After I earned my Ph.D. in Experimental Immunopathology, I immersed myself in the practice of mindfulness-based healing, integrating mind, body, and spirit through yoga, meditation, and life coaching—€”dedicating myself to this for over 25 years.

My reason for that was to commit myself to work in partnership with psychiatrists, therapist, and physicians who care for those suffering from emotional and physical stress-related disorders, including PTSD, other forms of mental disorders, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, eating disorders, and addictive behavior, among others.

As to my background, I am certified as a Yoga Instructor by the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, a Yoga Therapist, a Reiki practitioner, a Certified Life Coach. I have also received some training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention, and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.

I am humbled by the fact my clients and students say that they like my gentle manner of speaking, my intuition, the fact that they have complete control of their bodies, and my knowledge of the neurobiological effects of yoga and meditation.

Based in the Palm Springs area of California, I have traveled throughout the US and abroad, giving presentations, and facilitating retreats.

I know that you will not hesitate to contact me if I can help you in any way.
