FINALLY! A Program Focused on empowering our youth with Integrative Strategies for Social-Emotional and Mental Wellness

From seeds to blossoms

Figuring out how to support our youth in navigating the rhythms of a life of confidently living in their true nature, while empowering them toward awareness of imbalance and how to return for resilience has been my passion throughout my 30 years of practice working with youth. I have always asked the hard “whys” and “hows” seeking to understand the root issues and how to build on strengths to meet individual challenges. Through on-going decades of research, personal and clinical experience, I have learned souces and variablity of self-doubt, overwhelm, anxiety and depression. Helping our youth cut through the weeds and live their reason has always been my passion and reason.

“I recently attended your workshop in Renton Washington. You can teach an old dog new tricks. I have been working in the public schools for thirty years and I picked up some new great strategies at your workshop. I would like to share what I learned with my colleagues in Peninsula School District in beautiful Gig Harbor Washington. I identified with your holistic view of OT and the OT Yoga connection.”
