In 2012, my life fell apart.

I left my decade-long first marriage (which was fine—but neither great nor terrible), my oldest child received an autism diagnosis, and I met the love of my life.

[Not necessarily in that order.]

This was after I’d already left a soul-sucking-but-stable corporate job in 2011 and struck out on my own as an entrepreneur.

For three years straight, I felt like my identity was in a perpetual death and rebirth. Sometimes, I look back and wonder how I made it without losing my sanity.

The most unconventional paths ended up helping me the most.
I became a recovering people-pleaser.

I started owning my medicine.

Today, my life is completely different.

I’m in the best marriage I’ve ever heard of (we’ve had 8 incredible years together so far). My business is thriving—Since 2011, I’ve personally walked thousands of people through massive reinventions: career changes, amicable divorces, psychic awakenings, re-birthing and identities dying. Our purpose-driven business has empowered us to buy a home in the San Diego mountains and we’re slowly restoring its backyard food forest (and building a badass tree fort, too).

I’ve embraced (and empowered) my inner Empath through in-depth—and ongoing—training in both “ordinary” reality (neuroscience, physiobiology, trauma, somatics, clinical herbalism, and entrepreneurship) and in “non-ordinary” reality (the metaphysical realms) in Peru, Mexico, and the United States.

I am proud to support so many wonderful humans as they take back their lives.

I am free to be my Potent, Weird, Empathic, Highly Sensitive self.
