My goal and purpose in life is to help you Rise from Inside and connect to your Higher Self. My natural methods work to unlock your inner wisdom because you already have all the answers and I am here to help you listen to them!

My work style is upfront, no B.S.  I pick up on other peoples energy and that allows me to pick up on the type of communication  and coaching YOU need.  I am all about keeping it real and am always available.  Think of me as a mini yoda in your back pocket.  I am here to guide you and support you so, at some point, you don't need me anymore.

I was born and raised in sunny San Diego. Spending time on one of its endless beaches and soaking up summer rays was a daily ritual (I'm a Cancer and love the ocean!).  As I got older I started going through a lot of real sh#!.  I was dealing with depression and anxiety while going down a life path that was leading me nowhere.  I knew I had to do something quick so I decided to consult a doctor.  Their prescription -- take a few pills every day and they will help balance you out.  It sounded like a dream come true.  I was going to take these pills and all  my worries were going to go away.  That wasn't the case.  I remember looking at the pills and thinking to myself, "This isn't sustainable".

That's when I decided to look into natural ways to deal with stress and anxiety.  I decided to give yoga a try when suddenly a free week was offered at a studio nearby.  At first, I was obsessed with the asana (the physical practice).  I was competitive and wanted to keep going back to nail down all the postures.  As I kept going back, I noticed  that it wasn't so much about the physical practice, but more about using my breath to get me from one posture to the next. I decided to take that breathing into my everyday life.  I found myself dealing with stressful situations with a little more ease and peace.

Now, don't let me deceive you and say it's been all sunshine and rainbows.  Since then, I've gone through even more sh#! that has forced me to truly go inward and discover myself.  I guess you could say yoga was phase one.  Then through curiosity, I went to phase two and discovered meditation. I had to learn to sit with my problems and know that the only person who had the answers to my life was and is me. I began working with crystals and using their energy/healing properties to connect me to my Higher Self.  I began seeing angel numbers (at the time I had no idea what they were) and started working with energy/oracle cards. I realized that Spirit and angels are always around me guiding me every step of the way. I found all the answers to my questions if I just shut up and listened!
