From Bipolar to Blissful: My Story of Radical Transformation

Saying YES to My Life 

I found Holistic Health when I was at my darkest. I had been struggling for years with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. My body and mind were extremely imbalanced.

I found myself on nine different psychiatric medications and was on 11 medications total. I gained 100 pounds. Chronic pain, suicidal thoughts, insomnia, daily migraines, digestive issues, constipation, and hypothyroidism were all physical challenges I needed to heal. 

I was full of anger, hurt, and shame. I was not able to take care of myself and needed to live with my parents. The below picture is of me with my nephew Porter. His birth brought love and light into my life. When this picture was taken, I was barely leaving my house. 

Food Sensitivities Caused Pain and Mood Issues

Everyone's body will respond differently to food sensitivities and food allergies. My dairy and gluten sensitivity caused severe inflammation in my gut.

I suffered from daily migraines, constipation, digestive issues, stomach pains, severe acne, anger, depression, suicidal thoughts, and weight issues. Ignoring a food sensitivity can cause it to turn into a food intolerance. 

Because I ignored by symptom for so long, I was unable to function in the world. Something radical would need to be done for me to fully heal. 

Do any of these symptoms sound familiar to you? If so, you may benefit from doing a food elimination cleanse or allergy testing.


A Google Search Saved My Life 

I found my bliss through Google. One day, in desperation, I typed “how to heal naturally from mental illness” into the search engine.

My Google search opened up doorways for me that had been previously closed.

I discovered a world of self-healing techniques, mentors, educators, coaches and healers to help me. Many of these people taught me through books, podcasts, videos and blogs!

Knowledge Brings Bliss 

I was so on fire for healing, I enrolled at The Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA) in Tempe, Arizona. I received my degree in Mind/Body Transformational Psychology along with several certifications in healing modalities. 

The knowledge I gained at SWIHA was priceless and brought me to where I am today. 

Life Coaching Shifted My Mindset 

The Master Life Coaching program changed the way I think, act and live my life. I began to shine brightly as I applied the coaching protocols taught in class. I love how coaching has made me a better person and practitioner. 

Subconscious Work Released Deep Blocks and Pain 

The Clinical Hypnotherapy program helped me heal my subconscious blocks, traumas, and limiting beliefs. I feel like I can accomplish anything now and love to empower my clients to do the same.

Self-hypnosis helped me release the medication and the weight. I feel so passionate about my changes that I share the benefits of hypnotherapy with anyone who will listen. 

Ayurveda and Nutrition Created A Foundation for Change 

I studied Ayurveda Medicine and Polarity Therapy which allows me to assess a person on a mind, body, and spirit level. These healing modalities use the elements and the chakras, a powerful system that creates healing and awareness. 

I also began to use food as medicine and discovered I could heal disease and illness using certain foods. Juicing has been a powerful tool for me on this journey. My parents say I came alive when I began to juice daily. 

 Spiritual Work Reconnected Me to My Purpose

I spent many years looking into my soul using spiritual healing work. I worked to heal my relationship with God and how to connect to my Divine Purpose using meditation, prayer, and visualization. 

I have studied Delores Cannon and Doreen Virtues work to gain a better understanding of the spiritual realm and Divine energy. I use angels, guides, and the Trinity to guide me through life and my sessions with clients.

Understanding My Intuitive Gifts

I came to understand my intuitive gifts and learned to use them to guide me through all of my life experiences. My "bipolar disorder" turned into creativity and balance. My anxiety was released and I was more in tuned with the world. 

This shift in my mood and being brought clarity. I was able to see how the information I had could benefit others. I committed to sharing what I know and working with people who are ready to release the old way of doing things. 

Opening My Private Practice 

Since 2012, I have worked with clients in personal sessions to help them discover their own life of balance and bliss. My favorite clients are those who feel like they have tired everything, or those who do not know where do begin.

I teach classes at SWIHA, hold private classes, and see client both in person and virtually.

I have completed over 3,000 personal sessions and worked with over 400 individual clients. This means I have witnessed many people, just like YOU, transform their lives! 

Paying It Forward

I am currently working on creating courses and programx to support people who want to learn how to become their own healer. I live in Sedona, AZ and still commute to the East Valley once or twice a week to see clients. 

I look forward to offering signature VIP days for singles, couples, and small groups.  Stay tuned for more information on upcoming opportunities. I hope to continue to connect with you in my blogs and on social media.
