I believe that empaths and wounded healers are here to help heal the collective heart through embodying the power of their gifts, no longer spending precious energy in protection mode or feeling victim to their sensitivity or the emotions of others.
We are the bridge builders toward a new paradigm of soul consciousness, emotional intelligence and peace.
I believe that empaths and wounded healers are the sacred alchemists of our future.
The journey of an empath and the wounded healer archetype IS a spiritual path for awakening into beauty, wholeness and freedom.
We have been taught an outdated mode of consciousness that relies so heavily on the mind and ego that is not natural to those of us who feel so very deeply. This leaves many of us not understanding our abilities, feeling crazy and alone, misunderstood and confused without any guidance or training of how to harness or use these gifts for the good.
I spent a lot of time in my life hating how sensitive I was, doubting my knowing, intuition and abilities and often feeling overwhelmed by information and energy. I felt alone and worked hard to dampen down these internal experiences and ignoring my inner senses, often to the expense of my own well-being.
I earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology and immersed myself in spiritual studies and practices like Buddhism, yoga and shamanism for 15 years. I started out on the well-worn path toward becoming a clinical psychologist, but something never felt right....I consistently felt drained and overwhelmed.
I've always been fascinated with all things related to the workings of the human psyche, however somewhere along the way, in performing the many inauthentic versions of myself, I lost myself. I was so disconnected from my soul and when I "should" have been happy, I wasn't happy at all.
True to the wounded healer archetype I journeyed through many a dark night of the soul via self-medication and a very deep and real struggle with a lack of self-love.
Buddhism teaches us that there is wisdom and enlightenment in our neurosis and suffering.
What could the wisdom be in being so sensitive, in feeling so much of the energy and emotions of others, in emotional trauma, addiction, or in self-loathing and feeling disconnected from the magic of my soul?
Deepening into the answers to these questions was my initiation as a wounded healer, my path to embodying my gifts as an empath and the reclamation of my soul.
I left the well-worn path to follow the path of my heart and deepest inner calling.
This has become my life's work, not only to continue walking the journey of embodying my own soul but facilitating this process for empaths, wounded healers and those going through life initiations at this time.
I am here to help you embody your essence.
I am here to support you in transmuting your wounds into healing gifts, spiritual strength, wisdom, self-love, beauty, power and light.
I look forward to being in service and walking this journey with you.
