I am a certified Yoga Therapist, Artist and Chef based in Portland, Oregon. I’ve studied Yoga Therapy with Sarahjoy Marsh at Portland's DAYA Foundation, Hatha Yoga with Ritam Healing Arts' Saul David Raye in Ojai, CA, Plant Spirit Medicine with Scott Kloos at The School of Forest Medicine in Portland, Herbalism at The School of Traditional Western Herbalism in Portland, Magic and Ritual at the Blue Iris Mystery School in Portland, Flower Essences with Catherine Abby Rich in Larkspur, CA, Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson Lasater in San Francisco, CA, Painting and Drawing at at l’Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy, and Art and Design at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, CA.
I'm currently a graduate student of Counseling Psychology at Meridian University in Petaluma, CA. I am deeply inspired by the work of C.G. Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, Marion Woodman, Joseph Campbell and James Hillman. I'm also currently studying Hakomi—a somatic, mindfulness-based approach to psychotherapy—at M.E.T.A. Institute in Portland, OR.
My work combines yoga therapy, holistic cooking, and creative practice as ceremonial interrelated healing modalities. I encourage slowness and spaciousness, cultivating fertile ground for transformation. Connection to the earthly body permeates my life and powerfully guides my work.
