My name is Julia and I am a registered dental hygienist, a certified Buteyko breathing educator, myofunctional therapist and sleep coach. I live and work in New York City and provide care for children aged 4+ and adults alike. I have a special interest in breathing practices related to hormonal changes in women.

After the COVID-19 lockdown, it has become standard practice to communicate with my patients via Zoom video sessions. As an added benefit, video sessions allow for access to patients across the country and not just those in New York City.

In my sleep coaching practice, I help my clients with regaining control of their sleep through lifestyle changes and various exercises. As a myofunctional therapist, I help clients with their orofacial health. As a Buteyko breathing educator, I teach proper breathing techniques to help with a variety of conditions. ALL of my clients receive personalized care which often consists of a mixture of all 3 specializations that is tailored for their needs. My certifications are in Buteyko Breathing Re-Education, Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy and Sleep Coaching (listed below).
