I am an ally to women, children, and families adjusting to the natural difficulties of life. It is easy to feel trapped, stuck and overwhelmed. At times we are navigating heavy loads without being aware of the strain on our emotional physical, and mental health. 

The pain of hopelessness, anxiety, and loneliness can mask the true underlying issues. My passion is to help you navigate back to a balanced life by creating an environment for you to slow down and assess the core conflict behind your distress

I am a certified wellness coach with a degree in wellness promotion My education in wellness has prepared me to view you from a holistic lens. I will utilize a person centered approach and evidenced-based interventions to help you reach your goals.

Mission and Values

Wellness

We believe in holistic wellness. Oftentimes your distress presents across a range of wellness dimension. You will be contextualized within the scope of your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. 

Inclusivity

We value diversity and inclusivity and practice body positivity. This is a space to dismantle structures of oppression, dismiss shame, and embrace your power. We work to interact in a way that informs the many aspects of your cultural identity. You will be viewed accurately within the context of societal forces which influence your experience. 

Healing

We know that many difficulties stem from old wounds. Past hurts that have never been addressed. We work from a lense of healing. We want to understand how you’ve arrived here and all the significant moments that my have contributed to what is happening in your life. Often, the wounding begins very early in life. We will help you process those past hurts and encourage you to be present in the here and now to begin taking charge of your life. The story you tell yourself about who you are is one of the most important aspects of healing.
