Holistic Wellness Consulting
HI! I'M NAN.
Our work together stands at the intersection of the eastern mind and western psychology. My background in Contemplative psychology + Buddhist psychotherapy (M.A.), Jungian Depth Psychology (PhD student), Gestalt, Yoga, Bodywork, Ayurveda, Indigenous Medicine Traditions, and Dance informs all of the work that I do.
I am passionate about working with individuals in discovery and transition, be that making big shifts, integrating peak experiences, or on the precipice seeking new choice points. I love supporting discovery and the creative possibilities that lead to an expansion of awareness.
This is an invitation: to explore who you are, where you are, and what you want. You may be in disarray and don’t know what to do next or where to start. You may believe in yourself and your own capabilities, and you’re ready to learn more about how to use this wisdom to feel more centered and aware. You may be ready to discover, play, create, and expand into the inherent healing that comes from acts of creativity. Wherever you are in your journey with your self: You’re invited. To expand into a space where we take an embracive view of your life, recognize what is and is not working, and use your embodied wisdom to find the paths and tools that resonate with your deepest, truest self.
HOLISTIC WELLNESS CONSULTING
In addition to various trainings and ongoing studies in the fields of psychology, embodiment, and indigenous wisdom traditions, I hold a Masters Degree in Contemplative Psychology and Buddhist Psychotherapy, from Naropa University; and am currently a PhD student in Jungian Depth Psychology. These perspectives support me in taking a brilliance based lens when working with individuals, couples, and groups--which recognizes the inherent wisdom in all responses to life. With this embracive view, I enjoy being a creative ally, noble friend, and contact point on your journey of deepening awareness, supporting insights, recognizing patterns, and new choice points.
I teach and consult nationally and internationally. My background has been working with high-profile and celebrity individuals, fortune 500 companies, and my clientele ranges from entrepreneurs navigating various phases of startups, individuals needing support integrating peak experiences (from relationships, psychedelics to major life transitions), creatives in a range of expression. I also work with those seeking support unwinding traumatic experiences, to those seeking an ongoing secure environment to inquire, process, and unpack insights.
In my practice, you’re welcome as you are. All of you. This is a space for us to unravel and weave together. It is my intent to hold an embracive environment, where you learn to give yourself radical permission in all circumstances. Learning to embrace that there is nothing wrong with you – even if you think that there is. Part of growth can be learning where you are in pain, and learning what alleviates. Together we can identify your unique needs, develop a wellness plan that might include Ayurvedic inspired shifts, disciplines and practices from Yoga traditions, supports from various mindfulness and embodiment practices, and/or curate a team of individuals who can support you on your healing journey.
My goal in our work together is to give you a safe space and container to feel genuine and heard, so that you may carry that strength and trust of self into your day to day life. This can look like:
Understand how to give yourself permission to be who you are in the world
Knowing how to be heard, seen, and speak from your deepest self
Clear and centered in who you are
Aware of your patterns and choice points.
Informed about yourself, with no pressure or judgment to make changes unless you want to.
Finally allowed to take up space, and understand what that means in the context of your own life.
Unapologetically, beautifully, peacefully you.
we can work on...
your embodied wisdom
Everything in your life has led you to where you are. Together, we will sit with how you are now. We’ll explore how the unconscious adaptive patterns, strategies, and choices you make based on past experiences can become conscious. From there, we’ll embrace these patterns and the ways they serve us, or find new choices to move forward with.
yourself radical permission to be as you are
So often, the people I work with struggle to give themselves permission to have the moment they are having, experience they are experiencing, feeling they are feeling. Radical permission is learning to trust your capacity to handle your emotions while acknowledging the temporary nature of emotional experience. It’s approaching tough days with full confidence in the tools you have to support and regulate yourself. Together, we can grow your capacity and tool box.
internalized and oppressive frameworks
Often, we are reacting to a culture that has lost a sense to the interconnectivity of life, where amazing and terrible things happen every day and there are no rituals or ceremonies to contextualize or process it. In their place, we have indoctrinated and inherited ideologies – capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy, religious indoctrination, racism, heterosexism, and sexism – that cause us deep hurt or disconnection from self and other. Great joy and relief can be found in understanding that there is nothing wrong with you! Together we can identify the inner dialogues. We’ll deeply examine the ways that we are shaped against our will, and choose the ways we want to re-shape ourselves.
personal ritual and ceremony
We’ll examine the importance of routines and rituals, alongside staying gentle with yourself through times of change or busyness. This can look like marking a moment in time with ritual and intention, creating art, making meaning, coming to clarity, and being witnessed. It can also be finding morning routines, interactions with nature, fulfilling time with friends, community, and family, consuming things like books that give the psyche a break, prioritizing rest over productivity, mindfully moving, creating a meal, and maintaining a journal. In a culture that so deeply lacks intentional ritual and ceremony, great peace can be found in infusing the present moment with intention and creating your own.
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
