We are inextricably interconnected within the Universe. It is only the illusion of separation that we perceive through our physicality.
Beliefs determine how we experience life!
Our beliefs shape us and shape our reality, they influence the choices we make, the actions we take, and how we perceive everything moment to moment. The “filters" of the limiting beliefs we hold are what separate us from each other.
Beliefs determine how we experience life! The first aspect of the healing journey, in experiencing interconnection with all, is shifting perception within Ourselves.
We are a Spirit within a physical body, the Self.
The Spirit is our center, our absolute truth, it is Source, The Divine. The Self, is the unique expression of The Divine manifested in this reality to adds color to the human collective.
When the Spirit and Self are misaligned, the Self looks for attention and approval from outside sources. Limiting beliefs & programs are what hold us back from being fully aligned.
Only when we perceive one another without distorting filters, in our pure essence as a Creative Source, will we manifest a fulfilled experience in life, not only individually but for our human collective. The experience of unconditional love.

Your truth resides within your-Self.
I am a Life Coach, Meditation Teacher and Healer, and a Movement and Art Therapist. I have worked with families over the past two decades teaching them how to align with their passion and turn their vision into reality.
After working as an architect for over 17 years, becoming a full-time mom and recovering from a family tragedy through meditation, I pursued a new career as a movement and art therapist, combining meditation and healing techniques.
I collaborated teaching and co-leading women’s retreats in the Bay Area & Hawaii for over seven years. I lead a monthly Family Healing Circle in the Bay Area, showing people how to recognize family patterns that won’t allow them to experience life fully. I also work with clients 1-on-1 or in groups. I volunteered at SFUSD for six years working with kids grades K-5, which inspired me to develop a curricula for youth; teaching empathy and self-expression through movement and art (Life/Art Process).
I am a Certified Tamalpa Practitioner in the Life/Art Process and certified RSMT. I live in San Francisco with my husband and my two boys, a 13 and a 10 year old. I am most passionate when playing with children, co-creating with clients, meditating, been in nature, exploring other cultures, new places and playing through movement.
