Throughout my life, I have observed and developed a deep appreciation of human nature - including the struggle we face to maintain uniqueness in a society that bombards us with unrealistic expectations of who we “should” be. Do you find yourself trying to fit into the mold of what you perceive other people (romantic partners, friends, family, employers) expect of you? In our attempt to maintain connections and avoid feelings of rejection, we avoid letting people know who we truly are. We will put on any mask that secures the illusion of being loved or accepted - all the while rejecting and losing connection with our true selves.
When we live out of old wounds and deny our authentic selves, anxiety, depression, or other destructive behaviors creep in. Seeking change on the path of transformation is often difficult. The self-discovery quest for “authenticity” is crucial for attaining a contented life of purpose aligned with self-defined values. Fulfillment from within.
I commend your courage in embracing your greatest gift- your true self! If you are ready to embark on this journey, know you do not have to take it alone. I will crawl into the pit, shine the light in shadowed dark corners, help you dispel false beliefs, discover new truths, and, most importantly, share your healing and joy. The journey is traveled together.

Three things I stand by: you can't shock me, you can't offend me, and there is NOTHING you have done or had done to you that would make me think less of you as a person. I don't shy away from the darkest behavior, overwhelming fear, intense pain, or relentless shame. We all embark on life's path. I empathize with the struggle that comes with the nature of being human in an often inhumane world.

I fall flat at superficial. Going deep comes naturally. Tracing core issues and repeating patterns to the source or core wound is where I excel. Some call it inner child healing or shadow work. I'm not too fond of labels; I prefer the process to unfold as intended. My focus is to provide insight into bits that facilitate change by dissolving fear and leading to a life of self-empowerment.
