My story

My journey inward started almost nine years ago after the devastating end to a relationship. Even though I saw it coming, I didn’t see it coming. I felt the floor turn into a sink hole, and down I went. Like Alice down the rabbit hole.


For the astrologists out there, this experience lined up perfectly with what I would eventually learn to call my Saturn return. It was harsh, it was painful, and it brought me to my core. I felt like Bill Murray from
Groundhog Day replaying the same day over and over and over and over again. That day lasted approximately 3 to 6 months.


Looking back on it now, it was fruitful in lessons that I needed to learn.
One thing I didn’t do was mask what I was going through. I’m a Sagittarius and half Italian so I believe in expressing emotions... mostly with my hands.

It wasn’t a conscious choice at the time, but I allowed myself to be sad for as long as it took to heal the broken-hearted damaged little girl inside of me.

Words like co-dependent, depression, trauma, abuse, mother wound and childhood abandonment started to become part of my everyday vocabulary.

I was a sponge for knowledge and insight. I became curious and engaged in my own soul-esteem process of unpacking all the shit from childhood to young adulthood and embracing the me that I was waiting to find.  The answer will always be love.

Here I am.
