to transform their stress, fears and self-doubt in order to realign with their inner selves and fully live life with meaning, purpose, all in accordance with personal values ~ with science, with soul, and with heart.
As an experienced clinical psychologist, trauma-informed mindfulness, meditation and yoga instructor, and Ayurvedic doula, I have developed expertise in a diverse range of Eastern and Western healing modalities to offer women personalized paths to holistic growth and transformation. I believe that we all have an innate capacity for empowered and resilient living, and with the right combination of support, tools, and commitment to taking steps toward change, growth and transformation are always possible, regardless of how ingrained our thought patterns and habits may feel.
In this program, I use a holistic approach that skillfully integrates evidence-based tools from psychological science and complementary and alternative medicine to help women go from feeling overwhelmed and controlled by fear, doubt, loss, and self-criticism to fully living life with meaning, purpose, and in accordance with their values.
My approach blends science-informed knowledge from psychology with wisdom from holistic and integrative healing to offer curated strategies that have dramatically changed my life and resulted in transformative experience for the women with whom I have worked. I believe in the benefits of all of these tools and their powerfully synergistic effect when used together.
