Make peace with the past, find solutions for lasting change, and live the story of your best self.

Do You Need Support?

Typically we put our self-care last on the list, only to pay a heavy price later.

Can you imagine looking back a year from now and saying, “Wow, that truly doesn’t bother me any more.” Or, “I finally got the to next level.” Or, “I feel more myself now.”

Meet your goals to make things better, today. Our shared goal is improving the quality of your life!

Struggling?

Is trauma, addiction, anxiety, or grief disrupting your well-being and your life, despite your best efforts to change?

Feeling Stuck?

Are you feeling stuck on a hamster wheel, round and round enduring the same, unresolved issues with yourself or with your partner, family, or work?

Lacking Support?

Are you lacking the support from someone who really listens to you, has your back, and appreciates (and sometimes challenges) your perspective?

Not Progressing?

Have you read the books, attended the workshops, promised yourself this time you’d do it differently… and still find yourself in the same place year after year?

Negative Thoughts?

Does shame and regret fill your head with negative stories about yourself that you just can’t shake off?

Feeling Lost?

Do you yearn to live a life with more belonging, meaning, and freedom and need help finding a new, more satisfying direction?
