"Our body is the pen with which we write our life story, beginning with our first breath and ending at death. The body gives physical representation of the things that happen in the "inner chambers" of thought, desire, reason, and emotion."

Tina Schermer Sellers, PhD

My work is deeply influenced by a passion I have for seeing lives restored. i see restoration as an embodied journey. to the extent we care for our own bodies we will be able to show up and care for others around us.  I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Registered Yoga Teacher.  I have spent a decade learning, researching, and growing in understanding and practice of the connection of our mind, bodies, and souls.  I engage all of these integral aspects of the self in my practice of facilitating healing.

“As I often tell my students, the two most important phrases in therapy, as in yoga, are “Notice that” and “What happens next?” Once you start approaching your body with curiosity rather than with fear, everything shifts.”
— Bessel Van Der Kolk
