Our Story Begins Here



If you’re on this page, I’m assuming that you, like many, are searching for some answers. Maybe you’re a new mother looking for support in navigating a monumental life shift, maybe you’re a father looking to strengthen your relationship with your teenage son, maybe you’re an individual searching for a sense of self and have been contemplating how nature can help you reconnect with your roots, or maybe you’re advocating for a child that doesn’t seem to fit into the mold. Perhaps you’re struggling emotionally, maybe your dreams seem hazy and out of reach, and you’re fighting to stay grounded while attempting to reach out to a community that may not exist or have the tools to support you.


I want you to know that I am here and that I was there once. Heck, I’m still there. We are all still there. Throughout our lives, we have been taught a fallacy. As we grow and learn to navigate our roles within a Western, heteronormative, and patriarchal world, we take on the culture’s underlying values of independence, of individualism, of striking it out on our own. We’re told that relationships will fall into place, that parenting and the search for our identity will come easily.


But they don’t. Real relationships take time, effort, and navigation and so does connecting with the natural world. It entails investigating and dismantling. It involves searching inward and reaching outward. It comprises of recognizing the things that do come naturally and nurturing small victories. Like the natural world, humans thrive when we pause, breathe, and reflect while surrounded by the things that connect us to our humanity and lived experiences. Our shared humanity, this link between beings, is what makes relationship building so powerful and this is what comes as second nature to all of us. It is the thread that binds us together.


So, here I am, asking you to grab that thread. Together, we can reflect and debunk. We can strategize and achieve. We can break down and rebuild. We can start over. We can do this again and again until you are empowered and until nurturing your child, and yourself, does become second nature.


First, it is intention.
Then a behaviour.
Then a habit.
Then a practice.
Then a second nature.
Then it is simply who you are.
-Brendon Burchard

Contact me, and let’s take this first step together.


You’ve got this,
