After all those years as a woman hearing: Not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough, almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought "I am enough." Anna Quindlen
I am the epitome of a work in progress: not trying to be perfect but being the best version of me that serves a higher good for all. With that comes the acceptance that I am not a size two, do not necessarily fit the standard of beauty for any particular group but accept that I am enough. I hold a doctorate in therapeutic practices and currently work with students and adults that have special needs. My circle work focuses on supporting women that have doubted being enough, feel misunderstood and unsupported, experienced trauma, estranged from family, lacking a nonjudgmental network and just not sure where they fit. Not having biological sisters, made me build my tribe from a young age. These women have watched me laugh, cry, held me up when needed, been my sustenance and celebrated with me as I reached my goals. This all done from a place of loving support. I strive to support other women as they get to that point. I love family, crafting, museums and artifacts, photography, interacting with nature and being near water.
