"Sometimes it feels like you're standing in your own light and all you see around you is the shadow: motherhood is hard, stress in your work life, tension in your family, or the struggle to relate to your own body. Something is missing & you want to get in touch with deeper meaning, inspiration, purpose and connection. The art of change is subtle yet powerful. It starts RIGHT HERE - the only place and the perfect place from which to start. I support mamas, couples and families to listen to the answers and callings that are hidden in the innate wisdom of their own bodies and psyches."

"Beginning therapy is similar to finally summoning the courage to open wide the door of that overwhelmingly packed closet in your home. While this task can seem daunting at first, the company of a non-judgmental guide can make the undertaking manageable and even rewarding. As this guide, I will support you in taking inventory of what you've kept hidden away for years, possibly due to shame, fear, anxiety, grief or the uncertainty of how to move past old habits. You will develop resilience through listening to your inner wisdom, resourcing self support and expanding your capacity for joy."

"After experiencing sexual trauma, it can feel like nothing makes sense. Your body is reacting with anxiety, exhaustion, and pain (or feeling nothing at all). You feel like everyone has an idea how you ‘should’ act. You might even feel like you have to offer ‘proof’ by telling your story or letting others see your pain. There may be a part of you that wonders if it’s your fault (believe me, it's not). You wish you could just forget it and feel good again. You feel so helpless, vulnerable, unsafe. "

Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it.

"We will take a deep look at troublesome symptoms like depression, anxiety, trauma, interpersonal conflicts, and chronic health issues. In order to make real changes to your life, we will define habitual coping patterns that are built into your mind and body, namely your unique defensive structure, and slowly uncover difficult past events and feelings that you buried to survive. These character aspects are now blocking your healthy self-expressions and authentic self. Eventually your growing self-awareness and the release of long-held emotions will take you to a new life phase."
