Life generously provides us with experiences & distractions that can make it challenging for us to connect with our intuition & core values. In our busy world, connecting to ourselves & others can be challenging to achieve.  Counseling is a way to create a space for the truth to present itself.  I am honored to learn from you & guide you toward what is truly important to you. Together, we can become aware of what supports you in connecting to your inner knowing- your most authentic self.”
