My approach to therapy focuses on the integration of psychology, mindfulness, compassion, neuroscience, and somatic practices to alleviate suffering. Based on your particular needs and preferences, we can approach the work from a psychotherapy framework with a greater emphasis on dialogue, or from a yoga therapy perspective that emphasizes working with the body.


If you are interested in developing mindfulness- and compassion-based skills within the context of a supportive learning community, I invite you to explore available courses designed to help build emotional resiliency, lower levels of stress and anxiety, and enhance overall wellbeing.
