Get Mad, Say No & Turn Your Tears Into Wild Woman Flames

She Turned Her Tears Into Flames

As an Epiphany Midwife, I greatly enjoy supporting my clients in finding clarity by reclaiming their power and listening to their souls. I intuitively access multiple healing modalities. Much of my healing journey has been informed by my quest to heal myself of my own childhood traumas and to put myself back together in the midst of a challenging divorcing process. I've recently completed a nine-month re-birthing process with Heather Ashamara's Warrior Goddess training!
