“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” ― Audre Lorde

About Dr. Jo L

I am a passionate women's holistic life, wellness, and spiritual coach, as well as a yoga, meditation, and mindfulness teacher. Previously I worked in mental health, under my doctoral degree in clinical psychologyspecializing in trauma. I transitioned into my current role as holistic healer and yoga, meditation and mindfulness teacher due to a desire to escape the limitations of bureaucracy and insurance, and my strong belief in the mind/body/spirit connection and its necessity in healing.

My business is called tula soul and my mission is to help women find balance, boldly use their voice, and proudly take up space. Tula means 'balance' in Sanskrit, 'wind' in Finnish, and 'poem' in the Philippines

Specialties include: eating disorders, body image, trauma, relationship issues, communication, abuse, addiction, depression, anxiety, stress management, transitions, low confidence, goal-setting, career issues, etc. 

I teach a wide variety of yoga styles, including bhakti, hatha, vinyasa, tantra, nidra, restorative, yin, etc. My sessions are always trauma-informed, adapted to any level of experience (including no experience), and body-positive. 

Meditation and mindfulness are important practices in my life, and I love teaching these practices to clients, since they are so transformative. Studies have demonstrated that both meditation and mindfulness improve both physical and mental health, decrease stress, improve concentration and focus, improve ability to problem-solve, and so much more.  There are so many ways to meditate, so if you're skeptical, or have tried meditating in the past and felt frustrated, I will find the right style of meditation for you. The truth is, everyone can meditate and enjoy the benefits

Given my passion for social justice, I volunteer for Humanize My Hoodie, which works for racial justice, abolition, and fashion activism. In addition, I volunteer for Eating Disorders Coalition and I mentor young women.

Writing is also a passion. I began writing poetry in fourth grade. It has been a means of expressing and processing feelings, and well as a creative outlet.

I am honored to have been voted Best Local Business Person of 2022 on Alignable.

“When I was matched with Dr. Jo and read her bio, everything she had experience with and was interested in matched with everything I was looking for in a coach! We’ve had a few sessions so far, and I have never felt so comfortable with a therapist/coach right off the bat. I can tell she cares about me and my thoughts/feelings. She listens well, is able to give good advice and guidance. She doesn’t just sugarcoat things and is real with me.
