I'm a licensed social worker utilizing a holistic and integrative approach to whole person wellness. I've been vegan for over 10 years, have been practicing yoga since 2007 and teaching since 2012. I found yoga at exactly the right time, when I was undergoing major shifts and challenges in my life. My yoga practice sustained me through this time and I am grateful I found my practice with its benefits to my mental, emotional and physical health.
I am certified as a Grief Yoga Instructor because I recognize the importance of feeling and expressing emotions related to losses we experience as part of grief work, and the importance of being witnessed and held safely while in this vulnerable state.
I facilitate Reiki sessions, a supportive Japanese healing art. Reiki is like a massage for the aura or Spirit. If you've never tried it, I highly recommend!
I trained with three Master Gong teachers and have been playing the gong in my community since 2013 and have been certified in Gong Therapy, a one-on-one personalized therapeutic practice since 2018. The gong's magic must be experienced!
I have been studying and practicing herbalism for over 10 years, in the Ayurvedic tradition, Southern folk medicine tradition and Western herbalist traditions. I am certified as an Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor, Family Herbalist (Southern Folk tradition) and Herbal Apprentice (Ayurvedic and Western traditions). I love offering herbal consultations to assist those experiencing health or wellness distress.
I live in Bethel, VT with my wonderful husband and our spoiled rotten fur-baby.
