Connect & integrate your mind + body + soul

Empowerment & Embodiment through integration of mindfulness based movement, interpersonal neurobiology, epigenetics, energy psychology & vibration healing

I passionately help people create new physiological, emotional, and cognitive responses to live life in a new way.


Integration of techniques.


I incorporate interpersonal neurobiology, epigenetics, TCTSY, Brainspotting/hypnosis, EFT, energy psychology, energy medicine, mindfulness training and meditation to assist people in their personal transformation.

I work with children, adults, couples, and groups.

People work with me to transform their experiences of anxiety, depression, sleep, stress, trauma, self-sabotaging behaviors, performance anxiety, athletics, as well as for spiritual development, and to increase self-worth + life satisfaction and increase consciousness.

One of the key ingredients as I work with people is to teach them about Embodiment. We can cognitively know information, but until we have a felt sense experience of it, our life doesn’t shift or transform.

It’s like knowing what might be healthy to eat yet continuing to choose other options because their isn’t yet a felt sense connection, or embodiment, of the type of eating habits you’d like to practice.

Experiential learning is a part of every session and every class I teach. Want to join in the Women’s Embodiment Course? Or do you prefer to start by working together one-to-one and want to schedule an initial session or complimentary consultation call?

What about Joy + Happiness?


Joy + happiness + gratitude are higher vibrating emotions. Meaning, when we are experiencing these emotions we are vibrating at a higher frequency. All emotions have their own frequency, and we can become patterned to tune into and experience a full range of frequencies. Shame and guilt are some of the most dense and low vibrating emotions there are.

So what do most of us do about that? We distract ourselves from feeling it because when we do actually let ourselves feel them it feels so bad. What if you were able to be aware of and change the vibration of your frequency? Together, we can growth your consciousness and raise your vibration so that more joy + happiness can be experienced.
