Latoya Mathews: It’s Time to Get Free

As we continue our Let It Go Series, one thing I’ve learned about letting go is that there is freedom, beauty, impact and opportunity on the other side of letting go of shame, guilt, past hurts, and past wounds. 

Today’s guest is not only a former student in my signature program, Command the Stage, but she is a powerhouse who specializes in teaching brave women how to heal past wounds and embrace a life of freedom.

Latoya Mathews is an Inner Healing Coach, author & transformational speaker. After years of dealing with the shame and guilt of life after trauma, Latoya was given a crown of beauty instead of ashes and she transcends a message of love and empowerment. 

Latoya speaks with grace, which is the glue among the 5 pillars of freedom within her program: The Free Woman. In addition to group coaching, she also creates safe spaces for women to heal through her two-day transformational retreat, Woman, You Are Free and wherever she graces the stage to speak. Her ultimate mission is seeing more GEMs, an acronym that means God’s Extraordinary Masterpiece, which is what she calls the women in her community as she helps them reclaim their joy and experience the true freedom they deserve.
