Create a Practice that is Client Centered and Provider First
I provide consultation to therapists and other healing professionals who are looking to create or re-envision a private practice that is nurturing and sustaining for themselves.

I believe it is possible to love your private practice only when you are one of the many people that you care for. Self-care for providers is not something that we do only when we have time, energy, and resources left over; I believe it is the core to our healing power and, therefore, the priority of our practice.
