What is behind the name, Embrace Her...? Over the course of nine years, my business has had three names; two years ago I revealed the newest name. Embrace Her was inspired largely by my own personal journey and the shifts that had been happening organically with my clients over time.
Embrace Her is all about learning to EMBRACE OURSELVES as whole and complete women. In simplest terms, it's about embodying self-love.
Among the hardest things I've had to do in this lifetime, aside from learning what it really means to love others, is to learn to let others love me, and learn to love myself, too. This has been challenging because for much of my life I have believed myself to be fundamentally unlovable.

There is a HUGE difference between "self-improvement" (trying to "fix" ourselves) and opting for personal growth and self-healing.

Ladies..., our opportunity is to shift our internal self-talk, tune out the harmful external messages and other people's expectations, and come to know that we are worthy of love and acceptance, just as we are - even WITH our blemishes, imperfections, and mistakes.
My purposes in life and with Embrace Her are to:
