I am a therapist in training and yoga instructor who helps individuals from a holistic perspective with a combined experience of 7 years using various theoretical models. My current focus incorporates an emphasis on mindfulness and being gentle with ourselves to promote healing.
The two tenets that guide my work are the ideas that everyone deserves care and respect and that my role is to help you, the expert on your own life, solve the problems and overcome the obstacles that are holding you back from achieving the best version of yourself.
