My Mission

"As you start to walk on the way, the way appears," -Rumi

My mission is to help guide you into closer alignment with nature and your Spirit, strengthening your vital life force and tapping into the power of your body's natural healing potential. We approach this with medicinal plants & mushrooms, food, lifestyle adjustments and compassionate self-inquiry.  

As your holistic coach, I aim to create a comforting space for authentic connection and transformational conversation where all parts of you are welcome.  Together, we will dive beneath the surface, examining the assumptions, perspectives, values, and beliefs that influence the behaviors and habits that shape your reality.  

As you learn to compassionately embrace yourself with radical self-honesty, connect with your core values, integrate your rejected shadow aspects, and dismantle limiting beliefs, you will be able to shed the mechanical layers of programming that keep you stuck in your patterns.  

Through this process you will be empowered to step fully into your life to heal your body, discover your higher purpose, embrace and embody your true self.  When led by your courageous, curious, calm, creative, compassionate selves, you will tap into the natural flow of life, finding more joy and meaning in every moment.
