Profile picture for user cynthiamarietastad

I am a graduate in Occupational Therapy from the College of St Catherine class of 1990 with a specialty interest in pediatrics. I have thirty plus years of experience working with diverse age, culture, gender identity, physical and mental diagnosis and medical settings. I've promoted occupational therapy and published wellness articles for Valley Hospital newspaper in the Matanuska Susitna Valley of Alaska. I was a Lead Occupational therapist on the Transitional Care Unit at The University of Minnesota.  I am proactive in clinical program development, staff education and mentoring. My eclectic interest and study of medical and wholistic modalities that heal the mind and body continue to refine my skills as a practitioner. I currently offer breathwork, meditation, mindfulness training, therapeutic movement, and iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation to both individuals and groups. I offer iRest Co-Meditation Dyads on an individual basis to assist with healing and personal refinement in a life coaching/trauma coaching capacity. I am a Level 2 skilled iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation teacher, trained by Dr. Richard Miller and Stephanie Lopez. In my personal time I enjoy the arts, a range of physical activities, and cooking with friends and family.
