You know there is more out there in life for you in regards to health and love for yourself and in relationships. There is often profound grief that comes from the realization that you did not get what you needed emotionally and from loved ones not agreeing to honor boundaries and needs now that you have expressed them.

I would Love to help you feel more confident and live more true to your values and authentic self. Perhaps you keep engaging in coping skills that help temporarily but never fulfill or lead to long term consequences. Maybe you are frustrated because you feel disconnected from your own body and tend to lose your self around certain people in your life or when triggered. Maybe you are over functioning and overthinking which drains you and dims your light. You can learn to choose and direct your thoughts and use emotions as important messengers rather than let them control you and learn effective tools to cope. See specialities page for additional information.
When we feel whole, present, fulfilled, and centered it is one of one of the most loving acts we could ever do for ourselves, our families, and the people we care about the most. It's how we gain light and energy which naturally spills out into our homes, workplaces, and communities. It helps us be more peaceful, responsive, & effective in our everyday lives and prevents resentments, disconnection & burnout. From this place of wholeness we can make more of an impact, have more fun, be more creative, connect with our greater purpose, and form healthier relationships.
People have what they need deep inside and just need to "come back home" to themselves and who they truly are at the core. I can help you restore the light within you. Life is happening fast all around us in today's society and I can provide a safe outlet, tools, and place of refuge to find your center and true path.
I wish you peace, strength, happiness, and light throughout this life's journey. Feel free to explore the site and let me know if you have any questions. Reach out today! I look forward to hearing from you: email@example.com or (908)437-8507
