From where I stood 10 years ago, it seemed completely impossible for me to live a life of ease, feeling head over heels in love with myself and with life.
Now I wake up with a deep sense of trust and love.
My inner wisdom guides me in every way.
I go to sleep with waves of satisfaction washing over me, in infinite appreciation of all the elements of my life that make it so extraordinary and meaningful.
When I came to the United States at 12, my whole world changed. I recognized the incredible opportunities available to me.
I was damn determined to create a life that my parents hoped for. There was only one teeny problem…
I just couldn’t conform to anyone else’s idea of a good life.
I couldn’t deny my intuition no matter how hard I tried. So I struggled to conform in college and developed depression and a binge eating habit. Somehow I still managed to graduate from UC Berkeley with a 3.8 GPA.
In the process, I became a really good fighter – bring it on, I can conquer it!
I worked in investment banking, making tons of money and jet-setting around the world… I was supposedly living the dream, but inside I felt absolutely wretched.
As I continued binge eating, self-loathing, anxiety, and depression, thoughts of running away to India and living in an ashram forever seemed like the only way out.
This was a dark period of hopelessness, sadness and impenetrable loneliness and it was at this time that I decided: f*ck it, I’d rather die then live as a pale and unrecognizable version of myself.
Fighting yourself is always a losing battle.
No matter which part of you wins, you are left feeling torn up.
I had already been practicing yoga for a few years by then and loved the oasis of peace I experienced through the practice.
Then I went on a 10-day Vedanta silent retreat and I experienced true inner harmony for the first time in my life and I felt REBORN!!!
I realized that my connection with Source is all I need to feel in harmony with myself and appreciation for my life.
I no longer needed to control every detail just to feel OK. And that felt like a huge relief.
After that, things unfolded pretty quickly.
I became a success coach for college students. I got certified as a yoga teacher and taught classes and ran teacher trainings. I discovered Wayne Dyer, Abraham-Hicks, Michael Beckwith, etc.
I recognized that everything is energy and I create with thoughts.
This idea changed my life forever.
When I enrolled in an M.A. in Counseling at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (now Sophia University), I dove into an intense and life-altering period of self-work.
I was determined to let go of fighting myself and learn to love and accept myself at the deepest levels possible.
And then life happened, again.
In the middle of grad school I got engaged and immediately
pregnant… with TWINS!
I had the most incredible pregnancy and an extraordinary 6-day home birth!
As a mother, I fully stepped into my power as I created the
unbelievable and lived the impossible.
In my husband and kids, I found mirrors that constantly show me opportunities to heal, reveal and soar. With my children watching everything I do, it’s more important than ever for me to live a life by design, not by default.
I am here to deliberately create my dream life and help others do the same.
Not just in theory, but in practice.
As in: a mate in your bed, money in your bank, etc. And most importantly a strong sense of inner worth and respect.
Accepting, loving and knowing total well-being for my clients comes easy for me – because I can do it so clearly for myself.
Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing you manifest your greatest visions and master your life!
