  • MSC Certified Teacher

I am truly, madly, deeply passionate about MSC! It has profoundly changed my inner landscape. I never imagined there was a way to befriend my inner critic. I can now access and choose self-compassion in each moment. This ability to be kind to myself no matter what, is nothing short of a miracle!
