About Me & A Woman Uncaged

The name A Woman Uncaged was inspired by my journey of freeing myself from the people, environments, foods, habits, and substances that were holding me back from being my TRUE self.

At the start of my healing journey, I was a decade-long weed addict, harboring repressed memories of sexual abuse, suffering from symptoms of complex post-traumatic stress disorder, and in a psychologically abusive marriage.

It was through finding support, getting sober, and healing my mind, body, and spirit that I was finally able to see the invisible bars I'd been living behind, the how and why they'd been put them in place, and that I held the key within myself to open the door and leave.

And so I did!

Over time, I began sharing openly about my experiences – both the high points and the challenges – and I learned that using my voice and sharing my journey was helping not just myself, but other women, too.

Today, I now guide other women through healing their mind, body, and spirit so they can feel better and EXPRESS THEMSELVES, too.

    "I learned so much from Malana. She is very gentle, compassionate and caring, it’s like having an earth angel to help you thru the uncertainty of life, an empathetic friend to hold your hand, when you need it. That is priceless in today’s world."
