WELCOME to “ORANGE WALK,” New Beginning Healing Institute’s blog page. Kind of an odd name for a blog, you’re probably thinking. I fell in love with this place and its name from a trip to Belize back in 2018. Orange Walk is a quaint town in Belize, Central America, influenced by early Mexican refugees, who settled there to make a life after the war between the Mayan and British forces. It is a place where Mayan’s began renegotiating their lives and asserting themselves.


As a psychotherapist, I am usually trying to find the meaning behind something. So, yes, this history spoke to me!

ORANGE WALK is a space for women to support and empower each other. You probably stumbled upon this page. Great!

As women, we too often refuse to use our voice in support of ourselves and each other. The message historically and culturally is that our voice does not matter or simply invalid. This blog is about sharing truthfully and professionally on issues of self-discovery, self-care and parenting. Why? We need to do this in order to understand, express and heal ourselves. Hopefully this will lead to practical steps toward self-development and support of each other – a connected and caring community.

So, what can you expect? I am glad you asked!

  • Carefully thought-out articles that have your personal stories and circumstances in mind
  • Practical practice, guidance and models to assist with your concerns.
  • Healing words via poetry enabling emotional and spiritual growth.
  • An opportunity to share your own story in poetry or other genre.
  • Posts packed with fun, facts and education.

WHEN: Bi-monthly.
You will find most resources free and others accessible via subscription.

I count it a privilege to serve and support you! Staying true to “My Why” — Enriching and Empower Women and Girls!

    Everyone at one time or another experienced feeling abandoned!  Abandonment is sometimes a deliberate act and at other times due to circumstances beyond our control.
