While all of the moon's phases are unique and offer us very helpful energy, the New and Full Moon tend to get more attention because they are pivotal turning points within each lunar cycle. With the New Moon being dark it reminds us of the importance of turning inward, gathering our insights, and dreaming of things we want to bring into our reality (read more about the New Moon here). The Full Moon is big and bright, reminding us of the importance to show up fully in the world and be an embodiment of our hopes and dreams. It is a time to shine, and most importantly it casts light on anything that is holding us back or preventing us from doing so.Read More
The moon (aka Luna) is fascinating and the more I learn, the more fascinated I become. We really can't dismiss the deep connections we have with the moon. This thing affects EVERYTHING, and it's powerful!

"We live between the Act of Awakening and the Act of Surrender..."
In 2012, I began to develop a fear of being in large bodies of water. Odd because I love the ocean and moved from NYC to SoCal to have a "beach life" and absolutely loved growing up so close to the beach in Virginia.

Funny that many of our developed phobias and fears don't make much sense until you lift the hood and dive below the surface. I find that a lot of my fears are simply metaphors for a far deeper stirring that is going on within...Read More
The pain we are all experiencing is enough to bring the strongest of us to our knees and make the sanest of us feel as if we are losing our minds. I was reminded today reading an article, that our nervous systems aren't equipped to handle these chronic states of shock we are all being traumatized by. From devastating natural disasters to mass shootings and hate crimes, our sense of safety is being shaken with tremendous force...Read More
How are you feeling about the way you're meeting your goals?
Did you go full steam ahead only to fizzle out a few days later? I've noticed for years that I did that same thing, so you aren't alone.
So many of us get that big burst of energy, motivation, and inspiration from all the initial hype around an initiative.
So why do so many of us "fall off the wagon" or "fail" at our resolution just days or weeks after we hit the ground running?
One of the biggest problems I see with most of my one-on-one clients is simply being unaware of the things that aren't helping them get healthier.

You'll quickly start identifying habits, patterns, and behaviors that aren't leading you in the direction of your goals; while simultaneously highlighting the things that are!Read More
When I first started my health journey and wanting to eat better the thing that stressed me out the most was cooking! I was never a big fan of the kitchen. I never really had a lot of confidence while cooking a meal. And I definitely didn't really know what I was doing. So whenever I would try to cook, I would just get stressed out.Read More
Why we broke our lease and are moving out of our picture perfect apartment? The short answer is I'm choosing wellness over perfection.
These days, I'm not shy about sharing my struggles with perfectionism and codependency. Those issues ruled my life and controlled me for way too long, and my personal growth suffered in return. Personally, sharing my reality is part of my process.Read More
