“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
– Arundhati Roy
I offer a transformative, liberating experience of counseling that allows people to go beyond the bounds of traditional talk therapy. I specialize in counseling for grief and loss, relationship trauma, and anxiety. Rooted in decades of wisdom and experience as a counselor and meditation teacher, I help people find the deep voice within, and live consciously from this space of authentic knowing. To live consciously in alignment with one’s Self is to live a life of purpose and value: empowered, embodied, authentic, intuitive and connected.
I best serve those who have done some work on themselves, but feel a longing for a deeper relationship with the Self. This call from the psyche for transformation can take many forms, but often emerges as psychological, spiritual, or interpersonal pain. Grief, anxiety and depression, the resurfacing of traumatic memories, or unwanted behaviors stemming from the fallout of trauma can be indicators that you are ready for a deeper level of healing. Feeling out of balance and in pain is an invitation to find your center and reclaim your right to exist fully and authentically as yourself in all aspects of your life. This can be confusing, disorienting, and difficult without support. It is okay to receive this support! It is my life’s work to be present as a guide to the process of reclaiming the Self. Together, we will make space for the pain and joy of being human, and engage the possibility of true liberation and deep peace on every level: body, mind, and spirit.
This is not your run-of-the-mill counseling. This is an invitation to get out of the head and move towards integration and embodiment. This is Soul Work.
If you are ready to tap in to your own deep wisdom, I would love to be a part of your community of support. Take a look around my website to see more about how I work, and then give me a call! I am looking forward to connecting with you.
