I work to support individuals identify and integrate that which gets in their way of connection to themselves, others, and the natural world. I stand on the belief that we all possess the inner knowing of our true nature and that which we need on our own road to health and wholeness. Heartwood is the metaphor I use to symbolize the layers of conditioning and protection we develop that stands between us and the outside world for our protection, but also, at times, to our detriment. The heartwood of the tree is the oldest, most basic part of the tree which is also the richest and most complex. it stands at the center of many years of conditioning, weathering, and adversity. I wish you all the best as you uncover your truest, most basic, and most authentic self at the center of your being, your heartwood.
