I created the Marin Stress & Anxiety Center as a response to a deep need in our culture for integrated mind/body solutions to conditions directly related to stress and anxiety. I have spent over twenty years exploring, practicing, and studying a broad range of teachings that have informed my work. In addition to receiving my BA in Interpersonal Communications from the University of Florida and my MA in Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies, I have an extensive background in mind/body practices.

I have been a practicing massage therapist and bodywork practitioner since 1997 and a student of yoga and meditation since 1994. I began teaching public yoga classes in 2005 and continue to teach at YogaWorks in Larskpur, CA. I am currently in studies of yoga therapy with Dr. Ganesh Mohan of Svastha Yoga Therapy, a program rooted in the direct teachings of Krishnamacharya.

My experience practicing psychotherapy has included over three years at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy in San Francisco and positions as a school counselor at both an elementary and middle school in Marin County. Upon receiving my license as a Marriage and Family Therapist in 2006, I began my private practice working with individuals, couples, kids, and teens. I have spent the last few years developing trainings in therapeutic applications of the breath, writing articles for magazines such as Yoga Magazine and Common Ground, and developing mindfulness education in schools.

No one is exempt from having to traverse the stresses of our modern-day, technology filled lives. I consider myself both a lifetime student and teacher, on a parallel path with each one of my clients and students. I am honored and grateful to be able to be of service to others and contribute what I can to make this world an easier and more joyful place to reside.
