Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long should I expect to work with you?
    While most of my students are long-term, meeting and doing the work for several years, I recommend a minimum of 12 weeks. If possible the first eight weeks should be as consistent as possible, meeting on a weekly basis.
  • My days are super hectic, I’m not sure I’ll have the time to fit in practice. How much work will I have to fit in outside of session?"
    You’ll find that rather than being something extra you “have” to do, there will be a natural integration of in-session discussion into your inner and outer worlds. Plus, you may even experience a general sense of time slowing down (can you imagine?) as our work progresses - your hectic days may now begin to look a little different.
  • Do I have to meditate?
    I’ll never push meditation on anyone, but if you express an interest we will absolutely explore meditation as part of your mindfulness journey. There is a plethora of evidence supporting Meditation as a highly effective tool in helping people be more mindful in their daily experiences.
  • Do you work with moms of all ages?
    Yes! And occasionally women who are not mothers, or their male partners.
  • How do you stay so consistent and calm in your own mindfulness practice?
    Ha - I don’t! I’m a human being. And a mother. I have seasons of feeling closer or further from my practice, more or less grounded.. Maintaining an “always” practice would be unnatural, and is one of the reasons I am obsessed with working with moms - bridging theory with reality is my passion.
  • What if I’m currently in therapy, or taking medication for a mood or anxiety disorder?"
    Great! Please don’t stop. I’m glad you are under the care of a qualified mental health professional. In my experience individuals who have experience with therapy are already open to evolving and learning – this makes you an excellent candidate for our work. Mindfulness coaching is not a substitute for therapy or medication.
  • You told me we are not a good fit for working together, or have referred me elsewhere – why?"
    I am not qualified to diagnose or treat mental health disorders. In some cases I may feel that your clinical needs would best be met by a licensed mental health professional. This doesn’t mean that we cannot work together at some point in the future, or in parallel to the clinical support you are receiving elsewhere.
