I’m not your average hypnotherapist….or coach….or birth worker. One might say being a specialist in any of these areas isn’t a particularly good business model. I’ve “pigeon-holed” myself into a smaller clientele base, this is true, but what’s truer - and arguably more important - is that I’ve followed my authentic path. I’ve done what’s true for me, not what is conventional. And, I’ve had a propensity for beating to my own drum, following my inner intuitive voice, since I came into this world. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my fair share of social conditioning, trauma and hardship that “thickened my skin”, if you will, but even if I veered off course over my life and did what was expected of me (as a girl, a woman, a wife, a mother), I’ve always found my way back to my essential nature - I’m a service-oriented, highly sensitive & intuitive, empathic & compassionate spiritual visionary (who sees the pain but also the possibility in the world), and a truth-seeking justice warrior with a penchant for speaking truth to power and always asking, “but why does it have to be this way?”.
So you see, no matter what the world said I should be or do, or what I couldn’t be or do, I’ve still always dropped back into my heart, my truth, and followed my intuition. Even when it looked like the worst, most detrimental decision I could make. Even when all the well-meaning people said to do otherwise. I did what was true for me, what was right for my path, and I’ve never looked back. It’s not always been easy, but it’s always been right.
So, when, in business, I’m told to follow a certain blueprint for success, I consider it, and take what resonates true for me, and then pave my own path. I can’t just focus on the pain and healing. I’m an optimist, a glass half-full kinda of person, and always focus on the positive. Yes, the pain is there, I feel it too, we’re all human after all. But once you’re past the pain, wouldn’t you want someone cheering you on as you forge a path of truth, joy and fulfillment of purpose? To see and connect to the being that you are as well? That’s me. That’s what I do.
I hold the space to help you process your pain, let it go, and discover who you truly are. And this happens in all of the work I do - childbirth, hypnotherapy & coaching. The fun part for me is ALWAYS when my client goes - now that I’m no longer suffering, where do I go? And then we begin to explore their truth and their purpose. And I love using astrology as a pointer.
I’ve been into astrology as long as I remember (literally since I was a little girl reading the horoscopes in my mom’s Cosmopolitan magazines). I don’t live my entire life by it, I’m not dogmatic in anything, really. But once a client moves past the mental/emotional blockages, patterns and pain that caused endless suffering in their lives and kept them in perpetual defensive mode, helping them see what’s inherent and true for them can bring clarity to where their gifts, talents and passions lie, and propel them forward. Astrology can be so helpful here.
For example, I’m born on February 18th. Right on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces. I grew up thinking I was an Aquarian, based on conventional horoscopes, but discovered at 18 years old, that, in fact, I’m a Pisces. The year I was born, the sun moved into Pisces on my birthday, literally a few hours before I was born. I’m considered Pisces with Aquarius tendencies, and this couldn’t be truer. My moon is also in Pisces and my rising sign is Virgo. Combine all these together and you get exactly the person I described at the beginning of this blog. :)
Its taken tremendous healing, moving past a lot of fear (both accumulated in this life but also generational), and courage to make changes to my life that were out of alignment with my authentic truth (and my double Pisces nature), but once I started living entirely from this place of truth, I found a power and drive within me that I had only known two other times in my life - when I gave birth to my babies. A complete body-mind-spirit balance, free from psychological suffering. And I felt powerful yet peaceful all at once. I want ALL of my clients to know this profound inner balance, this great power, and use it for fulfillment of their purpose in this world, what ever that might be.
And so, I forge on, paving my own path of success. Even if its the road less traveled (or never!) traveled (thanks, Aquarius tendencies). Its what’s true for me, and while I have the gift & ability to see 5 steps ahead, and what I’m offering perhaps doesn’t look like what’s in fashion now, I intuitively know it’s what is needed to create a more peaceful world, and what will help usher in what Eckhart Tolle calls, the “New Earth".

Many mahalos to my amazing client, M., for gifting me this plant. It has sat proudly on my dining table since she came to see me at my home office, and reminds me everyday that I'm, indeed, fulfilling my purpose in this life. :)
