Frequently Asked Questions

What EXACTLY  is "mindfulness and beyond"?

I find answering this WELL a challenge! I highly suggest contacting me for a complimentary introductory session so you can experience it for yourself.  You can also google "what is mindfulness". Then add to any of those definitions: going beyond that with unlimited  possibilities and pure potentiality as you create your life.

Do you specialize in any area?

"Lifelong shine power" which includes:
all executive functioning skills, communication, focus, life direction, emotional regulation, self-calming, anger, social skills, relaxation, pain management, self-acceptance, sleep issues, general well-being, career support, hyperactivity and impulsivity, depression/anxiety.

What are the rates for your services?

As an educator passionate about equitable access to outstanding education, I choose to keep my fees lower than traditional therapeutic or consulting services. I also offer sliding scale fees and sometimes barter services. Please contact me for specifics.

I know someone who might benefit, but how might I get them to try it?

It's my pleasure to offer a  complimentary session so anyone can explore with no expectations or pressure.  Feel free to reach out to me if you'd like to brainstorm more together. 

Are you licensed, certified and insured?

I am not a licensed health professional, but I am a certified practitioner and teacher. I do have liability insurance. 

I believe in science. Is there any research on mindfulness? 

Yes, as of 2018 there were 842 academic journal articles with the word "mindfulness" in the title according to AMRA. You may also find my hand-curated research on youth-related studies  here. You are welcome to contact me about particular areas of interest.
