About My Clients

I approach my clients with patience and sincerity, and allowing them to feel supported, seen, and safe are my priorities. I am part of a private practice, Dancing Dialogue LCAT LMHC PLLC, that includes three dance therapists and an art therapist. We use a team approach and can work collaboratively if you are interested.

My Background and Approach

I am a registered dance/movement therapist and hold a creative arts therapy limited permit. I earned a MS in dance/movement therapy from Pratt Institute. I interned under the tutelage of Dr. Suzi Tortora and Jennifer Whitley at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with pediatric oncology, and am currently being trained in the Ways of Seeing Program by Dr. Tortora. I specialize in psychotherapeutic approaches utilizing movement, play, mindfulness, tactile and verbal stimulation, imagery, and music. I am trained to support individuals with various diagnosis, complex medical challenges, as well as endured traumatic experiences to develop effective communication skills, create coping strategies, improve self-awareness and self-esteem.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Trusting the process is the foundation for release and healing. Utilizing embodied expression takes us on a journey that allows us to dig deeper into ourselves and reveal the essence of where we came from, who we are presently, and how we want to move forward. It is with this awareness, I’ve become passionate about helping communities find freedom, faith, and empowerment within their bodies and inspiring them to constantly look to movement as a source of knowledge and support. Change is power, acceptance is grace, expression is release, and dancing through the struggle will continue to motivate us as we navigate the complexities of life.
