"We are all born with a desire for life to feel good and to be happy. Just as resources of all kinds are offered to support the health and happiness of our bodies, I offer the resources to support your mind and soul. All of us are the product of the choices we've made in response to the circumstances of our lives. A desire to feel better is the driving force behind every choice you've ever made.
A Buddhist teaching is that "all suffering is caused by desire." This is true until you also understand that your true desires are't things, but a need to feel better. I teach balancing how to CREATE your desired feelings with the POWER of loving where you're at until you get there.
From grieving to gladness, depression to delighting, anxiety to assurance, I find so much joy journeying with my clients as they heal."
