A bit about Lenora's journey:
Lenora's childhood was forged through years of domestic trauma and sexual abuse. These unhealthy relationship patterns continued to cloud her early adulthood leading to additional years of domestic, vocational, and spiritual trauma. Consequently, Lenora spent the majority of 20's exploring a variety of spiritual paths and counseling modalities to find a sense of wholeness and healing.
Thankfully, through the integration of cognitive behavioral based counseling, spiritual direction, Yoga, personal reflection, and prayer, Lenora was able to experience profound healing and transformation. Her life's mission is to help others do the same.
During her early years of college, Lenora studied both Finance and Modern Dance at San Diego State University. After earning her B.S. degree, she went on to dance with Anaheim Ballet for seven years. Following a knee injury, she went on to use her finance degree to establish Cambridge School of Ballet in Orlando, FL.
During this time, Lenora discerned a call to ministry. Lenora completed her Masters of Divinity degree at Asbury Theological Seminary in 2016. Since then, Lenora has been certified as a trauma-informed RYT 200 and RYT 500 Yoga Instructor, and she is completing the residency portion of her certifications in Spiritual Direction (with Portland Seminary) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (with Achology Academy of Modern, Applied Psychology).
Lenora is especially grateful for the opportunity to journey alongside you and all who those will be joining her in the pursuit of lifelong healing and wholeness. She looks forward to equipping and empowering you to be Brilliantly You!
