About My Clients

Everyday feels like you’re drudging through quicksand. Like a nightmare you have been trying to avoid since your first encounter. You feel powered down by the confusion. You are not alone. 70% of the population will experience a distressing event in life, and feel symptoms such as intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, and changes in physical and emotional reactions. If you're trying to gain traction, but don’t know where to start, I am here to help.

My Background and Approach

I am a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200)and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I believe that using education of symptomology, deepening understanding through processing patterns, and increasing internal/external awareness through mindfulness practice using a yoga framework, can lead to transformation. I practice from a strengths based, client focused, feminist relational perspective. I believe that all clients have the capacity to heal and should do so in an affirming and supportive environment, which I provide. You are ready for a change and I am ready to help. Call me, and let's work together so you can create the life you deserve to live.
