My choice to pursue this work is a reflection of my deepest passion in life: understanding the art of being human and finding meaningful connection and safety through that. Being highly attuned to others and deeply curious about authentic experience, particularly in the face of transformation and hardship, I have come to find that one of life's biggest challenges is finding permission to do just that: honor one's own authentic Self. It has long been a quest of mine to discover what it is that holds us back from granting ourselves the ability to step into our highest beings and recognizing the beliefs we have to undo on the way. In addition to this, I think relationally and systemically. Recognizing the impacts that systems of oppression have on our mind and body feels essential to this work, and I will always strive to be accountable to my growth in unpacking and understanding systemic oppression. Forever the seeker, I continue to walk my own path of personal evolution and it is my commitment to continue to learn and grow. I am deeply honored to walk beside you, as you too are walking your own journey of the Self.
