About

There are times in our lives when we feel like things are falling apart. But what if they were actually falling into place? In a safe and caring space, and with compassion and grace, we could explore those areas of your life that have made it difficult (and sometimes impossible) to experience hope, peace, or purpose. Whether we go on a journey to explore your past to heal wounds or remain focused in the present, together we can discover the path forward.
You are the expert on your own life and my job is help you find what you need to bring the change you desire. I can bring my training with EMDR and Sand Tray, along with my more than 12 years of experience into the room. I have grown a particular passion to work with those struggling with eating disorders, trauma, and life transitions.
Favorite quotes that speak to my heart and practice: “’How do you spell love?’ – Piglet ‘I don’t spell it, I feel it.’ – Pooh.” *** “Ego says, ‘Once everything falls into place, I'll feel peace.’ Spirit says, ‘Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place.’” - Marianne Williamson.
