There are times in our lives when we just need someone there. Someone who we know gets us and cares as much as we do. At times it's when it's most difficult to reach out, we feel vulnerable and perhaps alone. We can be dealing with old resurfacing trauma, or behaviors we don't understand why they are happening. Perhaps we have anxiety, depression or grief has come knocked at our door. Relationships are challenging us. We want to be met and have a sense of being seen for who and what we are. We long to be understood or simply to find new ways of being and wonder how to get there. We long for change and the knowing that we are OK.

Life can be challenging, stretching us beyond what we believe we are capable of sustaining. We can often feel stuck, not knowing how to break free from unhelpful patterns, or not able to cope with the intensity of the feelings we are experiencing. The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. I offer a safe place to land and support for whatever you are going through. Together, through reflection and exploration, we can bring compassionate awareness and a deepening understanding to your experience and work together to create the changes you are seeking.

‘Hearts are not the burdens they carry; but the burdens they carry can drive their extremes' (Richard Schwartz, 2018). There are times when we feel truly burdened: exhausted, confused, immobilized, distressed, anxious, in relationship discord or overwhelmed. Seeking help in these times is a profound step. Because as challenging as these experiences can be, our willingness to approach them, and our courage to change, are our openings to growth, expansion, and transformation. I collaborate with you to help you unburden, and to empower your authentic Self to live with more calm, courage, compassion, meaning, and deep connection.
