finding health in relationships by embracing the nature of your body’s natural healing rhythms

You’re tired of feeling confused and alone in your relationships.

You might be realizing that you’ve spent way, WAY too much time over-analyzing your relationship, blaming yourself.. feeling like you’re never doing enough. You spend more time feeling confused and wondering what you did wrong than actually having a relationship. You find yourself constantly worrying about what others are thinking of you. You may be contemplating divorce, going through a divorce, or maybe that you really don’t want to divorce, but that you just want things to be better. Or, you don’t know what you want to do. You do know that something has to change. You’re afraid that you’ll never had the relationship you’ve always wanted.

You definitely know that you don’t want to end up alone.

You dream of a relationship that you feel secure in, one that you don’t have to question every day. You want to trust that the good places in the relationship aren’t fleeting, but that they can be the norm. You want to be able to resolve issues without having the same fight over and over again. You want to trust that you are loved, and that your partner will be there.

This picture is completely attainable, and it starts within you. I specialize in helping women cultivate fulfilling relationships. Whether it’s a new relationship or one you already have, whether it’s the relationship with your partner or with friends, family or coworkers -or even the one with yourself - you CAN get to a healthy, fulfilling place in your relationships.

The nature of our bodies is that we are deeply wired for connection. My clinical foundation rests on the fact that our bodies know how to heal themselves and how to create healthy life & relationship patterns. We have a healthy yearning for intimacy and deeply long to be seen and known in our relationships. You can read more about my counseling approach and how I help my clients use their bodies’ natural healing system to find and cultivate the relationships they desire.

We often start the new year feeling motivated to make changes.  We feel fresh and inspired.. we’re ready!

And then, there’s February.

It’s common – and so easy – to lose steam.  Research shows that 80% of people who make new year’s resolutions don’t keep it them.

Ever wondered what’s behind that?  If there’s a way to recapture the motivation?  Why is it so easy to slide back into old habits?  Why is it so HARD to make REAL changes?

Let’s talk about that! Click the link below to learn more and to RSVP!

Join me at Sunflower Cafe!

It’s so common in our stress-filled culture: cramming food between meetings, going straight for the chocolate after a hard day or binging out during a Netflix sesh, and did I REALLY finish all the chips myself..?  The food meant to provide nourishment and strength for our bodies and souls often becomes a means of distraction.  Distraction from our thoughts, our emotions, our selves.  We therefore keep distracting with food, and the cycle repeats.

So, how do we repair our relationship with food?  How do we return to using food as a sacred source of nourishment rather than a means to distract and disconnect?

Click to learn more! Hope to see you there!

Counseling Services

“I can’t keep doing this.”

“There has GOT to be another way.”

"I need help."

Statements like these are the very first fruits of change. It’s a painful, yet potent and necessary start to the process of getting what you really want.

So let’s talk about how to get what you really want.

I specialize in counseling for women who want to find the relationship with a partner, with others, and within themselves that they’ve always wanted. I also specialize in anxiety & panic attacks and trauma/PTSD.

If you have any questions about the issues I treat, or if you would like additional guidance in getting the help you need, please don't hesitate to contact me.

**I proudly serve individuals of any race, nationality, culture, religious/spiritual belief system, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Everyone is welcome at this table.

Workshops & Events

Workshops are an ideal place to gain additional wisdom and information within our growth journey, AND to connect with others who are in a similar life space. Some of the most transformational change happens in a safe and supportive community.

I provide workshops that focus on relationship with self and others. And.. I love to get creative! Some events are in nature, some involve crafting/play, self-care took kits, some are more formal, etc. But within all events lie lovingly crafted tools to improve your relationship with self and others.

Take a peak at my current offerings! Would love to have you.

Blog

I love to muse on life.  Especially considering everything I've learned from my own healing journey.  I like to walk through life with an ever-evolving lens and wonder about things like: self-compassion and why we run from it; Am I being selfish?  How do I be healthy but not perfect? Etc. I love to share what I’ve learned and what I’m learning.
