I like lists.  I like collections.  I have bits of paper everywhere with lists, ideas and humbling thoughts jotted down on them.  Here are some of those bits & pieces that may give a sense of how I might support and create space for the full self-expression of your child.

On me:

  • leans on creativity and nature to soothe
  • leads with intuition
  • encourages victories
  • facilitates joy and connection
  • embodies seasoned fierce wisdom and humility
  • embraces my neurodivergence
  • notices and listens to senses and sensation
  • gives grace to being a beginner every day, every time, all the time

 On what I value:

  • learning from collaboration, beautiful mistakes and experimenting
  • reverence for nature and the land we live on
  • deep engagement  

On our time together:

Our journey is about unfolding, and discovering who we are.  In play.   In quiet.   In allowing.

In full self-expression. Being held in unconditional positive regard and inherent worth. There is no set destination, no achievable end point on this path; it’s about the journey itself, and being together.

  • discovering how we feel
  • noticing what we notice. noticing what we find beautiful and what sparks awe
  • following our hearts and what we find interesting
  • expressing what lives in our bodies
  • finding joy 

Our touchstones will be compassionate witnessing and presence.  It is my privilege to be granted the sight of the essence of another. To walk with them, to believe them. To bask in their particular wonderfulness.
