“Don’t apologize for the sorrow, grief, and rage you feel. It is a measure of your humanity and your maturity. It is a measure of your open heart, and as your heart breaks open there will be room for the world to heal. That is what is happening as we see people honestly confronting the sorrows of our time.”―Joanna Macy

All of us are shaped by the causes and conditions of our lives, and all of us are worthy of reclaiming our freedom and vitality. We can only change that which we are conscious of. By cultivating awareness, we begin to see and understand more fully that which is causing our suffering. This is the beginning to our freedom.
Whether you are wanting to dive deeper into your relational experiences with yourself or others or interested in cultivating practices to support your overall experience of being human, we will use a mindfulness and body-based approach to explore and support your growth and healing. Sessions currently being offered via zoom.
Grief is a wild, unexpected, uncontrollable teacher. Many of us have lost the traditions and contexts that once supported grieving. Especially now, with the chaos of the world, you may be experiencing grief – whether ambiguous or directly related to loss. We are wired to grieve together. For grief to move, it is essential to be witnessed. I am here to walk with you in your grief in order to fully journey through and praise the transformation of life.
The middle school and high school years are essential times in life to have trusted allies to support positive maturation both developmentally and emotionally. There are so many pressures happening – internally and externally – that can be difficult to navigate without grounded and devoted guidance. I offer dedicated online and in-person mentorship sessions as a way for your tween or teen to receive safe and supported care. Whether it is through working with me one-on-one, with someone else, or through group learning, there are myriad resources to support your child’s development.

Spirit Rock Meditation Center in northern California also offers seasonal meditation series for youth, annual teen meditation retreats, and family retreats.
