About

I offer counseling and dance/movement therapy to help people move through life’s ups and downs. I can help people through normal challenges as well as with diagnosis and treatment of disorders. Additionally, I offer Chattanooga’s first dance/movement therapy private practice. Dance/movement therapy uses body language and creative expression to build connection, awareness and healing. This modality is effective, in part, because: communication is 90% nonverbal; everyone moves in some way; putting things into words is sometimes too difficult; and emotions and struggles often have a physical component.
After a successful 30+ year career, I felt a deep desire to help others, leading me to become a Mental Health Counselor. Additionally, having experienced the healing power of dance in my own life, I further pursued credentialing in Dance/Movement Therapy. Whether you want to talk, move, or dance through your struggles, I can help.
I use an embodied approach in therapy. I believe that every person has the internal ability to heal and everyone needs help from time to time. My work with clients is informed by a humanistic approach, utilizing aspects of solution/strengths-based, attachment-focused, and psychodynamic theories.
