After drowning as a toddler...

My childhood was rich with spiritual experiences. Raised in a household filled with addiction and abuse, I became hypersensitive to emotional and spiritual energy. I began to shut down around seven years old and first leaving home by twelve. It was during this year I discovered the Tarot.
In those early teen years, I used the tarot primarily as a prophetic tool helping me manage the constant shuffling in and out of the homes in my community. The tarot was a beacon of light shining through the many complexities of my homelessness and addiction.

Shortly after my sixteenth birthday, I left my Canadian homeland with nothing but a few bags and boxes on a  Greyhound bus seeking to find some semblance of belonging. I was pregnant within my first year in the United States and found myself entwined in an emotionally abusive marriage to someone ten years my senior. Before my eighteenth birthday, I was divorced and had begun my journey as a single mother in a homeland I needed to learn to call my own.

I quickly earned my GED, I spent the next four years successfully climbing my way out of welfare. I had managed to purchase my own home by twenty-three. This year my connection to the Spirit world became restored. Initially my gifts were greatly misunderstood, as I believe most peoples are. I spent almost a decade under a heavy blanket of medication fighting mental illnesses I didn't have. As the dosages increased in strength, my connection to this reality lessened. I felt as though I was completely separate from any identity of myself—an empty shell wandering alone on this earth.

I suffered an emotional breakdown at thirty but later learned to call it a breakthrough as it was in this space I understood that I was a psychic and a medium. I began to learn that so many of the emotions that moved through me were not of my own and that the information I was receiving around me, all the seemingly random information and knowing, were actually accurate information and impressions I would pick up through energy. 

Understanding this information felt like I understood the truth of my existence within an instant. It was the most powerful moment in the reclamation of my true self and changed the course of my life completely. I began my long road to self-discovery, healing, and education in learning about what it takes to walk in the light.

I know what it’s like to be the victim and the offender. I know the pain of being stifled and the value of liberation. I have lived with both a grateful heart and have felt so low that I would want to take my own life.
I have suffered, yet it has put me in an extraordinary position of experience. I continue to refine my practices with ongoing education to use those experiences skillfully.

I work extremely hard to maintain a solid foundation of ethics, morals, and accountability on which my practice is known for and stands on. Whether you come with a curious mind or a broken heart, my efforts have been cultivated to offer a safe and respectful space to heal, speak about yourself, learn about Spirit, and facilitate meaningful experiences so you can begin to take charge of your life and well-being. In all my efforts, I hope to be a healthy representative of why we should practice energetic responsibility, experience life through powerful vulnerability, and strive to live standing fully in the authenticity of our true selves. And may we all be blessed to know and love that person wholly.
