About Me

 

Hi! My name is Rebecca, and I'm a chiropractor and small business owner living in Des Moines, Iowa.

Throughout my whole entire life, I can remember I felt different from the other kids. I was more sensitive. I felt more deeply, and expressed my emotions more outwardly. 

I've had a history of mental illness. I have struggled in the past with depression, and anxiety. I also feel like I have successfully have found peace. I’m here because I feel it’s important to start opening a dialogue of how combating mental illness has helped make us stronger.

I think it's important for people to understand that just because you struggle with mental illness, that doesn't make you weak. It makes you stronger. I've figured out to manage my anxiety, and I want others to know they can, too.

I'm a successful small business owner, who encountered anxiety & depression on a regular basis in chiropractic school, and in starting my business.

It's my passion, and my goal to educate others that you can get your mental illness in check while fulfilling your calling, and achieving your dreams. You can truly find what sparks joy within. You are worthy enough to take charge of your health overall, and maintain happiness and peace.

I truly believe that it's important to embrace all emotions on the spectrum, and know how to be conscious of those emotions. When we become conscious of our emotional spectrum, we can use those emotions to help us drive change into our lives.

We can live a purposeful life, the life of our dreams if we honor our emotions in a healthy way, and listen to what they are telling us. They can drive us positively to serve only our highest good if we let them.

 
 

The essential lesson I’ve learned in life is to just be yourself. Treasure the magnificent being that you are and recognize first and foremost you’re not here as a human being only. You’re a spiritual being having a human experience.
