More About Me.
I am your every day Mom next door that had a Daughter struggling with mental illness. What we learned over time is that she was a gifted, highly sensitive & creative child. It has become my mission to educate and help others that are going through a similar journey.
Gifted children are often misdiagnosed or misunderstood. I know as I am a parent of a gifted daughter who received her first mental illness diagnosis at the age of 8. From the ages of 8 to 14 she received a variety of diagnosis, prescription medications, therapy and treatment facilities. Now at the age of 18, she is thriving while living a different lifestyle.
I am a mom who became an unlikely advocate for gifted children because her daughter needed me too. I empower other parents to nourish and cultivate the unique talents, gifts, and abilities of their children while embracing their journey as an Awakened Parent.
I know what it’s like to raise a child that is emotional, mentally or spiritually different, which I call a Sacred Child. My own daughter was put on prescription medication for anxiety at just 8-years-old. Feeling alone, searching for answers and needing support, I wasn’t sure where to turn. The journey took us through a maze of mental illness service providers, inpatient hospitalization, partial hospitalization, and inpatient residential treatment. When, at the age of 14, my child asked to stop taking medication, I knew at that moment there had to be a better way. I decided to take a holistic route to address my daughter’s unique needs. No longer numbed by medications, my daughter’s unique gifts began to shine. Several years later, she is thriving.
Through my coaching programs, speaking, workshops/events, and books, I empower parents to support their own sacred children in a loving and accepting space as I build a community of like-minded and compassionate individuals with similar parenting experiences.
I draw from my extensive education as a coach and spiritual practitioner to create specialized tools, and programs parents can use to connect with and nurture their gifted child. In addition to being a Certified Holistic Life Coach, I am a Certified Coach in Self-Esteem Elevation for Children, Certified ThetaHealer®, Certified Angel Card Reader, Kid’s Nutrition Specialist, and a Flower and Gemstone Essence Practitioner. I also hold certificates in Mindfulness for Wellbeing and Peak Performance, Indigo Studies, and Self-Love Guidance.
