About Me

I believe

... we are born belonging. To life and to the great story of humanity on Earth.

But pretty quickly, we all get banged around in various ways, whether that’s by other people, through circumstance, or by the societal stories that box us in, bruise us and make us feel we don’t quite belong.

I figured this all out the hard way, losing track of myself as a teen, and struggling many long years to find my way back home again. Somehow the societal stories I’d swallowed had me striving for sameness — trying too hard to shape-shift and to squeeze myself into small spaces to fit in — when what I was truly longing for was belonging. And by that I mean true belonging - to myself, to the Earth, and to a loving community of other beings. Having walked this hard road, I could not be more passionate about leaving signposts for others and extending a helping hand. If you feel ready to step off the path of sameness to come home to your own wildly unique and beautiful self, you are not alone.

I may just be the right guide to support you on what may be the greatest journey a human can endeavour to; coming home to yourself and belonging to life again.
