About me

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here! The world needs more women to radiate at their full potential! And it sounds like you’re ready to shine again!

 

No more dimming yourself!

So let’s get started!

 

But first you may want to know a little about me and what makes me qualified to help you.

Hi, I’m Tatiana and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Life Coach. I’m also a big, bold woman and I’ve spent much of my life trying to shrink myself to be acceptable.

Just like you, I believed that I was too much: too big, too opinionated, too demanding, too sensitive, etc. This ultimately left me believing that the real me was unlovable.

Just like you, I received societal programming that women need to be agreeable and keep themselves small (both physically and emotionally) to be desired.

Just like you, I received the message that safety and security comes from getting a man.

And, just like you, I learned that men wouldn’t like me as I am. Yikes!

My core beliefs on these things caused me to create the very reality I hated and feared. I hid my big emotions, I people-pleased, and I attracted men with deep insecurities who couldn’t grow with me.

And all of this led to me feeling deep hurt, resentment, and helplessness. Which, in turn, led me to act out in moments when I couldn’t contain my bigness anymore.

I didn’t like myself…so why would anyone else want me?

I finally hit rock bottom towards the end of my marriage. My body gave out on me and I was forced to listen. I couldn’t go on living this way. Luckily, there was still a spark in me that knew I deserved safety, peace, and love.

So I started the work of healing my life. I didn’t realize this until later, but what I was really doing was starting the work of re-scripting my core beliefs.

See, I’ve learned through my own journey, and later through my training as a therapist, that we actually create our own realities based on our core beliefs.

Think about it this way, if I believe that I’m really amazing, I’m going to walk into a room differently. I’m going to command respect just through my energy and presence. And so the world will respond to me accordingly.

But if I believe that I’m taking up too much space, and that the real me is repulsive, I’ll communicate that clearly as well through my actions and energy. And the world will respond with a resounding confirmation of my unworthiness.

Once I started to understand this, EVERYTHING CHANGED!

I learned how to identify each blocking belief as it presented in my life, and then rescript it using some pretty fantastic psychological techniques.

Through the years, I’ve studied and practiced the best ways to do this. I’ve done the work of Louise Hay, Gabby Bernstein, Lacey Phillips with To Be Magnetic, IFS, ego-state and shadow exercises, and I’m trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

The most important thing about all of these approaches is that they create shifts in your subconscious mind, which is the background script that is running the show for each of us.

Through professional training as a licensed counselor, and my personal healing, I’ve mastered the art of identifying blocking core beliefs, rescripting the subconscious mind, and streamlining the healing process.

Today I can honestly say that I love my life! I love and trust myself, and I attract amazing people and events on a daily basis.

And the more I expand into my fullness – my bigness – the better it gets!

Which reminds me, one of the biggest blocks to your happiness is your shadow, especially around being a “big” woman. Anything that we repress actually becomes malignant, causing us harm. But if we can embrace these parts, they can become our greatest strength and make us absolutely magnetic!

Let’s get started!

 

I know you’re ready to shine and be fully loved for who you are! And this work this community can guide you every step of the way!
