Whenever I’ve asked myself what I want to do with my time here on earth, the answer has always been the same: share my mindfulness practice with individuals, groups and organizations, especially under-resourced and challenged organizations who serve our youth, elderly and disenfranchised.
I am passionate and determined to offer the means and ways to cultivate kindness, compassion, resilience, sharing and equity among ourselves and within organizations. With the capacity to self-regulate and recognize the innate wisdom inherent in our humanness, we can manifest a peaceful and self-aware world where differences and diversity are celebrated and respected. A society that is committed to listen and act with integrity and justice will prepare our youth to live in peace in an ever-changing and uncertain world. Creating Access Mindfulness (and co-creating MindfulHarlem) is a result of my passion and determination. I am a volunteer and offer my services for no fee.
In private practice, I am a psychotherapist and (international) executive coach. I teach MBSR to clients all across the globe. I have many credentials and formal training, but the most important and profound learning has come through my practice, my students, clients and colleagues, and from my two beautiful sons who bring joy to my life everyday.
