Purpose to Heal was created to provide a pathway to address the healing process that leads to our best selves. Now, just because the path is different for each of us doesn't mean we can't help each other along it. Healing and wellness are hot right now and it's about time!!!
The most important work we will do in life is on ourselves. The inner work of self-reflection & developing self-love allows for personal growth and healing. For this to happen we must give and receive forgiveness, show mercy for our mistakes, and take the time to put the pieces of our lives together so we can see the big picture. The mission of Purpose to Heal is to authentically discuss self-work and the process of healing in a constructive manner while aligning people with tools to facilitate truth and draw purpose. The goal is to bring awareness to the topics of overall wellness, life purpose, and parental abandonment with the use of spirituality, yoga philosophy, and creativity. We intend to lead people to heal so they can find the divine purpose for their pain and take leadership over their happiness.
How we take care of ourselves is important to what we will be able to accomplish in life. The body is constantly filtering and repairing itself, our cells, blood, tissues, and organs. However, we often neglect emotions as a part of the restoration of our minds and they need healing too. There's a lot to be done and our bodies can use some help from us. Wellness in your everyday life will allow you to achieve your full potential and live with passion and purpose.
Yoga transformed my life! I can't say enough about it. It was the tool God gave me to heal. The spiritual connection I was able to develop as a result of my yoga and meditation practice was the most powerful part of it all. It allowed me to open up to my pain and release my creativity. If you have not tried yoga before or only given it one or two tries, you need to start today or start again! Trust me, there is a lot more to it than stretching....
The need and longing to heal from my past led me to my purpose. I wanted to be fulfilled and I couldn't get there with my past holding me back. Now, I live a life in alignment with my gifts, talents, and skills. Through my journey, I came to this realization. My purpose is to help you find yours!
I will accompany you on the journey from aimless living to purpose living!

What is a Life Purpose Coach and why do I need one?
Coaches in any capacity draw out the best in people. Coaches inspire, motivate, and challenge you. A Life Purpose Coach is a person who coaches others on how to develop a life that is centered around passion and purpose. This specialty coach mentors people who are unfilled, lack direction or are unsure of how to navigate the journey to unfold their life purpose. Many people need someone to help them look at the bigger picture of their lives and make connections to help draw out what they instinctively already know about their life path.
What is the process of purpose coaching?
I provide individual coaching and workshops for small groups. My coaching includes a discussion of your profound life experiences, talents, skills, and personality among many other indicators to create your future life trajectory. Ah yes and igniting that passion for life that will get you through the dark times and light you up for the best life has to offer!
What is the difference between coaching and therapy or counseling?
Therapists are trained mental health professionals who diagnose mental health conditions. A therapist can help you work through past trauma, grief, and communication issues and help you develop coping tools to decrease mental health symptoms. There are many specialties or niche life coaches. In general, a life coach aids people in overcoming challenges, changing their mindset, and goal setting, to improve their daily lives, relationships, and careers. We all can use as much knowledge as we can get. You need a team to win in this life. If you decide to work with me, I will not be a therapist in my work as a coach but there are numerous transferable skills from therapy training that help me in my role as a coach.

The lotus is a special flower often associated with Eastern traditions such as yoga and Buddhist philosophy and it is known to represent awakening, rebirth, and enlightenment. It grows in dark muddy waters and breaks through to the sunlight, beautiful and full. The Lotus Notes is my blog for writings or notes that I share with you that reflect the healing journey. I say reflect because our healed or unhealed energy reflects onto each other.
Distance to Mercy: A Fatherless Woman's Journey to Truth, Purpose, and Healing through Yoga & Spirituality is a book for people who want to learn the tools to heal emotionally from trauma, disappointment, and abandonment. It is an honest detailed healing journey of a woman who grows up without her biological father and seeks to understand how this void has affected her relationships and her struggle for self-love and acceptance.
