“A home should have soul, something metaphorically akin to an embrace.”

~Ilse Crawford

CLEARING. LETTING GO. CULTIVATING.

Tending the Hearth is a unique experience with three parts: clearing physical clutter, healing the emotional layers around clutter, and cultivating sacred space in your home. Together, through a series of consultations, we will clear physical clutter so you can move toward increased clarity to focus on what matters to you most. 

Tending the Hearth is both practical and soulful.

It is an opportunity to let go. To deepen into what enlivens you and allow that inspiration to be the guide in cultivating sacred space.
Sacred space that can nurture your creativity, healing, and presence. Sacred space that can fuel your work, art, and activism.

THE HEARTH

The hearth is the center of the home—the fire that provides heat for warmth and nourishment. It is a gathering of energy, focus, community. We can also see the hearth as the inner fire. The place we come back to within ourselves—our creativity, inspiration, resiliency, and capacity for growth.

Tending the Hearth is not about achieving perfection in your home. A lived life is not perfect.
A comfy, inviting space does not need to be perfect to be inviting and supportive.

This process is about finding beauty and satisfaction in the most simple things. A splash of color. A bowl of cool water. A flower picked from the garden.
It is about energetically clearing out what is getting in the way of having clarity in our day to day lives. It is about creating a space of healing and nurturing in your home that feels like a reflection of who you are and what you care about.


HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

I love being home. I am an introverted, creative homebody. I like to make things special. A little nook in the corner of the room. The space on the kitchen sill you gaze at as you wash the dishes. The little shelf in your bathroom that holds your toothbrush. These are opportunities to create moments of intention and beauty. Simple, potent, and supportive.

I know that home does not feel full of heart and warmth for many people. Our connections with home can bring us back to painful experiences

This is an opportunity for healing….

I know what it is like to feel overwhelmed by clutter….

 




Clearing Physical Clutter

I will help you clear, sort, organize, and let go of stuff.
We will care for your space and the things in it.
This could also include an energetic space clearing.









Shedding the Emotional Layers Around Clutter

I believe folks who struggle with clutter are deeply feeling people. Many folks experience shame around their clutter. Clutter can overwhelm and contribute to anxiety and depression. We will work with your feelings around clutter so you can feel them without being immobilized.

Cultivating Sacred Space in Your Home

Sacred space can be found or created anywhere when we take the time to make something special, meaningful, and connected to our true nature. Sacred space evokes respect through honoring the senses and grounding into beauty. This process does not need to be fancy. We can be guided by what is around us or what we find in nature placed with care and intention.

ABOUT ME

When I was three, my dad, his brothers, my grandpop, and a handful of family friends built the house I grew up in. My parents were teachers so we spent that summer on the land where they were building the house. It was surrounded by dirt and had a spring-fed pond. My mom packed us lunch and we spent many days playing outside while the adults worked.

We moved into that house with more than half of it still bare wood. My dad spent the next two years finishing it at night and on weekends. We were surrounded by sawhorses, the smell of fresh sawdust, and creativity. My mom made this house a home as she adorned it with stenciled walls and warmth.

All of this made a huge impression on me. My childhood home is still one of my favorite places on earth to be.

I am a holistic counselor, soulful guide, and artist. I hold master’s degrees in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology and Women’s Spirituality and certifications in clinical hypnotherapy, emotional freedom technique, and reiki. I work with folks struggling with anxiety, overwhelm, critical thoughts, and unresolved trauma. 

This offering brings together so many of my deep loves in life. It is an offering of my heart, soul, and presence. It is my honor to join you in your home.
It is my pleasure to help you create sacred space that reflects your true nature, allows for deep healing, and supports your life.

Let’s discuss how I may be of service to you.
