Let's Begin

Weeding the roots of stress from daily life

Instead of helping you manage the symptoms of stress, I will partner with you to pinpoint what is causing you stress in the first place. 

I believe that the most destructive stress we experience is a by product of living at odds with who we truly are. 

I will help you clearly identify what is most essential to you and partner with you to re-design your life so that you prioritize what matters most to you.

Together we will create a practical, actionable plan that will enable you to interrupt your stress real-time, in your day-to-day life, at the roots using daily body centered mindfulness as your compass. 

When you book a session there will be some pre-work to support you getting started, before our first session, discovering what keeps the stress cycle alive in your daily life.

While we won’t solve all your stress related concerns in one session, we will map a path and kick start meaningful change.
