“When we learn to listen to the body, memories, emotions, and sensations rise up into consciousness. Mindfulness, movement, breath, and sound can give shape to these experiences, allowing them to sequence through, transform, and work their medicine in the psyche. I support my clients to become ever more receptive to the inherent intelligence and creativity of their embodied selves, and at the same time, to develop confidence and freedom in body movement and sound as the expressive ‘language’ of their being.”
I offer individual body- and movement-based psychotherapy to young adults and adults. My individual work draws from Authentic Movement, Attachment theory, and neuroscientific and psychodynamic frameworks to allow my clients to make contact with personal material and to sequence it through in a way that is safe, body-centered, and enriching.
I am sensitive to the particular needs and goals of each client. My way of working is sometimes focused on skill-building and self-awareness, and at other times is more focused on providing specialized support to move through complex psychological and emotional terrain. At all times, I see myself as a partner, witness, and support to my clients’ own inner journey and process.

“Based on the empirically supported premise that the body, mind and spirit are interconnected, the American Dance Therapy Association defines dance/movement therapy as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual.”
