QUOTE

“My passion lies in doing kind things for others. If just one small kind gesture can help someone, then I feel I am succeeding. I also strongly believe in paying it forward, one kind gesture deserves another. To me, hope means you can always change your way of life. There is always the hope to improve our circumstances. I also feel that hope signifies strength from within, to never give up on happiness, and security.”

Relationships | Nature | Spirit

“I see relationships as an opportunity for deeper understanding, mutual growth, and FUN! We need to feel safe in order to be vulnerable and we need to be vulnerable to truly engage in the power and synergy of relationship. I grew up in the lakes, woods, and rivers of Minnesota and Wisconsin. It only takes 10 minutes in a canoe on the Namekagon river to remind me who I really am, and how I am supposed to be in the world. Nature helps to reset and renew. I have a deeply rooted belief that every aspect of this planet is connected, and I know this comes from a wisdom that is way beyond myself. When I travel through the world with this knowledge at the forefront, and I relax into it, everything seems to be effortless. I strive to relax into this greater experience, to notice and honor the divine in others, peace within nature, and the energy that fuels me.”

     

QUOTE

“I am passionate about supporting the truth as spoken from the perspective of the children we work with. Often times they have much more information and insight than we adults realize. It is important to me that we both maintain their safety and their voice to play a major role in their wellness.”
