After 11 bustling years as an entrepreneur in NYC, I was left
feeling disconnected, unfulfilled, and craved for something more.
In 2011, I met a teacher in Bali and began a deep plunge into healing through Yoga and Ayurveda. There, I spent the next 2 years in a deep practice of listening, (un)learning, nurturing, and harmonizing. This was the most pivotal and (r)evolutionary time for seeding and experiencing what true embodied health is, and could be.
Since then, I have devoted my days to supporting body-mind integration, empowerment, and somatic education through trauma healing on individual and collective levels, movement, and bodywork.
I began my technical hands-on schooling at UC Berkeley's Sports Medicine dept, and continued in body therapy programs at McKinnon + SFSM. Trauma healing trainings in Somatic Experiencing® (a body-oriented trauma healing modality), Kathy Kain's Touch Skills (trauma resolution work), Resilience and Regulation (developmental trauma work), and Movement for Trauma (somatic practices to build capacity).
Today, I continue learning and supporting the healing community by assisting in both Kathy Kain's somatic touch and Somatic Experiencing® trainings. All the while, I am supported through the rhythms of Nature, community, dance, meditation, and healing-centered practices. Together, they guide me + ground me into deeper presence, stillness, and attunement with myself + others.
May all bodies feel safety, well-being, belonging, and dignity.
I offer my deepest gratitude to my ancestors, guides, and teachers.
