Tips for creating boundaries and opening up to love

My recent Goddess event was all about helping women create affirmations that would allow them to pour back into themselves.

Yes, I Still Train People! LOL!

Thoughts on Nipsey Hussle

“Most important thing is to get rid of doubt. If you got doubt in what you’re doing it’s not gonna work.” – Nipsey Hussle 😥😥 I posted this on Facebook a few days ago with this profile picture of the rapper in his prime. Although I’m definitely super emotional from supporting the birth of my …

I love meeting new people! Especially all of my doula clients. One of my current clients is Senegalese and, through her, I learned about a naming ceremony that is very unique. In her culture, they don’t pick a name until a week after the baby is born. The father picks a name and then he …
