Call me Cat. Or Kitty.
Dr. Kitty if you're feeling fancy.
I am a Research Psychologist specialized in self-regulation and mindfulness meditation with children and adults. My current research examines the effects of breathing practices on stress and emotion regulation. I've taught university courses in social, cognitive, and abnormal psychology as well as statistics. I co-instruct the massive open online course with over 20,000 students called The Science and Practice of Yoga. I'm also a certified breath coach and yoga instructor.
I'm a nature-obsessed, animal-loving, lifelong learner. Most of my time is spent researching and teaching mental exercises that help people of all ages calm down, pay attention, self-reflect, and connect to themselves and others. The rest of my time is spent brainstorming new nicknames for my dog, Georgia.
