I’ve always had a passion for people. From a very young age, I recall being drawn to people and experiences that were different. My parents have told me from as early as three or four years old, I had a desire for inclusion; to help others, especially those that were negatively judged; to make people laugh and feel more comfortable. Some have suggested it was an early indication of my singing and performing passion, others have said of my therapist career. I believe there’s a bit of truth in both of those theories. Through my own personal development work, including mindfulness and meditation, I’ve come to believe it was also my innate gift of recognizing and experiencing emotional energy. I was particularly sensitive to emotional energy yet didn’t come to understand and learn to consciously manage it until much later in life. I spent much of my mid-adolescent years trying to manage other people’s energy in order to deal with my own, which was the exact opposite of what I needed to do. However, as a girl, I was told to smile, be nice, and avoid conflict. Whether told to me directly or indirectly through modeling and insinuation, somewhere I interpreted my role to be the eternal sunshine, editing or ignoring my own emotional guidance system in order to make everyone feel comfortable. This certainly came at a cost, not only to my emotional body, but to my physical one. For the first time in my life, I started to feel bad about myself and some of my choices began to reflect that. I encountered shame, victimization, fear, and doubt. Had it not been for my spirituality, my passion for music and a support system, I could have gone down another path. Therapy was not something I was raised with; the stigmatization was too great.
Fast forward to now, I am committed to the destigmatization of mental health and its reform. To designing and facilitating inclusive, accessible, and innovative resources, that support people in discovering who they are, beyond what they’ve been told to BE or labeled as. There is no one size fits all in the personal development realm. We are all uniquely human. This is my passion; to support, inspire and empower humans to be compassionate, conscious, and connected. This human experience is about connection and we are always stronger together.
