Instructor of Living Foods
In my understanding, healing is a continuous journey towards wholeness which connects us with our deepest fears, our greatest dreams, and our most valuable lessons. If we are able to tap into our inner guidance system, we will know what we need at any given moment to bring us back into balance. This may be about food, movement, a certain form of therapy, or simply listening to our heart. Our challenge is to ride this wave of healing with ease, while continuing to seek a deeper sense of peace and serenity.
My own journey toward healing has led me to the passion I feel for assisting in other people’s journeys. After spending most of my career in the talk therapy field (as a therapist and client), and after completing a Masters in Clinical Counseling Psychology, it became undeniably clear that healing was not just about “talking about it“. Having known this in my heart all along, I finally pursued my deepest desire and entered the holistic health field. I graduated from NMSNT in August of 2005, and spent four years in private practice. During this time I studied many different approaches to healing including Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy and Vital Sensation Homeopathy. I find that what continues to expand my ability to provide space for others is my own continuous journey.
Currently I counsel people who struggle with addiction, attempting to teach them about inner listening, body awareness, breathing and relaxation techniques, and seeking/finding other resources for healing. I moonlight teaching yoga at the Harwood Arts Center, the Living Foods Night Program at NMSNT, and giving integrated bodywork (mostly Core Synchronism, Polarity and Therapeutic Massage), Yoga Therapy, and Thai Massage. I love everything I do, and am very grateful to my clients and students for all they teach me.
