Mindfulness is our ability to pay attention to the present moment, with curiosity, and without judgment.
Mindfulness is really good for you!
A growing body of research shows that practicing mindfulness leads to many benefits, including:

✻ better focus and concentration
✻ increased sense of calm
decreased stress and anxiety
✻ better ability to respond to difficult emotions
✻ increased empathy and understanding of others
✻ better sleep, improved immune functioning, and less chronic pain
✻ increased levels of happiness, optimism, and well-being
Maybe you've tried practicing mindfulness, but you worried you were doing it wrong. Maybe your mind wouldn't shut off. EVER. Maybe you found it hard to stick with the practice.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a guide for your mindful journey?

That's where I come in!
I can give you personalized attention, guidance, and instruction to help you reduce your stress and find your joy.
Personalized Mindfulness Coaching
Over several weeks and/or months, you and I will work closely together to help you start your mindfulness practice. In 60-minute Skype/phone sessions once a week, you'll learn mindfulness and meditation techniques, and we'll explore how you can use these practices to deal with the stressors in YOUR life.

What You Get
Personalized Instruction
We'll take a look at the stressors in your life, and create a mindfulness program for YOU.
Guided Meditations
I will guide you through meditations during our calls (so there's none of the "how do I even DO this" questions!) You'll learn many different practices for reducing stress!
Calm & Quiet
Our sessions are a special time of self-care and nurture. You'll learn powerful ways to access calm and stability whenever you need it.
Real-Life Change
This isn't just navel-gazing -- we'll make sure you know how to apply these practices to make meaningful changes in your life.
Support & Accountability
I am your coach and accountability partner! I'll keep you motivated and on track, and address all your questions and concerns as you deepen your practice.
Strength & Resilience
I wish I could make all the bad stuff go away ... but I will give you powerful tools so you can bounce back from whatever life throws at you in the future!
"Mindfulness is life-changing -- let me show you how!"
Before I started practicing mindfulness, I figured it "wasn't for me." I had two little kids, a very demanding job, a house to clean, dinner to make . . .and I had to go to Target. I didn't have time to be mindful!

But I needed something practical that would help me manage my stress. I decided to learn how to use this ancient practice in my very modern life.

So I read a lot of books (a lot!) and I gave it a try. And you know what happened? My life started to change!Not all at once, of course, but slowly, surely... I could see it.

I laughed more. I smiled more. I found a stillness and ease at the core of my crazybusy life.

Now I'm a certified mindfulness instructor, and I spend my days teaching this powerful practice to students, teachers, mothers... and people all over the world(over 2000 so far!)
