We are here to thrive, not just survive. As a licensed therapist, Shamanic practitioner and former bodyworker, I am here to help the soul searchers, truth seekers, and those on a quest to rediscover their authentic selves towards overall health and healing. I will support you on your journey to shed the layers of fear, shame, trauma and pain. I will help you on your spiritual or self healing journey, providing additional support as you encounter life's challenges. When the walls come down, and the truth of the authentic self begins to emerge, it may be difficult, but we will move through it together. We will identify triggers and blockages, and look into things such as unhealthy attachments, cognitive distortions (negative thoughts) and “less than healthy” belief systems. It doesn’t matter whether they came from trauma in childhood, abuse, unhealthy relationships, grief or loss, I am here to help. By identifying, processing, and releasing that which no longer serves you will allow the true healing to finally begin and set your feet on the path you were meant to walk.

No one is an expert more on your life than you. However, sometimes inviting in trusted support helps you get perspective on your fears, disappointments, and feeling stuck or confused about next steps in life. No matter the season of life you are in, asking for help is both courageous and what moves you forward. Your resiliency and the combined power of your strengths are how you navigate through life’s challenges. You and your loved ones are not a diagnosis; being human is not a flaw but a strength to be honored.
