Aromatherapy for personal renewal

I offer holistic tools to help you come home to yourself and nurture yourself. This is where well-being starts, and sometimes we just need a little help getting there.

Physical and emotional pain often lead us to seek support. And yet, if we look deeper, we may find that we are in need of feeling whole, that we’ve lost touch with ourselves…and our discomforts might be our bodymind’s way of telling us we need to stop, listen, and tend.

Each of us has a terrain… a way we’re uniquely put together ...

Each of us has a terrain… a way we’re uniquely put together physically, mentally, and emotionally. We need to understand and support that terrain, especially when we are dealing with things that deplete us. Holistic tools like aromatherapy can offer wonderful terrain support.

My focus is on all of you: the part that is physically uncomfortable, the part that is coping with the hard stuff, the part that laughs, that loves, that carries deep mysteries inside, that wants a full and happy life. Aromatherapy can help with the intangibles as much as the tangibles to help you feel more grounded…to feel more like you. When you feel more whole, grounded, and balanced, you live a better life.
