It All Began When I Said "No."
I haven't always been on this self-development journey. I spent years and years, degrading my physical, mental and emotional health, with restrictive diets, negative thoughts, toxic relationships and stuck in a life that I didn't want... I haven't always been in great shape... But right now, by practicing what I preach, I feel fantastic.
It all began when I said "no". When I looked at myself and realized that I wanted and needed help.
I always thought I was a shy and insecure girl. Because that was all I heard others say about me. My life was based on fear: fear of not succeeding, fear of criticism, fear of judgments, fear of not being liked by others, fear of not being beautiful, fear of disappointing someone. This lack of love and self-awareness, made me fall into the vicious cycle of eating disorders - bulimia and binge eating - that led me to develop irritable bowel syndrome.
My superpower is helping women become the best version of themselves while pursuing the kind of life they actually want.... one with abundance, freedom, joy, and peace.
I dedicated more than 3 years to undressing the layers that society had placed on me, to heal traumas, to understand my emotions, to know how to deal with my thoughts and to really understand who I was and what I wanted to do. I ended up graduating as a Health Coach and doing several training courses focused on personal development and holistic nutrition.
I now believe that we are the creators of our reality and that the secret of life is to find balance (AND EAT A LOOOOT OF PLANTS!!!). I use appreciation as the quickest way to let go of control and attract more into my life and manifest all my desires. I dedicate my days helping women overcome their obsession with their body image (we are all more than our physical body) and feel joyful, inspired, purposeful and empowered.
Balance. Allow me to introduce you to one of my secret weapons - balance. I'm obsessed with finding the right equilibrium to everything I do.
Gossip or judgmental talk, drinks, long emails/texts/meetings, and not sharing the truth.
