I have survived a debilitating eating disorder, a multi-year illness in my early twenties, a near-death experience in childbirth, and raising toddlers born less than two years apart. All of these things have taught me so much about what taking care of our bodies and learning to listen to them with compassion really means. 

I have lived in multiple countries. I have a deep appreciation for open-minded diversity. I have been a lecturer in seminars, conferences, and classrooms on the gift of pain, and I have taught on multiple continents for many years. 

Enjoying beauty and the outdoors is my evidence that there is goodness in this world, no matter how much pain we have endured - that and salty Dutch licorice, which I love! I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for over 18 years. I have two teenagers, a goofy white Labradoodle, a scraggly garden, and friendships that I deeply cherish.

One of my greatest joys in life is working with people to help them see the beauty and gifts they offer the world. I am passionate about helping my clients learn how to listen to and trust their bodies, developing relationships of gentleness with and enjoyment in who they are.
