Mindfulness Mediation practice has transformed my life in a gradual, gentle but very positive way. It has made me passionate about wanting to share the practice with others.
In my private practice I focus on working with individual adults who are seeking help with stress-related physical and emotional problems, anxiety, panic, depression and chronic pain.
In addition, for the past 30 years, I have presented seminars and workshops to organizations of all kinds, from large corporations to small non-profit groups. The focus here has been to provide education and training in “surfing the stress wave” – that is, balancing the intense energy stirred up by challenging situations with better access to the calm, grounded energy that promotes physical wellness, mental clarity and emotional peace.
