Hello Beautiful Friend,
I'm Heather. A woman who decided to start loving herself & realized that it was her souls passion and calling to teach others how to do the same.
I woke up December 30th, 2009 and I decided that I was done being my own worst enemy.
I was done being depressed and hating myself. I was full of stored trauma from a childhood of neglect and abuse, self doubt, self hate, self sabotage, and almost ready to give up on life - again. Thankfully there was a dim light of hope and a will to push forward inside of me.
That calling and decision to change and heal myself has taken me on an incredible journey of self-healing, self-love, self-discovery, and what it truly means to cultivate joy in life. Thirteen years later, I have gained an enormous amount of knowledge and a tool box full of skills that have changed everything about how I see myself, how I love myself, how I talk to myself and I how I show up in this world as the truest version of who I am; stepping into my full power and shining brightly.
This has lead to how I see the world, how I love and treat others, how I deal with conflict and adversity, and how I have created a life of my dreams.
Through the last 13 years, I have not only traveled through my own lived experience, gaining invaluable wisdom along the way. But I also have collected an immense amount of knowledge. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology, trainings in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy and I am certified in many healing modalities including: Transformational Life Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programing, Body Code, Emotional Freedom Technique, Somatic Experience, and Reiki Level Two. I utilize a unique mixture of energy psychology & medicine, traditional psychology modalities, intuitive knowledge, human design, and the latest in neuroscience to provide practical, trauma-informed, self-healing solutions, support, and mentorship.
I have also been awakened into my spirituality and connecting to God Source and my higher self. I have opened my heart space and have become a direct channel from which some of the post divine and profound wisdom pours through. I cannot even take full ownership as often when I am speaking or coaching, it is this divine Christ Consciousness flowing through me! Through this connection, I have been lead to deeper emotional healing, grounding, mindfulness, gratitude, and manifestation - all of which I am passionate about teaching my clients and activating other healers here on the planet today.
Growing up in a poor and abusive home, to addicted parents and a narcissistic mother, I struggled through many issues and took on my parents false limiting beliefs. The trauma I experienced led to a diagnoses with complex post-traumatic stress disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, high anxiety, depression, many chronic illnesses, and a suicide attempt.
Inside I struggled to know who I really was and tried to be what I thought others wanted from me. I was lost and alone. I was a people pleaser with low self esteem and zero boundaries. I battled suicidal thoughts, perfectionism, extreme thinking, cognative distortions, negative self talk, and zero self worth, to name a few. As an empath I have always cared deeply for others, and somehow could not push past my inner critic to care that deeply for myself...yet.
My healing journey began January of 2010 in my last semester of college when I hit my rock bottom mental state; faced between attempting suicide again or putting myself in therapy, I chose therapy. It was a divine calling as I have been led into a deep and sacred initiation process for becoming a healer and coach. I am here today for the purpose of helping other women walking through the darkness and bringing them into their own light.
I know that it is my souls purpose to share this knowledge and help others. You have a light within you. It is whole, beautiful, and perfect. No matter what you have been through in life or how low you may feel right now... you can still change your Life and live authentically and abundantly. You just need to find YOUR light and stoke the fire, to dim the darkness and Shine Bright as God intended you to do.
In my personal life, I am a woman of many joys and passions, but none is greater than the passion and love I have for my beautiful family! For me, family comes first, and this is part of my heart-centered philosophy on life. Knowing what is most important and being able to set healthy boundaries to keep priorities in check! I am a wife to my husband, Zach, and mother to my son Leonidas and my daughter Athena. Thanks to my online coaching business, we now life in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, living life a life full of adventure, freedom, and on our own terms.
