I hope you like what you read here . . . because I am eager to meet you.
My professional journey has taken me down multiple paths to healing.
I began as a dancer, dance educator and then artistic coach for dancers. I was drawn to the power of dance and movement to help people grow, to overcome personal challenges, and to live authentically. When I earned my social work degree, I also completed a Masters in Dance Movement Therapy, thus blending practicality with expression.
While I promise not to give you dance lessons, I will introduce you to some alternative routes that may lead you to a better place.
I made my next move to work with people living with HIV and people in recovery from addictions and mental health concerns. At hospitals and agencies, I trained and immersed myself in the world of Psychodrama, which I found to be a safe and gradual tool for those wanting to heal from trauma. I became a Certified Practitioner of Psychodrama in 2013.
I continued work with Psychodramatic Bodywork®, which draws from Eastern massage methods to help the body recover from the splintering effects of emotional, sexual and physical abuse.
Next, I had the privilege of training in and becoming certified as a provider of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. (Thankfully, it is also called EMDR.) It is a bit complex — and it can have exciting and transformative results. I want to tell you more about it when we connect.
In addition to teaching social work students, I continue my learning of the most successful and innovative methods. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is Sue Johnson’s powerful and effective method of working with families and couples. I am currently immersed in EFT supervision groups, in this powerful means of reconnecting family members after a breach . . . often with an even deeper love than ever imagined.
I hope that we can have the opportunity to speak, during a complimentary phone session.
