And this is my story…
When I was a little girl, … I wanted to be a librarian. Maybe because my father was a librarian, …maybe not. Maybe because I loved to read books. I finally grew up and became a librarian of my own kind. I was an information-giver. My culture was reading, but all the more, it was reading ‘people’. I realized at a young age, I may not be called to be a librarian, but maybe… discerning life lessons and guiding others on the path to a better way of living, was.
At a young age, I begin to give knowledge away – in any form, whether letters, videos, conversation,… because I saw how it helped people to GROW. Then, it became my profession. Which eventually led to coaching, to writing books, and sharing courses, and being a therapist….the coaching , gleaning and instruction never stopped.
Today, I am a working therapist and hospice social worker, by profession, but I am also a chaplain. I realize I have been given a special gift of compassion. Pain began to be something I didn’t run from, but I instinctively learned to hold – to grasp, to cultivate into desires to help others get to the other side of : Yes.
Healing work has become my journey. And pain has become my passion. Being a social worker for over 27 years has truly been a blessing. My work with women has inspired me the most. In and out of my profession – whether in South Africa, in online groups – via several states; and the like.
I enjoy working with women in substance abuse struggling with domestic violence and repetitive patterns they cannot seem to change – whether it be in relationships, anxious thoughts or worries, or relating to self -esteem issues and concerns of self-worth.
I realized I wanted to do more and the only way I believed I could be my best with the work and calling on my life was – with God – holding my hand as I helped them. I realize growing in God was the best way to grow mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and receive divine healing in my life.
I also love to coach women. In my experience, coaching from friends and colleagues have changed my life. I own a coaching network of reading and implementing self-care exercises that can shift how you live your life. You are welcome to visit my website here. And my reading and coaching platform here.
