Psychotherapy, Life Coaching and Yoga

August 7, 2013


I hope this newsletter finds you relaxed and well this summer. I'm here to offer a few doses of rejuvenation to keep you engaged in your personal growth.

In the past month I've had the opportunity to assist an IFS professional training here in DC, and then to immerse myself in three full days of yoga at the Wanderlust Festival in California. I'm happy to share the fruits of my learning with you.

3 upcoming events:

Thursday Aug 22 at 6:30-7:45pm Overview of Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS).

An introductory presentation of the IFS model and how it can transform your relationship to yourself and others. This overview is for anyone curious about IFS. It will expand your understanding of your current IFS work and beginners will be introduced to a modern and dynamic form of psychotherapy. NO CHARGE for this event held at 2029 P St. NW. Bring a partner or friend. Q&A included. Register by emailing

Intimacy From Within begins Sept 5 and I'm currently taking registrations.

This four week class is a combination of yoga and IFS. Open to those with or without IFS/yoga experience and those who've attended in the past. Each class includes yoga and meditation. The four weeks are broken down:

Week 1. On the Road to Self-Discovery- The Basis of the IFS Model

Week 2. Stepping into the Journey Inside- Getting to Know Parts

Week 3. Deepening into our Higher Selves

Week 4. Grounding our Discoveries- A New Relationship with Self

4 weeks of acupuncture and IFS psychotherapy

This program is designed to heal your body and mind. Acupuncture is a Chinese healing art that helps to restore emotional peace and physical well being. IFS is a cutting edge technique that heals the "parts" of the mind that cause stress. Receiving each modality over the course of the month, you'll feel more calm and centered, minimizing the ups and down in mood. Open to new and existing clients.

I'm here to support your progress. In addition to office sessions, I offer sessions by phone and video call. Many people are initially hesitant about phone sessions and are happy to discover that they work just as well as office sessions.
