After being one of my mom's caretakers during her cancer journey and dealing with my own health issues, I discovered mindful meditation as a tool for emotional resilience and as a way to reverse the very real and devastating impact of stress.
As a certified meditation instructor, I am passionate about helping people on the cancer journey to restore and sustain balance in life, starting with getting over the guilt of taking a rest.
I'll share the best quick-hitting practices to help you reduce stress and overwhelm. You'll be surprised that meditation doesn’t take a lot of time or discipline in order for it to “work." I'm confident that these sessions will help you take the first step toward getting joy and resilience in your life!

“How is this Different from Using an App?”
Apps are great for guided meditations. However getting live coaching will help you meditate more often on your own, without being connected to a device. Sign up and come to a few classes and find out for yourself. We know your life is busy, and we designed this program to work within your schedule.
