Experiencing the present moment through the practice of mindfulness helps us connect with what is happening within and around us so we can more skillfully respond to inner and outer stimuli. By developing this quality of awareness, we gain a clearer understanding of our internal and external circumstances, which allows us to move out of (often harmful) reactivity and towards a more skillful response.
Sometimes accessing the present moment can seem impossible or uncomfortable, especially if the practice is new or we are experiencing a period of intensified distress. To help navigate and support your mindfulness and meditation journey, I offer free mindfulness education resources on my Universati™ educational platform, where I provide Mindful Education for All.
As a Professional-Level Certified Mindfulness Teacher (IMTA CMT-P), Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher (UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center + Awareness Training Institute), Mayo Clinic-trained Wellness Coach, Martha Beck-trained Wayfinder Life Coach, heritage Thai Buddhist and lifelong mindfulness practitioner, I look forward to partnering with you on your path towards:
- increased clarity;
- a stronger sense of equanimity;
- improved resilience;
- enhanced performance; and
- greater well-being.
As a parent of a child with anorexia nervosa, I also work with parents, schools and organizations to support mindful caregiving and provide free Eating Disorder Education resources on my EDUniversati™ change platform.

If you are brand new to the concept of mindful well-being, you’re just where you need to be.
Wellness coaching can be helpful if you are a) contemplating making a change in any area of your personal or professional life and want to evaluate your options or begin your visioning process for the transition or b) ready to take the leap and would like a supportive partner in the behavioral change or transition process.
A mindfulness teacher can assist you in learning how to incorporate mindfulness practices into daily life to find more ease or peace in your relationships, work life, communication skills, health management, self-talk habits, and more.
Mindfulness and Wellness are two interrelated disciplines that complement each other. If you’re interested in experiencing an easeful, integrated quality of life and increasing your overall well-being with a mindful approach, we can craft classes or sessions tailored to your specific needs.
If you’re still not sure, you can book a free 15-minute discovery call before applying for a private session.

Universati is a play on words combining “university” + “sati.” Sati means “mindfulness” in Thai and ancient Pali.
EDUniversati (™) is the same play on words combining “university” + “sati” and adding the prefix “ED,” which stands for “eating disorder.”
