Teaching Approach

At Dallas Therapy Collective, I teach private yoga classes for a variety of presenting concerns. In addition to my yoga teaching certification, I hold a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman’s University. I’ve also completed the 300-hour certification program in Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY), an empirically-based treatment for complex trauma.

During yoga sessions, my role is to facilitate yoga and work to understand how the practice of yoga can best serve your concerns and meet your goals. I’m interested in how yoga can support and complement your self-care routine and wellbeing, and I aim to explore how you can make effective choices within your yoga practice to enhance emotional regulation, increase a sense of calm, and nourish your body.

I facilitate yoga from a trauma-informed perspective, am aware of how the body can react to various postures, and offer choices and modifications throughout our time. However, further exploration of mental health issues is best suited for psychotherapy sessions with your individual therapist. If you’re attending private sessions, it’s my general recommendation that you attend therapy or have a relationship with a therapist so that you can have space to fully process any emotions or thoughts that arise as you deepen your yoga practice through private sessions.
