My background spans the fields of holistic healing from Energy Medicine to the somatic work of Body-Mind Centering(TM). A lifelong dancer, performer, and movement artist, I utilize the expressive arts as a channel to communicate my soul’s deepest gifts and am passionate about guiding others into their journey of confidence, connection and creativity.
A devoted meditator and spiritual practitioner, these skills of presence and large awareness permeate throughout my practice.
I am deeply interested in bringing awakened consciousness and wisdom into and through our bodies as vehicles of authentic and embodied expression.
I work privately with individuals, couples, and in small groups.
My training includes a 4 year advanced degree in Integrated Energy Medicine from The Luminous Awareness Institute (http://www.luminousawareness.com/). I currently support the Boulder student body in this training. As well as with Gitanjali Hemp in Source Healing (http://www.source-healing.net/)
My somatic background is in Body-Mind Centering(TM) which combines western anatomy with eastern metaphysical body practices (www.bodymindcentering.com)
Other somatic practices include yoga, Qi Gong, Alexander Technique, and Continuum. My dance training includes physical theatre, ballet, improvisation, Contact Improvisation, modern, Ecstatic Dance, and Five Rhythms.
I have an MFA in Dance and Somatics from the University of Colorado in Boulder. I also hold a BS and BA in Human and Organizational Development and Fine Arts from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.
I am a certifed massage practitioner in Asian Bodywork from Five Branches Insitite in Santa Cruz, CA. And I have studied Cranial Sacral Therapy with Hugh Milne (www.milneinstitue.com)
