I Believe…

I believe in love,

I believe in growth,

I believe in the transformative power of grief.

I think we are all here to make messes and clean them up. I’m interested in our inter-connectedness, our similarities and differences, and the ways we show up. I believe in the freedom we have to choose and the importance of taking responsibility. I believe in our inherent worth. I believe there are gifts in the darkest moments and that we are all deserving of joy.  I believe in accepting our ugly bits, our angry parts and our own lack of grace. I believe in the beauty of the human spirit.  I believe that as each of us step more fully into our own power, and live in greater alignment with our deepest desires, we open the door to the empowerment of others.

Consider everything on this site as me holding the door open, just as it has been held open for me. If it feels right, please take my hand and join me in stepping through.

More details if you want ’em…

In my past I’ve worked as a dancer and actress, a Pilates instructor and a spokesperson for Porsche. I’ve bartended, waited tables, scooped ice cream and sold clothes. I’ve taught kids to dance and choreographed high school musicals. Along the way I got a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and a Master’s degree in clinical and community psychology from Antioch University, Los Angeles. I speak Canadian, American and French.

I’m madly in love with my husband and daughter. I miss my son every day.  After a decade in the intense energy of Los Angeles, I now live and write by the ocean in Ventura, California.

I live for heart-centered connection.

  1. Hey Alana, I love your ‘I believe’ list… a lot of things I think perhaps we share… I have the word ‘choose’ on a necklace to remind myself of my power to find the up in the down.
