My journey began with my own search for training programs to help me navigate the challenges of living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
After studying Dr. Gabor Mate’s teachings on my own for several years, I was accepted into the CI year-long training program in 2020. Since then, I have become a certified compassionate inquiry practitioner, facilitator, and mentor, with training in Hakomi and certifications in MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), mPEAK (Mindful Performance, Awareness, and Knowledge), and Basics in Clinical Supervision.
My approach to mentoring is based on mutual collaboration, providing guidance and support to practitioners in training, seeking certification, and pursuing career goals. I am also a member of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee trained by The National Coalition Building Institute – NCBI for Compassionate Inquiry.
I am honored to have been an early contributor to the USC Center for Mindfulness Science and currently serve on its steering committee. Mindfulness is at the foundation of all my work, as I focus on the application of mindfulness interventions for healthcare, research, and psychedelic integration.
My passion for mentoring stems from my own experiences and the transformative power of compassionate inquiry, and I look forward to supporting others on their own journey of growth and discovery.
