About

I am the right therapist for you if you continue to suffer with depression, anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, grief, unhappiness and a sense of disconnection from the deeper sense of who you are. I will teach you how to feel better about your life with the skills of yoga: breath and meditation; calming your upset or sick body and quieting your constantly negative thoughts. Psychological and medical research support that Yoga, while an ancient philosophy, teaches easy to learn skills that improve physical, emotional and spiritual health. I can guide you to your heart's desire for your life.
I treat trauma whose roots are through child abuse, war, violent assault on the mind and body, domestic violence, etc. I assist you to reduce your anxiety by teaching you how to self-soothe your mind and body without your having to recall and describe your painful past events; thereby, reducing the physical re-experiencing of them in your present life.
Mental Health Yoga Therapy is appropriate for those individuals who want to avoid, reduce or end the use of psychotropic medications often used to treat stress, situational depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Age, body type, limited mobility, illness, or disability is not an impediment for engaging in yoga therapy: breathing and meditation.
