Informed by both my personal and professional experience, it’s my belief that women’s experience of and in the world is unique, and must be treated (and celebrated!) as such. I am particularly passionate about supporting women in remembering, rejuvenating and reclaiming their inherent power and wisdom.

Since 2012, I have worked within the field of addictions recovery. It’s my experience that those struggling with addiction - whether it’s to food, sex, alcohol, drugs or even work - all seek to escape, in one form or another, from pain, as addiction often correlates with trauma. It’s my goal to support those battling addictive behaviors to develop healthy coping mechanisms for difficult emotions, process underlying trauma, and reclaim joy.
There’s only so much we can figure out in our heads. It’s my belief that our bodies are constantly speaking to us - whether that’s of anxiety, unprocessed trauma, anger - or even joy! Often, we repress, deny and push down these important communications. Through a variety of somatic interventions, I support clients to reacquaint themselves with the wisdom of their body’s intelligence.
In our fast-paced, modern world, many of us race throughout our days scarcely aware of the weather, much less the nuances of our internal terrain. As a regular meditation practitioner and having been trained in mindfulness-based interventions, I support my clients to reacquaint themselves with the “here and now” and the wisdom that lies in that experience.
Up until very recently in human history, healing took place in sacred spaces outdoors. Many cultures believe that one of the root causes of “dis-ease,” in fact, is the inherent disconnect between our selves and the natural world. It’s my experience that integrating nature-based interventions (even if that’s simply sitting outside for a session!) can be both incredibly grounding - literally and figuratively - and supportive of healing.
