Qualifications

I envision a world where each of us has the wisdom and power to act in ways that support our physical, mental, and emotional health. I believe:

  • everyone’s journey is unique and may take time
  • in personal experimentation, curiosity, and self awareness
  • we all need unconditional support and a safe space to explore
  • our health challenges have the potential to transform us, if we listen and work with them to heal.

My career as a Mind-body Wellness Coach is informed by a unique blend of training in mind-body practices as well as in professional mentoring, managing, and coaching of busy professionals. What follows are my official certifications and degrees, which I supplement weekly with continuing education for myself and my clients.
