Nature Based Soul Work

Nature-based Soul Work is advanced self-growth work, with sessions designed to take you further into your process of healing to deepen your mystical relationship with nature. Nature-based Soul Work is not psychotherapy, but rather, a process of deep self-discovery, one that embraces healing and the embodiment of your unique soul gifts. Nature-based soul-centric healing is much more than managing symptoms and feeling better so as to get back to your daily life. The process of healing is a portal into the divine nature that resides at the core of your being.

When you go through the process of discovering and embodying your innate wholeness, you become resourced enough to walk into the depths of the alchemical transformation of the soul. You will cultivate the internal resilience, wisdom, emotional capacity, and imagination that leads to a life of deep meaning and soulful purpose.

My healing journey is an opportunity to go deeper into my own divine beauty. The journey has not come without fear, terror, and adversity. Early on, I often found myself lost in wounds and hijacked by protective strategies such as addiction, anger, and self-criticism, all which kept me safe and small. I stood on the edge of tremendous fear when my physical health wavered. Only to discover that my physical illness was a manifestation of my deeper psycho-spiritual condition. When I shifted deeply my psycho-spiritual condition I was able to shift my physical body as well as my psyche. The negative patterns that held strong throughout my early life dissolved during my alchemical journey to Soul encounter. My ego strengthened and became in service to

Soul and Mystery. I discovered my own unimaginable potential, a lifelong process that continues to unfold. I’ve become an agent to something deeper in the world and within myself.
My relationship to my parenting, work, and friendships have drastically changed, and I hold the intention that each day is an act of prayer and meditation. That there is a bigger conversation happening between the depth of the world and of myself. It is through this conversation that I find meaning, purpose, and joy in my life.

My healing journey has not been about managing symptoms or feeling better to get back to the status quo. Rather, it has been initiatory process that awakened me to my own poetic story and its place within the larger story of the Earth and Cosmos.

My journey cannot be done without the support of soul initiated guides and teachers, which is why I have dedicated my own life to the craft and artistry of guiding others along their own journey. My work is not a job, rather, a devotion to the deeper calling of soul-centric healing and service to all life.

For the last decade, I have wandered through the inner and outer wilderness learning of the deeper conversational dance of life where the longing of the World is in conversation with my Soul. This conversational dance has coaxed out of me the poet, story teller, guide, and other unique gifts.

My passions lie in the enchantments of the natural world and guiding you in cultivating a deep self-knowing that supports the wisdom of your Soul in its entirety. I believe in living a soul-directed life of mystery, longing, love, and creative expression. I have a deep love of the animate natural world, eco-deep psychology, movement, mindfulness, ceremony, and rites of passage, which I will use to support you in the process of healing and deep self-discovery.

I surrender myself to the deeper mysteries of our existence, walking the path as guide and student. In this way, I can facilitate you in a journey of depth and longing, not alone, but as an agent of Soul, Mystery, and the Earth’s intelligence.
I will provide you with practical tools that I gathered along my journey so that you can more fully embody your innate wholeness, vitality, and unimaginable potential.

Let me guide you on a journey to the wild edges of your longing.

It would be my honor and privilege to guide you along your own unique path to Mystery and Soul.
