In 2007, I discovered Nonviolent Communication and began a lifelong journey of mindfulness. I became aware of how my thinking impacts what I say and do, and the ripple effects it has on others. This led me to become a certified Mindfulness Instructor with Mindful Schools, a Mindful Self-Compassion for Teens (formerly known as Making Friends with Yourself) Trained Teacher, and a graduate of David Treleaven’s The Complete Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness Training.
I love to work with teens as these are such formative years. Currently, I work with high school students; helping them find ways to cope with the stresses of school and life. Supporting them in becoming aware of the causes of their stress opens up a doorway to explore the skills and tools needed for increased mental well-being.
