What can you tell us about yourself?

I have spent over a decade in counseling, helping my clients heal from past traumas, low self-esteem, negative thinking, false beliefs, and anxiety. My passion is helping people develop permanent self-esteem and inner peace through awareness. Teaching them to have innate worth and value in this life.

As a mom of five girls, a bonus mom to her niece, and a grandmother of twelve grandkids, I value family, creating memories, teaching, and learning.
Recently, I have decided to move my career online by creating healing and spiritual courses, serving on spiritual panels as a speaker, and speaking on webinars, masterminds, and podcasts.
I want to help heal as many souls as I can in one lifetime.

What were the main challenges at the beginning?

Getting visible online. Getting out there and getting people to know about my business is the most difficult.

Who was the most supportive of your idea?

My daughters, other close friends, past clients, and even current clients are the most supportive of my business ideas.

What is the main target audience of your business?

My main audience is people who are tired of feeling depressed, anxious and who want to change. Who wants to be free from negative thinking and want to have inner peace and self-esteem that is permanent.

What makes your offer unique?

I have a unique way of explaining the ideas and concepts I teach in a way that is easy to apply and creates permanent change in the lives of the people I work with.

Do you have any other passions?

I have spent over 20 years on a life journey gaining as much knowledge and wisdom about the human mind, self-esteem, and spirituality. A psychic-medium, a hypnotherapist, an energy healer, and an auricular acupuncturist, I also have special certificates and training in addiction, and am really good at helping people learn to understand addiction and stay sober.

If you could go back in time, what would you do differently?

I’m not sure that I would do much differently in my life as I believe everything that has happened in my life was part of the divine plan and needed to happen to become the person I am today.

What future projects does your business have?

I have developed two courses at this time. One on permanent self-esteem. One on tarot card mastery. I plan on making a course on changing your core beliefs. Then, one on what is the psychic ability and maybe one on talking to people on the other side. I intend to write a few books as well in my time. My ultimate goal is to have these courses on Udemy and Teachable. Then, to take my story and teachings and begin speaking for a living so that I may help to heal as many people as I can in one lifetime.

What challenges do you see ahead of you?

My challenges right now are to get out there and to get noticed.

What message would you send to your followers?

I want everyone to know that you do not have to live with depression, anxiety, negative thoughts, low self-esteem. You have permanent worth just because. You can have inner peace and be free.

Define your business in one sentence.

My business: Soul Essentials Healing – The Self-Improvement Journey. Learn how to heal your soul and have permanent self-esteem and inner peace.
