I am a 37 year old stay at home mom of 2 adopted kids ages 8 and 9. I really struggle with exercising and eating healthy and am hoping to find inspiration and motivation here.

I finally got my pictures up. My family includes my partner, Diane, Me, Tatyana, and Kayla. David was a part of our family for awhile and we were going to adopt him, but it didn't work out. We still consider him a part of our family and hearts.

I have a Master's degree in counseling. I am in the practitioners prgram in The Journey and hope to finish that soon. I love to travel and we are going on a disney cruise in Sept. as well as spending a week at the beach.

both of my kids have special needs and somedays it is very overwhelming. But they are great kids and so far, we have made it through each day.

Personal Information:
I'm making some profound shifts in my life right now that are creating one opportunity after another I feel rich. No in the money since, but a full of life richness. What is odd is that I can feel that and feel depression simulateously or intermittenly. But perhaps, with practice that will get better and better. I am a walkling experiment on myself right now, trying everything, supplements, accupuncture, traditional meds, meditation, exercise, the journey process, and teachings from varios things like the secret or fearess living.

Other Information:
I am studying to be a journey practitioner. You can look at the program on It is the most fabulous thing I can thing of and it deals with the whole person on an emotional, physical, and spiritual level. I am excited to be doing my internship and all are welcome to experience this process for free via the phone during my internship stage. Everone I have worked with sings its praises. As I also do. So let me know if you are interested in doing a session or more than one session. No gimmicks. No commitment. And I won't feel bad if you tell me that you hated it. I need to know those things to.
