In 2010, I embarked on the journey of becoming a yoga teacher. At that time, I had worked with eating disorders for about 3 years and kept running into the limitations of talk therapy in addressing body acceptance issues.
I had practiced yoga since I was 14 and enjoyed many of the benefits that a steady yoga practice could bring. One of the greatest gifts was befriending my body and learning how to be a more loving and conscious caregiver of my body.
I realized that I was already incorporating some of yoga philosophy and the physical tools of yoga to help my clients walk the path to a more harmonious relationship with themselves and their bodies. Becoming a yoga teacher was the next logical step.
Since the completion of my teacher training, I have enjoyed blending the skills of psychology in my yoga classes as well as bringing the tools of yoga philosophy and practice to my work as a therapist. I understand that yoga has been a wonderful support for many but is not the right path for all. I honor each clients preference to include this as a support or to solely focus on the other resources that I have to offer.
