Body Image Concerns
Low Self Esteem
We look at the link between your mind and your physical body. Using compassion as a foundation, we help you heal that connection and re-learn your body's messaging. We believe that once you learn to recognize your body’s needs, you’ll be better equipped to meet those needs in a healthy, functional way.
We work collaboratively with your doctor, massage therapist, physical therapist, chiropractor or others on your healthcare/selfcare team.

Do your friendships feel one sided? Do you keep dating the "mistakes"? We can help you recognize and change unhelpful emotional habits and thinking styles. Forming and maintaining boundaries is a truly life changing skill!
The secret to motivation can be found in understanding your true needs and embracing your strengths as well as your weaknesses. Stop working against yourself! Motivation flows when you discover your values.
Anxiety can make it difficult to get through the day and impossible to sleep at night. Learn how to understand and manage anxiety and free yourself from the hold it has on you.
Your mental & physical health are linked.
"Just try harder" is not a sustainable, long-term strategy.
"Exercise more and eat less" does not work on a practical level.
Focusing only on diet and exercise leads to frustration.
Most of us have years of evidence to support this.
"Willpower" eventually fails us all. Self-criticism and shame are not great motivators. Instead of recycled, outdated (and frustrating!) approaches to health & behavior change, you will find a different philosophy here. Self-compassion can cultivate the curiosity that will allow you to find your own path to wellness and a positive body image -- for good.
What you eat & how you exercise is unique to you & varies over time. You do not need to feel bad because you’re not doing what someone else is doing. Instead of feeling guilty, we can help you learn to use that energy to identify your own needs and truly take care of yourself. We look at each individual from a holistic perspective that includes physical, social, and psychological needs.
If you can figure out how you really feel,
you can figure out what you need.
If you can figure out what you need,
you can find a less caloric way to meet that need.
Exploring the Shadow
Discover your shadow isn’t so dark. We all have one–a shadow self–the unconscious and denied facets of our personalities. Cuddling up to the shadow may seem counterintuitive, yet it is a source of freedom from anxiety, trauma, anger, physical illness and pain, eating and body concerns. Your shadow is funny, creative, smart, and protective.
We'll keep you updated on new classes and workshops and will never, ever, ever sell your email address.
