About me

Over the course of my 25-year career as a musician, teacher, and arts administrator, I've cultivated a holistic approach to mindful awareness by integrating music, sound, movement, writing, storytelling, and visual art with meditation practices from multiple wisdom traditions. My interest in the role of artistic expression and mindfulness in health and wellness has led to certifications in Therapeutic Music, RYT 200 Yoga Teacher Training, Trauma & Body-Based Awareness, and Somatic Embodiment & Regulation Strategies. The depth and breadth of my artistry has been fostered by my spiritual journey, which can be characterized by lifelong curiosity, an unbound pursuit of wisdom, and a constant longing to evolve.

HOW I LIKE TO COACH

I like to meet each client where they want to start, and then introduce practices and exercises to address what comes up in each session. New clients are asked to take a personality assessment to learn more about themselves, how they interpret their experiences and manage their thoughts and emotions. Daily journaling and readings are encouraged, along with tracking goals and habits.

PROFESSIONAL AND LIFE EXPERIENCE

My professional career and lifelong pursuits have always revolved around mindful expression: performing, creating, teaching, advocating, coaching, fostering, and exploring.


My background is in the performing arts, teaching and performing regularly with symphony orchestras, musical theatre companies and community arts organizations for 25 years. As a certified therapeutic musician, I served for many years in hospice and palliative care settings, and I have decades of experience working in student services and offering career counseling.


I am an avid writer, with a dedicated journaling practice and experience writing poetry, prose, and technical processes. Since childhood, I've incorporated visual, graphic, and traditional arts as forms of expression - drawing, painting, calligraphy, graphic, web, and database design, photography, furniture restoration, working with textiles, jewelry-making, and gardening.


Over the course of my career, I've cultivated a holistic approach to mindful awareness by integrating music, sound, movement, writing, storytelling, and visual art with meditation practices from multiple wisdom traditions, as well as through studying the Alexander Technique, Authentic Movement, Body Mapping, Dalcroze Eurythmics, Ennegram, and Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education. My interest in the role of expression and mindfulness in health and wellness has led to certifications in Therapeutic Music, RYT 200 Yoga Teacher Training, Trauma & Body-Based Awareness, and Somatic Embodiment & Regulation Strategies.


The depth and breadth of my artistry have been fostered by my spiritual journey, which can be characterized by lifelong curiosity, an unbound pursuit of wisdom, and a constant longing to evolve.
