Work History

My style is focused on educating, supporting, and empowering others in developing emotional and behavioral coping skills that are healthy and effective to manage life’s difficulties. I am deeply passionate about sharing the power of meditation and practicing a mindful life. I am a certified Mindfulness Teacher through International Mindfulness Teachers Association (IMTA). I believe that learning and cultivating a meditation practice can lead to awakening insight which expands the individual’s ability to explore their own pain and suffering. Therefore, I integrate mindfulness as a pivotal piece in not only my personal life but in all my therapeutic approaches. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
