Welcome! Please, come in.

Set your fears and uncertainties aside, open your heart, and join me on this journey of deep, soul healing.

Courageous Journeys is a journey of coming back to you. To the essence of who you are… who you’ve always been.

The journey of discovering the freedom your soul has been asking for. You know, that little voice that sends a desire… the feeling of hope into your heart that ultimately led you here. Those moments when you find yourself struggling yet recognize there has to be more.

Those are the whispers of your soul.

Imagine…  No more self-doubt, self-sabotaging, unhealthy/unfulfilling relationships, or shame.

Instead…  Feeling connected, understood, capable, worthy, loved, whole… and free.  

Your soul is asking. Are you listening?

Take a moment... take a deep breath... open to the possibility


The most damaging aspect of childhood trauma is the shame we carry throughout our lives.

Shame that's kept you living a life that is far smaller than you are deserving and capable of…and meant for.

For some people this shows up in obvious ways. Depression, abusive relationships, suicidal thoughts and actions, addiction, flashbacks, etc.

For many others, it shows up as being overly independent or confident, intense reactions or completely shut off emotions, difficulty letting people see, know the “real” you, or no matter what you achieve or have in your life you still feel like something’s missing…a knowing, a deep desire for more.

Wherever you see yourself, I would be honored to take part in your journey of discovering who you truly are under the layers of self-protection and buried pain.

 I wanted to write a quick lil love note to you to thank you deeply and express my gratitude for you. After our call the other day, I allowed myself to process, cry, share with my honey and your guidance was exactly what I needed. My tell tale sign there was shifting happening was because the next day my stomach stopped hurting. It's gone. And although I'm still sensitive about it, I feel like we opened a window for the sun to shine in. Thank you so much!! I'm so grateful for you in my life!!

 Thank You, Peggy!! You are AMAZING. I’m 55, saw numerous counselors and read various self-help books. Not one unearthed or meaningfully addressed this issue. You have an unusual ability to grasp the core dynamics and present the solutions in a simple, accurate and hopeful way. It sounds simple, but in my experience, it's incredibly uncommon. I wish that every therapist were required to study the wisdom you so generously share. They would be far more effective at unearthing abuse and guiding us out of the damaging coping mechanisms of denial, avoidance, minimization, and rationalization. Thank you for the gift you’ve given.
