“I help people relate to their inner source, nourish themselves, and value the threads connecting us in the larger matrix of life.”
“I devote myself to helping people create more satisfying and loving relationships with the different parts of themselves and with each other. I believe that through the power of connection, we can heal anything. My experience is that creative energies emerge when people come together in a safe environment. When people feel deeply heard and seen, something wakes up inside them and they can extend their hearts more fully into the world.
I am passionate about bringing people together, whether as couples, groups, in workshops and in community projects. I like to help people discover what they have in common, draw on their strengths and aliveness, welcome differences, and learn tools to resolve conflicts creatively and peacefully.”
