I have always felt a desire to give to others. I love watching someone opening presents and their face as they enjoy what they have received. I am a mom to 3 grown sons who I love to the moon and back. My heart holds them close, and I treasure every interaction with them. I love to think about them and talk to them and listen to the wisdom they have and give so freely. I taught academics to Special Education students to see the AH-Hah moment when a student “got it.” That made my day! I also taught to help some students work thru resistance and disabilities to get to the Ah-Hah moment.
Have you ever been in a room when someone starts interacting with a child who is struggling and unhappy? Have you noticed the atmosphere change when he/she presents an activity, song, dance, touch, an acceptance of the struggle they are experiencing, and the child stops what they are doing and notices and then moves toward that person? I am that person. That is the gift God gave me. I’m here to help children and families. Children in trauma are where I feel I can be most helpful. I am currently writing a series of books about childhood trauma (see quote below).
“As Jakie’s home environment starts to become uncomfortable, Jakie starts to feel pain in his heart and abdomen. He is having difficulty coping and his body seems to disappear or become less significant. This signals his “fight or flight” response in the sympathetic nervous system. Stress starts to build, his mouth is dry, heartbeat accelerates, pupils dilate, lung airways dilate, stomach activity is inhibited, the stomach converts glycogen to glucose, intestines are inhibited, adrenaline and noradrenaline are produced, and the bladder contraction is inhibited. He has nowhere to run and can’t understand how to feel anger, so he begins to cry and shrivel or hide into his own perception of himself.”
Tug to your heart? That’s YOU in there asking for guidance, permission, love, compassion, a listener to heart and soul, someone with intuition to “know” what you’re saying, what you fear, to help you cope, understand how much you love and hate, who can give guidance and encouragement as you set up passions and hopes for your future. You may need me to offer a thread to lead you into your life’s purpose and make that beautiful Tapestry of Love that you’ve always wanted.
My coaching involves the integration of neuroscience, biology, nutrition, yoga/movement, and emotional and spiritual (God directed) guidance.
I am intuitive, some say I am an empath – I use that gift with skills I have learned thru a lifetime of teaching and working with children, babies, and toddlers and their parents to coach children. I can “play guide” with children to help them perceive the positive, to communicate their needs, and to enjoy their environment. I can open doors to help parents understand their child’s world.
“Yes”. I truly love people and want the best for each person. I want you to find your passion and reach for it, to know that there are going to be struggles and obstacles in your way and to use them to become stronger and more resilient. You are HERE for a reason. That reason is your purpose! Your obstacles are unique to you and help to guide and form your character.
I will work with adults and help you find your passion and your strengths, letting you walk me through your smooth or tangled mind, body, soul tapestry and guide you through the process of entanglement toward fluidity, coherence and truth.
