About

You're doing it all - online yoga classes, meal-prepping, killing it at work, and making the best sourdough starter on this side of the Colorado River. But when you hit the pillow at night - there's a loneliness, a deep dissatisfaction, anxiety, a stirring discontentment. On the surface, you've got your shit together, but deep down - your life is being hijacked by your self-judgment, anxiety, negative beliefs, and the inner saboteur. Are you ready to get out of your own way so that you can finally enjoy relationships, work, and family? Your heart wants to be held and we were never meant to do this alone.
My work is deeply grounded in neuro and attachment science. I work from a body-oriented framework and am trained in IFS and EMDR for anxiety, self-esteem, and healing trauma. I work with women and couples, empowering them to live fulfilling and connected lives, abundant with joy.
My mission is to provide safe container, a cocoon for you to drop into the places that you may never have encountered before, to explore anything you want - without shame, or judgment. And I will challenge you and hold up the mirror so that you can see your beautiful, whole self.

More about this group

Alt-Anon - a six week alternative to Al-Anon

Bring your chair, your dog, and a cozy blanket, and have a soft landing place for you to just be. I know you. I’ve been where you are, dear one. Feeling the heaviness, guilt, grief, worry, anger, and loneliness. Having a loved one who is struggling with addiction is so consuming and it can become your whole life. It can be so easy to forget about yourself, your well-being, and your life. You deserve a space for you to be held, heard, and seen by other women who get it. We don’t heal in isolation.
