My journey began as a teenager, when one volunteer experience changed the course of my life. After that experience I knew my mission was to work with youth and do the best I could to influence change and happiness in their lives. For the last ten years I have been fortunate enough to do exactly that.
After earning my Masters in Social Work from Columbia University, I relocated to the west coast, working as a clinical therapist at an all girls residential treatment program. During my time as a clinician, I specialized in mood disorders, personality disorders, trauma, adoption, substance abuse, eating disorders and self-esteem issues. After earning my 200 hour Yoga Alliance teacher training, I helped create a Yoga For Teens program and loved seeing the healing effects the practice holds. After leaving residential treatment, I continued working with youth and their families as a family coach, focusing on aftercare from wilderness therapies as well as residential treatment.
I view my prior work experience as an invaluable precursor to launching Satya Family Coaching—life coaching services focusing on adolescents, young adults, and families. I feel an intuitive connection with the teens and parents I’ve worked with. Through Satya’s services, I believe you will not only be led to the outcomes you are looking for, but you will be assisted in discovering truth and deeper awareness during the process. My style of relationship building coupled with directive communication remains a powerful motivational force. I believe that being brave in my work with clients will ultimately lead them to a higher, more truthful life. Because this work is my passion, my heart and authenticity is felt with each family I work with.
When I’m not working, I enjoy maintaining a devoted yoga practice, trying out new and adventurous foods, and spending time with my loved ones. I love traveling, movies, and a good book.
