Yoga Therapy for a happier you.

The tools of wellness gave me my life back.

The tools of wellness gave me the ability to regain a life of health and vitality. I am a trauma survivor as well as someone that healed from an eating disorder that began as a teen, a Traumatic Brain Injury in 1996 and the effects of Oxycontin after suffering a major injury in 2011. I deeply know that these tools and techniques changed my life, my body and my mind, and that they can do the same for you.

My areas of specialization include Chronic Pain, Osteoporosis/Osteopenia and Traumatic Brain Injury, helping clients regain mobility, balance and a zest for life.

That is why I am dedicated to wellness…because we all need that helping hand every once in a while.

One breath at a time

Wellness offers us a gift that gives us connection with an inner healer and higher potential that is waiting within to be seen. Connecting to this allows for a positive shift in all aspects of our lives.

That is my purpose…To help you connect with that inner joy, peace and most vibrant, healthy self that is within you, waiting to be seen.

Quoting the famous comedian Lucille Ball, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”

As a woman that runs an organic “funny” farm, I can honestly say that there are moments (such as when a hen poops on my head) when I wonder if what I am doing is making sense, but then I take a big yogic breath and life makes sense again — even if it does stink a little.

So while I’m a big fan of finding calmness even in the midst of being pooped on, I know that it isn’t easy.

That is why I am a Wellness Specialist…because we all need that helping hand.
