About me

I help to heal because...

I am passionate about helping people to heal from trauma, grief and secondary trauma because I understand directly, the devastating effects on the mind, brain and body, the indescribable and uniquely individual pain that impacts who we are and how we exist. Thoughts flooding, circling, heaviness, weakness, pain, tension throughout the body, exhaustion, disturbed sleep, loneliness, isolation, shame, guilt, confusion, unable to connect with others and knowing life will never be the same.
I believe through guidance and support that people can grow, find a sense of stillness, and new ways of being and I believe no matter how, strong, how intelligent or how talented we are, we cannot heal alone.
That’s why I am here to - help to heal.
