Two years ago, I had all of the ingredients for a happy life: A great job as the president of a local nonprofit, a wonderful husband and supportive family, and meaningful engagement in a community that I care about. But on the inside, I was drowning. I constantly felt a sense of stress and heaviness, whether I was at work or not; I was tired all the time and got sick a lot; and when something in my day went wrong, I was overcome with anxiety and often went into panic mode, at least internally. My happiness tended to hinge on how smoothly things went that day, which left me feeling like a plastic bag blowing in the wind, subject to the twists and turns of daily life.
Meditation and Reiki saved me. In January 2016, I began a regular meditation practice and, over time, started to experience a newfound sense of calm, groundedness and clarity. I felt lighter, happier, and better able to handle whatever was thrown my way. Shortly thereafter, I took my first Reiki certification course, which further expanded my understanding of the deep, impenetrable connection between our mind, body & spirit.
In September 2016, I made the decision to leave my nonprofit career and launch Clarity Wellness, with the goal of helping others harness their own thoughts and energy to find happiness, health and peace. I absolutely love what I do, and I look forward to helping you find the joy and balance you've been seeking!
