I'm a Registered Nurse, Board-Certified Nurse Coach, and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in Tucson, AZ.
I care for the caregivers who have put themselves last on their to-do list for far too long, helping them to manage the daily and chronic stressors that get in the way of them enjoying life.

If you are someone who cares for other human beings at home or at work, working with me can help you to
After graduating from the University of Arizona College of Nursing in 2008, I spent ten years in hospital nursing, spending time in cardiothoracic intensive care, infection prevention, and professional practice. In 2019, I graduated from the International Nurse Coaches Association's (INCA) nurse coach certification program, became a board-certified nurse coach, and began my wellness coaching practice. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I am trained in trauma and nervous system healing, through which I help my clients reconnect to their bodies and to their life force. Additionally I am a Certified HeartMath Provider and Senior Faculty for the INCA's International Nurse Coach Academy program through which I guide and teach future nurse coaches.
I am (she/her) a nurse, a mother, a partner. A caregiver and a healer. And I'm just like you- someone who has put themselves in the backseat of their own lives to take care of those around them. I am someone who experiences chronic stress and wounds that have impacted their whole being health, vitality, and quality of life. I am on my own healing journey, slowly stripping away the conditioning and fears I've collected in my decades as a human.
I am a systems-thinker, which means I value the WHOLE big picture. Everything affects everything. As a result, I work from a systems-based, integrative approach to whole-being wellness. While certain behaviors like self care, nutrition, exercise, and sleep can play an important role in our wellness, there are often other players getting in the way of achieving one's definition of health that are not entirely in our control. Factors like trauma and stress, self worth and shame, systems of oppression, mental and emotional health, finances, and community care are a part of a much bigger picture. If you work with me, you can expect to explore what might not be on the surface.
