Hello my friend, I'm so happy you're here.
I’ve spent the last decade of my life dedicated to finding the answers to some of life’s hardest questions. At the beginning of this journey, it started with the question: “why do some people seem to have it all figured out, while others struggle just to get out of bed in the morning?” Because at the time, I was the latter. Why was I struggling so much to figure out who I was and what I wanted, when my peers were pursuing their dreams (and succeeding!) right before my eyes. I just couldn’t understand. What was wrong with me?
Fast forward 10 years, 2 Masters degrees, multiple trainings and certifications, hundreds of hours of personal healing and growth (and counting…), and dozens of clients who have found intention and health in their lives later, and I’ve come to know that everyone, including you, is capable of creating the life they want.
What my education and experience has taught me is that personal and collective healing needs to come from a sense of embodiment. We all have our own stories of disconnection, loneliness, and trauma. It’s my purpose to support others in bridging the gap between their past, present, and future; between their mind and body; and between doing and being. Although there is no such thing as a “magic pill that heals all,” I’ve found that breathwork and meditation, when combined with deep listening and empathy, are extremely powerful tools to help facilitate the journey back to Self. It is truly an honor to be able to do this work.
