Let Me Share A Little About Myself
Healing happens from the inside out.
Hi, I’m Cherie.
As an Energy Practitioner and Mindfulness Coach, I utilize my unique blend of skills to guide women through times of deep healing and transition.
I have been coaching (inadvertently) for a long time.
In the late 70s, I started my career as a hairstylist then, in the 90s, became the salon owner.
This all took a backseat to the momentous responsibility that I felt by becoming the sole guardian of two magical creatures — my daughters.
All of these emotions came to play.
I am from a home where my example for integrity… for love… for the example and model of parenting came from the outside. Within my nest, I was captive. My life was spent looking over my shoulder in fear; my trust in myself was shattered; and my reality was twisted, so that others could feel comfortable.
I had forgotten my Truth.
I couldn’t remember.
I only remembered the flashes of Fear and Pain.
My body became accustomed to the inflammation. It reacted to the trapped heat that was the fuel for my hidden rage. This heat was my long-forgotten betrayal; and my fear of everything and everyone. It tried everything to get my attention by waving flags like fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, chronic fatigue, migraines…
I spent years in therapy, and I learned how to "function".
I lived each day in 30-minute increments.
"Can I get through this one more haircut?"
My thoughts could travel no farther than the false comfort I had about tucking me and my children in safely at the end of each day.
I finally fell into the hands of a psychiatrist who immediately began detoxing me from the countless medications I was taking. He listened and, for the first time, I felt seen. He helped me think through some of my reactions. He helped me understand how I was struggling with PTSD. He also noticed how I had spoke; how I analyzed my life. I had done the work, yet it was if from behind the scenes, my life was still derailing and sabotaging me.
"Cherie, why are you here? You could be sitting in my seat?", he commented one day.
He then said, "You have been an incredible observer. You have all of the right facial expressions. You laugh when it is appropriate. You appropriately play the part when people are looking, but you are not in there. I have done all that I can to help you"
Then something clicked.
I thought, "I have to get this out of my body, so I can fit back in."
I wanted to feel life.
I wanted to feel touch.
I wanted to know Joy… and love.
So, I began to look elsewhere… outside of what was traditional. I learned ways to heal myself then I got out.
I traveled the country; following and learning from the amazing minds of Deepak Chopra and the late David Simon. Through their curriculum, I was exposed to some of the greatest thinkers on the planet – physicists and quantum physicists who gave me insight into the reality of healing — something solid to focus upon. I was exposed to a new AND different way of thinking!
I now live a life free of chronic pain and the dozen prescriptions.
My body is healthy and my life is in constant motion. As the tangles fall away, each day I have a growing view of what life is like free of the burden of the past. I understand what forgiveness means and more importantly what it feels like to forgive.
With my eyes open and the road clear, it has become important for me to give back.
My passion around helping kids led me back to mom. It doesn’t matter how much you do for the child if they go back home to the cycles and patterns that got them there in the first place.
“If you want to test the strength of a nation, test the strength of its women!”
I came to realize that by supporting mom as she heals, everyone benefits. Through metaphysical and spiritually based techniques, I guide Mom out of overwhelm and into the realization of her power over creation.We both know that you want freedom from the influences of the past. You want your life to reflect your wants and desires. You want more than anything for your children to begin their lives with their feet on the ground.
The coolest part of it all is when Mom is happy healthy and strong, everybody is happy healthy and strong!
Now, that I have untangled MY story... allow me to help you with doing the same.
