Hi! I’m Autumn, thanks for hanging out with me today! I am passionate about helping people become who they were always meant to be. As a society, we have become so conditioned to be what we think we should be, or what we think is expected of us. The path to true happiness is one led from the heart. We can only live a heart-led life when we act in a way that resonates with our soul.
My intention is to help you reconnect with who you really are. A remembering of all that you ever were and have yet to become. Every single person on this earth is capable of great things – we each have a unique design, an extraordinary skill set, and a soul that was designed to love.
I have worked in the holistic health care field for 16 years now. I started in a chiropractic office where I was blessed to have had an opportunity and outlet to use my own intuitive abilities, as well as receive education in the energy realm from muscle testing, emotional release techniques and learning about nutritional and herbal protocols to help support the body in healing.
Later, I had went on to graduate from the Nutritional Therapy Association in 2009 as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. Around the same time, I also co-created an energetic healing technique that addressed the cellular needs of the body, which has now been taught nationally to thousands of health care providers. However, after 9 years in practice, I still felt like something was missing. What was really missing was ME. I was too worried that if I put my spiritual connection and intuitive abilities out there, I wouldn’t be taken seriously – I just wanted to help everyone! I didn’t want to scare anyone away.
After many moments of darkness followed by clarity, and back to darkness…. I realized that I was forcing myself into a box that I was never meant to be in. I was given these gifts for a reason and I wasn’t serving anyone by continuing to extinguish my own light.
I am in no way perfect, but what I am is vulnerable and honest. I believe in facing all of our demons, and I am not afraid to talk about the things that no one else is willing to. In order to fully heal, you must be willing to go through the darkness. We can not just pretend that it doesn’t exist. We have to WORK for our healing! It doesn’t just happen! You handle your shit and you level up. That’s the secret to happiness, fulfillment and purpose. True healing is about leaning into the hard times, the lessons, and the fuckery. The healing is in the process of transformation. You don’t get from dysfunction to healed without going through the transformation.
As a teen I chose many unhealthy outlets as my coping skills of choice, which now I understand were really just my way of numbing myself from life and conditioning. I became a mother when I was 15 years old – and thank God for that because he saved my life! My second child has high functioning autism, my third has Kawasaki Disease, and I lost my fourth, our daughter Hope, in the 5th month of my pregnancy. I have also had my own health challenges ranging from depression, anxiety, PCOS, MTHFR, Epstein Barr, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, hyper/hypothyroid, and chronic pain and inflammation. So when I say I am in it with you – I AM IN IT.
I encourage you to take a look around, read some of my blogs, and if anything resonates with you, I would be happy to help you on your journey!

Healing is messy. It is not linear. It is not always kind, beautiful, or graceful. It can be relentless, tragic…and utter chaos– AUTUMN SMITH, NTP, INTUITIVE HEALER
