I am a certified life coach specializing in self love, hence Essential Self Care Coach. My personal experiences, education, training and mostly my powerful intuition all come together to form a unique perspective. I bring all of these to the table as I guide clients to finding the ground, discovering their voice and developing a stronger connection to their true selves.
I suffered from clinical depression for 8 years in my 20’s. In my healing process I truly found a modality of healing that resonated and really worked for me. While I was going through marriage counseling in this modality with my ex-husband he asked what I was passionate about. When I searched my soul I realized I felt the most alive when I would offer help to new members of our therapy community at our weekend residential therapy retreats. This is when I truly felt alive.
So, when my therapist, April Prita Manganiello, started the Institute for Conscious Counseling and Coaching in Essex, Massachusetts, I enrolled! After a two and a half year intensive program of half instruction and half practicum, I graduated a certified life coach in January of 2010.
I have had great loss in my life losing both my parents to cancer, my father when I was 22 and my mother when I was 37. I am divorced. I was clinically depressed for nearly a decade.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
I am an intuitive. I use this gift to customize the work I do with my clients based on what I pick up from our discussions, their body language and mostly the clues I receive from them energetically. Whether we work one on one, in a support group or you attend one of my workshops, classes or retreats, I am confident you will leave feeling more like your true self with tools for greater self care on your path to self love.
