As she embarked on her healing journey her intuition guided her to free seminars that focused on self-worth, growth and positivity. A landscape that was foreign to her. This eventually led to her becoming a highly certified and successful life coach. Having been there herself, she understands the challenges women are dealing with and helps them find their own well of hope, self-worth and so much more through her signature Phoenix Process.   **PLEASE NOTE - This could be a tough listen for some as it deals with confronting subjects of child loss, suicide and sexual abuse.
