“Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation.” ― Alan Cohen

“The most important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice 
what we are for what we could become.
– Charles Dubois

Whether you are struggling with a painful life situation, emotionally exhausted or simply want to truly discover who you are and deepen your lived experience, know that your best Self and the life you wish to lead already exist, waiting to be discovered and reclaimed. 

Finding Your Own Compass

For me, this work is always a discovery and return to Wholeness. I don't love the word therapy because it assumes that something is broken that needs fixing, when in fact people just need to remember and locate within themselves their own compass. Time and time again, I have seen people find their own answers, locate the Self in them that is infinitely resourceful and loving. My only role is to guide you back to your Self, help you disentangle and shed the unnecessary and help you unlock your own courage and wisdom.

"Even the most extreme suffering is a perfect expression of wholeness, and also a call back to it. Life is a never-ending invitation to discover freedom in everything you’re running from.
And then you can’t call suffering ‘suffering’ at all…who suffers?” 
- Jeff Foster 

Therapeutic Approach

My Approach is eclectic and specific to my clients and their needs. Each session is its own alive movement; no two are ever the same. I meet the client where they are and always try to create a unique and uplifting experience. I don't have any personal agenda in my sessions except to be here fully, listen deeply and offer all my skill and years of knowledge to the benefit of the clients growth. From this space of receptivity and Presence, healing and transformation unfold naturally.
