Dance / Movement Therapy
Dance-movement therapy (DMT) is a therapeutic practice that uses movement and dance as a way to approach physical, emotional or social issues. Founded on the belief that there is a strong correlation between movement and emotion, therapists practicing DMT use the expressive nature of dance to observe, analyze and evaluate the client. DMT can help to improve a wide range of issues including stress, self-esteem and body image and can be especially helpful for individual’s with developmental or communication problems.

I utilize the medicinal movement of qigong in talk-therapy sessions to target and work with specific types of problems and disorders. Most body-oriented people deeply appreciate this holistic approach as it addresses challenges and issues more thoroughly than talk therapy alone.
We are not just our thoughts, we also experience everything on a physical level. Trauma-informed yoga and intentional movement can tap into your body\'s natural ability to heal from trauma, anxiety, and depression and to overall embody your experiences to live more fully. I understand it can feel frightening to be present with your body and I work with you at a pace that feels manageable.
I have been a yoga instructor for over 5 years and I lead individual and group yoga therapy sessions.
