Emotional armor gives the illusion of safety, but it blocks the holder’s ability to connect with others, or even themselves. It is also heavy, bulky, and exhaustive. Sometimes it takes all the energy a person has, just to carry their own armor around every day. My mission is to provide an opportunity for clients to hang up their armor at the door, and to be truly seen for an hour. I listen to my clients with passion and reverence. I believe this is how we all want to be heard. My mission is to create a space for my clients to breathe, be curious, and be who they are without suffocation. I guide clients as they develop tools, skills, and daily practices which support them in returning to the world wearing less armor.
