& I'm so glad you're here.
I am a 500-hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance, Usui Reiki Master with an Oncology Reiki certification, Certified Level 1 YCAT (Yoga Therapy for Cancer) teacher, meditation teacher, and integrative nutrition health coach. I am pursuing my yoga therapist certification and am on my way to complete 4 years of training in the fall of 2024! I offer a trauma-informed and yoga therapy approach in all of my work and I am here to support you as you move through your healing journey.
Over the last 12 years, I have devoted myself to healing my own chronic pain and illness and have personally experienced the power of food, yoga and yoga therapy, meditation, and reiki, which is why I believe in them with my whole heart.
I have also tried many different practices and therapies, both Western- and Eastern-based, and see value in every one of them.
As one of my teachers said to me at a time I most needed to hear it:
“Everything has the potential to be medicinal.”
Although I didn’t always believe this to be true, because of what I've gone through, I now believe that everything truly does have the potential to be medicinal. There is no cookie-cutter version of healing. There is no secret pill that fixes everything.
Healing is a different path for every person, so we need different techniques, practices and tools to use throughout the journey.
Some we use for a short time, some we use for a long time, some we use for a lifetime.
My healing path started 12 years ago with changing my diet. By doing so, I was able to heal so much of what had affected me for years–chronic fatigue, IBS, severe anxiety, insomnia and depression–but, after a few years, I felt as if my healing had plateaued.
Then, I discovered a whole world of healing I didn’t even know existed–healing that went beyond the physical body and directly impacted my spiritual and energetic body. This was when everything shifted for me, and continues to shift as I write this very sentence.
As French philosopher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said,
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
Your life, your body, your experiences, your relationships, your career…it is all unique to you, which is why your healing journey will never look exactly the same as anyone else’s and why I like to draw upon every tool, technique and practice I have used and learned in everything I do.
My intention is to provide you with the tools and resources, the encouragement and hope and anything else you may need to THRIVE in your life and feel FREE in your body, mind and spirit. You are worthy of healing, you are worthy of everything your beautiful heart desires and I know in my bones it is ALL possible for you. I'm here to help you make it possible. Let's dive in...together!
