"Uplyft Your Soul"


What if there were a place, where you can BE exactly who you are...

A place that allows creativity and inspiration to flow through you. Where you feel completely free to express everything that's within you as if you were talking to your best friend. The light, dark, shadows and all the in-betweens. Imagine that this place is all YOURS to absorb the tears, screams, hopes and dreams!

In this in-depth 28 day course we will create a journaling experience that corresponds to different aspects of our lives. Each week we will focus on one aspect as we get deeply serious with ourselves and learn more about our truest desires. We want to spark love, abundance, and clarity through creating a journaling ritual that suits your lifestyle and co-creates the life you want to experience.

I’ll offer you my own natural and authentic version to journaling that consists of writing in a Creativity & Passion Journal and Instagram posts. By the end of the course you’ll have a deeper understanding of yourself, feel more passionate and inspired to move forward with courage, and a stronger sense of self love. This may spark a continuation into more intuitive journaling practices, such as my 12 week Intuitive Journaling Course.

"I’ve built a stronger mental, emotional and spiritual foundation through journaling and rituals that remind me of my authentic nature of wholeness, gentleness and abundance."

My Path to Journaling

Before Facebook and Instagram, I kept a sweet journal to express myself and gather the details of my dark and gloomy days along with my days of pure excitement and elation. I began journaling in middle school with friends. We had a shared journal that we would pass around throughout the day and all of us would write to each other and just blab about what was going on in our lives.

I use journals to express the darkness that builds within, the anger, frustration and depression can take hold of my life. When the pen touches the paper, all of my emotions release and a beautiful story is written. I’ve been journaling for 16 years to express my true, authentic self by finding peace in being alone and loving myself. Going to my safe space where there aren’t any judgments, stressors or expectations to let go of debilitating grief and fear, while also allowing my creativity to spill onto the paper with ideas, art and doodles.
