"I believe that humans yearn to live in right relationship with ourselves, the earth, and all beings. We yearn to live a life in which we can fully accept ourselves, connect meaningfully with others, and experience true belonging within our communities and the larger world. My intention as a practitioner is to honor and nurture this internal yearning, in order to help you build an external world that mirrors these values and visions. In order to build a more beautiful world and life, we must first heal from the past traumas and obstacles that have disrupted our sense of safety and interconnection in the world around us."

"I care deeply about supporting people when they feel lonely, stuck and hopeless, and the usual things just aren't working. My clients tend to be high functioning adults who have reached a critical point where something has to give. Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own."
