I spent a ridiculous number of years being really and truly unhappy.

It started young.

There was five of us, three dogs, four parakeets, and three hamsters, emotional AND sexual abuse. YOU do the math. 😁

I spent most of my childhood mediating/abating conflict and trying to avoid the spotlight and the moments where my parents were screaming to ‘call the cops!’

Then, I got married. And divorced. And married again. And divorced again.

None of it was easy. I SO didn’t want to be unhappy, and I so didn’t know how to change it. I tried every single way ‘out’ the world tells you will work: church, therapy, EMDR, bodywork, meditation, and self-help book after self-help book. And it helped some.

But at 35, I found myself on the lawn in front of my big farmhouse, in my second marriage, weeping & about to go drown myself in our bathtub. I hit total, utter rock bottom.

No one ever told me that I KNEW.

That I was aware.
That 99% of that awareness wasn’t even mine.
That feelings and things were creations and not things I had to make real for me.
That I had just been a target for some really mean & insane people.
That I was stronger than I’d ever acknowledged.

On and on and on and on.

Until Access Consciousness.

And after one BARS session, I knew something different.

There was a S P A C E created for me there that I had never experienced before. And the beginnings of a glimpse into what was actually possible if I chose to go farther.

I’d been seeing this amazing BIE practitioner right before that Bars session; but I knew after just one round of Bars, that I needed more.

In five sessions, I was able to change the constant over-analyzing that had plagued me with headaches & unbelievable inner conflict.

I quickly took my first Foundation class, and that class changed the trajectory of my whole life:

in 8 months I became an Access Consciousness Certified Facilitator.

My life today is unrecognizable from what it was.

I have 15 times’ed my annual income.
I have an amazing relationship that just… works.
I travel the world – sometimes three weeks out of the month.
And I have a fucking phenomenal and vibrant online business that lets me play with amazing people all over the world.

I teach classes all over.
I facilitate global online programs and calls.
I create the space for people to choose and be more of them.
I author.
I coach with other solopreneurs.


I live.

There aren’t even enough words in the English language to express the level of gratitude in my world for Access. For Gary. For Dain. And for all of my kick-ass facilitator friends who are out there creating more life.

If you’ve ever known that something else MUST be possible – that there has to be something MORE….

You know. You. And I can’t wait to watch you fly.
