Elaine is a Vietnamese-American Feldenkrais teacher/practitioner in her 15th year of practice. Learn more about Feldenkrais on the Feldenkrais and Classes pages.
She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and specializes in trauma survivors, multiculturalism, survivors of abuse and tragedy, PTSD, healthy relationships, career development, and chronic illness. She is the child of an immigrant war refugee and a drafted Vietnam vet. She recently met her family living in Vietnam and is working to learn the language (it's hard!)
She was awarded a Communities in Schools Outstanding Volunteer award for her work with LGBTQIA adolescents in the 2011-2012 academic year. She ran the only middle school group for LGBTQIA kids in the state of Texas for two years.
She is certified in the Tara Approach, an energy medicine system developed by Dr. Stephanie Mines.
She teaches shamatha and tonglen meditation in the Karma Kagyu style of Tibetan Buddhism.
She was born in 1968 and is a Virgo with a Scorpio moon and five planets in the 12th house with sextiles into Neptune. Apparently this makes her a super spooky ultra powerful psychic healer. So she is told, anyway.
She makes a mean posole, New Mexican style, rides a Ducati Scrambler, and is a serious pistol and rifle shot. The serious look in the photo on this page was caused by breaking in a set of real motorcycle leathers for the very first time. They're very tight, and were giving me anxiety.
You can contact her by sending an email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling or texting: (512) 470-4268.
She truly enjoys collaborating with other professionals in presenting and teaching and is always delighted to present any topic from this website, either individually or in tandem with others.
