“Change happens when you come home to yourself, occupy your body from the inside out and decide to do nothing but act in your own best interest.”
Combining extensive research in mind-body healing and a dedication to learning and growth, I offer mindfulness based programs to support you in creating a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
In an effort to reduce my carbon footprint and “go green”, I no longer lease office space; instead, I offer 1:1 appointments via phone and Skype.

MINDFULNESS-BASED HAKOMI COACHING: 70-MINUTE 1:1 COACHING CALLS
Do you have memories, beliefs, or deeply held emotions that you allow to define you or keep you stuck? The core precepts of Hakomi are based on the understanding that unconscious beliefs and habits cause much of our suffering and unhappiness. With Hakomi, we gently access those unconscious habits of mind and behavior bringing them into everyday awareness so they can be recognized, modified and healed. During our work together:
- We will work with strong emotions and bound energy, safely releasing them, and finding nourishment in that release
- We will work with the inner child and other specific self-states, often in the context of vividly re-experienced memories, frequently providing the “missing experience” for the child.
- We will process core beliefs in mindfulness, not as intellectual problem-solving, but as direct dialogue with the unconscious
The ultimate goal of Hakomi is the discovery of the possible, the transformation of limiting self-imposed beliefs, and personal empowerment, which results from new freedom and new options.
1:1 coaching calls are $200 per 70 minutes, scheduled at your discretion. A generous discount is offered by pre-purchasing a block of calls. Once you’ve purchased your call(s), you will be emailed instructions for next steps and an intake form to complete and return.
