About

 

Being in the entertainment industry for a few years, I realized, that my passion for mindful living began amidst the chaos of being a publicist for high profile celebrities and brands. The constant pressure, urgency, and balance of image and identity fascinated me, but I knew it was not meant long-term for my sensitive and introspective soul.  This way of life was then followed by a second career in the healing arts doing energy work and therapeutic massage. While hands on healing was a wonderful modality, my passion for words, stories and meaning making gave me the desire to go back to grad school, and finish my 3000 hours toward licensure as a psychotherapist. I believe in synchronicity and the flow of life, and am now grateful to draw upon my past careers to inform my current private practice. I truly believe that everything happens for reason and to trust the timing of life.

 

I draw on the experiences of my past to inform my work. Being a dancer in my early years, Iā€™m very aware of the importance of body posture, breath work, and movement. Emotions and memories are stored in our bodies, effecting how we show up in the world on a daily basis. It is vital to learn about how your express yourself, how you experience your feelings, and how that impacts your behavior/relationships. How can you create change unless you first take a non-judgmental look at yourself, learn about why you do what you do, and then decide what you would rather be/do/have? How we show up in our minds, bodies and relationships has a huge impact on our emotional wellbeing.
