Over the years I have conducted numerous workshops for businesses and civic organizations on stress management, coping skills, and mindfulness psychology.

I have years of experience and training in mindfulness practices and mindfulness-based psychology, and have been teaching and practicing mindfulness for two decades. The focus of my work is to promote emotional healing and wellbeing through the mind/body connection.
