“We tend to think of healing as something binary: either we’re broken or we’re healed from that brokenness. But that’s not how healing operates, and it’s almost never how human growth works. More often, healing and growth take place on a continuum, with innumerable points between utter brokenness and total health.”

I will support you in healing through finding a grounded and embodied presence within yourself. I will support you in recognizing that you are your most powerful healer.

I am here to empower and honor your wholeness, helping you to build a deeper resilience and grounded self in the face of injustice, trauma, pain, stress, or feeling stuck.

Crisálida means the transformative process of the chrysalis to a butterfly.
The caterpillar when it is born, is comprised of all it needs to transform into their intended being, and understands innately how to sustain and evolve through their transformation into a butterfly.
When crisálida transforms from one lifeway and being into another, they remain their essential self, though become radically different in how they will live.
Crisálida is the process that happens at the sacred center of our beings, the place we hold our innate power and where we take on the (r)evolution of healing and growth.
I believe you already have everything within you to undertake your healing and transformation and I am here to partner with you in the journey and continue to offer what will support you to heal and thrive.
While your past will remain a part of your story and changes in life remain constant, what you ultimately become, because of, in response to, and in powerful creation with the journey that is your crisálida, will be your greatest becoming.
