I believe that learning to love ourselves, just as we are, involves accepting our imperfections and vulnerability in a heart centered way. The contrasts that I’ve encountered on my journey have gifted me with clarity and compassion and have allowed me to guide and support others in meeting their life challenges with mindfulness, grace, and strength.
Meditation, yoga, the arts, and exploring Nature are an integral part of my life. These practices and activities have fostered a calm, sustained more meaningful inner state and greater awareness of what I am sensing, feeling, and needing for my well-being. They have also connected me to my inner wisdom.
Working with children, teens, and adults, from diverse backgrounds is my path and passion. I’ve had extensive experience as a teacher, social worker, and developmental therapist. I have also facilitated mindfulness meditation groups for all age levels. I have earned a bachelor’s degree in English and master’s degrees in Reading and Social Work. I am also credentialed as a Gifted Education Specialist, Children’s and Teens’ Meditation Facilitator, and an Infant-Toddler Family Specialist.
