My brand is my beauty, my voice is my vision, my worth is my walk and my gift to the universe. It’s inherent.~LTomay
I am an Author, Christian Life Coach, Substance Abuse Counselor, Social Worker and Co-Founder & President of WORTHshop Inc 501c(3). I am a survivor of domestic violence and abuse. It had taken many years before I was able to get clear on my path and how to use my pain to pass on a purpose-filled message. I had to Discover the truth about me, Embrace who I am, Appreciate all that I experience and Reframe my focus from unhealthy to healthy. In the process of learning how to be dear to myself, there were times that I fell down and needed a relapse rescue. I began to drop-kick doubt, identify self-sabotaging behavior and in the process became the Post-it Princess of Affirmations. In other words, I had to appraise my own worth. I began to acquire and collect things pink, pretty and girlish.
Although I couldn’t finish, I attended Music & Arts performing arts school as a vocal major and every now and again; I still like to sing. I have experienced raising my son as a single mother and divorcing my daughter’s father. I can recall how devastating the divorce was for me; it felt like a part of me died. All my experiences have taught me how difficult it is to continue on an arduous journey, especially when life, people, and situations leave us wearing labels. Let’s be honest, some of the labels that are given to us make us feel devalued, unappreciated and ugly.
It was out of my disappointments, pain and wisdom learned that I birthed a passion and vision to work with women who hide their pain behind their smiles. I teach women who experienced trauma to use love and forgiveness to add color and beauty to their lives; to realize their worth and truth. I help women who have overcome obstacles despite the pain and are still tormented by the past. I highlight how to honor the power of your voice and coach women branded by betrayal from abandoned hope and broken relationships to heal. I am a WORTH Strategist, and I facilitate live events, work with women one-on-one and online groups for women who need to know that they are beautifully made, and that truth is an absolute.
In addition, I facilitate groups to brand young men bold so they can appreciate females, be empowered, show respect, stand up for the rights of women, teach other males to do the same and become accountability partners in life, education, family, and business. The outcome for those I work with is that I help them become a better version of themselves. They too will be able to drop-kick doubt, sock-it to self-sabotage, embrace their truths and pursue their dreams with action. Additionally, labels will be lost, pretense will be peeled back, and self-care will be shown by being dear to oneself. Declarations will be made, “Brand Me Beautiful” and “Brand Me Bold.”
Now it’s your turn. I want to hear more about you. Let’s work together because it’s time to know Your Brand, Your Voice, Your Worth. Let’s brand your life from the inside out.
