I am a health facilitator, chronic pain management specialist, addiction recovery coach, Ancestral Clearing Practitioner, yoga teacher, and best-selling author who has been continuously sober since 2013 from opiates, benzodiazepines, and nicotine.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree and I am a Yoga-Informed Recovery Coach (Recovery 2.0), Kundalini Yoga Teacher (IKYTA/Yoga Alliance), and Ancestral Clearing Practitioner.
I specialize in helping people heal from chronic pain and offers workshops and individual sessions around the world.
I am the author of “The Way Through Chronic Pain: Tools to Reclaim Your Healing Power.”
I live in Lawrence, Kansas, where she helps people find and build a stable recovery path. She practices and teaches yoga and Ancestral Clearing.
I experienced 59 years of chronic pain and 32 years of addiction to prescribed opiates and benzodiazepines. The only answer the doctors had for my chronic pain was medication. My pain was not addressed by this strategy. In fact, it was exacerbated by it. I became hypervigilant, suffered from hyperalgesia and frequent debilitating panic attacks. My health suffered greatly because this approach led to:
a) my pain getting worse and worse;
b) a compromised ability to breathe and digest food, so I was not able to take in nourishment; I was dying inch by inch, cell by cell.
c) depression and hopelessness.
I finally found a doctor who understood the nature of the underlying causes of chronic pain. He taught me how to find my way through, without medication. I healed and live a thriving life. You can, too.
I found peace and vitality. I never want anyone to go through what I experienced ever again. I am here to share the tools I learned to heal from chronic pain – without pharmaceuticals. I would like to help you experience this transformation in your life – and my methods are based on my direct experience.
