A former higher education professional and "recovering perfectionist," I combine the techniques of yoga, various spiritual practices, mindfulness, meditation techniques, and my background in adult learning into my wellness coaching and yoga instruction.

While I work with mainstream students who come to get more flexible or gain core strength, I most often work with people seeking complementary practices to better manage emotional, mental and physical issues. Conditions I am familiar with and clients I have assisted include:

  • Trauma/PTSD 
  • Ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Physical restrictions and/or disabilities
  • Chronic pain
  • Mood disorders in adults and children (anxiety, depression)
  • Autism Spectrum
  • Cutting
  • Advanced age/elderly
  • Eating disorders ("ED's")
  • I also work with local high school swim team athletes to increase their flexibility and core strength.
