Tina lives in Alexandria, Virginia with her husband and their two children. Tina has always had a fascination with the moon. After studying the phases of the moon in astronomy classes and the astrological impact it can have on personal transformation, she began to explore the spiritual connections that the moon has brought to many cultures over thousands of years. No matter where we are in the world, we can see the moon. Its something that we all have in common.

The moon has brought great comfort to her life, particularly during a time when she felt a loss of personal identity. This was during her first two years of becoming a mother a time of joy, but a time of anxiety, depression and confusion. She was a mother, but who was she really? She took many walks during that time, gazing at the moon and trying to make sense of who she was and what purpose her life served.

Taking the knowledge she had of the moon and its place in spiritual transformation, she combined it with her training as a life purpose coach and a journaling workshop facilitator. Together, this combination created a path of self-discovery for her a path that she wants to share with the many mothers who feel a loss of personal identity.
