Wellness Services

While I offer each of my services separately, many clients have found it helpful to integrate two or more.
Yoga, mindfulness, meditation, counseling and nutrition effectively work together to promote well-being and overall health.
I have structured programs to aid in your journey to wellness, or I can customize to meet your needs and help you accomplish goals.

Yoga

Yoga is about creating a balance of both strength and flexibility in the body, a balance between vibrant energy and quiet stillness, and ultimately a balance in life as a whole. In my classes and private sessions, we mindfully work through physical postures and breath work to help cultivate a focused, calm mind as well as a strong, flexible body. I offer modifications to meet the needs of those present, and I specialize in gentle yoga with therapeutic elements, as well as restorative yoga. Check out my teacher training for an in-depth study of yoga.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation training is about learning how to be present and cultivate a clear, calm, and focused mind. I teach a variety of grounded techniques and can help you work toward deepening your practice, so you may find peace in stressful moments. Benefits include: lower blood pressure, reduction in chronic pain and stress levels, improved mental concentration, improved confidence, better sleep and an increase in overall enjoyment of life. Beginners and experienced practitioners are welcome. Private sessions and group classes available. For in-depth study, consider a teacher training.

Private Counseling

The one constant in life is change, and adapting can be difficult for all of us. Whether you need someone to just listen or provide gentle guidance for life changes, losses, depression, anxiety or other challenges, the confidential ear of a trained counselor can help ease the stress of daily life. I’ve worked with individuals of all ages, from children, to parents, to the elderly, and my professional experience spans from personal counseling to corporate environments for employees and managers alike. I’m here to listen and support you as we break down the barriers that are holding you back, and find your natural strengths that can help you live the life you want! Although I am based in Pittsburgh, PA, I can work with you no matter where you live.

Nutrition & Wellness

I work with a concept called bio-individuality, which focuses on your personal make-up to determine what foods support your unique needs, your lifestyle, your personal preferences and your background. I work with individuals, as well as groups, to develop specific wellness programs where you’ll set and accomplish goals, explore new foods, understand and reduce cravings, increase your energy, and feel better in your body. We will discuss your unique situation in depth and determine how I can help. Although I am based in Pittsburgh, PA, I can work with you no matter where you live.

Speaking Engagements

Looking for an inspired talk about living life with greater ease and more energy? I speak at all-hands meetings, member events, conferences, small groups and more. Topics include: Mindfulness and Resiliency, Living Your Purpose, Top Ten Wellness Tips, Rekindling the Dying Art of Communication, and more. Contact me to learn more and to get a quote.

The Unstuck Program helps you Live with Purpose, and Navigate the Ever-Changing Landscape of Your Life

12 week program

This program is for you if:

  • If you're looking to “find yourself” or you feel that who you are “on the outside” is different than who you are “inside.”

  • You’re looking to find more meaning in life, perhaps personally, professionally, or both.

  • You might not be sure where to start, in terms of being happier and more fulfilled, but that is your general goal.

  • You want to continue to grow as a person, but perhaps you need help with motivation, implementation, or adapting your vision to make it accessible in all areas of your life.

  • You are in the midst of, or foresee major life changes (moving, change of jobs, divorce, marriage, empty nest, having or losing children, death in family, or other circumstances).

  • You perhaps feel challenged by or overwhelmed by those changes.

  • You might feel the need to talk, or not talk, but just learn skills to assist you in adapting to or moving through the change. Perhaps you feel differently each day or each week.

I can help by:

  • Offering meditation and mindfulness practices to help you quiet the chatter in your mind, and calm and soothe your nervous system.

  • Offering coaching and counseling to talk through challenges and blocks

  • Offering motivational and positive psychology exercises to boost confidence and help you find clarity

  • Offering a strengths-finder approach, so you feel stronger and more resilient.

  • Helping you see different perspectives and look at the "big picture."

  • Offering journal assignments to help you find yourself and your purpose, as well as express emotions and mental roadblocks around changes in your life, so you can move through them.

  • Being a listening ear, and an accountability partner, holding you accountable to move forward in the ways you want and need to.

How Would It Work?

This is a 12 week program. We'd meet face to face every other week, for a one hour session. We'd talk, and I'd create assignments or "homework" for you. You'd give me an email check in on the off weeks to let me know how you're progressing.

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost of the program is $630 total, which includes a support book and email notes after each session. (I choose the book after I get to know you a bit - around week 2-3). If you don't want to pay $630 up front, you're welcome to split it. $315 in week 1, and $315 in week 6.

Where Are The Sessions?

The face to face sessions are held at my home office, in Franklin Park. I'm conveniently located minutes off of the Mt. Nebo exit off I-79, minutes off of the I-279 Camp Horne exit, minutes from Wexford area. I'm happy to schedule you at off-peak hours so you avoid traffic, if that's a concern. Also, Skype sessions are available - you can meet with me in the comfort of your own home or office!

What Happens After The Sessions Are Complete?

Many people continue to have sessions with me after the program, on a monthly basis, just to check in and stay on track. The cost of monthly sessions after you've completed the program, is $90 for an hour of face to face, with weekly email support.

Also, if these programs don't suit your needs, please let me know. I'm happy to customize a program around mindfulness, yoga, nutrition, and coaching - whatever you need, and we can figure out a plan that's just for you!
