As you embrace this journey and connect with your body, not only will you live in a profound state of gratitude, cherishing every step, but you'll also be empowered to serve those you're called to help with a heart full of purpose.
For over a decade, I have dedicated myself as a Pastoral Counselor, diving deep into the healing arts.
What truly drives me? Helping adult survivors reclaim their lives, rediscovering the peace and wholeness they might have thought was forever lost due to family traumas like divorce, sexual assault, codependence, and domestic violence.
I intimately understand the weight of hopelessness. My own journey began when I grappled with the lingering scars of childhood trauma. It was a path marked by fractured relationships and a painful sense of inadequacy. But in my darkest moments, the Holy Spirit guided me, leading me to the transformative Yoga of Relationship™ methodology. This journey allowed me to release the profound shame I felt, the gnawing sense that something was inherently wrong with me.
Balancing the heart of a spiritual mystic with the rigor of an academic deeply committed to Jesus, my faith journey is unique. As a disabled veteran, it was my unyielding connection with God that became the cornerstone of my recovery. And today? My mission is to share this profound clarity with you, illuminating your path towards healing and purpose.

I have confessed Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior; received both infant and adult baptism alongside the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I believe that yoga is essentially meditation; and that the purpose of meditation is union with God as mirroed in the Garden of Eden. I believe that certain 'new age' spiritual practices can be adapted to a Christian worldview (ie: crystals, new moons, essential oils, laying on of hands) and others cannot (witchcraft).
I believe that there is only one God who exists in three persons (Father, son & Holy Spirit); that jesus is the only way to God; that the bible is God's perfect word...
