The human heart is a remarkable organ. It’s not just a biological pump, but a repository of emotions, experiences, and resilience. It has the incredible capacity to break, to absorb moments of joy and hope, as well as sorrow and change, and yet, it continues to beat, guiding us through the intricate journey of our own lives. My heart, like many of you, has experienced heartbreak, heartache, and the thick fog that surrounds loss. And yet, it still beats, but maybe with a different rhythm.

I lost my precious father a few months ago—but my mind says it was much longer and just yesterday. I am battling the ongoing struggle of feeling helpless to lift the palpable grief of my mother. Through it all, I am watching my courageous sister begin another round of aggressive chemotherapy in the hopes of extending her time to enjoy this incredible life.

Through all of this, I am changed.

This reality is becoming more apparent.

But amidst the chaos and heartache, there are moments of clarity. It’s as if the rhythm of my heart, though altered, aligns more clearly with the path of my fragile, beautiful life.

Life transforms us, sometimes gently and at other times with a force we cannot ignore. However, our control, our power, lies in our awareness.

Becoming aware of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors is like shining a light into the recesses of our unconscious. It allows us to understand the intricate workings of our minds and hearts, to bring to the surface what was once hidden. This newfound awareness becomes the compass by which we navigate the uncertain terrain of our lives.

Now, this brings me to why I am sharing all of this with you.

As many of you know, I am a clinical health psychologist, and over the past thirty-four years, I have witnessed the incredible transformation that can occur when women reclaim their unique power and change their lives and the lives of others. I have also seen how unresolved trauma, anxiety, and self-doubt can keep women stuck –never really living a fulfilled life.

We squander precious moments worrying about trivialities and indulging in the “what ifs” that lead us astray. Life is a fragile and transient journey; let’s treat it carefully.

Maybe because of the clarity that has come out of the struggles or maybe because I realize that this world needs empowered women now more than ever; I’m not sure, but I know that I feel a sense of urgency.

Humanity needs the unique skills that a collective and unified group of women can bring to make this world a better place. There is no more time to waste hiding, doubting, pretending, and living the life that is not meant for us.

The urgency rises with the recognition that we need each other in profound and unified ways.

I remain committed to doing this work because I don’t want to see you get to the end of your life and realize you have more to give, receive, and do…but fear and self-doubt held you back.

I don’t want another woman to waste any more time on self-doubt, feeling inadequate, or questioning her worth. The world needs authentic women willing and able to show up with the unique gifts they bring to all of us. Women’s empowerment is not just a slogan; it’s a call to action, a commitment to nurturing the strength and resilience that lies within every woman.

 In conversations with women over the past few years, it has become clear that it is time to take the healing and supportive work out of my office and bring it to a larger group of women in an affordable and flexible format. So, I am creating an online private community for women to learn, engage in honest conversations, and support each other on the journey of authentic, successful living.

The REAL Women’s Collective™ REAL (Reclaiming Empowerment for Authentic Living) community is more than just a program; it’s a mission. It’s a culmination of my why, my unwavering dedication to women, and my belief in our innate power to overcome adversity and actively live this beautiful life.

Reflecting on the journey that brought me here, I’m clear about my purpose. It’s a purpose rooted in empathy, tenderness, and a deep understanding of the human heart’s capacity to break and mend, to absorb the full spectrum of human experiences, and to keep beating, guiding us toward a brighter future.

 In the end, our hearts are not fragile but resilient. We are not meant to simply survive; we are| meant to thrive and inspire. My heart, your heart, and the hearts of women everywhere beat with a rhythm of strength and purpose, and if we pause and listen—really listen- it reminds us that we are enough. We know it at our core, and once we remove the noise of voices that are not ours, we can hear and reclaim our own voices.

Is joining our Private REAL Women’s Collective™ right for you?  A membership program for women who are stepping out of self-doubt and learning to embrace their authentic voices, express their truth, and ultimately empower themselves and others in the process. The authenticy journey is holistic. As a clinical health psychologist, I know that we are never fully healed  and empowered  when we are disconnected.

I have integrated my decades of professional and personal experience with science and created a program that offers a step-by-step approach with actionable opportunities for practicing and engaging within the community and with me.
