I am the Co-Coordinator for Center for Mindful Self-Compassion's Circles of Practice Public Offering where I organize 3 free daily meditations and regular retreats on a global level.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), EMDR Therapy Certified Therapist, Certified Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher, Certified as EMDR therapy Approved Consultant, Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher, Certified in Clinical Hypnosis, and trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). My post graduate work has enabled me to have extensive experience in the dynamic field of mental health, PTSD and other trauma, addiction, personality disorders, dissociation, and Mindfulness. My education has also taken me to China on a couple of occasions where I have conducted research and completed course work in the field of psychology, anthropology, and multiculturalism.
I was also in the first international Teacher Training in Mindful Self Compassion from the Center for Mindfulness at the University of California in San Diego. I have had the pleasure of being directly trained by such distinguished world renowned teachers as Dr. Jack Kornfield, Dr. Tara Brach, Dr. Kristen Neff, Dr. Chris Germer, and Dr. Steven Hickman.
Since I started practicing in 1997, I have worked to empower individuals and their families towards successfully achieving their goals in a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate environment.
