"The miracle of self healing occurs

when the inner patient yields

to the inner physician" ~ Vernon Howard.

My work is to support you to heal your own self with tools & practices that work for this unique time in your unique life. Ultimately your healing is your decision, one of the most important ones you will ever make & a choice that deserves deep honor, support & action.

My clients often come to me, and I find I am best able to support them, during life transitions such as: teenage years, young adulthood, pre coupling/marriage, marriage, becoming a parent, transitions through parenting, mid-life, peri/menopause, loss, grief & aging. The anxiety, sadness, upheaval, exploring, unknown & often hidden joy of these times is where I work best to help my clients. There is suffering in so many ways in life & there is also relief from suffering in also so many ways.

I work with clients in way(s) that best support them, engaging a variety of healing tools: talk therapy, meditation, mindfulness, writing, yoga, movement, nature healing & more. My specialties lie within my own life experiences: anxiety, women's issues, parenthood, mid-life, high sensitivity, insomnia, aging, depression & more.

Life is a challenge, always requiring effort even just to exist. And then, there are the numerous life challenges that reach way beyond just existing. So many of them unexpected, confusing, painful, isolating. No matter how light or deep life challenges are, we are not meant to face them alone & powerless. I am here to help. Life cane be better than it is.
