Be Seen, Be Heard, and Reclaim Your Inner Worth

What inspired you to go on this path of becoming a spiritual therapist? 

It chose me. I listened to the inner voice and feeling inside looking for how I could help other people. I was drawn to look at the injustices of life. I wanted to understand suffering. I’d make my mom stop to ask homeless people where their mom and dad was. I was like a baby therapist. I kept following that voice until I became a therapist and did my part in helping suffering.

What is Diosa, and what is your book about?

Diosa is the Spanish word for goddess. On the journey to healing myself and owning my divinity as Diosa, I discovered missing pieces in my past. It was a combination of ancient wisdom and therapy. I share my process and the learning when we discover we are the Diosa. We unpack our stories and do so in a non-judgmental way. 

What’s your definition of trauma?

We all have varying levels of trauma. It could be having an over perfectionist mother who created high expectations for you. It could create high expectations of perfectionism for you. It could also be verbal, or emotional abuse. It’s any event that removes us from safety and security. 

How do you give yourself the love you didn’t get as a child?

Observe your story. Honor your pain. Give love to the parts of us that didn’t get love. Write out the moments in your life when you didn’t have love. It might be tucked away in a secret closet. Bring it to light. Develop a language and dialogue to travel back in time. Imagine a moment when something occurred that disconnected you from your self esteem. Go back in meditation or visualization and speak to that wounded child or teenager. Say what you wish you had heard, that this had nothing to do with you. It had to do with the other person’s issues. There might still be pain points, but we can reduce the volume.

What advice do you have for someone who wants to go on their last first date?

They are not choosing you, you are choosing them. Date like a Diosa. Remember what you want, and see dating as a fun game. We often worry about being accepted and chosen. Be in the driver’s seat instead.
