I work with people who are temporarily overwhelmed by life. My specialty is working with people who are experiencing challenges with life transitions and/or mental health: symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma or other stress.
I help people develop a deeper awareness of what’s happening in the moment so they have the clarity and insight they need to achieve their current goals. Together, we use dialogue, movement or supported postures, breath-work, gentle encouragement and new awarenesses to explore what’s present and tap into their strengths to make a change.
I started practicing yoga more than 20 years ago, and since then I’ve witnessed huge transformations in myself; these transformations have shaped my well-being, relationships and my view of the world. As a licensed clinical professional counselor, I’ve experienced the benefits of mindfulness & breath work with many clients; this encouraged me to shift my current focus from psychotherapy to wellness coaching and yoga-based practices. My goal is to help as many people as possible live their best life!
In addition to my love of yoga, I love being outdoors. Whether it's on the beach, hiking or relaxing in my hammock garden I'm likely to be found outside.
Before starting Wellness Coaching or Yoga Therapy, I like to see clients for a Discovery Session. The Discovery Session provides an opportunity for you to learn more about what I do, while sharing more about what your needs are. We go over initial paperwork, we dive more deeply into what’s bringing you in for services, and you experience a taste of a yoga therapy session that’s based on your individual needs.
Yoga therapy sessions are aimed at getting you into your body, creating a climate where you can explore what’s happening in the moment and how it relates back to the way you are currently living. At the end of the session, it’s all pulled together with an integration, which provides the space for establishing next steps. At the conclusion of the yoga therapy experience, time is left to review what’s possible in this work and the options for getting there.
Discovery Sessions are private and last about 75-90 minutes. Cost is $150.
Experience with yoga is not necessary for this service to be effective.

Wellness Coaching is designed to support you in living your best life. Are you ready to make a meaningful life change? Are you feeling stuck, going through a life transition or feeling overwhelmed and not sure how to cope? Then, Wellness Coaching might be for you.
Wellness Coaching (WC) sessions combine coaching, mentoring and counseling, with the option to include yoga, yoga therapy and meditation. Self-exploration and deepening awareness are integral parts of the WC process; we use check-ins, body awareness, guided meditative experiences, dialogue, movement and action steps to facilitate the process of achieving your goals.
What makes WC different: there’s more opportunity for digging deeper and there’s more emphasis on accountability, there’s more checking in, both before a session and between sessions, there’s more guidance around action steps, and attention is placed on progress.
WC is different for everyone, so it’s hard to say what the experience “will be like.” Your experiences in the moment, as well as, what’s happening in your day-to-day life will likely impact what happens in the session. WC is about working toward the kind of shift that does not happen overnight. Together, we define the change that needs to happen, we work on implementing action steps that help facilitate change, and you have an opportunity to embody and fully integrate the change into how you’re living.
Wellness Coaching sessions are private and last about 60 minutes.
Sessions are sold in packages of 3 and cost $375.
Sessions are available both in-person and over video chat (Zoom).

In a yoga therapy session, we use movement, guided meditative experiences, supported yoga postures, empathetic listening and contemporary body-mind psychology to facilitate self-exploration. You’ll explore physical sensations, thoughts, feelings and emotions that may be contributing to patterns that get in the way of living the life you want to live.
Like wellness coaching, the yoga therapy experience is different for everyone; because of this, it’s difficult to put into words what the experience “will be like”. Some people notice physical experiences, while others notice emotional ones. It’s my job to help clients explore whatever is coming up; this gives clients the space to discern the meaning for themselves.
Yoga therapy sessions are private and last 60 minutes. Sessions cost $100.
