This is my Story...

I did not become an expert in my field specializing in trauma with a successful practice simply by textbooks alone.  

My childhood was saturated with adversity and trauma (which ultimately became my gifts).  I saw and experienced it all:  poverty, addiction, sexual abuse, single parenthood, domestic violence, chronic illness, the whole she-bang. 

When I was 12, I was committed into my first mental institution and by age 14, I was facing incarceration for the first of many times. Throughout my entire adolescence into early adulthood, I was shuffled through the system, labeled and medicated.  On top of all that, Lymes disease was simultaneously & unknowingly wreaking havoc on my health.

So, if you feel like you’ve been through some shit - welcome, you’re in good company.

I spent the first half of my life believing that I was broken, crazy and destined for a life of hardship -- just to spend the second half of it healing, reclaiming and owning the fuck out of my worth and wisdom.

For the past 20 years, I have committed myself to a path of healing like never before. 

I went from being a product of the system and a high school drop-out to graduating from an Ivy League University top of my class and spending the last 12 years in the field as a master's level social worker working with underserved communities from around the globe. 

My career has led me to develop an obsession with neuro-psychology and the incredible connection between science and the sacred and how that relates to human behavior. I am living proof of what it means to overcome trauma and even against all odds, I discovered healing and a life I never thought possible. 

In my journey back to self, I was gifted with the knowledge and experience of now being able to help facilitate that process for others.

I am fiercely passionate about helping people break-free from trauma and overcome the shit that is holding them back from creating their own personal legacy. 

I live in the Sierra foothills of Northern California where I run my private practice out of my home/mini farm and work as the trauma-informed specialist at a local treatment center for low-income families. When I am not working as a therapist + coach - you can catch me being a rebel hearted, loud-mouth New Yorker who loves hip hop, bougie hotels in exotic places, psychedelics, books and dismantling the patriarchy. If you want a non-judgemental kick in the butt to break you out of your BS stories - I’m your woman.

 About me...

First, I want to applaud you for making it this far down the page!!

I graduated a Psych major from SSU years ago - and quickly realized I didn’t want to be stuck in an office providing therapy to clients all day long. What I truly wanted to do was to help people find their own path to healing - by connecting with nature as the source. 

For the last 20 years of my career - that’s exactly what I have done: I’ve worked as a coach and mentor with thousands of children, teenagers and adults - who want to connect with the wisdom of nature and access growth, healing and evolution through it.  

A few years back, I was in a dysfunctional relationship - even though I was killing it in my professional career. We argued all the time, pretended like everything was fine on the outside and rode the crazy emotional rollercoaster in private - and swung between blinding rage and being wildly in love with each other. I would invariably land up crying on the kitchen floor, wondering, “why does my life feel so bat shit crazy on a daily basis?” 

While I looked successful (we bought our home, traveled abroad, enjoyed life etc) and ran a well-known non-profit - I was a complete mess at home. I was stressed, overwhelmed and couldn’t figure out why the hell my relationship wasn’t working. I was sick and tired of pretending like everything was fine.

Every therapist I went to said: “You’re fine - it’s not you, it’s him.”

But I wasn’t fine. I was the one who was creating the shit show around me. 

At one point, I was just DONE with this emotional rollercoaster. I couldn’t bear the thought of being in the same shitty relationship for another year, feeling miserable on my birthday ever again - or having to put on a “happy face” to go through life while feeling crap on the inside. 

I had also been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, massive hormone imbalances, and no amount of supplements or diet changes helped. My health was going downhill - and fast! 

Over the last 12 years - I committed to healing myself and spent over $25,000 on self-help - from Tony Robbins seminars to coaching to therapy - I did it all. Only a few things moved the needle - and the rest just made me feel worse!

What really helped - was to get consistent at a few things. One of the biggest game-changers for me was to start working with neuroscience-based practices. 

I went from being outwardly successful but inwardly miserable - to having an intimate, loving, non-volatile relationship of my dreams with the same man. 

Today, I am deeply passionate about helping people dump their BS stories from their past - and connect to their own wisdom deeper than ever before. 

When I am not working as a coach or running my teen wilderness program - I can be found on the beach, surfing, playing with our pups or cooking up a brilliant mess in the kitchen.
