Creating Space for Hope, Healing, & Thriving


I believe in the nature of things.

All elements in nature have a nature, an innate way of being.  The dictionary defines nature as "the basic or inherent features of something."  This innate way of being helps the thing - in our case, our bodies - function optimally.  Grow.  Flourish.  Heal.  In my experience with healing work, I have developed a deeply rooted belief that if we honor the inherent nature of our bodies, give our bodies what they need, and work with our bodies rather than against them, they will do what they were designed to do: heal.  I help people listen to themselves in a new, different way in order to gain the inner wisdom their bodies contain.  Our inner wisdom tells us what we need in order to grow, mend, and thrive.  We often develop barriers to listening to our inner wisdom, which results in distress, anxiety, depression, relationship dysfunction, and overall emotional and mental suffering.  When we get what we need, we flourish.

We don't have to stay stuck.  We don't have to repeat painful patterns.  The nature of our bodies is to heal themselves.  The nature of humanity is to thrive.  Let's talk about what your body is telling you.

I love to muse on life.  Especially considering everything I've learned from my own healing journey.  I like to walk through life with a new lens and wonder about things like: self-compassion and why it's so hard; what IS considered selfish?  And more. 

Won't you join me?
