what really matters to me? 

I want to bring humanity back into healthcare.

I believe 'care' is grounded in dignifying each person. 

I believe the relationship between practitioner and client is the most important and powerful part of how we can support people.

We are perfectly placed to welcome the complexity and wholeness of the people we support.  I am passionate about witnessing each person's story, experiences, and relationships to build knowledge, discernment, and agency.

I want to meet the human behind the pain. I want to sit in their complexity, witness their wholeness, notice threads of connection, reflect on their humanity, and name what's coming up.

Through this, we uncover what's important beyond
the outcome of simply managing pain. 

I help people see their full humanity, name their experiences, and find meaning within.

This facilitated self-discovery cultivates felt sense safety, agency, and discernment that can be taken beyond our sessions and put into practice in everyday life, in relationships, and in other healthcare settings.

Yes, the knee is functioning well, and the pain is supported but with that comes self-discovery and pathways for the future.

Working together our relationship is grounded in connection, curiosity, and exploration. We will nurture our collaboration through transparency, understanding, acceptance, time, and consent so that we co-create a sustainable future. 

This is healthcare that dignifies our wholeness and opens us up to being transformed by each other's humanity.

We think we get over things.
We don't "get over" things.
Or say, we get over the measles
but not a broken heart. 
We need to make that distinction.
The things that become part of our experience
never become less a part of our experience.
How can I say it?
The way to "get over" a life is to die.
Short of that, you move with it, 
let the pain be pain,
not in the hope that it will vanish
but in the faith that it will fit in,
find its place in the shape of things
and be then not any less pain but true to form.
Because anything natural has an inherent shape
and will flow towards it.
And a life is as natural as a leaf.
That's what we're looking for:
not the end of a thing but the shape of it.
Wisdom is seeing the shape of your life
without obliterating (getting over) a single instant.
