  • What We Do

    My approach is a spiritual and energetic and educated view of the dynamics in your relationship and how to navigate them. I'm highly intuitive, but I will put everything I see into practical measure for you.

    This is peer support and not to replace any other medical care you have in place. Our time is more un-therapy, meaning it's time for you to create something new rather then focus on what has been affecting your life so far.



    I will give you scripts on how to get through a crisis with your loved one.

    I will give you breakthrough support references for nutritional and supplemental support for yourself and your partners brain health. The best people to follow and books to read.

    Not a "How To" book...A real autobiography of the journey of discovering bipolar

    broken image

    "Whoops I Married Bipolar"

    This title is not meant to insult anyone, but that is what went through my head when I realized the reality of my loved ones illness. This is an inside look at the story of my experience of falling love with someone without knowing he had mental illness.


    The story is an emotional and spiritual reflection of the unfolding of bipolar disorder in the relationship. It is the story before the diagnosis. I want to help people realize what they are dealing with earlier and remove the shame of staying in the relationship. It's not a fairy tale, and we are not saints, so prepare yourself for the real adult story of love with a spouse with bipolar.

    After a year, I never even read her book until this week when I bought it online.
    After reading it I am even more convinced how relatable her story was to me. Our husbands may have different diagnosis- but everything else was so familiar!
    She is one of the folks who inspired me to start blogging my story. She doesn’t know me, and I don’t know her/ but I appreciate her so much. Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for inspiring me to share mine!

    Temple! What a great book! There were times that I felt like you were talking about my life, I think all of us can relate in so many ways! I’m really looking forward to the second one. Our mental Health system is sooo frustrating God Bless you and your husband. I have always thought about writing a book, I’m so glad that you did! And the title at first glance had me go hmmmm...and then realizing that we have to laugh instead of cry sometimes! I didn’t think it was offensive though.

    Former Clients Testimony

    Temple is a wealth of information and resources. She brings practical wisdom and tools to her clients. She is insightful and compassionate. One title could not adequately describe the beautiful synergy of specializations that Temple brings to her clients: a life coach, healer, therapist, energy-worker, spiritual guide, nutritionist, and so much more all wrapped up in a caring and humorous package! You will feel her presence and see the positive impact on your life.


    Working with Temple is an investment into yourself and your loved ones. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their lives.


    I have gained insight and perspectives as well as solid life skills and tools to utilize when life becomes difficult or overwhelming. I am better equipped to handle crises when they arise. I give myself more grace and acceptance. I am lighter and more at peace overall. I am more free to be authentically me!

    Former Clients Testimony

    Temple gives you the eyes you need to see the truth of your situation. She gives you the ears you need when you have no one to talk to about your situation with your Bipolar loved one. And she gives you the love and courage you need to do what needs to be done to take care of yourself and your family. Temple gives you her wealth of information and personal experience in walking through life with someone you love who has a mental illness. She gives you insight and practical advice on what steps you need to take and the order to take them in. She gives you, with your own intuition, a step by step action plan to take control of your life and help your bipolar loved one. She gives you a shoulder to cry on and a hand to hold and the validation you need to keep going.


    I have seen myself come back to life. I was frozen in my situation and didn't know what to do or where to start. Temple helped me create an action plan and see my situation for what it really was. She helped me affirm to myself what I needed to do to heal and how best to help my husband.

    Thank you for your posts. They help me with having more compassion with my husband and daughter who both suffer with bipolar..I get so frustrated but have to realize it's not them..its the bipolar. You are so right about having time to yourself. It is so important and helps a lot. It is hard being a caretaker in a marriage..and no one to care for us..we have to make it priority to care for ourselves as to not get burn out!

    @whoopsimarriedabipolar .
    I still feel like I was meant to stumble on her page. I was meant to see her story. I was meant to look at her videos and absorb the tips she posted online on managing life with a bipolar spouse.
    John was later correctly diagnosed with schizophrenia and correctly medicated (so far!) but I never forgot Temple. This entire time, I never even read her book until this week when I bought it online.
    After reading it I am even more convinced how relatable her story was to me. Our husbands may have different diagnosis- but everything else was so familiar!

    Temple Time

    See the world through my eyes, you'll be amazed what you see.

    Most of society see's the physical reality as the truth of their circumstances, I see the Spirit of our lives as the truth. The conditions can change dramatically by our actions, we can be rich and poor, healthy and sick in the same lifetime but if we focus on our spiritual condition first, the earthly conditions won't have the power over us.


    I started at out in my 20's teaching awareness to teenagers on how to understand what they were creating with their intentions and how to see God all things, no matter how it looks. As I got older so did my clients and now in my 40's I have supported many marriages and families in healing. I am a voice for the family to speak to each other with clarity and a spiritual mediator to always reflect what it is that God wants us to see and to coach the family on how to bring prayer into their lives as a tool. Also, to see past the veil of emotions and pain, but the true growth that is to evolve our souls.

  • Testimonials -

    "I have seen miracles take place from businesses being developed from nothing, cancer recovery, healed marriages, falling in love after great heartbreak. I don't make those things happen, but I will help you see what's possible for you and how it is possible to manifest the miracles." Temple

    How People Are Affected

    "Temple, first I want to tell you I did sleep last night. I have thought about our time yesterday, really learned a lot about myself from you - you are right on the mark. You really do have a special gift.
    I wished mostly that I had recorded our conversation so that I could listen over & over not to miss a thing. What I do know is the path my life has taken has been what my subconscious is comfortable with. I will change my thinking and be the conscious woman I deserve to be." (2014)


    "The Conscious Woman is a place of refuge and strength to me. It's a safe place for growth and weakness the same, without judgement or consequences. I always leave feeling like I've made new friends with my peers and myself."  (2012)

    Real Pain

    I want you to know that I know about real pain. I'm not talking about rips and tares, I'm talking about the darkest seasons of pain. The time in life when you have no hope, no direction, and your barely holding on. I know that place. I have been there. I will share a bit of my experience in hopes that you will feel safe talking to me.


    I waited my whole life to have a child. I have hormonal issues as a teen that kept me on birth control most of my life. The relationships I had been in never leveled out for me to feel safe to have a child. Then at 37 I met someone that I thought would be my life mate. A few years into the relationship I got off birth control and we got pregnant. It was the miracle I was waiting for, however, I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks and it was completely devastating. I had to take time to find out what happened and get my body corrected. I wanted to try again, but things started to fall apart with my marriage. My husband was showing very serious signs of mental illness. I always knew there was something wrong, there was enough good for me to hold on and support him to heal, but things quickly went downhill. He had a complete mental breakdown and refused to get help. I stayed enclosed with him for months while he raged and spiraled out of control until he ran off and stayed away for months. It wasn't until he almost lost his life that we were able to get him diagnosed and treatment for bi-polar disorder, but the treatment was to late and the battle was to long. So much damage over the years of trying to get help had cause a split in the marriage that we couldn't save. I thought I had lost my husband to mental illness and also any plans of having a family of my own. I battled the darkness that came into my house for months and months, and not only did God restore my life, my husbands life and brought us a great new home, God has restored my heart with forgiveness and a strength that I never even new I had.


    I'm telling you this because I know what it feels like to be someone of great faith and feel like God has failed you. It is the worst feeling in the world. I know what it takes to get through that season. I have done it and so will you.

    Not therapy. Real time results.

    What will happen?

    The time with me will not be about the client dumping a bunch of emotions on me or on other members of the group. It does not take me long to get the picture of the energy that is being exchanged between loved ones or the spirit of the blockage. I will quickly identify what it is that is causing division and we will talk about practical solutions and spiritual solutions.

    God and my education is my source of information and I find my direction by asking my source to tell me. I offer hands on support to people midst of chaos. That is paired up with years of personal life experience and a large history of college and independent studies.


    I am available for speaking engagements on any topic that you want someone to bring enlightment to. Marriage, money, health. I love to work with couples that we can use real life situtations on the spot to create healing and better relationships through prayer and conscious thinking.


    Public speaking is my favorite way to bring healing. Its live, powerful and always exciting.
