I have always been an observer and a freedom seeker. I was drawn into this work nearly 20 years ago from a place of curiosity and that’s how I live my life and do my work… CURIOSITY is what it all comes back to.
I chose this work because I learned through my own struggle with weight and shame that a fully integrative approach is a prerequisite to healing. Along that journey I refused to try to be something that I am not… I couldn’t fathom wearing a suit and going to work in a cubicle cage everyday. I am who I am, what’ ya see is what ya get. I make no pretense and I make no adjustment for it. You can rest in the knowing that I have no objective for you but the one you have for yourself. I have no agenda to push, no path that I want you to be on. I am a facilitator for you to uncover your way and a teammate to help you follow that path to your ultimate self expression.
So if you’re curious about me, here’s a few tidbits about my many sides of self…
My early childhood obsession with comics and the HULK were perfectly "normal". One day I noticed that the transformation of Bruce Banner into the HULK was a perfect metaphor for so much around the human psyche… emotions manifest, the sides of humanity, intellect, rage, heart, protector of inner self, and so much more. I think there’s a little HULK in all of us. I can often be found talking about what your childhood is trying to share with you.
Fate put me on the ice at age 11 and my heart never left the rink. I’ve been an avid player ever since. Hockey is my moving meditation; my place of freedom, speed, expression, and play. Play is such an important and impactful way to connect with your true self. I find play so important to our growth and integration of new information that I include it wherever I can.
Cali born and raised, I’ve always been surrounded by diversity to explore… in nature, in people, and in thought. I was raised to be an observer. At the heart of it, that’s what I am, an observer of people. And in the nearly two decades that I have been studying the interplay of human systems I have observed quite a few things. I think this observation of what’s unique in all of us allows me to release “my way” and be more able to open up the way for you to see and connect with your inner selves.
