“Be kinder to yourself. And then let your kindness flood the world.”

-Pema Chödrön

We each face challenges as a part of life.

And for many, this has been amplified in the pandemic. Many of us are struggling with:

  • A changing landscape at work and in our communities
  • Balancing the demands of life
  • Feelings of burnout and exhaustion
  • Uncertainty about the future and about personal next steps
  • Languishing – a state in which we generally feel “blah”
  • Limited time for self-care
  • Decision fatigue
  • Compassion fatigue
  • Self-criticism
  • Increased sense of separation from others

If you relate to any of these challenges, you are not alone.

Meet life’s struggles with curiosity and compassion.

I work with individuals and groups to learn, practice and apply transformational skills to manage stress, enhance well-being, explore sustainable self-care, navigate uncertainty and transitions, and to get unstuck.

I offer one-on-one sessions, courses and workshops. I am currently offering both virtual and in-person sessions.

What my clients are saying

I can’t express how much I enjoyed interacting with you during our coaching sessions. I got so much more out of it than I could have possibly imagined. With your gentle & insightful guidance, I was able to shift some long ingrained patterns of harsh self-judgment.

You are so giving of yourself and your time and talents, and the lessons you taught me continue to resonate and ripple through me.
