It's possible to learn skills to help you navigate life with more peace and confidence! I offer individualized mindfulness skills coaching, which means I will teach you skills that you can use in your everyday life. I will create a customized mindfulness skills plan for you to use daily to reach your goals. I work with both adults and adolescents. I also teach mindful parenting and communication skills for couples.
Research indicates practicing mindfulness can lead to decreased anxiety, depression, anger, obsessions, stress, and addiction. It can also increase self-acceptance, improve sleep, improve immune functioning and overall feelings of well-being
In my personal experience of regular practice of mindfulness and meditation for the past 23 years, I have found that my anxiety lessened, my shame decreased and my trauma decreased. I have found my life to be more meaningful, and that I feel more of a sense of personal power and freedom from my mindfulness practice.
I have taught mindfulness skills in mental health centers for 15 years to clients and to mental health professionals. I have taught these skills to incarcerated teen boys, individuals with addictions, depression, anxiety, eating disorders and trauma. I work with individuals (adolescents and adults) with a wide variety of struggles and goals. The services I provide are mindfulness skills instruction and mindfulness based supportive coaching.
I have received extensive training on emotion regulation and mindfulness skills from one of the world's foremost experts, Dr. Marsha Linehan.
I have studied with meditation masters in Nepal and in the U.S. My first meditation teacher was Geshe Sopa, one of the Dalai Lama’s tutors in India & the first Tibetan lama to become a tenured professor in the U.S. I also studied with Sogyal Rinpoche, one of the most well known Tibetan lamas alive. I studied with Sogyal Rinpoche from his best selling book 'The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying'. I wrote my thesis on how to transform the mind using meditation. I have studied with meditation masters of various religions. I teach meditation and mindfulness skills from a non-religious perspective and can work effectively and respectfully with individuals of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.
I love teaching mindfulness skills in creative and innovative ways. I have spent years honing my teaching skills to assist and connect to individuals who struggle to find inner peace. I am warm, compassionate, easy to relate to, non-judgmental and totally non-pathologizing. My greatest joy is to help clients find ways to apply skills in their lives for increased happiness and peace.
I provide training to mental health professionals and addictions treatment centers on mindfulness skills and meditation practices.
Inner peace is a skill that can be learned.
