Mindfulness for individuals and groups

I come across many people who share with me that they find the countless benefits of meditation appealing, but have hit blocks when trying to start a personal practice. Judgment over “I just can’t stop thinking” is a frequent complaint. No wonder so many people abandon their attempts early on—who wants to do something that they constantly feel bad about?! I address such issues through my use of compassion practices. I help clients build awareness of their judging voices, acknowledge the protective functions, and address doubts around treating themselves with more kindness (hint: self-compassion is not self-indulgence!) My teaching is trauma-sensitive and I am committed to helping individuals figure out what approach works for them. In addition to compassion practices, I also teach interpersonal mindfulness and have run workshops on topics including mindful approaches to using social media and technology.


Please get in touch if you are interested in psychotherapy that incorporates mindfulness, starting or developing a personal practice, or offering a program at your workplace/institution. The workshops I offer cover topics including, and not limited to:

  • intro to mindfulness
  • mindful communication
  • improving your relationship with social media and technology
  • developing compassion for oneself and others

My experience includes:

  • Advanced Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness with David Treleaven
  • Mindful communication courses with Oren Jay Sofer (incorporating nonviolent communication)
  • Stanford Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) with Wendy Heckert
  • Insight Dialogue courses and retreats
  •  MBSR with Jon Aaron
