Like many healing practitioners before me, I came to this work through my own process of healing and transformation. This led me to an all-encompassing journey to bring me into alignment with my own wellness.
I have engaged in and studied many various healing modalities and wisdom traditions. I have been practicing Buddhism and Mindfulness Meditation since 2006, including 2 ½ years of living in monasteries and retreat centers engaging in intensive meditation. I am trained in Somatic Experiencing, a body-based therapy that works with clearing trauma and PTSD. Since 2014 I have been training in Infinity Healing Practice in Amherst, a unique blend of energetic healing, neural science techniques, and intuition. Along the way, I have also studied and practiced Internal Family Systems, Five Element Chinese Philosophy, and Qigong. Living in and cultivating Intentional Community is a passion of mine, along with the skills of conflict resolution and non-violent communication.
I have been learning and cultivating various aspects of Wellness Coaching the past several years, and am continually working to better refine what is effective for our health and wellness. I not only apply what I’ve learned through training, but also what I have learned in my own personal journey. I have particular expertise in working with chronic illness and trauma.
I am originally from Phoenix, AZ and my former life and career was as a filmmaker living in Los Angeles. I've lived in the Western Massachusetts and Northampton area since 2011.
I feel so grateful to be doing this work, and to receive such joy and inspiration from helping others on their path to more wellness!
