Several years ago my own personal path led me to study the study of yoga. Having experienced what yoga and mindfulness training did for me, I began to explore how I could bring the benefits of this discipline to my clients. I trained as a yoga instructor at Kaia Yoga and received certification from the Yoga Alliance. Continuing my education and development in the fields of psychotherapy, mindfulness techniques and yoga enables me to stay on the cutting edge, evolving my practice to include treatments, ideas and new techniques. The integration yoga and mindfulness techniques in my psychotherapy practice has come with incredible success for my clients. I have worked with clients with years of past psychotherapy experience who have found these new approaches enable them to breakthrough emotional barriers. Some have found that Yoga Therapy helps them to find a different focus and deeper understanding of themselves and the issues and obstacles they face. As Yoga Therapy is a relatively new and evolving treatment form, I continue to learn and grow. My ongoing coursework includes study in Mindfulness and Relaxation Techniques, Buddhism and Mental Health, and Restorative Yoga.
