My mission is to help others unlearn old, limiting stories, and create and live out new ones that make personal wellbeing and joy a priority.
I have been providing coaching and hypnotherapy for the last 10+ years. I graduated from New York University with a master’s degree in psychology and earned a certification in hypnotherapy from Bastyr University outside of Seattle. My original intention when getting my master’s degree was to pursue a PhD in social psychology. As a multiracial (Black, Native American (Catawba), and white) woman who looks white, I wanted to study race and appearances, but life led me down a different path – a very long and winding one! – that’s brought me here.
A little bit more about me: I am an INFJ, complete introvert, gluten-free foodie, and love to curl up with a good romance novel. I live in Arizona with my boyfriend and our two children, work out of my closet office, and often dream about taking solo vacations (ahem…did I already say, “introvert?”).
Our value is inherent.
I believe we have inherent values as a living being, separate from what we do for others. This means you (yes, YOU) are worthy of a stable income, rest, joy, love, quality food, and so many other things that our society might tell you that you have to earn.
Intuition is our north star.
I believe that we are the experts of our own lives, and that intuition is there to constantly guide us. I trust your lived experience and your ability to determine what is best for you
Equity and inclusion must be intentional.
I believe that without acknowledging and upholding the most marginalized among us, their stories often get ignored. I hold space for all individuals, including those who don’t fit the gender binary and whose identities are often oppressed by society. I acknowledge my privilege and consistently seek to understand, uphold, and learn from historically underrepresented voices.
Our differences are our superpowers.
I believe that the things that make us each different – and that the world may have tried to get us to change – are the superpowers that can make us the heroes of our own stories. I believe in being more you than you have ever been.
