I have always felt called to help others. The intricacies and complexity of the human mind fascinates me. This led to my initial career in psychology. However, after working in the field for a number of years, I realized I wanted to focus less on what was wrong with people and more on helping people connect to their inherent wellness and live out their potential. Especially people that have gone through challenging experiences who need support to reclaim their wellness.
Changes in life circumstance can throw us out of balance, disempower us, and make us feel unwell as a whole. Believe me. I have experienced health challenges such as cancer, loss of loved ones, career change, financial uncertainty, and divorce. It’s easy to get out of whack. But over time I’ve come to realize that as tough as these challenges were, there were blessings amidst adversity and there was a capacity for wellness. It was all a matter of where I put my focus. If I focused purely on that specific physical condition or personal crisis, my wellness felt threatened. However, if I focused on the degree of social support, how relationships deepened, the amount of learning that occurred, the mindful appreciation of little things, the spiritual growth that these situations fostered, then I was well in many ways.
Instead of focusing on what I couldn’t control, I could focus on what I could do to facilitate healing and wellness in body, mind, and spirit. And I realized that I could do quite a lot! I have experienced the healing power and peace of yoga and reiki. I have experienced the power of wellness coaching myself and how it allowed me to explore possibilities and take action in ways that I never would have on my own. And I can honestly say my life has been drastically enriched because of it. I am happier. I am more hopeful. I am more confident that I can handle set-backs in any one area of wellness because I know I have strengths in other areas that will carry me through.
