    There are so many conflicting feelings, beliefs and stories that we tell ourselves and that are told to us. Navigating the systems of the external world along with our internal and relational worlds is often overwhelming, exhausting and painful. Relating spaciously and curiously with differing parts of self and excavating old narratives can help in honoring all of who we are and invite permission to create and relate in new ways.

    I believe in the power of compassion, creativity and mindfulness via listening to and learning about our nervous systems (aka our bodies' responses). Creating space from the spinning thoughts and bringing attention to what our whole beings are experiencing in the moment can create awareness, then choice, then transformation on a fundamental level.

    Building empathy and compassion for ourselves is not some cliche bullshit, it is a vital skill that needs nurturing and cultivating, and it is also not a pass to avoid taking responsibility for our actions. I believe in the potential of the therapeutic process. Everyone deserves time and space to explore who they are and relate intimately with their world
