Be kinder to yourself and then
let your kindness
flood the world

-Pema Chödrön

Welcome! I am a teacher and facilitator of embodied practices for well-being with a background in clinical mental health counseling.

I offer private sessions, workshops, and courses. My areas of focus include:

  • Mindful Self-Compassion, the art and science of treating ourselves like we would a good friend
  • Mindfulness, the practice of being present with our experience just as it is
  • Yoga, a moving, breathing practice for healing, connection and kindness
  • Life Design, a creative, action-oriented approach to crafting a life you love

Embodied Practices for Wellbeing

Self-compassion, mindfulness, and yoga are healing, embodied practices — meaning that they are practiced and experienced with mind, body and heart.  They are meant to be creatively customized so that they resonate with you and within your life. Exploring these practices has many benefits:

We can build a kinder inner world: softening perfectionism and our inner critic; listening deeply to ourselves; relating to ourselves with kindness; learning to soothe mind, body, and heart; aligning our actions with our intentions; managing burnout and stress; reducing fear of failure; and harnessing our inner wisdom and courage to navigate life’s many challenges. 

We can also lead with compassion in the outer world: listening deeply to others; engaging in authentic dialogue and relationships; setting boundaries; confronting bias (in ourselves, and with others); and fueling the fight for human rights.

And, as we engage in this important work, these practices also offer respite, a coming home.

Life Design

Life Design provides a creative framework to intentionally design a life and career that is meaningful, engaging and sustainable. This framework has been hugely beneficial in my own life by providing tangible, practical (even fun!) approaches to trying out the things I dream up. It’s a creative, iterative, collaborative process, perhaps best summarized by the lead Life Designers themselves, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans.

I offer Life Design as part of private sessions. For design-thinking workshops, I collaborate with my good colleagues at Fieldbrook Advising. You can learn more about our upcoming offerings by visiting the Fieldbrook page.

Common Threads

All of these practices center on awareness with curiosity, and learning from direct experience with openness and kindness. I would love to work with you to explore these practices, and their interconnections, more deeply.
