...co-creating access to a healing-centered wellness and a fully embodied joyfulness.
I believe in a healing-centered approach to an embodied and integrated practice of well-being. Remembering and experiencing our connection to our bodies, the Earth and to each other are the key elements to a whole state of well-being.
Our physical and emotional states have cycles, just like the Earth. Once we attune to those cycles, we can access healing and expansion in the most natural and fortifying ways. Meditation, movement, music and mindfulness are a few of the modalities that I believe create the highest value across wellness platforms. With my clients, I co-create culturally relevant programs that feel right for them. I believe in a collaborative approach to direct service because we all deserve to express our own needs, in our own voice.
I'm a veteran educator, medical professional, entrepreneur, and consultant who has helped numerous people find wellness in their bodies and spirits. Over the past 30 years, I have had direct experience working with youth, adults, communities, schools, organizations, and corporations. I believe in a collaborative approach to direct service, for the people by the people.
I have a deeply impassioned desire for working directly with individuals 1:1, small groups, whole school communities, and corporate clients.
I am presently available for new clients and organizations that are committed to working toward integrated wellness.
May you experience deep well-being in your body.
May you live in full joy and connection to the Earth.
May you be liberated and safe in this and all moments.
... follow the wisdom gained via practice.
Having had the great fortune to work with and learn from all types of people, have developed a unique ability to identify the cultural and collective energy. Via coaching and consultation, we examine how systems and practices best service the greatest need. We work toward and live into one another's truth. And there, we co-create a plan for well-being, together.

...how are you responding to your life.
...the practice of mindfulness is simple and layered. Bring awareness to what is arising in and around you. Access your breath and internal wisdom to connect with your heart + body in the present moment. Utilize the foundations of breathwork, meditation and rest to uplevel your human experience.
...create and claim the moments of inner calm.
... the body seeks calm in order to find balance. When the mind, body, and soul are allowed to go within, a spacious love can be cultivated, a deep release is possible and a grounding peace is accessible.

...feel your flow in your physical and subtle body.
...like the Earth, our bodies are in flow. Wellness is most possible when that energy is acknowledged, assessed and nurtured. How you choose to move that energy is a matter of self-knowing, present embodiment and innate comfort. Restorative Yoga. Rhythmic Dance.

...experience deep rest and relaxation.
... make the time to rest the body and mind so that they may relax, release and renew. Well-being is a state of balance and good health - a health that is nourished on many, if not all, fronts - physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. Yoga Nidra is a practice designed to allow the body to fully surrender whatever no longer serves it. It is a graceful and joyful way to engage in deliberate selfcare.
