A Fresh Start

The key to all change is to be in the moment. Deep change happens when something new arises in you and instead of ignoring it, you let it in and let it grow. Being in the moment doesn’t come naturally. It’s something you have to train. You have to get into a “Here & Now Gym” to build the muscle of living in the present moment. I teach tools that through repetition help you stay connected to yourself, get you centered, and help you launch a journey of self-discovery. As blocks arise we work together to move through them.

Tools to Move Ahead in the Journey

I offer you a set of tools, a method that can help you learn a new path. Unless you get new tools, you cannot move beyond what emotional or relationship skills you already have. You can’t build a garden without a shovel and a rake and seeds, and you can’t build better relationships without a new language of attunement and connection.  You can’t connect with yourself unless you have new tools to explore yourself inside. Without these tools you will get hijacked by your thoughts, by the stories from the past or fears about the future.
