A grandfather told his grandson, "My son there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, integrity, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth."

The boy thought for a moment, then asked, "Grandfather, which one wins?"

The old man quietly replied, "the one you feed."


There is an ongoing debate about the origins of the “Two Wolves” story.

Some attribute it to the Reverend Billy Graham, while others say it is an old Cherokee story. I have struggled in deciding whether or not to use this controversial story as the name of my practice.  Here is where I’ve come to:

Regardless of its origins the story resonates strongly with my life’s journey. As someone in recovery, I know the struggles of self-doubt, anger, fear, shame and the drain those feelings can have on my psyche. I also know that overcoming those patterns takes patience, support, and an allowing of one’s truth to be set free. Its in those moment’s where I’ve seen and felt that deep knowing of each of my client’s own genius shining.

Two Wolves is a reminder to me of the darkness, and the light. Where I came from, and where I am going. Ultimately, I create my reality. By taking responsibility, and surrendering to my own truths, each day I become a little more aware of my gifts and purpose.

My practice is one of service, humility, and authenticity. I view the world through a lens of intuition and empathy. My goal for each of my clients is to rediscover their own wholeness by holding the space necessary for them to recapture a sense of power in their lives. Whether it's a kind ear, or a practical tool or framework to approach a place where you are stuck, I am here to support your journey.
