I am an embodied therapeutics coach who specializes in trauma informed practices, a yoga teacher and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in training. The backbone of my work is rooted in nervous system health to create more resources for your being when experiencing overwhelm and stress. I have practiced yoga for over 20 years and, for the past decade, I have taught in studios throughout Washington DC, Denver, CO and now Helena, MT. I ran own non-profit providing yoga and wellness services to under-resourced populations, have a Masters in Community Development, and have started the path towards a Masters in Social Work. I have been working with private clients in partnership with local therapists for the last seven years providing somatic support.
In the summer of 2016, I co-founded Free Range Yoga Project taking yoga outside in the beautiful summers of Montana. In conjunction with my weekly Flow Yoga class on Monday nights, I lead a variety of yoga offerings focussed on using these tools while moving through Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and Insomnia along with annual offerings including New Year, New Intention, Goddess Yoga and Winter Solstice workshops. I co-lead an annual Self-Care Retreat for Women in Boulder, MT and work with individual clients.
I have completed a number of advanced trainings in healing modalities including LifeForce Yoga. Street Yoga, Yin Yoga, Thai Yoga Therapy, Reiki I and II, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Movement for Trauma, and Somatic Experiencing Practioner trainings. She continues to pursue tools for applying yoga and movement for optimal nervous system health and body well-being.
