Self-Care + Wellness Coach
You may call it your “bad knee”
Or “bum hip”
Or a “cranky low back”.
I call it pain. And you don’t have to just deal with it.

I strongly believe that self-care should address your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. And while I focus on the physical parts more often than not, sometimes our pain isn’t purely physical. Sometimes pain and stress manifest in the form of constant...read more
