I should not be here...but I am.
To be honest: I hated my self. I was ashamed of my sexuality. I hated my body and the face I saw in my reflection. I was in a marriage that was verbally abusive on both our parts. I was drinking my life away and to make matters worse, I was engaging in behaviors that were incredibly harmful.
And I thought it was everyone else's fault...
and that there was something wrong with me that made me feel this way.
At the age of 26, I officially got sober for the first time. At the age of 26, I finally took responsibility for my own happiness and my own self-love.
What has followed has been 6 years of deep self- study. Of therapy. Of mentoring. Of coaching. Of growth. Of evolution. Of change. Of holding on and letting go. Or rewiring the way my brain works and the way I see the world.
What followed my decision to get sober was changing the way I looked at the woman who was staring me back when I looked in the mirror- instead of always trying to change the woman I looked at.
What followed was my path to understanding, I am good enough. Just as I am.
That is why I mentor... that is why I write. Because I've been there. Because I needed people to show me what I couldn't see- I needed people to show me how to love myself.
And now it's my turn to help others do the same.
But I'm not just a coach who will help you get your life together-
I am an advocate for your self-worth.
The thing you've been denying yourself for far too long.
So are you ready to take a good look at who you REALLY are, and learn to love the person staring back at you?
I'm not for everyone... and that's okay. But I might be for you.
And there's really only one way to find out.
