Welcome, and Thank You for stopping by to visit.

I am a highly experienced Psychotherapist, Conference Speaker, Yoga Therapist, Laughter Yoga Teacher and Yoga Nidra Meditation Instructor with a private practice in my home office in beautiful dowtown Sayulita, Mexico, a charming surfing beach town 35 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. I moved here from the San Francisco Bay Area where I had a successful counseling, speaking, training and yoga practice for over twenty five years.

In addition to offering Private Counseling and Yoga Therapy sessions in my home studio, your home or resort setting, I teach Weekly Integrative Yoga Classes at Hotelito Los Suenos Yoga Studio on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:00 – 7:15 p.m.  See my Schedule Page for details.

Retreat Groups, Businesses, Conferences, and Wedding Parties visiting the Sayulita and Punta de Mita area hire me as a guest teacher to offer two-hour Yoga Nidra Meditation Journeys featuring my transcendent crystal singing bowls, teach heartfelt Hatha Yoga, offer customized Laughter Yoga Sessions and provide professional Group Facilitation.

I am inspired by the yogic tales about the Lotus and honor the above and the below, the light and the shadow, the brilliance and the murkiness, all  that is life!

The Lesson of the Lotus:
Rise Above the Muddy Waters of Life. Seek the Light.But do not be afraid to Embrace the Shadows Below


The lotus flower is an ancient iconic spiritual symbol of beauty drawing nurturance from below, yet rising above the muck, seeking the light, and blooming into the light. Every night, it closes its bloom and sinks below the surface, to rest and renew and then rises to meet each new day fresh and clean. It represents being fully grounded in earth, yet aspiring toward the divine. Honor the light and the shadow. So above as below.
