Resources

Hi Friends! I’m so grateful you are seeking direction for your journey to healing and happiness, and choosing me as one of your resources. Here are some tools that I refer to, that help keep me grounded, provide laughter when I need it and are wonderful for emotional support and guidance. I cannot stress enough the importance of adding laughter and positivity throughout your day. Whether it is through meditation, counseling, movies or books I encourage you to seek your own sources for incorporating inspiration into your life. Please check back as I discover and add new sources of encouragement. Enjoy!

Speakers, mentors, books, movies and music that I use when I need to be soothed, motivated, or I simply need a little comedy in my life:
