My areas of specialty come by me honestly; I am a trauma survivor and have had a money story that I’ve had to rewrite.
In my early twenties, I was assaulted and left for dead, and thankfully, had lifesaving surgery.
The trauma had just begun though; I suffered years of crippling anxiety, complete post-trauma, was attracting the wrong people, and spending money as if I was living in complete deprivation which led to, of course, deprivation. There’s more, but I’ll save those more detailed stories for another time.
The plot-twist is that I was still surrounded by a loving family, some good friends, and mentors, and I had a will to thrive, not just survive. I turned it all around and decided I wanted to help others to do the same.
I’ve worked with individuals, couples, and children, in helping them break past what was holding them back; some of those areas were:
- Disordered Eating
- Childhood Trauma
- Abuse (everything from emotional abuse to financial abuse)
- Narcissist Abuse Recovery
- Life Transitions
- and more…
I’ve also worked (neuromarketing capacity) with international nonprofits, mid-size companies, family businesses, and entrepreneurs, in helping them develop ethical marketing strategies to help them find their ideal clients, consumers, members, and customers.
I can barely boil water (true, I’ve had the fire company at my house more than once due to my “cooking”), but I have a knack for helping people create fiscal freedom, self-value and a life that they desire, with the love they deserve.
In my 30 years of experience in helping others through stress, anxiety and trauma, I’ve learned that for me, the most direct route to happiness for my clients, is empowerment through recognizing self-value.
Some of my advanced training includes certification as a financial education specialist, lifestyle and mindfulness, meditation, and trauma recovery, through the Zur Institute, Wharton School of Business, Harvard Medical School, and the Benson Henry Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital. I’ve been a speaker at numerous events, including the American Marketing Association and various colleges and universities, nonprofits, and groups.
I’m what one might call “Neuroatypical”. I see the world differently, so as you get to know me, my weird will fly, but you’ll feel better, so it is what it is.
My obsession with the I Dream of Jeannie television show was a muse for my research in transpersonal psychology; trans meaning “beyond” the personality. It is a holistic approach to the person. I don’t see your challenges as isolated but rather connecting to the past and every area of your life; and I prefer to transform the suffering into energy that we can fuel the future positively.
I live in Chester County, PA, with a well-dressed, rescue Yorkie named Djin-Djin (of course!).
