"I can’t begin to express my gratitude for this organization. It has saved my life time and time again in more ways than one. I don’t think I would be standing here if it wasn’t for the women who stood by me through this past year. They are my rock. If I could be just half the woman these ladies are I would be content for the rest of my life ! Thank you for all you have done and continue to do. I will never feel alone again because of all of you."
-S.M. (on working with RIA House)
In 2010, after working in the restaurant business for 15 years, I was given the opportunity to walk away from a career I once loved and walk towards something even better. With a new found freedom and time for reflection, I found my way back to my true self: healer and teacher.
I took trainings that would bring out the best in me and enhance the skills I knew I had but never fully understood how to access. Those trainings ignited a fire in me and triggered memories that reminded me what I am here to do: help others to live their most authentic self. Once I found myself, I was left with no other choice than to help others find a similar freedom within themselves. I am now available to others who are trying to find their way to true happiness.
My new path led me to work as a peer coordinator at Recovery Connection in Marlborough, MA, which then led me to Everday Miracles in Worcester, MA, where I met the founder of RIA House. Since then I have been working with some of the most inspiring and courageous women I have ever met. RIA House is a non-profit organization whose mission is to stand with and support women with experience in the commercial sex trade, and its associated exploitation, trafficking and prostitution, by providing a range of community-based services. By facilitating empowerment groups at recovery houses and other organizations in Massachusetts, I get to witness miracles on a daily basis!
I am a Facilitator of Healing. I bring the love. I help connect you with love. And from there, your journey towards self-healing unfolds. I will hold space for you and all of your thoughts and emotions; all of your dreams and visions. I will encourage you. I will challenge you. I will teach you. I will sit in the shadows with you fearlessly until you no longer fear them.
I will show you love.
It is my honor and privilege to work with you and many others on a path that is filled with love and guidance to wholeness and happiness and a return to your most authentic self.
