I work with diverse individuals and groups, as a trained mindfulness teacher, yoga teacher, and psychologist. Specifically, I offer one-on-one mindfulness-based work, and co-teach MBSR group programs with my partner Dr. Victor Bucklew. My therapeutic approach is to offer support and training for connecting with one's self and one's community, cultivating socio-emotional skills, and navigating the demanding, fast-paced, and often isolated modern lives that pull us out of our embodied self-knowing. Broadly, I am committed to adapting and tailoring my work to reach people where they are in the present moment. I am comfortable meeting difficulty and suffering as it arises.
I have been fortunate to have received rigorous training on the evolving influence of technology and social media on well-being. For individuals who are experiencing high levels of stress related to technology, I offer support and empirically-based practices for ethical and healthy ways to plug in.
My educational background includes: Cultural Anthropology (BA, 2008), Psychology (MA, 2015), Human Development and Family Studies (PHD, 2019). Previously, I worked as a writer and journalist in the public health sector, serving as a multicultural communications advisor in over 25 field offices in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America.

Victor is a physical scientist who researches light. His interest in the MBSR program grew out of the deep impact that the program had in his own life, helping him to relate more positively to daily stressors. Victor loves playing piano, tango dancing, yoga, and the outdoors. He has previously worked with at risk populations, facilitated leadership workshops for youth and adults, has taken yoga teacher training, and has guided many wilderness canoe trips. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University where he studied lasers. He feels very fortunate to offer the MBSR program alongside his partner Chelsea.
