I am a psychotherapist, coach, and facilitator who supports people in moving towards greater authenticity, intimacy, and meaning in their relationships with themselves, others, and the earth. I am dedicated to helping others experience deeply integrated transformation that works at the core to transform shame and shed stuck patterns. I bring my experience with dance and movement to help people access their feelings, sensuality, power, and wisdom through their bodies. My work is grounded in the belief that the deep personal growth work I have done is what allows me to hold a powerful space for others’ transformation. In addition to a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work from Smith College, I have special training in mindfulness, dance/movement therapy, expressive arts therapy, and deep ecology. I am also a certified Shadow Work® Coach.
What do I offer as a therapist? I have facilitated personal growth work for over twelve years and have been in the mental health field for the last eight years. I am comfortable working with the full range of human experience, and am especially interested in the potential each of us has to become more fully alive and embracing of our uniqueness. I am certified in Shadow Work®, which is a powerful model for helping to integrate lost parts of ourselves. I also specialize in Dance/ Movement Therapy, Embodied Mindfulness, and Sensuality Coaching. My work comes directly from the past twelve years of my own healing journey. I believe that this is the only way someone can be a true healer and it is an important element of what I offer. I see authenticity, expansiveness, and “shadow” as critical pieces of the journey to wholeness. I care about creating movement in those places that have felt most stuck in a person’s life. The modalities I work with have produced the most powerful healing in my own life and I am confident in their ability to create real and lasting change for others. My work can be experienced in regular ongoing 60 or 90 minute sessions, 3-hour intensives, or classes and workshops offered throughout the year. In this way the work can specifically meet both emotional and financial needs. I create an environment in which people feel deeply seen, heard, and honored. I believe in empowering you to take an active role in guiding the process. I offer many tools to help you keep integrating the work we do into your life.
