I have worked for over 20 years in the field of behavioral health. My journey began as a fairly traditional clinical psychologist working in a variety of community based mental health and substance abuse programs, as well as the military setting. As I have studied and learned from my clients, I have deepened my understanding of the relationship between our emotions and our bodies. The traditional paradigms of health no longer work for me. I felt frustrated in what I perceived as limitations in being able to inspire individuals to optimize their health. I believe there is an intimate connection between emotions that become trapped in our bodies and what shows up as our physical health. Now, using my background as a clinical psychologist, yoga instructor, and energy worker I coach clients through personal journeys to enhance physical and emotional energy for general stress management, release of past emotional traumas to enhance physical health, and create lives that include more joy and creativity.
