My practice philosophy focuses on assisting clients to find balance in their lives. This definition of balance varies from one individual to the next. When we lead balanced lives, we are better-equipped to withstand the storms of life which include relationship issues, being stuck in the past or traumatic life transitions. In order to achieve this, I build honest, trusting relationships with those who sit with me. I believe in an integrative approach which cultivates mindful awareness – enhancing emotional balance and resilience.
Beginning to foster an understanding of meditation at the age of 9 and developing my yoga practice over the years have shaped me personally and professionally. These practices continue to serve as daily teachers, consistently guiding me back to the essence of who I am. I have specialized training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (Jon Kabat-Zinn), Trauma-Focused Yoga and Yoga for Mood Management. My work as a Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapist is fueled by an inner pull to assist others as they cultivate love, kindness, and compassion – within themselves and in their relationships – through healing, skill-building, and deep personal growth.
