Sarai Louise Hinkley MA, LMHC, R-DMT
Welcome to my practice.
I worked as a licensed massage therapist for many years, learning different forms of bodywork, Shiatsu,Thai, Cranio-sacral, Myo-fascial, Deep Tissue massage as well as studying somatic practices such as contact improvisation, body/mind centering, authentic movement and yoga.
Dance became my therapy. Moving my body kept me alive and expressive. I am so grateful to have moved and sweated with some of the most radical and liberating teachers of the post-modern dance world; Sara Shelton Mann, Kim Epifano, Keith Hennessy, Nancy Stark Smith and KJ Holmes.
Exploring the edges of my own balance, fear, strength and stamina in the dance studio also led me to dancing outside with trees and climbing on rocks. I became an Outward Bound wilderness guide, a lover of the elements and a fierce protector of wild things.
In 2010 I completed my Masters degree in Counseling and Dance/Movement Therapy in order to bring the healing power of the body and earth to people without easy access to it. Since then I have been leading expressive therapy groups inside and outside classrooms, hospitals, treatment centers, as well as working 1:1 with a variety of people struggling with the disconnection between their body, mind and spirit.
My aim is to help clients cultivate a deeper connection to themselves- to their own voice, body, mind, and the unique path they are on.
