I have had a deep interest in personal growth and spirituality for as long as I can remember. As a child, my dad would read me books like “Be Here Now” and tell stories that shifted the lens through which I viewed the world. Although I would roll my eyes with my sister in response, I must admit they provided me with a vague sense of comfort. However, as I grew older, there was often a nagging feeling that there must be more to this life. I was constantly searching for answers, ways to understand myself, and methods to address the depression that continued to sneak up on me. And so my journey began.
In my early 20's, I attended graduate school to study counseling, mostly in an attempt to gain some insight into my own struggles and bigger questions I had about life. After more searching, I found yoga and a philosophy that really spoke to me as it reminded me of those early childhood teachings. I soon started meditating and together found a practice that supported an experiential approach to becoming more aware of my inner world.
I learned how to watch the breath, sensations in the body, my thoughts and emotions, and in witnessing these, experience some space around them. What a relief to realize that I didn’t need to continually fix myself and all of my perceived problems. Instead, I learned that meaningful transformation comes from bringing more awareness into every aspect of our lives so we can wake up to the material that’s holding us back and be free to participate in life with more presence, connectedness, and love.
I am deeply committed to this path and am truly excited to share it with you and support you on your journey.
