My Story

love 4.jpg

Where it all started? Here is an honest reflection on my journey. 

As a child, I loved dancing in front of the mirror, which led my parents to enroll me in ballet. But as I grew and my body changed, I struggled with low self-esteem, body image issues, and an eating disorder due to societal pressures. 

I have experienced mental, physical and sexual violence during my early years, making me feel never good enough or capable of anything, yet being perfectionist and overachieving to prove that I am worthy of love. 

Despite an innate passion for holistic well-being, I initially pursued a career in economics, as I thought a way to secure my life. Working in the business field, my weekends were marked by partying, alcohol and substance use.

After a difficult breakup in 2016, there was a turning point in my life when I started questioning why certain things happen to me. I started my healing journey through different modalities: theta healing, family constellation, past live regression, rebirthing and I discovered yoga, meditation and gong sound healing. 

Relocating to Berlin in 2018, I continued a dissatisfying 9-5 routine. I know I wasn't happy, yet I did not believe in myself enough to change. I felt safe and comfortable, but I recognized the toll my unhappiness was taking on my health. I realized that every physical symptom has an emotional background and I learnt about the connection between body-mind-spirit.

After a transformative solo trip, I summoned the courage to leave my secure job and pursue a healthier, more fulfilling life. Enrolling in Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I deepened my knowledge about holistic healing, while continuously improving my skills as a sound meditation and gong artist. Meanwhile my dream to become a photographer also manifested itself effortlessly.

I got introduced to plant-medicines, which were supporting my on-going self-inquiry and healing on a deep level. I was slowly peeling off the layers of my own conditioning and limiting beliefs, which I carried long from my childhood. The more I went deeper, the lighter life got through acceptance, forgiveness and love. 

I jumped on a train to support retreats as a holistic chef and placeholder, which made my path and dharma clearer. 

Currently I am studying Compassionate Inquiry, a psychotherapeutic approach for trauma healing and deepening my knowledge about psychedelics and integration to be best in service for others. 

Gratitude fills me for the connections, mentors, and experiences that shaped my journey. Believing that healing is a continuous process of growth and self-discovery, I acknowledge the importance of listening to my inner voice.

I am here to inspire you to connect to your inner wisdom, to activate your self-healing process and to walk you home - to yourself.
