Hi – I’m Andrea. 👋
Beyond who I am through the lens of what I do day to day, I am a self healer. I am wholly committed to the work we are here to do: heal ourselves and work towards achieving some degree of balance in our lives and in the world.
I affirm this while acknowledging that a state of balance is not something we will ever achieve. Rather, we are here to seek it, and learn valuable lessons along the way.
I am a realist, yet thoroughly optimistic.
I believe in the power of our beliefs and visualizing how we want to feel, while honouring the need for a game plan for responding to the pain that speaks through us and others, so we don’t perpetuate cycles of abuse.
I know the power of understanding we carry trauma in our cells, and sometimes (usually at inopportune moments) it comes to the surface, asking to be alchemized through the act of witnessing it. And it doesn’t look or feel cute.
I also know the power of realizing this:
We weren’t born to look cute! We were born to heal what our ancestors weren’t capable of healing. 💗
Because of that knowing, I am driven to inspire people to forgo filtering the reality of their experiences, and witness the truth of what is and isn’t working in their lives. Particularly within the context of their relationship with themselves and others.
As a creative with an analytical edge, I spends my days researching astrology and holistic wellness techniques while offering intuitive readings and astrological readings to my growing list of clients.
Delving into what cannot be explained about the human experience in an easily observable and digestible way fuels me, and I incorporate what I learn through my deep dives into the readings I offer and my creative life.
If you were to visit my home, you’d find plenty of scripts lying around. I train as an actor, auditioning for and working on film projects in and around the Victoria, Vancouver Island & Vancouver BC area.
As a writer, I dabble in a few areas. I am a poet – you can read a small sampling of my poetry here. Over the years my words in both essay and poetry form have been featured on the Huffington Post, in literary magazines, on various wellness websites, and in the book, Just Words Volume One, an anthology of Canadian writers. I also really enjoy putting my analytical abilities and communications training to use as a content consultant, helping entrepreneurs create empowering messaging for their brand.
That’s a little bit about me. Thanks for reading and visiting. 🥰 I’m glad you’re here. If anything I’ve shared resonates, reach out. I’d love to hear from you.
