Bio

On a foundation of the philosophy and practice of Mindfulness, I am a "tour guide" for people who choose to jump into the journey of self discovery, healing, growing through life-changes whether these changes are thrust upon them or by choice. I provide instruction and guidance in the practices of meditation, gentle yoga and the daily practice of Mindfulness. As a licensed therapist, I utilize traditional methods of cognitive behavioral therapy with a generous peppering of other modalities to create customized plans for recovery, healing and growth for my clients.  

 
Having started out with a specialty in play therapy with preschool age children and parenting coaching, I now teach preschool teachers and parents how to support the emotional needs of young children. I provide supervision and training for therapist in the process of working toward certification in play therapy and I provide training in professional ethics for other therapists. 
 
My work with women has expanded into offering weekend women's retreats on a mountain top in beautiful Ellijay, GA.  These retreats offer a sacred space and opportune time for women to step out of what often feels like grind of daily life and experience a sense of respite, rejuvenation and a re-focusing on what really matters...
 
I'm an author having published numerous articles on the subject of parenting and child development as well as on the subjects of mindfulness practice. I am currently working on a book to be published in 2013 about the journey of mindfulness.  
 
Recently completed a special certification program in functional nutrition I will soon be offering a nutritional counseling component to my services.  This will add another layer of support for my clients and students, offering  education and guidance with regard to incorporating organic vegetables and fruits into daily diet as a means of supporting our emotional and mental health.
 
In my personal life I am a button-poppin'-proud mama to three truly amazing kids. My oldest is in college, one on high school and one in middle school.  I'm married to a truly great man with who supports all of my professional work with equal passion to mine.
