My Personal Journey
I am a survivor of childhood sexual, physical and emotional abuse. In adulthood, the effects of my childhood abuse played out in love and sex addiction and intimacy avoidance. I was a serial monogamist, desperately seeking The One who could take away my misery and bestow me with self-worth but I only succeeded in leaving behind a trail of broken hearts on both sides.
As a recovered love and sex addict and intimacy avoidant, I understand how trauma can deeply affect one’s emotional health and ability to live a full, happy and enriching life.
Once I became ready to acknowledge that I was the common denominator in my dysfunctional life and realized that change had to come from within, I gained a deeper understanding of how my past conditioning and traumas created the unconscious rules I was living by; rules I unwittingly allowed to control my life and relationships.
I discovered hypnotherapy and it had a tremendous impact on my personal healing and soon after bit the personal development bug. I absorbed books on healing trauma, love addiction and living consciously. I developed a serious addiction to seminar therapy which led to serious financial difficulty but that’s another story. In all, once I became conscious of the unconscious rules I was living by, I adopted tools to help me regain control over my emotional state and began making better informed choices about how I live and love.
Climbing out of my deep, dark hole of despair took courage and support. It required courage and support to look at those inner hurts to find the fuel to transform those hurts into power, into self-awareness, into intention, into confidence, into trust, into self-love, into happiness, into joy and peace.
The journey continues and am now passionate about helping others uncover the unconscious rules controlling the destiny of their lives and create conscious, enriching lives.
If my story resonates with you or someone you know would benefit from creating meaning in their life and relationships, untethered by the emotional baggage of the past, then I would love the opportunity to support you.
