Well-Being Is A Skill
Curious about ways to deepen intimacy within?
This is the Sacred Work of Self Discovery
The human condition is so complex. As people, we all have to contend with the same set of emotions, adulthood responsibilities, and the process of creating and maintaining relationships. Therefore, we all encounter struggles, adversity, and setbacks. Ultimately, we are holistic beings, composed of many different elements which all need our awareness, attention and care.
This is a space dedicated to reminding you that you are more than your wounds. You have survived everything that has been thrown at you in this life, and now it is time to thrive. Using a growth mindset, you can begin the process of self-discovery: healing the old hurts, build a new awareness, and learning the skills that will transform your relationships. Especially that super-important one you have with YOU!
I am a Holistic Counselor specializing in Buddhist psychology, complex trauma, and the inner relationships we have with ourselves. I have been guiding individuals and groups to challenge their inner-critics, remember their inner wisdom, and reclaim their value over fifteen years. Above all else, it is my passion to witness individuals transform. Using spiritual psychology, deep inquiry, creative expression, self compassion and forgiveness rituals, mindfulness and practices from Buddhism and Native American traditions, it is my honor and passion to be your guide as you find your wholeness within.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. – The 14th Dalai Lama

I can’t thank you enough for the time and patience you’ve given to me along this journey. I’m trying to acknowledge every day where my source of power and peace comes from when I feel restless and anxious. I won’t ever forget our time together.
Thank you for your guidance and wisdom. You helped me through a dark time and I am so glad the universe pointed me in your direction!
This group was well-structured and organized, and the content presented was very relevant. It was clear a lot of thought was given and work put into coming up with the structure for the class as a whole as well as each individual session. Thanks!
