"Graceful. Joyful. Thoughtful. Skilled...you inspire me to live life more fully." -S.S
The work I do is both a calling and a passion. When I work with clients, I bring everything I have to the table (mind, heart, and spirit) and I love the challenge of customizing the work to each person. I believe in the power of an integrated and holistic approach to health and it is an honor to journey with my clients and see them regain their sense of confidence, connection, and peace.

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue...And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
