About 

"What's essential is invisible to the eye"

Welcome! I'm a clinical social worker, yogi, coach, and social scientist. More than anything though I consider myself to be a guide. My life's purpose is to help you reach your full potential by carefully examining the limiting beliefs that keep you from being your best self. 

 

I have a multi-layered understanding of human nature--what makes us tick, what grounds us, and what enlivens us. I use this unique skill set to understand the landscape that is YOU!

 

Whether you're looking for therapy, guided yoga instruction, corporate trainings, or group coaching packages, I can help you dig a little deeper to uncover your most authentic, expansive self.
