About Maria

Why do you practice mindfulness?

Initially I came to mindfulness to manage chronic back pain; but now I've discovered it helps me to be my best self, with my family, my students/families/clients, and with my colleagues.  It's now an integral part of my life and it's my passion to share it with others with whom I work.

What is your training and how does mindfulness fit with OT?

Mindfulness is a natural extension of OT, as it is a life skill, (significantly based in science - neurology, physiology, and sensory processing) that can be cultivated through understanding and practice, much like many of the life skills developed and strengthened by OT; therefore, I was very excited to further my training in this field of study.  Tap the button below to learn more.

Why did you decide to bring this practice to the community?

Although mindfulness has therapeutic value, mindfulness training does not discriminate!  You don't need to have a diagnosis or a problem....mindfulness benefits EVERYONE...Teaching these skills in wellness centers, businesses, homes, and schools for all to benefit, eliminates the stigma associated with any form of mental training. Many corporate executives, professional athletes, and celebrities promote mindfulness mental training.
