About

Many of the problems we experience in life can be traced back to parts of ourself that are wounded or not properly integrated. I help you to reflect and make sense of your experience, and to work through areas of your life that bring discomfort. In moving through these discomforts/stuck areas in a new way, you release these wounds, become free from their grasp & move into more aligned, embodied & authentic living. We cannot fully integrate (become whole in our life) unless we heal and integrate all parts (this includes shadow work, healing parental and childhood wounds, ego work, sacred sexuality, reprogramming belief systems).
I use a variety of therapeutic approaches that take into account the whole person (body, mind, spirit), as well as energy medicine, visualization, journaling and breathwork. I also help with microdosing support, & the preparation & integration process with psychedelic medicines, spiritual growth / emergence, & healing the inner feminine/masculine dualities.
Our biggest moments of crisis, when worked with appropriately, are in fact our greatest sources of personal growth and transformation. I often challenge the medical model paradigm, & instead help clients recognize and tap into the innate healing potential / wisdom that each person possesses within. Reach out if you are energized to do this work together.
