"Healing is an art. It takes time, it takes patience. It takes love." -Maza Dohta
Hello, and welcome again. I am an Orlando-based, yoga nidra teacher, creative depth coach, and energy medicine practitioner specializing in embodied healing and wholeness through classes and coaching.
I work with clients in private sessions, group classes, sacred circles & collaborative workshops.
My experiences of heart-centered healing are rooted in my eclectic personal and professional explorations of wisdom teachings, general unlearning, self-actualization, energy medicine, embodied awareness practices, expressive arts, shadow work, parts work, childhood trauma, trans-generational trauma, childbirth & pregnancy loss as initiation, conscious parenting & self re-parenting,earth-based spirituality, masculine & feminine balancing, yoga nidra meditation, group process, sexuality & sensuality, chronic illness, addiction, co-dependency, divorce, grief education, intuitive nutrition, nature bathing, values discovery, depth psychology, personal coaching, etc.
These learning opportunities have shown me that there are a vast number of paths towards greater self-understanding, revelation, acceptance and personal transformation. And perhaps most importantly, I've learned that the energy drain associated with deeply ingrained and often harmful behavioral patterns such as anger, judgement, anxiety, addiction, avoidance, depression, self-doubt, numbness, people-pleasing, perfectionism, etc. can be lovingly addressed and ultimately reintegrated towards purpose.
The mind-body-spirit is always ready to adapt towards greater balance, peace, and freedom.
Our vital energy can be reclaimed.
With the right support our ability to heal is truly awesome & endless...
It is my purpose and passion to guide and coach individuals who are seeking ways to grow and honor their innate health & wholeness. Is my honor to help people respond consciously to stressors, express themselves emotionally, befriend their inner critic, re-inhabit their bodies, better understand the basic biology of their nervous system, build self-care skills, process heavy experiences, resolve internal conflict, connect to presence, refine their values & vision for the future, and remember what unconditional self-love and deep personal safety really feels like.
With the right tools our ability to choose is truly powerful & self-affirming...
My goal as a personal coach and teacher is to provide a safe space for clients to remember themselves through simple, restorative processes that support a deep relationship with their higher knowing, heart center, or Whole Self.
Clients have an opportunity to actively work through the stories of the past by stepping into the present moment with a creative, embodied approach to their personal healing goals.
I believe whole-heartedly that through practicing self-kindness, active inquiry, and deep trust in our inner wisdom we can relax, nourish, integrate, & experience life with more ease, freedom and sacred potency.
We can direct our focus back to our passion and purpose. We can learn to live again from a place of balance & peace.
It is my great honor to witness & gently guide this process of discovery & self-healing for the amazing people I get the chance to know. This work is a life-long opportunity to truly embrace our shared humanity.
The inspiration behind all of the work that I do are my four magical children, two earth angels and two spirit babies. Their dynamic presence has been the most loving, sacred, and transformative blessing of my life.
Answering the call of my inner work has changed my life in so many incredible ways. It has strengthened my resolve to make time for the things I really enjoy like yoga nidra naps, swimming in the ocean & springs, nature walks & photography, watercolor painting, native habitat gardening and cooking simple meals with big love. Self-care has become a daily practice of remembering how to better love myself so that I may continue to show up, grow, learn, understand, accept, and give thanks for what is and what is not.
I aspire to someday open an intimate bed and breakfast honoring the land and its guests by featuring a healing food menu, outdoor mineral tubs, permaculture gardens, and a variety of holistic wellness services including meditation, massage, individual & couples coaching, nature immersion and art therapy sessions. Whew!
I look forward to hearing all about your big dreams too!
Thank you for being here. Please reach out if I can answer any questions.

I stand before what is with an open heart. And with an open heart I dwell in possibility. -Macrina Wiederkehr
Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish; every sweet word will fade, But do not be disheartened. The source they come from is eternal, growing, Branching out and giving new life, and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it. – Jelaluddin Rumi
