Work With Me
Everyone is GOOD for something! When we come into this world, we're already perfect as we are.
The problem starts when you don’t meet your own standards of who or how you want to be. And when you’re a young person, this frustration only gets worse.
When I was young, I wanted to be sweet," quiet, and blend in with the rest of my class... unfortunately, it became very clear that no matter how much I would like that to be the case, I was meant to be seen and heard.
Likewise, I got into a lot of trouble for speaking my mind and voicing my opinions. Parents, teachers, and adults described me as, "abrasive, impulsive, no filter, impatient, intolerant, rude and just plain obnoxious, really." So, so, so sad!
When you're labeled, it's easier to be the way others see you. So, you tell yourself: this is how *they* see me anyway, so why bother being nice? Why bother be how I want to be? It's how we self-identify and find our place in this world.
Once you acknowledge who you are and you embrace makes you *you*, it's freeing. By accepting ourselves, it becomes so much easier to be how we want to be.
Self-belief can take you to new heights.
What happens when you believe in yourself?
- You accomplish your goals.
- You're socially more resilient.
- You treat yourself with honor and reverence and you're treated that way by others.
- If you don’t love yourself, compliments won’t resonate with you --- you won’t believe them.
Mindfulness vs. Child Self-Awareness:
I wanted to pause to show you the difference between these two things.
Mindfulness exercises are intended to help us be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. (These can be so helpful!)
While I incorporate the use of some mindfulness exercises in my classes, the goal of my teachings is quite different from that of mindfulness.
My program is designed to assist in the emotional and spiritual development of the student. I help my students find autonomy, assertiveness, and confidence so they can make sound decisions for themselves.
In our classes, the students are introduced to the truest, and purest part of themselves (their soul.)
So, when we sit quietly in a meditative state, it's not just so we can be aware of our thoughts and feelings. We sit so we can be aware of our own divinity and subsequently fall in love with who we are as a person.
When we are able to truly love, appreciate, and honor ourselves, we increase our own emotional intelligence, the key ingredient for both social and professional success as we grow.
If someone is going to say something to hurt you, they will - but you can control how you feel and how you think.
(And I'm here to show you how.)
How This Works
Personal readings are one-on-one counseling sessions where we dive into the essence of YOU and I will assist in bringing you clarity and confirmation about your role in this life.
During our time together we will explore your birth-given gifts and I will give you suggestions on how to use them to your full advantage. The goal is always to inspire you to lead a purposeful and gratifying life.
I will answer any and every question you may have. No topic is off limits. You will leave the session feeling empowered and refreshed.
Words of Praise
Private work is perfect for young people who...
Dread going to school because you’re tired of your classmate giving you a hard time.
Feeling too shy to speak up in class - or embarrassed because you're constantly scolded.
Experience discomfort because of how you're perceived due to appearance or your own views.
Sometimes feel left out of social gatherings, parties, and conversations.
Just want to be liked - and you may have tried copying your friends to fit in.
Are stressed about your future - it's as though you have several roadblocks in the way.
