Joan Cantu is a resilient soul who has triumphed over fear and pain. Through her own personal journey, Joan has discovered the power of facing fears head-on and embracing the healing process. Now, she is passionate about empowering others to do the same.

From a young age, my life was enveloped in chaos and turmoil. The tragic loss of my great grandparents and their children in a horrifying massacre set the stage for the challenges I would face. With my father never found and my mother abandoning us, I was left to navigate the world alone.


During those formative years, I endured unspeakable abuse - physical, sexual, mental, and emotional. The weight of homelessness burdened me, and the relentless beatings I endured from the age of seven to thirteen pushed me to the brink of despair. It was at that darkest moment that a defibrillator intervened, breathing life back into my fragile existence.


However, the scars of my past ran deep, leaving me with a pervasive sense of inadequacy. Determined to break free from the chains of my traumatic past, I embarked on a journey of healing that has spanned over a decade. 


Now, having traversed my own path from victim to victor, I have dedicated myself to helping others reconnect with their true selves and cultivate self-love. Through my coaching and guidance, clients are empowered to develop positive habits that embolden them to face their fears head-on, while tailored strategies enable them to effectively manage stress and anxiety according to their unique needs. 


My ultimate aim is to enable individuals to not just survive, but to thrive, to live a meaningful life, with unwavering confidence, boundless compassion, indomitable resilience, and an empowered mindset. Witnessing the transformation of my clients as they reclaim their lives and embrace their own worthiness fuels my passion and commitment to this work.


Remember, no matter how dark your past, or whatever you might be going through, there is always hope for a brighter future. I am living proof that healing and growth are possible, and I am here to support you on your journey towards a life filled with confidence, self-love, and the resilience to overcome any adversity.
