Hey, there! My name is Emily and I’m a therapist turned holistic health coach, podcaster, and blogger. This has been my online home for the last 10 years, and even though the content has undergone some pretty major transformations, a few things have remained the same: my focus on the bigger picture of wellness, a love for writing, and becoming the best version of myself possible.
I’m a big fan of meditation and yoga. I think it’s safe to say that both have changed my life for the better. Same goes for creative expression and art. My current focus has been on faces and florals (gotta love a good alliteration). Check out my main Instagram feed for more!
I am always on the lookout for synchronicities, repeating numbers, and small signs from the Universe. Which is seriously cool, by the way, because it helps me (well, US) know that I’m in the exact right place at the exact right time.
I’m also a firm believer that every experience we have — even the ones that we deem to be negative — can teach us something if we let it. I’ve taken that approach to food intolerances, infertility and miscarriage, as well as career and major life transitions.
I am also strangely passionate about the topic of self-care and how it’s bigger and more important than we’ve been led to believe.
I also believe in magic.
Not the kind of magic that is based on illusions and sleight of hand. The kind of magic that turns what we have into enough, transforms the everyday into something monumental and beautiful, and connects us to the world in the most perfect of ways.
This is the kind of magic that I know first-hand and has guided my life for as long as I can remember.
It has been present while pursuing a career in psychology and social work, and then, on a whim, moving into the world of employee assistance work. It was there when I first met my husband at the age of 14 and also when we reconnected at age 26.
It was there was I left my 9-5 to sell handcrafted books and when I started an organization for women entrepreneurs with someone I’d met on the internet. It was also there when I was diagnosed with food intolerances and subsequently became a certified holistic health coach.
It was most definitely there when I started a podcast (and then another). And it has also been there every single time I have wiped the slate clean and started over from the beginning.
I like to think of life as an up-spiral.
Why an up-spiral? Because even though it can often feel like I’m right back to square one, I know I’m not because of everything I’ve learned and everyone I’ve met along the way.
I have connected with the most incredible people. I’ve discovered (and fallen in love with) yoga, meditation, tarot and oracle cards, and gratitude. I’ve delved deep with podcasting. I have found the most amazing books at the exact right time in my life. And have taken with me a magnificent web of skills and interests.
The blog and the podcast are both a reflection of that exploration, learning, and understanding.
So, uh… what exactly do you write (and talk) about then?
As of now, these are my favorite topics to explore and learn more about:
- Personal Growth
I’m sure there will be more added to the list, but that should give you a sense of what this space is (and I am) all about.
PS—Let’s connect online. My favorite place to hang out these days is over on Instagram.
