I’ve been on a journey into healing and intuition, and I've learned a lot along the way. If I can be of help to you in your healing process, I would be honored to walk with you. You are not alone.

Below are offerings for both remote (phone) and in-person support, which can be scheduled on a regular or as-needed basis without expectation or obligation. I do not diagnose or pathologize. My approach is rooted in my belief that all people are capable of and entitled to a direct relationship with their own innate wisdom and creator.

  • Empathetic Witness ($60/hr)

  • Creativity Coach ($60/hr)

  • Psychedelic journeywork and integration (personalized)

Empathetic Witness

 

So many of us are taught by our parents and culture that our basic human behaviors and desires are shameful. We learn to hide ourselves, distrust the world's ability to receive us, and internalize this programming to become our own in-house trolls. We fear that if others see us just as we are--at times afraid, uncertain, unskillful, or ignorant--we will be outed as unlovable. We do not know that our culture’s values are making us unwell, that we have been denied access to our ancestors, that it is natural to grieve and rage. Trapped in a small box with our experiences, we may fear that we are slowly going crazy.

If this is resonant: you are not alone, and you are not crazy. It is my honor to create a space where it is safe to explore emotions and practice cultivating secure attachment to another person. My goal is to provide a kind, non-judgmental presence to help anchor exploration of experience, belief systems, and the internal storytelling that propels our behavior. Together we can shine light on the deep places within. Our wounds are also our gifts, if we allow ourselves to own them. In this way, all of us are broken, and all of us are whole. 

 

Some things we could work on:​

  • Hearing yourself think

  • Excavating limiting beliefs and stories

  • Releasing shame

  • Acknowledging and voicing fear, insecurity, doubt, confusion, anger, guilt, etc.

  • Talking about things you haven't been able to share with someone else 

  • Creating a new relationship to habitual thoughts and behaviors

  • Creating compassionate, forgiving, humorous internal dialogue

  • Deepening your transparency with your partners, parents, or world at large so that you can experience a cohesive sense of self no matter where you are or who you are with

Creativity Coach

There is abundant beauty and wisdom in every one of us, and so often it is hardest for us to see this power in ourselves. We all come into incarnation with divine gifts, but many times we lose sight of our soul's purpose in the onslaught of social conditioning, family dynamics, and the pressures of capitalism. Too often we silo the concept of “creativity” to a narrow selection of professions when in actuality, each of our lives is a creative act. We are all invited to share ourselves with the world through infinite channels of expression, be it language, touch, sound, image, ritual, teaching, and so on.

 

It is our healing journey to fall in love with ourselves as creative children once again. Feeling whole and aligned means owning our birthright as the embodied expression of the universe’s creativity: creation and creator. It is my greatest pleasure to reflect back to you your highest self as you rediscover play and fulfillment. Our conversations can be an open place for exploration and encouragement, or a more focused workshopping of personal narratives and creative projects.

Some things we can work on:

  • Identify themes, archetypes, and synchronicities that reveal your soul path

  • Exploring fruitful personal narratives from your life

  • Witnessing yourself with love, forgiveness, and compassion

  • Moving energetic paralysis, uncertainty, feeling “stuck”

  • Releasing attachment to outcomes and falling in love with process

  • Creating rituals for creativity

  • Speaking dreams aloud, making incantations of manifestation

  • Identifying aligned action

Journeywork

If you are called to explore psychedelic medicines, and would like some support, I am available to hold space before, during, and after your journey inward. I seek to bridge the teachings I have received from entheogenic medicines including ayahuasca, mushrooms, peyote, and DMT/5-me0 with the realm of manifestation. Please send me a message to start a conversation about what you seek.

Some things I offer:

  • Context and open conversation  

  • Ceremony support

  • Integration support

  • Grounding for challenging experiences

  • Exploration of message and gifts revealed
