My Story

Childhood - Sobriety

I am the product of a divorced family, absent alcoholic father, survivor of childhood sexual molestation and gang rape.  At the age of 26, I overdosed on cocaine.  I am a grateful member of Alcoholics Anonymous since that day Aug 23, 1989.  I returned to school to earn my BA in Psychology/Addiction.  I engaged in many types of therapy and groups; Psychodrama, Gestalt, Anger Emoting, Co-Dependency, Hypnosis, Past Life Regression, EMDR, Real Love, Course in Miracles, and Way of Mastery,   I have studied addiction, dysfunctional families, PTSD, relapse prevention, languaging, sound and color therapy and kinesiology.  I have an insatiable thirst for emotional health and recovery! I bring all this knowledge and experience to you as your Life Coach!

Marriage and Children

I married my best friend in 1992!  He had two children, I became their step mom and helped raise them while they were in their teens!   I had two miscarriages before I would go on to have two healthy children in 1995 and 1997.  In 2004, my husband and best friend lost his 5 year battle of trying to get sober after a relapse on pain medication, in the end he committed suicide.  Our children were six and eight at the time.

Sole Parent - Today

Since 2004,  have been about raising my children as a sole parent and relying on God as my partner, savior, mentor, provider and comforter! I started my journey in Christianity at CCV in 2008 and today I am a member of Hillsong Church!  I have read countless books and continue to study and grow in my knowledge of the bible. I live a life I couldn't have dreamed of and I want to help others to do the same! I am blessed and favored! I am so proud of my children: my daughter graduated ASU with a dual degree and is continuing on to Law School.  My son is a gifted entrepreneur from the time he was a young boy and is now in his second year at the W.P.Carey School of Business at ASU.   My test has become my testimony!  I am doing what God has called me to do! Using my story, knowledge, and life experiences to help others transform their beliefs and renew their minds and live the dream!
