I am glad you found my site! Welcome!
Let me introduce myself.
I am a mother of two wonderful girls and a wife of a hard working artist! I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and registered art therapist (ATR) . I work full time in my private practice with a group of like-minded, wonderful professionals! (www.trinitycounseling.net) and I LOVE using my oils in my practice to help others build a healthy life! I have learned so much in my years about healthy living and continue to learn more daily.
Now, I don't know if you are at all like me but I have always been health conscious. I have been a weightlifter and power lifter for many years, and learning and changing my lifestyle to attempt to be healthier. In my journey, I hit a snag. A BIG one... One that was life changing. I made a few drastic changes in my life that altered the course of my health in a negative way and I am currently trying to recover. Slowly, day by day, I am learning more and more and repairing my health.
In a nutshell, I discovered how much food and every day "things" in my home impact my health- or better yet, disrupt my natural health. Things like makeup and cleaners and food that are ultimately TOXIC to my body and change my hormones and functioning. Gross things, that impact my brain, body and overall well-being.
My family had to suffer a long two years with my health being challenged. I researched and learned and had to be my own advocate in this health care system of ours and, luckily for me, most of my providers listened to me and my learning which was a huge support in regaining my health.
One of my biggest changes included switching many items that I thought were non toxic with Young Living products. My greatest discovery was that Young Living is NOT just oils... Did you know that?? (Now you know! ) I was blessed by learning of the supplements and household products that could be replaced by these incredible products that I know are better for me and enhance my health (see SeedToSeal.com), unlike many of the mainstream products.
Since I have been trying to reclaim my health, I am taking products more seriously and researching the cause and effects of various ingredients to better support my health and that of my family. I am learning all the time how to change out products or make my own to do better in this short life of ours. I desire to live my BEST life with those I love and help others achieve a better life as well.
I recently obtained an Aroma certification to use in my therapy practice to help dissolve and reduce negative thinking and trauma. It is incredible how the oils work! I do AFT specific sessions that help with goal setting as well- it is not just a therapy tool! Stay tuned for another post that focuses on AFT and how you can use it!
