I hold a Bachelors Degree in psychology from Cornell University, a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from William James College, and am a Certified Ayurvedic Medicine Practitioner, having attended the Kripalu School of Ayurveda.
Health and wellness have always been fascinating to me, especially once I became introduced to long-standing systems of medicine such as Ayurveda, and the wisdom of herbal or plant-based medicine. Everything I recommend is something I have experienced in my own healthcare journey, having tried numerous modalities over the years to address various injuries and illnesses. I am walking the walk, imperfect and fumbling as it is at times, and I invite you to do the same.
I am passionate about continuing to study and deepen my understanding of the modalities that have become the mainstays in my health and wellness toolbox, and I look forward to sharing these ideas and tools with you.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare. Each of us has a unique constitution that will benefit from an open-minded and curious approach, a willingness to “try things on”, and the agility and ability to pivot and try something different, as needed. These are also not quick- fix solutions, but rather are ongoing opportunities to observe, grow, keep what works, let go of what doesn’t, and do it all again. It’s a dynamic process that is ever-shifting, which can be frustrating - let’s be realistic - but it can also be highly rewarding.
If you’re interested in working together, please contact me. I work with a telehealth model and I offer:
These textured raw silk gloves are made for dry exfoliation of the body before a shower or massage. Each pair is made by hand in the USA from 100% natural virgin silk.
Garshana is a Sanskrit word meaning “to polish.” Exfoliating the body regularly helps to detoxify the body and stimulate the lymphatic and digestive systems, which helps minimize the appearance of cellulite. Scrubbing your entire body with the gloves is not only invigorating, but also leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft!
Note: Some fraying around the edges of the gloves is normal, and long frays can be snipped away without worry of damaging the gloves. They will get a little more rough over time, which serves to increase their effectiveness.
Care: Machine wash, cold water + detergent. Tumble dry low heat.
