I specialize in working with young-ish people who don’t necessarily know which way to go or how to get to where they want to be. I am a guide on this journey towards “adulting”. For many years I have been helping clients get back on their feet after having fallen down in one way or another. I have deep respect for who and where my clients are at, and I meet them here. I give them time to reflect and explore the crack in the concrete they just tripped over, the brambles they are tangled up in, the emotional wilderness they feel lost in. I gently challenge my clients to make sober and thoughtful life decisions, as we begin to explore what radical self-care looks like and what embodied transformation might make possible.
We all come to these crossroads at different times, when life gets complicated and confusing. In these intense moments I can offer you my professional, openhearted camaraderie. You will receive the encouragement you need to authentically express who you are, what you are going through and I will give you support in persevering to find what is true for you. I work with the wisdom of the body, not just the understandings of the mind, as in traditional talk therapy.Being trained in the expressive therapy model of guiding clients inward, I can help you to connect to your strength and calling by engaging in art-making, movement and/or spoken word. Dance/movement therapy is about self-discovery, not perfection or performance. The work we do together can intensify your voice and invigorate your spirit to persevere as the powerful kind of change-maker that you already are.
