Work With Me

From stressed to serene in 3 steps (free ebook)

Work With Me

Avoiding people, places or things to avoid triggering anxiety is not sustainable. Is it even possible? Life happens. What if instead you could cultivate a state of being immune to anxiety? What if you could calmly respond, instead of react, to any and all life situations? How much easier would your life be? Getting to that place of emotional freedom is what I’ve helped my students and clients with over the past 20+ years.

How? Using a combination of Core Energy™ coaching, breath work, yogic relaxation, mindfulness practice and Ayurvedic medicine. And for those who like to shake and groove, there’s always my monthly Shake Your Soul® class.

Why those modalities? Because that’s what’s helped me break free from stress and anxiety, what I’ve studied for many years, what I know works.

Are you feeling anxious and disconnected from yourself?

If so, I can help you relax deeply,

feel calm and centered in any situation.

My approach to healing anxiety is rooted in the belief that we create from the inside out, based on our state of consciousness, itself an expression of the thoughts and beliefs dominant in our mind. And basically they either work for us or they don’t! Some thoughts/beliefs support a relaxed state, some will invite anxiety. As a Core Energy™ coach, Ayurvedic educator, yoga/meditation teacher and Shake Your Soul® facilitator my job is twofold. First I will help you uncover what’s really causing you to feel anxious (and no it’s never something or someone!) Together we’ll expose the filters (i.e beliefs) you’ve been seeing yourself and your life through, that do not support your emotional well-being. But “mind work” is not enough. A calm mind can only thrive in a relaxed body. The anxious person’s nervous system needs massive soothing and replenishing, as well as a being anchored in who they really are (i.e. not your symptoms). Yogic relaxation, breathing and mindfulness practices are uniquely equipped to help with that. Once you’ve reset your mind, body and spirit in that way, you’ll experience a newfound emotional freedom. Taking action to see your cherished dreams come to life will be easy.

Get Calm, Clear and Connected

1-on-1 Core Energy™ coaching will help you heal anxiety from the inside out. Together we will get to the root-cause of your anxiety (and no, it’s never external), while soothing and replenishing your nervous system. Both are crucial for long-term healing. You’ll gradually shift your mindset to a place where the things that used to trigger anxiety no longer do. This is called emotional freedom. Expect every area of your life to be positively affected as you begin to feel more calm and centered in yourself.
