About

We all move from our first breath and this power can be harnessed to create meaningful experiences towards healing. If you are looking for a therapy experience that goes beyond talking and helps you connect to your whole self, Dance/movement therapy could be for you!! If you have tried traditional "talk" therapy and it has not produced the changes you are wanting, a Dance/Movement therapy session will help you make shifts in session (literally!) that you can apply in your everyday life. If you or your child or teen does not like to "talk" about your feelings, DMT is a solution! At my core, I see movement as our path to wellness. Movement connects us to our physiology and psychology to really affect change- we cannot just think our way to change, we need to move it! I use the body, which is never in the past or future, as a tool to help clients become aware of your own physical and emotional states in the present. I strive to connect my clients to your bodies and from there we practice techniques to empower you to embrace living in your bodies and connecting to your whole self.
I have over 15 years of experience working with clients using Dance/Movement Therapy to help embrace their true selves. I have a Master's degree in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling from Columbia College, Chicago. I have a BA from Cornell University in Biology, Psychology and Society. I also have an interest in nutrition and how it impacts our wellness, so we focus on building awareness, movement and connection in all areas of your health to help integrate your mind, body and spirit.
I combine a relational-cultural framework with practical Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Dance/Movement Therapy skills when working with clients. I have worked at hospitals, treatment centers and schools specializing with Eating Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Trauma and Addiction. I am a Nationally Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor from the State of Colorado. Previous sites includes: Children's Hospital of Colorado, Eating Disorder Center of Denver, and The Renfrew Center of Radnor, PA.
