My inspiration to become an Esthetician stemmed from my passion for the art of beauty as well as healing the soul. I was inspired to bring them together into a career that I could truly visualize and enjoy.
Growing up, a connection to something greater and more profound always came naturally to me. My dreams were beautifully vivid and I could sense events that were about to happen. At a young age this was sometimes challenging to comprehend.
Throughout my childhood, I experienced various illnesses. Sometimes my sickness was explained, and at other times it was not. Self care for myself was a priority. In addition, healing others also helped me manage the anguish that I was dealing with at that time. Entering my teens, I began caring for the elderly at a nursing home. Being in their presence and helping them transition to the other side almost felt natural to me. As if I had done this before. In my spare time I would create beauty rituals to do on myself or loved ones. This was based solely off intuition. I used mostly every single product my mom had in her vanity. The interesting part about this time of my life is my intuitive abilities were heightened and so were some of my health issues. I knew I had a calling and the more I ignored it, the stronger it would become.
Taking the path to become an esthetician, I knew I did not want to be the conventional beauty therapist. Although I spent the first half of my career in traditional esthetics working in conventional spas & dermatology practices. Something just didn’t feel right. I felt a stronger pull to offer more integrative holistic based treatments. An experience where I could truly connect with another. All while still providing clinical results. I wanted to give hope and reassurance to those who suffered from stress disorders. Experiencing countless skin issues myself, I know how deeply transformative it can be to release any limiting beliefs one may have of themselves. I created an intention to help people feel beautiful and confident in a way that went against all of society’s standards. I wanted to help people embrace their own intuitive gifts. Gentle touch and being present with others can offer alignment within our soul’s journey. Our skin and our bodies can heal in miraculous ways. Mentally, physically and spiritually.
With 14 years’ experience, I have found that like a mirror, skin not only reflects the unique nature of an individual but sometimes the emotional and physical imbalance beneath the mask. I have worked with all kinds of people ranging from teenagers to women suffering from appearence related side effects due to chemotherapy and aggressive procedures. Most recently, I have worked closely with hospice patients offering gentle aromatherapy treatments. This ongoing journey and experience in holistic measures has led me to teach and guide my clients to a more sustainable and healthy way of living. My goal is not only to build a relationship with you, but to give you the tools and resources that best fit your lifestyle and skincare goals. I believe in applying a full body approach for the deepest relaxation and balanced treatment. Whether you are just beginning your skincare & wellness journey, or if you have experience with a range of products and spa services, nine to nourish will always be a safe haven to be unapologetically you.
