A car accident after college that resulted in temporary paralysis and a traumatic brain injury changed the course of my life. After three years of intense therapies to regain the ability to walk, talk, read and write again, I embarked on a series of trainings and certifications that have allowed me to share with others what I learned through my trauma experience about transforming loss and pain into abundance and gratitude. In addition to being a HeartMath Resilience Advantage™ Workshop Trainer and Coach Mentor, I an trained in: grief support; suicide prevention, forgiveness facilitation; Franciscan studies; global trauma healing methods; mindfulness and mindfulness-based stress reduction. Since 2002, I have presented over 500+ workshops, talks and programs on over 100 subjects at a wide variety of universities, small and large businesses, churches, healthcare facilities, spiritual retreat and wellness centers, and more. My work has led me to work extensively with cancer patients and survivors; people dealing with issues of of loss due to death, divorce, illness and chronic pain; people with trauma and PTSD related issues; adults age 60+; children of all ages; life-long learners; and more. I love helping to facilitate "AHA!" moments with private clients, groups and audiences; helping people realize that they can feel at home within their own bodies and at home and connected to others, the world and the God of their hearts makes my heart sing with joy.
How I use the HeartMath System
In my work life, I use the HeartMath System in group setting and with individual clients, whenever and wherever I see a need for training in resilience-building (for example: workshops for caregivers, one-to-one and group meetings with cancer patients, people dealing with grief etc.). In my mind HeartMath tools can be the first in the process of "preparing to make a change". I personally use HeartMath tools and techniques daily to be coherent as I start my day (Heart Lock-In!), to prep prior to challenging situations (Quick Coherence!), to communicate effectively (Coherent Communication!), when there is a pause in my day (Heart-Focused Breathing!), when something temporarily "throws me off my game" (Attitude Breathing!), or whenever I just feel a need for a heart-centered pick-me-up!
