Do you feel safe 
being who you really are?

Maybe you have a foot

in two or more worlds and struggle to be your whole self

in any place.

Or maybe you're a

helping professional who

gives so much to others

it feels like there's

nothing left for you.

It's your birthright to
be seen, be loved
and belong.

Hi, I'm Margie.

I get it. Believing I'm enough and I belong

have been lessons I've worked on my whole life. What I've learned along the way just might help you too.

Come home to yourself.

Safety

Safety is the foundation for trust, confidence and growth. Feeling safe within ourself, with others and in our environment allows us to be at home in the world wherever we are.

It’s our birthright to be seen, be loved and belong. But that's not always our experience, especially for women-identified, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA2S+ folks. Wherever you're starting from, we'll build your capacity to connect with who and what is nourishing to you and your life.

Respect

Respect allows us to accept differences and see the integrity in someone or something not like us. But not all of us have received the respect we deserve. If you have a marginalized identity or belong to more than one culture, it can be challenging to reconcile who you are with others' expectations of who you should be.

It’s possible to respect the people and places that shaped you while choosing what to keep front and center and what to leave in the background of your life. My support can help you discern what is right for you and the people you care about.

Creativity

Creativity naturally arises from safety and respect. You don’t have to be artistic. Your curiosity and intuition will emerge, breathing new life into your work, relationships, and sense of self.

If you're a professional helper, burnout can drain the satisfaction from your life.

Genuine connections allow you to blossom with hope, energy and creativity. No longer trapped by fear and exhaustion, you can move forward with power, purpose and fulfillment.

Reach beyond your burdens.

Connect with life again and 

come home to yourself.
