I help women with cancer and other life-changing illnesses improve health and quality of life by helping you positively navigate your emotions, experience relationships and life in a new way, and discover life balance after diagnosis.

Did you know that your emotional health can affect your physical health?

What you feel and how you process those emotions can have a great affect on your immune system and your body's ability to cope with disease, as well as treatment.

Are you currently facing a health crisis and feel as if your world has come crashing down?

Are you motivated and committed to your healing? Do you look at the ups and downs in life as lessons instead or failures? Do you reflect deeply on your life and welcome opportunities for growth?

Yet---despite all of this---do you still struggle to think positively about your situation? Do you have loved ones who mean well but just aren't helping? Does the emotional overwhelm cloud your focus and make it hard for you to stay optimistic about the future?

Have you experienced grief due to loss, the loss of your previous state of health and sense of wholeness, the loss of a sense of safety and confidence about what tomorrow brings for you, your life, and your relationships? In spite of your best efforts, do you find yourself unintentionally sabotaging the success of your treatment plan? Are you finding it hard to remain confident about your treatment choices?

Is there a dark side to your positive traits that most people never see? It could be that you are so committed to being positive that you swallow your real feelings---your fear, doubt, lack of confidence about your ability to heal? Or maybe you are so used to caring for others that you are losing sight of yourself and what you require to become well? Are you so focused on "holding it all together" that you are unaware of your innermost needs? Maybe you've lost sight of how phenomenal you are and you just need help learning to be emotionally and physically healthy at the same time.

If this sounds like you, we should talk...

HEALING is not just in the BODY. It's also in the MIND.

 
 
 

Afiya: good health, the health of the soul, the body, and the mind. It is the health of life in general. It is the ease of hardship and the increase of all that is good.

 
I have supported many amazing women who show up boldly for themselves to heal and recreate themselves and their life.

These women are from all over the world, but have the shared experience of a present or past health challenge and the emotional difficulties that they face during and after their healing journey.

I partner with you to help you:

 achieve the emotional wisdom to help your body's healing process.

move beyond childhood and adult traumas to self-healing and self-love.

 discover and remove the obstacles to your pathway to healing.

 overcome the loss of your former idea of health and attachment to the identity of who you were before illness.

 navigate relationship changes such as miscommunication, disagreement over treatment choices, feelings of inadequacy due to physical limitations, and guilt toward caregivers.

 discover new confidence in who you are and what your future holds.

speak your truth and own your power to create a new life after illness and defeat self-sacrificing behaviors.

reclaim your phenomenal woman within and live fully.

There is no time better than this present moment to make a change in your life. Let's talk about how I can support you.
