Through a magical mixture of nervous system science, dark humor and therapeutic movement, I help people understand their mental and physical ailments and work with them to create practices that set them up for lasting happiness and ease!
As an avid student of healing arts and therapeutic modalities, I have undertaken a lifetime of leadership (and apprenticeship) roles in helping students and community members make incredible transformations in mind, body, psyche and spirit through my work as a Yoga Therapist. I have used and continue to use these modalities and others because they have made tremendous contributions to my own healing and growth. Like any great program, it works if you work it!
My life purpose is to use my perspective and accepting nature to support and guide others who are courageously committing to transforming their lives and overcoming the life-limiting patterns caused by the presence of unresolved traumas and addictions to destructive habits as well as those who are recovering from spinal injuries. I wholeheartedly believe in the inevitability of healing, peace and freedom for all who seek it and commit to the work.
In addition to my work life, I am a student of Christian and Yogic philosophy and spend the vast majority of my connecting to people and making new friends in my new home state of Louisiana! As someone who is obsessed with learning, I have attained several national and international professional certifications including over 1,000 hours of training in Yoga Therapy, meditation and breath-work as well as personal fitness and nutritional coaching. Academically speaking, I hold baccalaureate degree in Dance from Rutgers and a Master of Arts degree in Educational Media from Seton Hall University where I was names Adjunct Professor of the Year (2015-2016) shortly before my move to the deep south! I'm happy to report that I still dance and teach every single day and I love it!
Presently, I occupy my time working with the world's most wonderful private clients, teaching workshops on the science of trauma and recovery for helping professional and facilitating specialized series in yoga for trauma, spinal care and postpartum pelvic floor health.
