Whether it's disconnection from relationships, passions, or yourself, feeling overwhelmed by daily life, or struggling to navigate past experiences impacting you today, you're in the right place. I understand that life can be challenging, and I'm here to help. Life, often a fast-paced and challenging journey, becomes richer when we embrace moments of reflection, self-discovery, and healing. It is in the moments that we are able to slow down that life becomes meaningful. I provide a tailored approach that is aimed to meet you wherever you may be on your journey. If you're hoping to rediscover a sense of connection and fulfillment or if you've been feeling adrift, disconnected from your community, relationships, passions, or even from your true self, we're here to help. I am a specialist in supporting individuals and couples facing life transitions, stress, burnout, anxiety and disconnect.
