LOVE LIFE. LIVE BOLDLY.

As someone who has lived through some of life’s most difficult traumas–including sexual assault + relational and betrayal trauma–I believe that we all have the power within to become our best self and live life boldly. 

My life began in a small, one stoplight town in the Midwest surrounded by corn-fields and creeks. Today I live in California by the ocean and mountains where I feel the most at peace.

How did I get to this place in my life?

Well, it happened in 2013 when my best friend and husband of 17-years, the person I loved and adored, disclosed secrets that betrayed me, himself, our family and the community. When this man I trusted all these years revealed to me that he was gay and holding secrets of multiple addictions, the news slammed me to the floor and made me question everything. Could I survive the pain and find forgiveness? How would I like my future to look? And could I make a new life when I felt so broken? 

As if hearing and living this trauma weren’t enough, my husband’s disclosure triggered the resurgence of trauma I had also suffered from a sexual assault and subsequent birth of my first child at age 17. The pain was overwhelming, yet I lived daily by what my parents taught me when I was 17 years old: place one foot in front of the other, and keep walking from a place of integrity. You will get through this. 

I put on my running shoes and ran for my life.

I climbed mountains and paddled the ocean to release my fear and anger. Nearly two years later, the healing work I did created a shift; I felt a sense of being grounded. I felt safety, clarity, and forgiveness. It was time to help others do the same. 

At the core of who I am lies a teacher; I would rather share my knowledge of growth and healing for the betterment of others than anything else in the world. 

My intention is to connect with you, the client, and guide you on your healing journey. Are you ready for a shift? Do you desire empowerment and change? Are you longing to feel inspired, find your purpose, and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment? 

My intention is that through 1:1 coaching, my programs and retreats in the Grand Canyon and Alaska, or by purchasing my book, WALK THROUGH THIS: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness, you will become the person you aspire to be. 

Please reach out. I created all of this for you.

RED HEELS

I was constantly being questioned how a mom of three boys could reinvent her life at 40 years of age, guiding and coaching others in the Grand Canyon/Wilderness. At the same time, my femininity was being questioned as I was exiting a marriage where my husband is gay.

Though seen as strong, I wasn’t always seen as feminine … which stung.

At my Core, I am Pure Woman. I am also an Adventurer at Heart.

I decided that I wanted a symbol, something for me, which would show the world that a woman does not have to be put in a box. I wanted to show that we can do our nails and summit a peak on the exact same day. We can hike trails, climb boulders and still come home to put on a dress and heels. We can embrace, love and honor all sides of ourselves.

It came to me one day while running. “I will buy a pair of red stilettos and wear them on the peak of Mt. Baldy…for me.” I posted my picture on social media and the response was surreal. Through that one picture, a message was also posted to the Universe… that women CAN be Strong and Feminine.

My heels have seen Peaks throughout Yosemite, Mt. Wilson, Cucamonga Peak, Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto, San Bernardino Peak, San Gorgonio, the High Sierra Trail, Mt. Whitney … and many, many others.

Red represents courage, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. I will never stop embracing me…

Hopefully these red heels give you the courage to do the same.

It can be scary to be seen. I get it. Because when someone sees you, both your light + shadow parts, we tend to wonder if we are being judged by that person. Which in turn, many times creates self-judgment + shame within ourselves. It’s so much easier to run from people who see ALL of us. But my question is always, “How exhausting to continue running your whole life?”

I don’t judge. Instead, I prefer to think of all of us as perfectly imperfect human beings on our life journey. Shadow parts + all. Everyone - EVERYONE - has them. Our parts are what makes us whole.

I held my client’s hands this week + was about to share my affirmations in her amazing work. SUCH an incredible soul (you know who you are!) She turned away once she looked into my eyes and said, “These eyes! These eyes. Oh my gosh, these eyes are like - like - there’s a thousand words in those eyes. They frighten me because it’s like you’re some Sage that can see down to my soul. And I’m like, “What is she thinking?””

I’ve heard this before about my eyes. In fact, a special someone in my past called me Sage as their nickname. Now I understand why. I do believe that our eyes can see into our own soul .. and those of others. IF we grant permission to be seen.

So .. on this Friday .. I’d like to challenge you. Go look in the mirror. Look into your beautiful eyes. Those eyes that mirror your own soul. Sit with your reflection. Your gaze. And see into you. Affirm yourself without judgment or shame. Sage the darkness + shadow parts of self with your inner light. Tell you that you love you. That you’re proud of you. And that - my gosh - YOU have beautiful eyes!

Tag those in your life whose eyes YOU love. And share your thoughts below.

Remember: I see you.

All my love .. in all ways.

Holy 🔥 .. I had THE BEST podcast interview with @dr.lisamarie.delrio this week! All about healthy relationships, narcissism, psychopathy .. and masculine versus feminine energy. The timing on this was Heaven sent. My online healing community, The Trail, was gifted the episode early, and the response has been INCREDIBLE. The episode drops on October 13th. If you don’t subscribe yet to my Live Boldly Podcast .. GO DO IT! Link is in handle. You will find it on Apple, Google Play, Spotify + Stitcher.

Our storyline can be changed. We can heal. We can receive. We can find happiness. We can let ourselves shift our patterns and try a new way of partnering. Every relationship teaches us something. Make sure, first + foremost, that you learn a little more deeply about the relationship with self, first.

Cheers to it all, friends.

Share your thoughts + questions below.

I love you.
I love us.

Happy weekend!
