"The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. It is human connection." - Johann Hari
For many people, disconnection is a primary root of suffering. Anya is dedicated to helping clients cultivate greater connection to themselves - meeting and greeting their mind, body, heart, and spirit with greater compassion and understanding; while also finding peace, rest, and relief in the connections shared with others. She is honored to support you in your journey and cannot wait to connect.
