My Story

​Life has granted me a rich collection of events and circumstances through which I have experienced a broad spectrum of suffering and happiness. I humbly recognize my many privileges, and I continue to learn and grow from the unique intersection of diversities that I embody.  


My adolescent history of loss and trauma left me anxious, depressed, and confused. After years of struggling with emptiness and destructive behaviors,  I finally sought help.


I found a psychotherapist whose integrative approach helped facilitate genuine change in my perspective and behavior. The profoundly healing relationship with my first therapist opened my heart and mind to the limitless possibility of conscious evolution, prompting me to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation that continues to this day. This path has led me to influential teachers and therapists, many modes of healing, and now a career in the field of psychology & consciousness. 


While returning to mySelf and finding my place in the world, I felt called to serve others, and began volunteering with various non-profits.  I became involved with the Art of Living Foundation, a worldwide humanitarian NGO, which leads service projects, and teaches meditation, yoga, breathwork, and Vedic wisdom, for stress management, mental wellness, and spiritual practice. Through the Art of Living, I discovered the joy of seva, and the healing power of breathwork and meditation.       


SKY Breath Meditation, the foundational practice taught by the Art of Living, has become the cornerstone of my self care. SKY (Sudarshan Kriya) is evidence-based to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, as well as increase brain function and improve a spectrum of wellness metrics in the body-mind complex.  I find SKY to be an excellent complement to psychotherapy, and a powerful tool to support sustainable conscious living.        


With the help of SKY I became a licensed therapist and an Art of Living Instructor... I am grateful be able to offer these healing modalities to my clients and students, to help others discover more freedom, relaxation, and love!
