Hello! I am so happy you found me!
I would love to share with you a little bit about myself, and if it feels like a connection, then I would love to help you free your stress and create a balanced, passionate life just like I have! (It is so important that we work with teachers, coaches, and mentors that resonate with us and really “get” who we are).
I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and have lived in Illinois, Arizona, and Idaho. I recently moved to Santa Cruz, CA and love it! I am a huge outdoors gal and love to go camping, hiking, and traveling. I also enjoy live music, dancing, and socializing with friends (love to go to happy hour!).
I have suffered from anxiety, depression, and insomnia most of my life. In 2004 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and really hit my “bottom” or “dark night of the soul”. I began my journey of healing, trying many western and eastern treatments. I also struggled with the search for my life purpose for so many years, and little did I know that the MS was a blessing in disguise. I became an alternative healing and personal growth “junkie”, and after many years of seeking I came upon iRest. I realized through using this practice that stress was the #1 cause and progression of my suffering and illness. I experienced such life changing benefits from using iRest that I knew I had to become trained and share it with you!
I combine my Occupational Therapy background, iRest/yoga training, mind/body healing philosophy, and my own personal experiences to teach, guide, and support you to free your stress and create balance, so you can live your passionate life.
My passion is to help you discover the underlying cause of your stress, illness, disease, teach you tools to free it, and then support you to take inspired action so you can create the balanced, passionate life you were meant to live! I also provide you with loads of encouragement…
which we all need to make changes.
I also believe in mind/body healing and have studied the teachings of Carolyn Myss, PhD and Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz, among many others, in the field of Mind/Body Medicine. I also believe in doing “shadow work” and have studied this with Robert Ohotto. I will use these philosophies and teachings in working with you.
