Trauma informed Yoga therapy contributes to the healing of those impacted by traumatic life events. The therapeutic focus is the development of healthy, body-based self-regulation strategies to empower clients to live connected, resilient & safely embodied lives.
Yoga therapy has been proven effective in conjunction with traditional psychiatry and psychotherapy to address a wide range of conditions from chronic pain and stress to mental illness and addiction. I have been working with clients since 2007 and will design a practice to meet and grow with your specific needs. All sessions include education, assessment and an exploration of various yoga techniques with an emphasis on choice and safety.

I have a 48-hour cancellation policy. I charge the full fee for a missed appointment, or ½ the cost for an appointment cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice. This policy is not meant to be punitive; it is in place to shield my livelihood from the vicissitudes of my clients lives. I require payment within 24 hours of a missed session. For late arrivals, sessions will end at the scheduled time, and the full fee will be charged.
Upon booking a session you will receive an intake email which includes the logistics for the sessions and intake questions. This includes inquiring into and assessing your health history, current treatments and medications, physical, mental and emotional condition, and your health and wellness goals.
If you would like to develop a home practice you can bring a phone to record our session or we can record it on Zoom if we are meeting online. A printable take home practice costs $15 (audio/Zoom recordings of our practices are free of charge). I don’t require that client’s practice at home in order to engage my services. Each practice is designed to suit your specific needs, capabilities, goals, and life circumstances. We will revise and update your personal practice on an ongoing basis. The tools and insights you gain during our sessions will support you in feeling more grounded, connected and at ease in your body and relationships.
I recommend that clients continue their personal health routine as suggested by their doctor or medical professional and/or seek out the support of a qualified mental health professional while accessing my services.
To book a session online or in-person or to arrange an initial phone consultation to determine if my services are best suited to your needs contact me.
“Nicole has worked with me one on one, doing therapeutic yoga. She is knowledgeable, patient and creative as a teacher and therapist. She is attentive to all my physical limitations and has improved my flexibility and strength tremendously. She is committed to excellence in all of her practice. It has been a joy to work with her.”
– Jurhee Zimmerman, R.N. B.Sc.N., M.Ed., Executive and Team Coach
“As an education consultant, I have a caseload of children who have sustained an acquired brain injury and who continue to experience both physical and psychological complexities as a result of accidents. Nicole has proved to be an essential member of a multidisciplinary team as her work addresses both physical and psychological domains. She travels to the clients home when they can not tolerate travel, bright lights or groups of people and offers relief. Clients report reduced headaches and body pain allowing them to engage more fully in their daily lives. She is sensitive and extremely flexible in her approach, tailoring her work to the uniqueness of each child. In every situation in which she has worked the client expressed extensive positive regard for both her and the results of their efforts. She is a forerunner in her field!”
