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 am a Jungian Analyst. I completed my thesis on the exploration of the relationship between shame and grandiosity by using authentic movement as the modality for that inquiry.

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.
