I am a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), a mental health counselor, a wife, and a mother of two little girls and a dog. I started my yoga journey in high school to support my personal mental health and strongly believe in the power of the mind-body connection. I have been working with youth and young adults as a mental health counselor in Seattle since graduating with my Masters of Education in Counseling from the University of North Texas in 2012. I completed my 200hr teacher training at Spira Power Yoga in West Seattle in 2016 and completed my trauma informed Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) training with YogaEd in June of 2020. I am currently working toward my 500hr RYT with Spira Power Yoga. Outside of teaching private & group yoga classes, I also work as a mental health counselor in private practice and specialize in working with survivors of trauma and managing emotional intensity.
