ABOUT YOGA THERAPY

With over fifteen years experience as a mindfulness-based practitioner, yoga teacher, and yoga therapist, I approach psychotherapy from a mind-body-spirit perspective. My work is individualized and client-centered positioning you as the “expert” in your life.

Through guided meditation and visualization, assisted yoga poses, bodywork, and dialogue, you will be gently invited into the experience of the body where emotions live. Exploring the connection between the emotional, physical, and spiritual selves while in a state of relaxation can offer insight and healing for chronic stress, physical and emotional pain, anxiety, grief, and trauma.

The art of happiness is also the art of suffering well.

YOGA THERAPY EXPERIENCE

My work is based on Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy through which I became a certified practitioner over 15 years ago. My approach to yoga therapy continues to be informed by Peter Levine’s work in somatic experiencing as well as the spiritual teachings of Krishnamurti, Pema Chodron, Thich Nhat Hahn, Joseph Campbell, Jack Kornfield, and others.

My intention is to invite you to slow down, tune in, and explore your quieter and oftentimes, wiser self. It is human to struggle because let’s face it–life is tough. We can easily feel overwhelmed, trapped, fearful, angry, and sad as a result of living in a fast-paced, stressful environment. This reality coupled with depression, anxiety, loss, traumatic events, or addiction issues can often sap our resources. As a result, we can easily lose sight of what is important to us and feel a dampening of our spirit.

MY PHILOSOPHY

It is my honor to accompany you on your journey in therapy. For me, this isn’t just a vocation but a deeply fulfilling and humbling opportunity to connect from a place of spirit. Once you become skilled at aligning your life with your spirit, you will feel energized, more open, and lighter almost immediately. In order for this shift to endure, you will need to continue to tap into your inner self and allow it to increasingly guide you in all that you do.

I will suggest ways for you to stay connected both through simple, daily rituals and through exploring deeper issues that lead to more authentic life choices. Remember, the goal is not to keep you in therapy forever, but to help you spread your wings and fly.
