"If you're not living the life you love, lets talk about it. I work with highly ambitious, driven people whose lives seem to be going well on the outside – but privately, they're in pain. My clients may also experience lack of focus and procrastination. The cause may be evident or waiting to be discovered. Either way, something needs to be addressed in order to fully blossom, and my clients are willing to do the work to address it. "

"You're not sure what changed, but you have noticed that you don't feel like yourself anymore. You feel exhausted and on edge. Your mind is constantly racing, and you can't seem to focus. Instead of doing the things you used to do, you binge watch TV or spend hours “scrolling” because that's all you have the energy to do. You try to sleep, but can't seem to quiet your mind, and you wonder if you will ever feel better."

Perhaps you're sensing some incongruence in your life, and need a space to tune in. We all get stressed and overwhelmed at times, but if we do not attend to those cues, we can end up causing ourselves more pain in the long-run. Or worse, suffering.
