FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

New clients can contact me via phone or email, and communicate what they are hoping to achieve; what is their immediate goal. I would then contact them over the phone or Internet to offer solutions that would meet their goal. 

I work best with students who are ready to make a change, but are not sure where to start, or would like some accountability around a new habit/change.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm a certified Life, Mindfulness and Wellness Coach (by the International Coach Federation, The Mindfulness Coaching School and MentorCoach.com). 

I am a trained teacher of various mindfulness-based applications, completing the curriculum at the Mindfulness-based Professional Training Institute within UCSD Center for Mindfulness. 

I have a Master's degree in Education and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. 

Personally, I've been through many life changing transitions that brought uncertainty, stress and anxiety, and found mindfulness to be a huge remedy to help put things into perspective.

How did you get started teaching?

I've always been a teaching in some respect, involved in training and development, and designing instruction. I also coached youth sports when my own children were little. I came to the world of wellbeing through the door of life changes and knowing that how we respond to these changes makes all the difference.  The way we respond really depends on how we "see" or relate to things clearly. It also relates to what possibilities may lay ahead. Having a growth mindset is the first set. Cultivating awareness is the next.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with all ages: from teens to seniors, men and women alike.

I've worked with all demographics: various ethnicities or origin.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My meditation classes bring a grounded and centered feeling, and one of openness/vastness. My students leave in such a different state as when they arrived.

My coaching sessions bring a sense of fulfillment for me, as I work with others to uncover their wisdom, encourage them to open to possibilities, and plot a course to navigate their situation to their desired goal.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Start a conversation stating what you are looking for, why you are seeking mindfulness, wellness, meditation or coaching. What are you hoping to change? How can working with a teacher or coach enable you to develop and work toward the goal? Ask yourself first, how committed am I to this process?

Talk to a few teachers and see who's style resonates with you most. 

In fact, it's great to change up your teachers as well, to gain different perspectives.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What am I looking for?

Why am I looking for this?

Am I committed to this change?

What support do I need to make this change?

What support do I need to maintain the change?
