About the Author: AUM Integral Wellness
Founder & Clinical Director of AUM Integral Wellness 2003 was a year of healing and transformation for me. Yoga, meditation, breathwork, studying psychology, and participating in therapeutic work allowed me to shift from feeling like I was the victim of my circumstances to becoming the active creator of my life. I learned how to create a life, and self, that I love! Since then, I’ve dedicated my life, work, and passion to the conscious evolution and growth of self. I’ve helped others heal, grow, and transform so that they also manifest the life and self they most desire. I received my Bachelors of Science in Psychology from The University of Texas, Dallas, and my Masters of Science in Social Work with a clinical focus from The University of Texas, Austin. After graduate school, I served in the U.S. Peace Corps in the Caribbean for two years, teaching emotional intelligence to at-risk youth. Upon returning to the states, I focused my skills in the areas of crisis intervention, trauma, severe, and chronic mental illness. I didn’t lose my island flare, and I still have fun installing dreadlocks for others in my spare time! Before founding AUM Integral Wellness, I was the Clinical Manager for a crisis intervention agency, managed a behavioral health intervention project at the Dallas County jail, and headed a project in the Psych ER of a local hospital. All the while, I continued to study and receive training in the utilization of researched-based eastern and indigenous healing practices. I have learned from some wonderful mentors. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker-Supervisor (LCSW-S), a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Reiki Healer, and certified in Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy (TIYT). My formal training and experience as a clinical psychotherapist and my holistic framework and expertise in alternative therapies allows me to provide a truly unique, fun, soothing, and transformational experience for every client I serve!
