Get Clarity with Tonya

Everyone is so unique and beautiful as they walk through their own journey.

Love and support are huge components on how those journeys manifest. How we are loved and how we love ourselves unravels the paths we take. We, the creators of our lives, open the door to the support we need to achieve goals and dreams. My life’s purpose is to assist those walking through change and evolution. My strong intuition strengthens my qualities as a coach by giving me a sense of what questions to ask or a deeper understanding of what the client is experiencing at the time. As my own journey unfolded, I developed my skills as a healer, teacher, and coach through immersing myself in many avenues of self-development to understand my own life and better serve those I work with.

My process to become an intuitive life coach began long before I even thought about coaching in general. I have always known that I wanted to help people work through their challenges.

I wanted to go into psychology in high school after experiencing an eye opening awareness to child abuse first hand through volunteering in a daycare for children suffering from abuse. Just before graduating HS I had an AH HA moment that brought me back to my early childhood dream of becoming a stylist. Through the beauty industry, I was able to fulfill both of my passions of making people feel better about themselves while providing space for them to be heard and sharing awareness.

From the time I was 5, I played “hair lady” and when asked what I wanted to be when I grow up, I would reply with a smile, “a beautician.”  My psychic abilities presented themselves while working at a spa in West LA, when I had my first eye opening occurrence happen. While admiring a clients beautiful ring, a birth date came to me clear as day. I told my client and she said, “That’s my birthday!” This type of information flashes through my mind like watching a television show. That first flash of intuition inspired me to start helping people through spiritual insight. I believe that “psychic hit” acted as a catalyst to further evolve my natural skills through meditation and energy work.

As part of my own evolution, came serious unexpected life changes. I became very ill with an autoimmune disease that forced me to look at things from a raw and deep level. Why do I do the things I do, why do I need to control and stress? Why am I so afraid of my other natural gifts and talents? Through the weakness of the illness, my intuition and spiritual connection soared. My physical body was wreckage and traditional medicine was failing me. I began to seek alternative healing modalities like Shamanic journeys, Ayurvedic coaching, DNA recalibrating, and traditional Chinese medicine. I was forced to get to the roots of this illness in order to eventually go into remission.  Through all of these modalities including talk therapy and life coaching, I was able to unravel the many things that were creating this lack of control in my physical body. There was not just one thing that I could say that allowed my body to regain it’s strength and vitality but the culmination of my determination, my purpose in this life, and the healing I continue to create. The healing is not just around my physical body but my mindset and patterns as well. This is something that continues to unfold and I believe will assist with my soul’s evolution.

Through my work as an intuitive, I felt that people are looking for answers but not having the skills or support to fulfill the wisdom from spirit. This is what brought me to become a coach. As my own evolution continued, I was seeking another source of coaching to better my own practice. This is when divine intervention stepped in to bring Dharma Express Coaching into my life at the perfect time. The Dharma process has been fulfilling and challenging at the same time. It brought forward a beautiful foundation and process to help many evolve and grow. My own personal growth through the process brought up my deep rooted beliefs and patterning front and center from time management to self-doubt and judgment. The process brought light to what I was ready to work on and gave direct tools to transform that which is no longer serving me. This process has changed me forever, resulting in a better version of the healer, teacher, and coach I am today.
