I’m glad you found your way here; I invite you to have fun exploring your empowerment, awakening, and celebrating the gifts from the woman within you.

I believe in my soul that every woman has the unique power to overcome fear, anxiety, self-doubt, and victimization issues so thatshe can unleash her inner strength to live an authentic life. Every woman deserves to believe that she is enough!

That is why I guide and mentor courageous women over 40 who are ready to break free of their limiting beliefs, step into their soul purpose, feel empowered, awaken their feminine soul, and live from a fiercely enlightened and fully expressed place.

Liberating transformation starts from within

~ My Story ~

Like many women, my life’s long journey has had emotional and physical struggles, along with many challenges.

I grew up in a small Israeli town, the oldest of 5 children – all women. I have been supporting and caring for women all my life!

I completed nursing studies and performed my compulsory Israeli military service as a nurse. I met my Canadian husband in my 30s and soon moved with him to Canada. I was far from my family, found myself in a new culture, learning a new language, and needing to obtain new nursing certifications to continue in my career.

Obtaining the certifications was not a quick and simple process, and living in a new country added to the challenge. I started feeling unworthy, lonely, and scared. I didn’t know what to do, and I was surrounded by people who didn’t understand how I felt. I started to get depressed, feeling shame and guilt. Who could I turn to?

I started to feel sorry for myself. I suffered from anxiety and a constant feeling of urgency. I was unable to deal with all of the challenges of the move and the culture shock. I found myself stuck in a pattern of destructive behavior, feeling like an outsider, only seeing myself as the victim of my story, completely unable to see any other options.

I knew I loved myself and my new husband enough to make this life work, but I also finally realized I needed to find myself again. I needed to stop building my life around my husband and instead discover my happiness. I wasn’t sure where to start, but it was at this time that I enrolled in healing art studies. I earned certifications in holistic modalities including aromatherapy, meditation, Reiki master, reflexology, and chakra balancing. I started to take control over my life and face my fears, looking within myself for answers, healing the emotional wounds and shadows that I previously couldn’t handle.

My personal healing started when I realized that I was not the victim in my story. Everyone in my story was affected by the life changes that occurred. Throughout our lives, we ALL have challenges we need to deal with. I began to have a better understanding of my story, and grew to have more compassion for myself and others. I started to be in the present moment, aware of the self-triggers, the way I talked about my story, and why I was still holding onto it. At this point, the shifting and awakening truly began!

I found within me the compassion and forgiveness for my story and for everyone in it. I also understood that I cannot control others – I can, however, control/change myself and how I view things. I became free of any attachments to that “victim” story, transforming it so I understood that I am the heroine. I stopped blaming myself or anyone else, and began to acknowledge my role. I discovered my voice and inner joy for life without the shame, blame, and guilt.

With reflection, meditation, and training, I was able to empower myself to embrace my inner feminine soul and emerge transformed – joyful, peaceful, and authentically me!
