Everything you are searching for is within you
My work is in service to helping people through life and death transitions in a way that feels in alignment with who they are and who they have been. I help people create more meaning through self-exploration, thoughtful reflection, soul connection, and bold questions.
My approach to life and death is positive, open, and non-judgmental. All are welcome here.
Everything in your life has prepared you for where you are right now. I’d love to explore how I can help you.
As a highly sensitive person, I’ve spent a lot of my life searching for meaning as a way of understanding myself and how I fit in the world. My search for meaning goes deep and internally I’ve always longed to have conversations about life and death but it didn’t seem socially acceptable. When I was 25, my baby was born still. It was the most traumatic, sorrowful, and lonely experience of my life and is part of my passion for change in how we hold the tenderness of life and death. In 2009, the spirit world came into my life in a way that could not be ignored and, I began studying subtle energy and what exists beyond the veil. For most of my life, I have rejected “normal” while also trying to be part of the status quo which is a strange and sometimes incredibly painful place to be. I am in a constant state of unfolding and unlearning. My way of being in the world is a constant returning to Home.
I felt so safe and supported to express my own views and learnings along the journey, without fear of judgement or being told what the ‘right’ beliefs are. I loved how you took the lead in the most loving way Rhea, acknowledging everybody’s opinions and stories and also sharing your own was really insightful.
