I graduated from Regis University, Denver with a Masters Degree in Psychology in 1999 and became a Certified Yoga Instructor through training at Core Power in 2011.
As a Child and Family Counselor, I have worked with kids and parents for 15 years. During this time, I began to recognize stress as an underlying theme for the children coming to my practice. My own Yoga journey has helped me to be calm and still when my world is chaotic. I began to wonder, how could I bring these tools to the children?
Keeping this in mind, I developed Boulder Yoga Kids Integrative Counseling, recreating and adapting standard Yoga Asanas into kid friendly stories that are interactive and fun. I also partner Yoga with the basic modalities of play therapy, art therapy and talk therapy which together, help kids and teens to be proactive rather than reactive when feeling stressed, sad, mad or overwhelmed by life.
