It Really Does Take a Village!
When I think about my healing process, I am truly humbled by the amount of love and support I have received my entire life!
And, I strongly encourage you to embrace your village as you begin your healing journey. It is your village that will lift you up when you are down and keep you fighting when you want to give up!
And of course, finding the right healing team is just as important as your support team.

This amazing man has stood by my side through every allergic reaction, every illness, every treatment, and every tear. He has sacrificed so much for the benefit of my mental and physical health. He is loving, kind, generous, honest, and hard working. He is a true man in every sense of the word, and has helped me know what it means to have a “good guy” for a partner. With all I have been through in regards to men in my life, he is the reason I can love and trust. Through the healing process, he has evolved right alongside me. As I have learned about my trauma, we have had to make major adjustments to our relationship. And with every new challenge, with each new lesson, he Yes’s our marriage. He chooses me – and I choose him! Our relationship is stronger because of my illness, and I will always be grateful for his choice to love me unconditionally through it all. He is a man of courage, strength. and deep love. I am honored to be his wife!

Our son and his girlfriend are constant reminders for me to not take life too seriously! They work hard and play hard, and are great at keeping life simple. They have been good reminders to stay grounded, as my healing process has definitely taken me outside myself a little too often since it has been so uncomfortable to be in my skin.
Our beautiful daughter embraced the Truth of who she is around the age of 20, and has been one of my biggest teachers. She exudes joy, laughter and silliness, all while allowing her feminine beauty and intelligence to shine bright. She is the calm in the midst of any storm, and so eloquently demonstrates the power of unconditional love!
My amazing son-on-law (to be) has taught me Grace, and helped me through my healing process as I watched him choose to grow and look deep inside himself for how he shows up in life. I also strongly admire how he now uses his life lessons to help young men realize the power of the emotional Self. You can check out his work in “fostering equitable and regenerative communities” at www.journeymen.us.
These three beauties are the light of my life and were much of the driving force behind me Yes’ing a full healing. During the darkest times, when I didn’t know if I could keep fighting, my grand babies gave me the strength to pick myself back up and “keep on, keeping on”!
Our beautiful daughter has taught me so much when it comes to being willing to grow and stretching myself. Through self discovery and pure bravery, she has chosen a spiritual path that has opened her up to her true Self. She reminds me on a daily basis that choosing an authentic life is not always easy, but definitely worthwhile. She also is a teacher of the Earth. From her I have learned to appreciate the sacredness of Gods animal kingdom!
My beautiful mother! What can I say except that she is the reason I am alive and on this miraculous spiritual path! Since the very day I first broke out in rashes, she has been on a quest for answers. She even changed careers so she could learn more about my health issues, and was the first to open up spiritually in our family. As as Natural Path she has spent the past twenty plus years helping others heal. She is my confidant, spiritual teacher, and friend. I am sorry she has suffered so much due to my own suffering, but as a mother myself, I know she wouldn’t have had it any other way. I love you to infinity mom!
My dear, sweet, compassionate brother! He has been the wind beneath my sails, always lifting me up when I have felt like I just couldn’t take anymore. His mere voice has always soothed me, like a mother soothing her child when they get hurt. He has a way of turning my tears into joyful laughter, reminding me to not take life too seriously, and to play hard and laugh more. My brother is my hero in so many ways. He is generous beyond measure, funny as shit, kind, loving and playful.
My beautiful sister-in-law has stood by my side since the moment we met. She has loved me for who I am and supported me in every way possible. She is an investigator and researcher, and has often asked questions I hadn’t thought of. She has become a friend and confidant, and I am so grateful to have her as a sister.
My amazing sister! So much to say about this wonderful woman that has truly been by my side through it all! I can’t count the number of times she heard the tone of my voice on a message and called right back saying “whats wrong, are you ok?” She has talked me down from the ledge with her reasoning more times than I can count. If I were having an allergic reaction and couldn’t figure out the source, or needed a strong voice reminding me to stay focused on the solution, she was the person to call. She is the beautiful soul that looked me in the eyes in 2017 and said “you are dying, we need answers”, and started me down the road to wholeness. She is strong and courageous, kind and generous. She has constantly pushed her challenges to the side to help me. Well not any more sister. Now I get to have your back too :).
