A life-long global pilgrim and seeker, I travelled to over forty countries by my twenties, had the intriguing experience of living in 'model apartments' and 'model hotels', and working with agencies in Barcelona, Hamburg, Athens, L.A. and Toronto.
Although this life was fun and exciting at the time, unintegrated trauma from early childhood was increasingly difficult to navigate, and my relationship with recreational drugs,
alcohol and eating disorders began to feel increasingly like a self-destructive ticking time-bomb.
From a young age I'd developed 'defense patterns' that held my deep emotional pain at bay and kept me from being fully present. I'd subjugated my spiritual gifts and authentic Sacred Feminine Voice in order to fit in and be 'successful'.
