Welcome! I am so glad that you found my profile today. You are not alone in your struggle with anxiety, stress, grief, depression, relationship issues, and/or trauma(s), and I am her to help you find tools to heal yourself directly from within. I have been in the fields of psychology and yoga for almost 20 years for each and believe in being of service to others to help them come back to their true and balanced state of being. As an integrative practitioner, my role is to be a present and secure helper and guide for your healing journey. Through compassionate relating, we will work together to uncover and experience the great person you are and have always been even if you have felt weighed down by life.
I am a graduate of a few different, mind-body modality programs, such as Somatic Experiencing (PSEP), Himalayan Yoga and Meditation Center's 200 and 500 hour yoga teacher training programs (RYT-500), Reiki Level II Healer, and Wellness Institute's Certified Hypnotherapy program (CHT). I also have an advanced certification approved by Postpartum International in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. Other holistic techniques utilized in my practice are acupressure for emotional/physical health, essential oils, affirmations, and Ayurvedic principles.
Currently, I am in Embodied Yoga's Applied Polyvagal Theory in Therapeutic Yoga Certification Program. I hope to assist in Somatic Experiencing trainings soon, too.
I own a group practice in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago in Elgin, IL--we are next I-90 and off of Randall Road in the Randall Point Executive Center for easy accessibility. We have a nature preserve along the far side of the property that lends itself to mindful walks and a meditative feel. I have clients from all over the Fox Valley and other regions come to our office but are now mostly using telehealth given COVID-19.
I look forward to hearing from you and possibly working with you as well.
Be well and safe. Namaste!
