In terms of therapeutic interests, she is particularly passionate about the interplay between physical and psychological health and in utilizing the techniques of mindfulness to improve the mind-body connection and reconnect to one’s own intrinsic wisdom.

With warmth and compassion, she works to tailor therapy to the needs, strengths, and goals of each unique person.
