I am a Certified Mindfulness Teacher-Professional (CMT-P) through the International Mindfulness Teachers Association, having completed over two years of mindfulness teacher training through Insight LA and Mindful Schools from 2016-2018. I'm also trained in Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness, and in NAMI's mental health program for families. Over the years, I have explored many meditation traditions and modalities, finally finding a home in "vipassana," (meaning "insight"), the style of meditation that developed into secular mindfulness. Through my business Open Window Mindfulness, I lead mindfulness classes and retreats at wellness centers, schools, businesses, and in health-care settings. You can hear my free recorded meditations and read my articles on on roundglass.com. I'm also a visual artist with an MFA from California State University, Long Beach, and my artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
