Hi there! Welcome to my site! Here you can find a bit about me, what I’m passionate about, what I do, and some cool resources along the way.

Throughout college, I found myself exploring the world of health and healing through my public health courses by day, and deepening my own inner healing and inner exploration through yoga, meditation, and Buddhist philosophy, by night. Diving deeper into both, I spent 2 years working at the forefront of health-tech at IBM Watson in the Health division, while simultaneously pursuing a 200-hour yoga teacher training. I am now pursuing my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Spirituality & Mind-Body Practice, at Columbia University.

Today, I work with groups and individuals to guide inner exploration through the philosophy, science, and practice of living a meaningful life and cultivating an awakened heart and mind. I am fascinated by the power of the mind and perspective in our subjective experience of the world, and focused on investigating the neurophysiology and therapeutic potential of contemplative practices, behavioral health, and human connection. My workshops and meditation guidance emphasize:

  • Self-inquiry, self-awareness, and cultivating inner wisdom

  • Building motivation and self-confidence to transform thought patterns and habitual behaviors

  • Self-empowerment through education of the inner workings of the mind and body – the neurological and physiological basis of our experience

Please reach out if you’re interested in meeting or working with me! I’m always up for a nature walk or a chat over tea. You can typically find me in a bookstore, a yoga / meditation studio, or roller-blading down Hudson River park :)
