"Has someone close to you died? Are you alone in your grief and not sure how to cope? Whether this loss happened 2 weeks or 2 decades ago; whether by suicide, homicide, accidental death, or illness - covid-19 isolation will tend to heighten any feelings of sadness + anger which can show-up as lethargy, insomnia, irritability, + many other symptoms. You are in the right place to find support! Whether with me or any of the other practitioners on this site. Pick any one of us - if it doesn't feel quite right in the first visit, pick someone else. Your 'just right' support is out here, somewhere! Wishing you wellness. 🌱"

"So many of us experience a dissonance with regards to what we think and how we feel. While, we often *know* what might be best for us, we can’t help but *feel* stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, or numb. Many of us carry the negative beliefs, distrust, self-blame, guilt, shame, and (at times) unbearable weight of experiences from our past. You may know that you need healing, forgiveness, and self-love, but unsure of how to get there. I want to help. I take a client-centered, anti-oppressive approach, which considers each person’s unique cultural background, family history, socio-emotional development, worldview, and more."
