"At times, life can feel overwhelming. One of the ways I work with people is learning to stay present and increasing your self-awareness. This skill can grant us an incredible power to own our experiences and the ability to write our own story–no matter what has happened in our life. Research shows that to change the way you feel, you must first learn to become more familiar with and accept your inner experience. When we learn to listen to our bodies and thoughts with intention, there is no limit to your potential. "Once you start approaching your body with curiosity rather than with fear, everything shifts." -Bessel Van der Kolk"
