My Story

After the birth of my first daughter, I was diagnosed with Postpartum Anxiety & Depression. A few years later, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. These diagnosis caused me to reevaluate my life, dive deep into various healing modalities, and renegotiate my relationship with myself. Among other things, I realized I was a Highly Sensitive Person and that I often prioritized everyone and everything else around me - ignoring the very important things my body was trying to communicate with me. 

I stopped working as a high school teacher after a decade; it took a huge leap to quit, put myself first, and create a life I could lead with more peace, faith, and ease. I found a regained sense of myself when I started working with a somatic therapist and learned about Polyvagal Theory and my nervous system. I started orienting to the beauty and joy that existed all around me, as well as accepting the painful emotional experiences I had worked so hard to resist for years. 

I certified in a a variety of Somatic modalities (listed below) and I am a certified Kundalini yoga teacher (RYT-300) - also called the 'Yoga of Awakening' to incorporate breath work and meditation in my sessions. I have completed training in Polyvagal theory, mindfulness and nervous system awareness, and I am enrolled in graduate studies in Counselling Psychology (MACP). A full list of my education and experience is listed below. 

I believe that in order to heal, you have to develop a resilient capacity to move - through emotion, through change, and through life, while retaining the ability to love yourself, others, and the world around you. Thus, Move Love Heal was born.
