“Do all that you can, with all that you have, in the the time that you have, in the place where you are.”  –  Nkosi Johnson

I’ve a steadfast belief that modern science and inward based practices such as yoga and meditation support our innate healing capacity. Being a long time teacher of yoga, mindfulness-based interventions,  coupled with being a big fan of neuroscience and evidence -based medicine has strengthened my belief that combined they deliver health programs that are effective, empowering and cost effective.  I know all of this first hand having used yoga, meditation, YOGA NIDRA and a big dose of my goofy humor to negotiate my way through a spate of BIG challenges that occurred in rapid succession a few years back- one of those challenges was cancer.  I am more determined than ever to work my work and walk my talk. Hence my recording:

YOGA NIDRA: Total Relaxation Practices for Adults and Teens (links at bottom of this page)

For many years I worked as a  clinical social worker and psychotherapist (MSW,LCSW)  in community mental health centers, hospitals, day treatment centers,universities and my own private practice. Much of my clinical practice was aimed at assisting people with chronic or acute anxiety, stress-related illness, pain management, depression, difficulties with concentration and other health and mental health challenges.

In addition to the health related work, I work with Clearwater as a part-time educator with the Tideline Education Program. School groups come to our program (along the banks of the Hudson estuary) where we have a lot of fun while they participate in a variety of hands on learning stations.

And, my latest endeavor is in process and as yet, still unnamed. Stay tuned, more will follow.
