Resentment, feeling stuck, restlessness, and anger - these painful emotions are indicators that it's time to make a change. The feelings we want relief from are deeply potent messengers that we are not living in our truth or purpose. You may already be aware of the need for change - feeling devalued in your relationships or in your career, feeling stuck in behaviors like drinking, over-eating, or numbing out with TV or social media - but the path out is unclear. It's possible to experience our emotions, set-backs, and struggles without feeling completely defeated, less-than, or unworthy.

As part of this holistic approach, I have the belief that as a part of the world and universe in which we live, that we are all, interconnected and operate as a part of a dynamic system.
