“I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.”
I believe that darkness is an opportunity to find our own true light. Pain is a guide that leads us to be fully present with our experiences and unearth their true meaning and wisdom. We all have the ability to find and know our truth. We hold our own healing and answers deep within ourselves. My role is to provide a nurturing, respectful environment where I stay connected and present with you in this discovery process.
Although this may be challenging and uncomfortable at times, it will lead you to more self-appreciation and self-love in your healing journey.
