My focus is on helping folks heal from the effects of trauma. I can help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, attachment trauma, grief and loss, and all the stresses of life that impact all of us. If you’re navigating a tough transition, struggling with setting healthy boundaries, feeling overwhelmed and burned out, having trouble in relationships, or want to chart a new course for yourself but don’t know where to start, I can help.
I am a licensed master social worker (LMSW) trained in eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), attachment theory, ego-state therapy, emotional freedom technique (EFT/tapping), and Reiki, among other evidence-based modalities. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Alabama and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I’ve taught hatha, Yin, and restorative yoga for three years and have practiced yoga for nearly 25 years. I have studied with and learned from Wesley Pilcher, Kayce Johnson, Rena Wren, Lisa Danylchuk, Hala Khouri, Ashley Turner, Jivana Heyman, Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes. I am an RYT 500 yoga teacher with additional certification in Yin and trauma-informed yoga.
My approach to mental wellness is holistic. I start with two guiding principles: first, that the mind, body and spirit are inextricably linked; and second, that none of us is broken. Each of us is whole already, and we have within us everything we need to heal. My goal is to give you research-backed, consciousness-based, practical tools for living peacefully, deliberately, abundantly, and authentically.
