"Being brave isn't being fearless! It means you know the arena you are about to walk into is uncomfortable and maybe even frightening. Being brave means you walk into it anyway. I will walk with you, one brave little step at a time."

MY THERAPY & MINDFULNESS RECOMMENDATION

Magic Moments Logo.jpg

www.magicmomentsplay.com

My passion is to support children, teens & adults in their desire to show up as the best possible versions of themselves. As they navigate through life's unexpected challenges, I am here to help them embrace, accept and claim full ownership & accountability around their life-changing moments that make them exactly who they are meant to be. 

 

In life, magic moments are defined by the uniqueness of our life purpose. Magic moments are the moments of awareness, chaos, pain, disruption, repair, redirection, intervention, evaluation, alignment and clarity. When I become aware of the magic surrounding me, I can be open to seeing the magic within me. In trusting myself, I am open to what my magic moments have in store for me. I have the power to shift and do something differently.

 

Being different allows us to have influence to simply share who we are with the world. What a beautiful way to stay connected, grow, learn and expand into the next ever-evolving versions of self. Becoming confident in sharing who we truly are takes courage, vulnerability, willingness, bravery, time and practice.
