Welcome to Courageous Journeys. A journey of discovering who you truly are. ....

…The person underneath the false beliefs of unworthy, unloveable, bad, not good enough, etc. When you’ve been abused as a child you tell yourself a story to try to understand how and why it happened. It is never a story with a princess who is saved by a prince or even a trusted adult. It is a story of somehow being the cause of what happened. Or the reason it continued to happen. It is this story that created the long term effects of abuse (shame, fear, sadness, anger, self-destructive behaviors, relationship problems). In part because you typically aren’t aware of the story you’ve created. This story becomes your reality. Something you believe at your core without even having to think about it. It drives your thinking, behavior, choices.

Courageous Journeys is a Coaching practice & website providing guidance, support, understanding, and most importantly hope. Through the blog, videos, and social media I hope to provide a space for you to feel understood; gain additional understanding of yourself, your feelings, your behaviors; to feel less alone; and to believe in the possibility of a life you may have never imagined. Thank you so much for joining me here.
