I’m a dedicated single mother, inspirational speaker, coach and author of Who Will Hold Me? A Single Mother’s Memoir of Self-Love, Empowerment & Freedom.
Having overcome some unbelievably tough times myself, I’ve become wildly passionate about sharing the lessons of my life-changing experiences on my path of self-discovery to show other single mothers that a life full of choice and love is within reach.
I firmly believe you can transform your life, even when everything feels like it’s falling apart.
My own life is proof of that!
But the change doesn’t happen overnight…
A few years ago, I attended a spiritual retreat that would set in motion several life-altering events. The first happened when I returned home and decided to leave my seven-year marriage. This was the start of many harrowing experiences involving my now ex-husband that put my three-year old daughter and I directly in the path of his self-destruction.
I was heartbroken and bewildered by how quickly my seemingly stable life was upended. I watched my ex-husband be overcome by addiction as I was dealing with the new reality of being the sole provider for our daughter- both emotionally and financially. The situation seemed impossible and I was repeatedly discouraged and devastated by everything that was happening.
All I wanted was to be able to shake off my reality and build a new life.
Amid the turmoil, I turned within for answers to the painful and traumatic conditions my daughter and I were enduring. Through a deep journey of self-discovery and letting go, I reclaimed my freedom. I became free from external expectations, pressures and even free from the circumstances that were causing struggle and unnecessary suffering in my life.
A new life is possible
Today, I’m so incredibly grateful for the life I’ve been able to create for myself and my daughter. It’s a life filled with love, care and peace set amongst the backdrop of the beautiful foothills of Colorado. Life is better than I could have ever previously imagined for myself in those darkest of times.
It sounds too simple, right? Too good to be true? With all the pressures of everyday life like bills, homework, getting dinner on the table, when do you have time to attend to your emotional health? Well, I’ve been in your position, exhaustedly collapsing onto the bed after a non-stop day of putting out little fires everywhere and eventually crying myself to sleep.
When you’re going through bleak times like this it can feel difficult and overwhelming to even think about a different future. I’m here to reassure you that it’s possible to change your fortunes at any time. If you can just find a moment for yourself, to let me take you on this journey, you will at least not feel so alone. Baby steps.
I’ve learned invaluable tools and practices that allow me to take one hundred percent responsibility when life gets hard, as well as manage each challenge along the way calmly and confidently. I’ve implemented them into my life, and I’d love to share them with you in the hopes you’ll be moved to transform your own life.
My sincere hope is that myself or my story can be of some service to you as you find the right support for your journey. Although much of the work needs to happen within and can look like a solitary exercise, I want you to know that you’re not alone.
