My personal vision of health includes harmony, connectivity, and balance. For true healing to take place, the entire self – physical, mental, and spiritual must be considered. Each person has a unique path and purpose, and it is my goal to accompany my clients on their journey of discovery and to offer my support and encouragement along the way.
I believe in meeting people where they are and figuring out the path forward together.

Not currently, but I will again soon. When I was a little girl we had a Bichon Frise and a German Shepherd. We lived in a house in front of dense woods, and one day the Bichon wandered into the woods while playing in the backyard and didn't return. After some time had passed and he still had not returned, my father dispatched the German Shepherd into the woods to find him. Within 15 minutes or so, they both emerged, the German Shepherd leading the way. I remember being so happy and amazed. I'll never forget the moment they walked out of the woods together, seemingly with a full understanding of what had just happened, and both appeared to be as happy as I was.
