Is life feeling challenging to you? Are you struggling in an intimate relationship? If you feel depressed, overwhelmed, anxious or are experiencing relationship conflict, I can help. The truth is that life can be challenging and when this happens, we often get stuck in patterns of thinking or behaving that lead to suffering and pain.Let me be your guide out of this painful place. In our sessions, I take a mindfulness-compassionate based approach towards helping you meet challenging emotions and mind-states in a way that leads to healthier choices. I believe therapy is about bringing clarity, balance and joy back into your life.

As a Certified Imago Therapist, I believe mindfulness, safety and compassion are essential to help partners move from power struggles into intimate and loving connection. Communicating from the heart (listen, understand & empathize with each other) helps both partners reconnect with joy, intimacy and passion which is the foundation of a healthy relationship.

As a Certified Mindfulness & Yoga Teacher, I'll help you connect with inner wisdom and compassion. This helps us heal and reconnect with life, in a way that is balanced and awakens joy. I encourage you to call/email me today. I'll help you create an empowered, balanced & joyful life!

Gentle Yoga

Gentle/Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra Meditation are healing practices that help restore physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is a body-mind-heart approach that helps alleviate and heal anxiety, stress, depression and emotional/physical trauma. As a Registered Kripalu Yoga Teacher, I believe that developing acceptance, awareness and compassion can help us learn to meet life's challenges in ways that restore balance, peace and joy.
