​​ Discovering your Authentic Self

Our life goals have not been about what our ego failed to do, but what we failed to discover about our true identity. A fulfilling life is really about bridging the ego with our core essence. Many people haven't had the proper training in life to attain this.  Restoration of identity requires both the head and heart. In these workshops, people begin to regain parts of themselves they may have neglected.  

We were created for Perfect Love but we also learned fear.  In the workshop you'll receive necessary truths that lead you to experience the power of Perfect Love. You will gain a deeper understanding of the state of your present identity and learn what's been missing. 

If you are willing to involve both ego and essence, you may be stretched past your own abilities or comfort level.  But this is how true transformation happens! It's a spiritual and natural unveiling that unites your mind with your heart when you encounter God's Perfect Love. You can discover the power of grace when you partner with the truth. “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

When you believe the truth with your mind and allow grace to strengthen your heart, transformation happens naturally because we were created for relationship with God who...is able to perfect that which concerns us.  (Psalms 138:8.) You are becoming who you really are! Being willing to face your inabilities while in a more intimate relationship with God, you draw from His ability in you. Allowing the Author of Perfect Love inside you opens up greater possibilities than previously imagined. Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:2

Your life story is far from over! You can rediscover things about yourself that you didn’t think you could. You have parts of your heart worth feeling and expressing again. It'll be as if a knot is unraveled and your true essence becomes engaged. What seemed out of reach can become accessible, the impossible becomes possible. The real you is revived, free to be real and loved unconditionally. No longer will you fear rejection from man because God, your Heavenly Father wants to “reveal truth and wisdom in your innermost being.”  as stated in Psalm 51:6.

Common Results:

  • The walls of ego protection come down 
  • Becoming empowered to be free from addiction 
  • Recognizing emotional triggers and tools to redirect

  • Clearer perception free from mental fog
  • Enriches your relationship with yourself, others and God

Many approaches to mental health involve behavior modification which for some people may seem more mechanical and less spiritual or relational. Those methods may help some people, but to others it feels superficial, almost like a system of management, lacking a deeper connection. Understanding who we are first, makes what we do have much more meaning.

I am not a counselor but if needed, I refer clients to my husband Malcolm who is an LPC, specializing in Substance Abuse, EMDR Therapy, Couples Counselling and Trauma Work (click our image on the contact page). We both believe that true self- discovery often comes through the safety of a non-judgmental relationship. 

Unlike counseling, my services do not involve a diagnosis. Feel free to contact me to schedule a workshop or to receive Life Coaching sessions today! 


I offer both full or half-day workshops that cover the highlights from all 8 sessions. Whether you're planning in a church function, a retreat, a home group, a book club, anywhere we can gather will work. Depending on the size of the group or the desired level of interaction, I can tailor the workshop according to the groups specific needs.

  • Our stories of redemption have great purpose
  • Understanding our physical and spiritual DNA
  • Reprogramming traumas and unresolved issues
