Overcoming is an inspiration to all women who struggle with depression, stagnation and unfulfillment to seek out the peace, power and joy in their own lives.
She was a little girl who loved ice skating, reading and music. Yet from a young age Natasha felt different. She struggled with depression, feelings of abandonment and low self esteem. At 9 she stood with a knife pressed to her wrist, contemplating taking her own life. By 17 she was a pregnant high school dropout.
The next several years were filled with drugs and homelessness on the violent streets of Oakland. She survived through God, her intuition and a profound desire to change. One day she discovered a secret that would change her life forever. This poignant memoir follows Natasha’s journey from a depressed child, to a suicidal teen, to a successful business woman.
It is a story of survival and beating the odds. It is how one woman overcame chronic depression, addiction and the battles of her own mind. It is a story of love and pain, tragedy and triumph, failures and wins. Overcoming is for anyone who never felt like enough. It is a powerful story for those ready to get out of their own way and create the life of their dreams.
About the author
I love deep connections in every form. Whether it’s taking a class, giving a Tarot reading or connecting to the deepest parts of an individual by reading their book – I’m here for it all. I love new ideas, healing crystals and profound conversations. I feel honored to hold space for another person whether that’s in my hair salon (which I opened at the age of 24), or through my 1-1 coaching. I truly believe we are a generation of unstoppable women, who are succeeding and overcoming no matter what the circumstances.

I’ve been blessed to have my work published in the Hudson Weekly, the LA Tribune, MunaLuchi magazine and other publications. I was honored to receive a Certificate of Congressional Recognition. Despite all God’s blessings my best moments are spent traveling with my husband and 3 children.
