If so, I am here to guide you.
I am passionate about working with the sacred art of grief because I have had to face this within myself in many forms.
The biggest thing I learned is that it is an important time to invest in the support to grieve properly. It's time to honor your loss and shed light on your pain. It is possible to make sense of the sweeping mix of emotions. You do not need to suffer alone.
I consider experiencing major loss a noble rite of passage. One that deserves to be treated with reverence and honor.
I am here to guide and support you each step of the way.
I will be a listening ear and a catalyst for love.

My Grief Story:
"Mama I love you, Mama I miss you, Mama I love you always.
Mama I love you, Mama I miss you, your love is with me forever.
Your love is with me forever."
This is a song that came to me after I lost my Mother to Cancer in 2010. Now it is a powerful heartfelt melody that shakes through me from the depths of the earth to heal the pain from nine more losses I endured between 2010 to this present day. Some of these losses were closer to me than others like my close girlfriend, my Step-Father, my Grandma, my Aunt, and my Grandpa. Others I didn't have as deep of a connection with but their death impacted me on a deep level nonetheless. I have learned to swim in the deep oceans of grief, riding the waves of emotion with fierce grace and immense gratitude. I have fallen down and gotten back up again and again only to feel stronger and wiser each time.
I realized shortly after my Mother's passing that many people are grief-illiterate. I was too. I didn't know how to respond to loss in a healthy way and safe spaces to grieve seemed too few. Time felt as if it had stopped, yet life continued on around me like normal. I felt lost, confused, and alone. I wasn't sure where to turn but a part of me knew I needed professional guidance beyond my close friends and community. I
sensed that this was one of those big life transitions that deserved a lot of attention and care.
Thank god I listened to my intuition. Once I began doing individual work with a professional the deeper healing began. I was able to face those giant waves of emotion and allow them to wash over my body while staying present and knowing that these emotions were not bigger than me. I let my body shake it out and do whatever it needed to do to heal and let go. I had someone to help me understand what I was feeling and give me a roadmap for an experience that occurred as complete chaos and madness.
Over the years I've continued to listen to my intuition and find resources and tools of all kinds to continue healing and growing. Now I am clear that I experienced all of this loss for a reason. It was my initiation into my unique gifts and a path to my greater purpose. I was being hollowed out so the light could shine brighter and stronger inside me.
Now I am ready to give back. The best way that I've found to give back is to become a Grief Counselor and Transformational Coach to witness and hold space for others that are navigating the depths of grief. I am a stand to normalize grief and contribute to a greater paradigm shift in how we relate to death as a nation. This is what means the most to me. I know that if I were on my death bed looking back on my life I would be filled with joy knowing that this is how I chose to spend my time and energy. And for that I am eternally grateful!
