you can be a heart advocate

I want to be your safe-space. In 2015, I decided to no longer settle for less than I desired personally or professionally, and now I am here for your heart, not the bullshit.

By facing our fear, self-doubt, insecurity, guilt, and shame/blame with the 10 Branches of Self-love (Path of Self-love), I believe that every woman can have body acceptance, happiness, wellness and inner-peace.

I provide Heart Advocate Programs, self-love therapy, self-love workshops and run a virtual support group to give women the tools to make Self-love a priority, focus on Healing Over Everything (toxic relationships, loneliness, trauma, fear, depression, doubt, etc.), and to understand their mental health.

I am dedicated to taking self-love with me everywhere I go, so if I am present, This is a judgement free zone that only seeks to unite women from all different paths; cisgender, transgender, lesbian, bi-sexual or heterosexual; no matter the race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, religion, age, or disability, all women + femme are welcome.

What is a Heart Advocate

We all have personal + professional desires and our relationship with others and ourselves impacts the moves we make. Often times, we ignore the desires of our hearts for fear of disappointing others, a lack of self-worth, or doubting our abilities. As The Heart Advocate™ I am dedicated to helping every woman + femme (transgender women, non-binary, non-gender femme/queer) defy fear, self-doubt, insecurity, shame/blame, and guilt by advocating for their heart + souls desire.

There are 3 things that make you a Heart Advocate:

  1. Never settling for less than you desire personally or professionally
  2. Manifesting + Maintaining only loving and respectful relationships in your life
  3. Doing what you desire even if that means disappointing others (adapted from the Path of Self-love

Our Heart Advocate™ programs + self-love therapy, groups, and workshops provide an array of resources on self-love, mental health, and healing. We want to help you listen to your heart and do exactly what you desire every day.

You will be provided with support as we navigate through each branch of self-love. Self-love is not selfish, it is a requirement in wellness + mental health. By making our heart and soul desires priority you will change what you allow in relationships, how you parent, how you communicate in relationships, how you see your mental health, and your health + wellness.

You can break down the walls of fear, self-doubt, self-hate, and insecurity with the 10 branches of self-love, including self-awareness, self-care, self-trust, self-acceptance, and self-forgiveness and I want to connect with you.

Self-love is something that we choose every damn day and you are worthy.

Healing Over Everything (H.O.E.)

About h.o.e.

Healing Over Everything is a support group on Facebook that provides women + femme with weekly woman-talk on different topics related to self-love, mental health and healing. We are conversation starters who want to face our pain, celebrate ourselves and have a safe-space to vent and be transparent.

Social media is the stumping ground for comparison, perfectionism, and toxic self-hate, so I developed this group to provide women with a safe-space. If you don’t truly love yourself, flaws and all, you will constantly attract unhealthy relationships, and that includes social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. H.O.E. supports women by providing self-love tips, focusing on Healing Over Everything™, and empowering them to be advocates for their hearts.

We are defying perfectionism, self-hate, and the word “HO” every single day. 

This group was created because I realized that no matter the status of a woman; her socioeconomic status, age, race + ethnicity, culture, religion, sexual preference, sexual orientation, or sexual identity we have all been called a ‘ho.’ We are defying the word to mean Healing Over Everything™ and using it to empower, challenge, and support women all over the world.

WHo can join H.O.E.?

You may be wondering, how did I allow myself to stay in this toxic relationship for so long? Why am I still struggling to love my body? Why do I let people walk all over me? How will I ever have healthy relationships in my life? Is there something wrong with me? We have all asked some version of these questions in our journey and the answer is a lack of self-love. Don’t beat yourself up, the reality is we are taught how to take care of others, not necessarily how to take care of ourselves.

If you are struggling with maintaining healthy relationships, have concerns with family + friends, struggling in your marriage or as a parent; if you need support with grief or loss, during  or after a divorce or a bad breakup; if you are struggling with accepting your body or trusting your heart in making decisions, I am here to say that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

this group is here for the heart of every woman.

H.O.E. is for WOMEN + FEMME ONLY, ages 18+ who are high school teens, college girls, heterosexual + lesbian women, cis-gender + transgender women, married women, and every mother who wants to heal over the choices of their past. Women united is the most powerful force in nature and H.O.E. is dedicated to providing a safe-space for women heal and help others heal from toxic relationships, trauma, abuse, loneliness, divorce and our every day life experiences as women living in a male dominated society. 

How to Join H.O.E.?

With 1K members, H.O.E. is making its mark as a group that is “the only reason I am on Facebook.” – Gloria Madelyn (member).
