My work supports building and maintaining physical, emotional, & spiritual health and restores a state of joy through dialogue, mindfulness, movement, and play.
Backed by a rigorous scientific foundation from leading educational institutions such as University of North Carolina, Harvard University, and UPenn, I utilize best practices in my field(s) of study, as well as the practices of mindful self-compassion, cultivating resilience, and gratitude that have increased joyful psychological and physical wellbeing in my own life. My process is accessible, compassionate, and filled with respect and space for others to follow their own inherent wisdom.
As a Duke University Integrative Medicine Certified Health Coach, National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, and Gestalt facilitator my work incorporates a foundation in the neuroscience of change, as well as, various somatic practices. I am an E-RYT® with a foundation in trauma-informed and therapeutic yoga, with additional certifications in Let Your Yoga Dance® (Embodied Positive Psychology), Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra®, Love Light Yin Yoga®, Love Your Brain Yoga®. and Healer Within™ Medical Qigong.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts from Hampshire College (founded when presidents of four distinguished New England colleges sought a home for bold, influential—even radical—ideas in higher education) and have received post-graduate training at Duke University, Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, and The Wholebeing Institute. I am a former teacher & resident of Esalen Institute – the birthplace of the Human Potential Movement.
