About Me

Hello! I'm Andrea and I’m so happy you’re here!


For as long as I could remember, I couldn't shake this feeling that there had to be a better way. Something I was doing just wasn't working and I couldn't figure out what that something was. To put it simply, I was desperate to become "unstuck." It was experiences like these that gave me the courage to ask for help and ultimately led me to this space. 


In my work, I support individuals who are experiencing anger, anxiety, depression, stress, and difficulty with self-acceptance. In such a fast-paced society, it's easy to feel like we can't keep up, balance it all, or simply feel at peace. Many of my clients tell me that they feel exhausted trying to manage everything on their own and that they're struggling to cope with everyday life. If this sounds like you and you want to get "unstuck" you're in the right place. Together, we'll work towards creating new embodied patterns that will support you to live an authentic life.
