Announcement icon Feeling confused, fearful, anxious or hopeless? During this time global crisis and physical distancing, I am offering Teletherapy sessions.
Beneath all of our disappointments, losses, and heartbreaks, we all want to be valued for who we are, accepted for how we feel, and respected for what we think. I will encourage you to cultivate present moment awareness and self-compassion for the painful difficulties, challenging life circumstances, and to the inner narrative that keeps you stuck in habitual patterns of reacting. While fear and doubt may obscure your perspective, we will work together to help you develop strength-based skills and capacities for moving through challenges. I will help you access your inner wisdom for cultivating trust, balance, clarity, & connection.
I use a mindfulness-based approach that helps you develop skills and tools to loosen the grip of overwhelming thoughts and worry about the future and soothe feelings of regret and sorrow from the past. Learning to live in present moment awareness empowers you to embrace all of your life in each unfolding moment with greater acceptance, aliveness, and peace.
My training in Mind-Body Medicine, CBT, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, meditation and yoga therapy and work in private practice, clinics, schools, psychiatric wards has provided me with a diverse set of clinical skills that relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, attentional challenges, grief, and relationship issues.

More about this group

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep or lucid sleep, is an ancient practice that is the perfect antidote for today's stressed and fast paced life. It can induce full-body relaxation and a deep conscious meditative state. Yoga Nidra uses guided imagery and body scans and is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing your physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs. Yoga Nidra quiets the overactive conscious mind, inviting you into meditative states of deep contentment and equanimity. When brain waves slow down to a delta state, a subtle euphoria can occur.

Insight Meditation of Baltimore (Live-Virtual)

Insight Meditation helps the mind attain deeper levels of calm concentration through sustained attention on the breath, then combines this with the crucial aspect of insight through contemplation of the mind and body and all of their changing and impermanent senses, emotions and thoughts. Insight Meditation trains you to live more fully in the present moment, enables you to experience life from a greater stillness, and aids in relating to both yourself and others with increased clarity, compassion, calmness and creativity, less fear, anxiety and stress. Benefits include reduced stress, anxiety, & increased focus. https://imcw.org/Calendar/Event-Calendar
