Shake Your Soul is back! July 10, 17 & 24 on the Upper West Side

I know, I's been a while!


The main reason you have not heard from me for the past few months is because I'm pursuing a bachelor in psychology, and I'm enrolled in a 4-year somatic psychotherapy training.

My Shake Your Soul class is back! For three Wednesdays only, so far: July 10, 17, 24. And on the Upper West Side! Find all details and register online here.

I hope to see you soon in class xo

While short-term use of these medications is considered “safe and effective”, long-term use is controversial because of the potential for dependence and other adverse effects (6). The long term use of benzodiazepines (a class of drugs primarily used for treating anxiety, such as Xanax, Klonopin, Valium...) has been shown to worsen sleep, increase anxiety...

New Year, New Website, New Offering!

Here we are, it's 2018. I wish you much peace, healing where you need it, personal and professional breakthroughs and most of all emotional freedom.

Emotional freedom, the capacity to fully experience all emotions in an uncensored way, is in my experience central to easeful living and feeling alive. It is something I have strived for since an early age. Somehow I always knew this was a central piece to my health and happiness.

Circulation is essential to good health; circulation of blood, breath, life force and yes, emotions.
