Self-love Coach, Yoga Teacher & Reiki Practitioner
I know what it’s like to feel lost, unlovable, and not good enough. I’ve struggled with body image issues and lacked any sense of knowing that I was in control of my own life.
I’ve been on a lifelong journey to find self-love, balance, and peace within all aspects of my life. By using a combination of holistic healing methods I’ve overcome abuse trauma, self-limiting beliefs, and low self-worth.
Truth be told, self-care and personal growth never stops. There are always more layers of yourself to uncover, revealing your authentic self time and time again. In the past, I can admit my self-care practices were more ego driven. They stemmed from vanity, outward appearances, and desire for approval from outside sources.
However, through 8+ years of inner shadow work, research, and learning from teachers of various forms, I have found self-love along with my true purpose in this life. That is to use my past experiences and collective knowledge to hold space for you so that you too can discover the real meaning of self-love. To help guide you in the direction that will finally lead you to a life that’s authentic to you.
Where did my healing journey begin?
In my junior year of college, I was watching a Carli Bybel makeup tutorial in my dorm. In the video she suggested the book “The Untethered Soul” by Michael Allan Singer.
After reading this book my curiosity grew. Was it possible to be truly happy? If so, I wanted to learn how I could achieve this for myself. I began to shift away from the beauty videos and became intrigued by the more spiritual side of YouTube. This is when I discovered Vishudda Das, spiritual educator and author.
The summer after I graduated, I found my local Yoga studio in The Bronx. I was hooked instantly, though at the time, I didn’t know how drastically it would improve my mental health along with empowering my physical body.
Beginning in 2017 and continuing through today I’ve done a lot of traveling. I’ve gone on spiritual retreats, volunteered in disaster relief efforts, backpacked Europe, and lived in small mountain towns in Colorado and the PNW. Travel in and of itself has had a major influence on my healing journey.
In 2021 while living in Colorado I discovered Reiki Energy Healing and its many benefits. Reiki taught me that everything is made up of universal life force energy. It helped me create balance within and taught me how to trust my intuition. I became a certified Level II Reiki Practitioner. After 7 years of practicing Yoga, I officially became a certified 200-hour yoga teacher in the Spring of 2023.
The truth about healing…
The process of healing is not a straight and smooth path, there are many bumps and turns, hills and valleys. But with the healing methods I have collected on my journey through life I now know what it feels like to truly love myself.
It is my goal to share my experience and knowledge with everyone who is struggling with self-love. I want to help anyone who seeks healing and peace find the power within themselves to overcome their traumas and societal programming.
I understand that everything is connected- mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When you heal your entire being, you will finally be able to love yourself.
Yes, life will always have its ups and downs, but my intention is for you to be able to course correct from future stressful situations bouncing back faster and stronger than ever before.
So, I ask you- do you love yourself? There was a time when I sure didn’t… but I found my way to self-love, and I know that you can too.
