"Why go to therapy or pursue inner work? It's a great question because the seemingly simple act of creating a weekly ritual to reflect on oneself is actually a subversive thing to do. Something you discover may reorient your life. Maybe what you originally thought was a problem is more precisely a sign relaying information that could help you love more deeply, live more freely, and be less like everyone else. "

"I am an LMFT specializing in the practice of mindfulness and presence. I believe people possess all they need and are inherently whole, but that life experiences, habitual thought patterns, and negative underlying beliefs cloud awareness and block connection to the deep peace and stillness within each of us. When we identify with the world of form-the form of thought, emotion, or material items-we suffer, because all forms are impermanent and then our sense of identity feels constantly threatened. My desire is to facilitate felt experiences of peace, so people are able to accept any moment with deep compassion and understanding."
