Humans have always needed relationship; deep connections with other humans, animal companions and even plants have been long standing pillars of what helps us humans live 

You are here because your relationships need tending. 



-You and your partner are committed to each other, but something feels stale or dissatisfying. 

-Individual therapy and other self-healing has nourished you, and you're ready to tend to your marriage more deeply.  

- You long to feel seen and known by your partner in a new or deeper way. 

- Between work and children, you and your spouse hardly have time to connect in a meaningful way. 

- The patterns are easy to see, but so hard to change!

Perhaps this is you:

Perhaps this is what you want:

- You can depend on your partners ability to show up for you. 

- You have the skills to be with your own reactions and not act from your wounding. 

- Your personal transformation has awakened new ways of being in your relationships. 

- You can see the differences between you and your partner without taking them personally. 

- Held by a sturdy foundation, your relationship can ride the ups and downs of life. 

Let's work toward that together

Relationships need: 

- Trust

- Honest communication

- Dependable responses

- Balance between self-needs and the needs of the relationship

What is ritual?

Ritual can be the simplest of actions, or an ornate ceremony lasting days. Ritual helps us mark a transition or a desired change, a crossing of a threshold, a container for our emotions, honoring our grief and celebration of life and death. Rituals honor the past, future and the present moment. 

I grew up in a Hindu community, practicing daily ritual, as well as traditional Vedic rituals throughout the year. I have also formally studied ritual with Kaya Mindlin, Laura Vesta, Mark Bockley and Daniel Foor. I am passionate about the element of ritual and how missing it is in your westernized culture. So, I invite you to think of how ritual might support you in creating the life you were born for?
