Outsourcing Our Power

What is "outsourcing our power" and happens when we do it?

We lose touch with the knowledge and the wisdom that resides within us.

Our bodies are powerful truth tellers and hold a ton of wisdom, as do we, when we allow ourselves to access the wisdom that resides within us.

The problem is, because most of us have not taken the time to cultivate deep and nourishing relationships with ourselves, we feel we can’t trust ourselves, or that we aren’t safe people to rely on for our own well-being. So, we turn to those outside others –other people, places, and things—for our safety and well-being.

Why Do People See Psychics Rather than Therapists?

We all want answers, so much so that the psychic industry is a multiBILLION dollar one. What makes them more popular than therapists? What might it be like to work with a therapist who has psychic and intutive gifts too?

What is Wholeness?

When you lose touch with your wholeness, you fall out of harmony with yourself, and you experience a feeling of brokenness, of incompletion, and physical and mental dis-eases as a result.

The process of becoming whole again is all about finding all of your lost (or exiled, shunned, excluded) parts and pieces, and getting to know them. Once you are able to hear their stories, hear what they have to say, they can then be healed and re-integrated into yourself, helping you return back to your wholeness, filling up your holes from the inside out.

The Value of Personal Healing: As told by a healer

The Value of Personal Healing: As told by a healer

As a therapist, coach, and all around bad ass healer, sometimes I forget what it took to get here.

While I was on the phone with a new coach I recently hired for myself and she challenged me on mindset, I informed her that I have actually invested thousands of dollars over the past few years in working on my own personal development, healing, and growth. I knew I had done a lot of personal healing, I just hadn't realized how many tens of thousands of dollars I have spent in doing so. I felt the need to let her know.

Transformation in Therapy

Transformation in Therapy

Therapy is messy. However, if you do the work and you stick with it, you will come out the other side and then be able to look back on the beauty that was the journey. After all, in order for the caterpillar to turn into a butterfly, it has to digest itself and swim in a soup of its own organs in order to reemerge as that beautiful butterfly. 

The Message Inside Out Has for Us

The Message Inside Out Has for Us

Although the character in the movie is an 11 year old girl, the same principle applies to all of us:

We can be happy, healthy adults, loving our jobs, and having great success in all areas of our lives, but then something happens, perhaps our 3rd boyfriend in a row breaks up with us, and we can spiral down into the depths of despair that lead us to believe we are not good enough, not worthy enough, that there is something inherently wrong with us, and we turn to behaviors such as shopping, eating, drinking, or having random sex with people to help us manage the unmanageable feelings. 

When Fear Runs the Show

When Fear Runs the Show

How can the Universe bring you the relationships you deserve if you are operating on fear and constantly fighting, running away from, or freezing anytime a relationship presents itself to you? It can’t. So I invite you to take a moment to ponder that...
