I believe that we are all brought into this big, messy world for a reason. We each have a purpose, gifts, creative expressions, and love that enrich our lives personally, locally and globally. We get to choose how we "show up" and play the roles of our lives. We can choose to live & learn from the shadows and embrace the light & adventures of living. Our lives are our creation.
I hope that you will choose to shine brightly and maximize your days with joy in this shared experience of being human. Your presence here matters. Truly, you matter.
A seeker was born. Curious and precocious by nature, yearning to understand this thing called "life" and why we, as humans, did what we did, do what we do. Learning everything that she possibly could about the world around her.
That curiosity persisted and she made her way into adulthood, first studying Psychology at George Fox University while entertaining a volleyball scholarship. Then, moving into the Body Arts of therapeutic massage at Inland Massage Institute, becoming licensed in the state of Washington in 1997. Shortly thereafter, returning to the love of the psyche, studying clinical applications of hypnotherapy at the Hypnotherapy Institute of Spokane, completing Clinical Hypnotherapy Certification in 2001, certified by the A.C.H.E. (American Council of Hypnotist Examiners) and becoming an Ordained Minister with the S.H.E.S Foundation (Spiritual Healers and Earth Stewards) the same year. In 2009, she first delved into patterns of NLP, neuro-lingusitic programming, an effective tool for optimal communication, becoming certified that year as practitioner level, as well as a certified Success Life Coach from Transform Destiny Academy, and later, in 2014 as a Master Practitioner of NLP, Hypnotherapy, and Coaching from The Empowerment Partnership and The Association for Integrative Psychology. And, in between the various professional courses, has been countless hours of continuing education and self-guided learning.
