My Background & Experience
I started the Relax Into Wellness classes in 1996 after completing my yoga-certification training at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York City. I completed my graduate training at New York University in 2000.
From the beginning, I have integrated psychotherapy with the relaxation insights of yoga. I was teaching yoga and working full-time in the psychotherapy field, and using my ideas about relaxation in my practice.
I have worked at all levels: outpatient, intensive outpatient, day treatment, partial hospitalization, inpatient and residentual, and I have taught relaxation skills to diverse groups of people in diverse settings.
I have created and implemented mindfulness therapies and have made it my expertise. Over the past 8 years I have created the Relax Into Wellness classes. I have helped with depression, self esteem, sleep, pain, and mobility. People have a need to learn the relaxation skills in conjunction with their psychotherapy treatment. These skills provide my patients with a sense of control, a sense of empowerment. It has allowed my patients to “turn the corner” towards wellness.
