“Two roads diverged in a wood and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost
This story starts in 2003, I was struggling with bulimia and constant UTI’s, a kidney infection, and strep throat, all while trying to go to college in Madison, Wisconsin.
College was extremely challenging for me because I didn’t think I was smart. I quickly found other things to hold my interest, like boys and partying. In 2005, I met a wonderful girlfriend who inspired me to get excited about learning. I will always be grateful for her, and slowly but surely, my interest in school started to grow, I raised my grades, and graduated in 2008.
After graduation, I moved to New York City with dreams of being in fashion marketing and living in the city for the rest of my life. I had a love interest there, a job, a place to live in Manhattan, everything was planned out perfectly – my path to a Carrie Bradshaw Sex and the City life was paved – or so I thought.
I was living in NYC when the market dropped in 2008 and I found myself struggling to find work in a chaotic market as an entry level, non ivy-league major. My love interest at the time wasn’t responding to me. Everything was crashing around me. My whole concept of what I thought was going to happen for me after college was crumbling.
I thought the best remedy for all this was to go to parties, see who I could meet, maybe make some connections for my career...but that just lead me deeper into drugs, sex, and clubbing. I was living in one of the best cities in the world, getting into fancy parties and clubs, being youthful and beautiful, and yet, I felt nothing.
I always thought my childish ways of handling stress through distraction and self-destruction would simply disappear after college. That’s when I would become an ‘adult’, start living in the ‘real world’ and magically know how to handle my emotions, fears, and life – right?
For the brief time I had a ‘real world’ job I hated it, so I started to doubt myself and worry about what I was supposed to do and what my life was supposed to be. I felt like everyone else handled all the stress so easily...so I started to come face to face with my own inner darkness, fear, and insecurities.
This darkness manifested in my relationship with drugs and sex, and soon, I was locked in the tight grip of drug use, having no respect for myself, my body, my mind or my spirit.
Fear consumed me. I spent hours each day at yoga trying to achieve enlightenment, but I never went to class without having a perfect outfit with makeup to match. I was a chameleon; I could be anything to anyone to gain their approval and acceptance. I fell deeper into confusion and self deprecating thoughts that increased with every line of cocaine and sexual partner I had.
I was trapped in the darkness and judgement of my own thoughts. It felt painful to exist. I was so lost. I thought I had everything planned out for my life, but look where I am now. Where did I fail? Was I simply NOT ENOUGH?
I remember smoking a cigarette, smoke and breathe swirling around me, as I leaned out my bedroom window, 6 floors off the ground, at six o’clock in the morning, listening to the hum of the FDR highway after attending Britney Spears’ birthday party, and looking down at the cement below thinking to myself, “Is this life? Just parties and empty talk about the weather? What am I going to f*cking do with myself?”
I thought about what it would be like to die that night. To never have to worry about life again. This moment, was one of the darkest moments of my life.
Finally, one day after yoga I started to see some light. I decided to stay for a meditation class with Alan Finger of Ishta Yoga in NYC. It became clear to me in the meditation that if I got the job I was up for, I would stay, if I didn’t, I would leave. I didn’t get the job. So I packed all of my things, said bye to no one, and left the city 3 days later.
I went back to my hometown Pittsburgh, PA and this is where everything changed. My Dad’s girlfriend told me I needed reiki, that I was spiritually sick. I didn’t know what that meant, but I felt a truth to it. I took her up on her offer and that day changed me forever. The deepest part of my pain that I had suppressed for years was able to be released. I still had much work to do, but I was able to make the first dent in healing a piece of my heart that I hadn’t accessed in years.
It was the next week that I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and for the first time, I felt beautiful. In that moment I knew, this was going to be my life. I wanted to give others the gift that had been given to me, the gift of healing.
In 2009, I moved to Austin, TX—the place that made my soul feel at home. Since then, I’ve made Texas my home, exploring yoga, reiki, crystals, hypnosis, the subconscious mind, and all things mystical. For the first time in my adult life, I was able to connect with my spirit and help others.
Every service I offer to you has had a direct and transformative shift on my own life. Through this healing journey, I’ve created a freedom plan, and that is what I share with you now—the guiding light to revealing your truest happiness, fulfillment, and love.
