life. I have done acupuncture, reiki, singing bowls, massages, therapy-LOTS of therapy, meditation, seen my family doctor, been on medication, chiropractic care, travel, camp, went to retreats, sat with my feet in freezing cold streams because I heard the water was good for releasing (it is, but it doesn’t need to be painful), went on floats, done puzzles, gotten a dog, you name it, I’ve tried it. Each experience revealed a new, healthier, brighter puzzle piece to put together everything I needed to be ready to work with you.
Here I am, as ready as I’ll ever be, taking another leap of faith and finally ready to share myself with the world and now in 2023, joining a clinic with multiple health professionals-Embrace Wellness.
I will continue to grow, learn, and heal, just as I support you to do the same.
We are always changing, growing, learning, and reinventing ourselves with new experiences, new skills, new people, new risks, new rewards, new dreams, new challenges, new successes, new heartache, new love, new aloneness, new criticism, new acceptance.
It’s part of the human experience.
I bring you my knowledge and experience from both western medicine and alternative health in every session that we complete together.
I use intuition, Akashic Records, Reiki, and our connection to guide you through an insightful, exploratory, personalized healing journey curated, in the moment, just for you.
I am constantly reinventing myself and my life. Now I am finally helping others to reinvent themselves in a way that they didn’t think was possible!
No more questioning your worth.
Now is the time to take control of your healing, your life, and your vision.
Let me guide you during your healing session and begin the journey to revitalized love for yourself and your life.
By the time you read this, I will have REINVENTED myself again so stay tuned,
