and I’m a certified sound practitioner, teacher and owner of Harmoniaalto, a wave to harmony.
I worked 17 years at Nokia Corporation as a Senior Sourcing Manager dealing with timezone differences, multitasking, demanding deadlines and ever changing requirements. I became very familiar with sleeping disorder, high blood pressure and difficulty focusing. When my coworkers started to take long sick leaves while suffering from burnout, it was my time to look for options to prevent that from happening to me.
Over the years I tried various forms of meditation, yoga and other somatic practices. Eventually I was introduced to the use of sound vibration as a vehicle for wellbeing and balance. This discovery triggered profound and valuable insights on ways to assist people to become more present and to foster relaxation in the body and the mind by implementing sound centering tools.
Built on my direct experience and studies on the effective and affective quality of sound in wellbeing, I created my sound healing offering including private sessions, sound baths and classes on how to set up a sound healing practice. I am committed to continue evolving my practice and finding simple practices that can be integrated into every day life. Look for more info on events and self-help tools.
I offer private sessions in Oakland, CA and events in the San Francisco Bay Area, around the USA and in Europe.
I am very passionate about collaborating with other practitioners such as Craniosacral and Yoga therapists, acupuncturist and artists. Integrating different modalities and practices with sound generate results that are more easily accessible and faster for the client.
