My mission is to lead people toward their innate, unshakeable goodness, their deepest desires and wishes, to their ultimate freedom.
I am a teacher, coach, and guide. I have strong maternal energy and believe that much can be healed through the simple experience of unconditional acceptance. I will be your witness, your ally, your partner in discovering your most liberated self so that you can go LIVE.
I have held many professional roles in my life (high school teacher, birth and postpartum doula, parent educator, resource center director). Now, I am a mother, coach, and group facilitator.
My work is rooted in my unwavering faith that all people are inherently good and that life, whilst painful and challenging, is profoundly beautiful.
This faith comes from my journey through my own intense, painful, and beautiful life. I have lost most of my family to death, I have been married and divorced, I have birthed two children, I have come out as bisexual and gender queer, I have changed careers, I have been poor, rich, and middle class, I was bullied as a child, I survived an alcoholic, depressed, suicidal mother who then died when I was 16… I have questioned the point of life and come through the other side… and I have faith that, with resources and support, you can move through your unique experience of life and its challenges with intentionality and consciousness.
I have integrated my skills from teaching, doula work, motherhood, studying somatic psychology, parent education, and transformational leadership (through COR) to offer innovative, intuitive, transformational one-on-one coaching and group facilitation using cutting edge transformational methodologies as well as various somatic healing practices.
In addition to working one-on-one or with couples, I lead transformational and professional development workshops for small organizations and facilitate the New Mothers Circle, which is a rite of passage series for new mothers at Natural Resources.
