Biography

I specialize in coaching of adults to support mindfulness and social and emotional intelligence skills development. I am trained as a Narrative Coach and use mindfulness to bring awareness to how our mindsets and narratives influence our our lives. I also use embodiment practices in coaching to support self-awareness and regulation skills.

While I have experience teaching mindfulness to teenagers and university aged students, I specialize in teaching mindfulness lessons to students ages 3-6 (preschool).

The mindfulness preschool classes are based on curriculum from Mindful Schools, Little Flower Yoga, and the Kindness Curriculum by the Center for Healthy Minds. The lessons focus on active, sensory experiences to explore and experiment with mindfulness under themes supporting social and emotional skill development, such as identifying and expressing emotions.
