With over 25 years of experience as a wellness professional, I counsel and coach, teach yoga techniques, and help people develop a relationship to sitting meditation. I’ve founded yoga programs in numerous situations around the world, and advise clients on practices to incorporate successful programs into existing hospitality venues. I began practicing Ashtanga yoga with Richard Freeman in 1992 and spent 10 years studying intensively and eventually teaching with him in Boulder, Colorado. After spending a year studying with Sri Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, South India, I was authorized to teach Ashtanga yoga. I currently offer individual counseling and coaching sessions that will take into account your current situation and where you want to be. The work includes traditional therapeutic techniques, but without the burden of dredging up historical details. Contemplative psychotherapy is a model that works in the moment, identifying the present circumstances and emotions in order to fully embody whatever change wants to take place. Only by staying fully present and embodied can we move cleanly (in other words, without baggage) from one experience to another.
