Holistic Coaching Journey
I began my career 5 years ago in the field of psychology; learning all I could about the human mind and behavior, why we function and behave the way that we do, and about our miraculous brain. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Minor in Criminal Profiling (yes! This minor does exist!). I then went on to get my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling, in the midst of this degree I started to realize that I wanted so much more than to just be a counselor and to be held up under regulations and policies that didn't align with my values.
So, I decided to embark on the journey of mindfulness practices while in school by becoming a 200hr Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master. Eager to continue to learn about life, spirit, the mind, myself, and the world I continued to search for ways to start to bridge all that I've been learning together. I found coaching as way to 1. Start helping people before graduating and 2. To fulfill my life in a way that felt good for me and with my own set of rules. I became an International Accredited Coach, NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner. I became fascinated with the different ways I could help others, the different modalities and therapies to actually bring everlasting change and healing. Which has lead me to this moment, into becoming a Holistic Coach and Holistic Coaching Trainer.
At first it was all I ever wanted and more, but I became unfulfilled and misaligned very quick, something was missing. I had all these qualifications, yet, I was seldom using them because I was being dragged to focus on mindset, to focus on growing my business, to "do this and not that", to "focus on the strategy, and the strategy says that doesn't work"... I had it! I was losing focus on my true calling, I was misaligned and focused more on income rather than what I set myself to do - To be a guide and help for healing, transformation, and change. I took a huge step back from everything and I; released what no longer served me, reconnected within, realigned myself, redefined my definition of success, and saw that the coaching business was out of balance. After seeing my client's result by combining all of these modalities and therapies together I decided then to bring forth balance into coaching by helping other coaches align themselves through adding spiritual therapies into their business so they can serve more powerfully. And that's the key - so they can SERVE while being in alignment.

Spiritual & Journey of the Self
My journey started about 3 years ago when I truly found Yoga as a practice for my mind and body, rather than as just stretching exercises (this is what I thought about for 5 years prior to this moment). I became to understand the true nature of yoga because I was experiencing a season of anxiety and depression. I began to notice that yoga was so much more than body movements and an exercise to increase flexibility, it helped me quiet my mind, connect within, relax my body through breath, and flow in every way possible. Yoga found me, and this is when my journey of self-discovery, healing, transformation and spirituality began.
This practice became my mirror and teacher. And i was eager to start helping others do the same, bring out yoga into the world and teach to share the gift of yoga with others. I went through a hard breakup and that motivated me to continue to follow my dreams and got my 200hr RYT, alongside my Reiki Level I & II certification. Within these trainings I learned valuable life lessons and started to heal from my core, uncovering layers upon layers, and started to see how I wanted to share this with the world. During my studies as a future counselor and coach a lightbulb turned on and I realized how impactful it would be to mesh all these different modalities together. Through all the learning, my spiritual practice grew and I became more aware and started to uncover my patterns, hidden gems, shaddows, light, trauma, limiting beliefs, and so much more. I was able to do all this with the help of counselors, coaches and teachers through breathwork, inner child work, energy healing, Reiki, yoga, EFT/TFT, meditation, mindset work, and NLP.
I must say that I have come very far and I still have a long way to go, but that's what it's all about learning and growing. Through personal experience, education and implementation I am bring balance into coaching to help other coaches add spiritual therapies into their business so they can serve more powerfully, so they can a have a more well-rounded approach to help their clients connect mind, body, soul, and emotions.
