After my parents died in my early twenties I spent a long time trying to make sense of life and why things happen the way they do. This involved a lot of traveling, some really good therapy and meeting some amazing people who helped me.
All of those experiences led me to believe that, as Joseph Campbell says, what we are yearning for isn’t the meaning of life, it’s the full and felt experience of living.
There are many things that get in the way of vibrantly and fully experiencing life: Past history, unprocessed emotions, the lack of role models for successfully living life, and cultural baggage, to name a few.
Within my own journey, things began to change when I began to notice and accept my emotions and what was occurring within me without being taken over by it. Working through this gave me the space to actually live life again – which got a lot more fun after meeting my husband. We had a wonderful wedding in New York and a short time later, we had our first child and moved to Spain to be close to family.
I’ve continued my celebrant and therapy work here, and I love celebrating love and marriage, and being available to listen and care when people are effected by profound grief, or dealing with times of pain and setbacks. Whatever your reason for reaching this website I look forward to meeting you and hope I can help in one of these areas.
