"I believe we have the innate ability to heal our selves. We all have times when we feel separate, disconnected and unworthy. This can cause stress, frustration, anger, vulnerability, isolation, confusion, and being overwhelmed by life. We often need a light at the end of the tunnel to navigate through the confusion and gain perspective. My role is a guide on this personal journey to assist with that perspective and gain self acceptance. My work is an integration of my background in yoga, Buddhist practices and somatic movement that I call "Integrative Yoga Counseling"."
