WHEN PEOPLE WORK WITH ME, I AM GUIDED BY THEIR NEEDS. I WANT TO HEAR THEIR STORY.
I’m all about self-love, self-care, self-realization. I am guided by the beauty and joy in nature. I love to help people learn to feel themselves inside their own bodies, befriend the blind spots, realize what they are feeling, why they are feeling it, and how to use that information to evolve and to participate in life more efficiently. Together we can quiet the outer noise to calm the inner self. We can learn to connect deeply with our experiences so we can fully experience our lives. We can choose to be what we want to be in our lives. We choose who we want to be around. We can show up fully for ourselves, and for each other.
I WANT US ALL TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE, MOVE, AND EXPRESS OURSELVES IN A WAY THAT IS HEALING AND EMPOWERING.
And we can do this by...
Listening to our own inner wisdom
Trusting ourselves and others
Working through physical and emotional trauma and anxiety
Detoxifying the body and clean living
Self-love and self-care
Quieting the mind
Relaxation of the nervous system
