I have been teaching Mindful Self-Compassion since 2016. In addition to my study and teaching of MSC, I am Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner and faculty assistant. I am certified in Compassionate Bereavement Care®. I have extensive training in body psychotherapies for trauma healing, including Touching Trauma: Touch Skills Training for Trauma Therapists, as well as Somatic Resilience and Regulation, which focuses on developmental trauma healing. I also teach Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT).
I am a student of the cycles of nature and our relationships with other than human living beings. I believe in the practice of slowly opening to our shadows together as humans to access wisdom, joy, and belonging. We can feel our way to deep skills for connection and well-being, imagining liberatory futures. Curiosity is magic. Through this inquiry we can grow to be trustworthy caregivers to our tender hearts. We do justice to ourselves and offer it to our world.
