About My Clients

Do you ever find it challenging to communicate what you are experiencing in words? Have you ever felt at a loss to express yourself fully? How do you process your experience? Are you experiencing new feelings, sensations, and thoughts that may feel foreign to you? Dance/movement therapy emphasizes ways to explore, express, and strengthen your relationship with your mind and body. It encourages the question of how do they inform and support one another throughout the healing process?

My Background and Approach

I approach the work from an eclectic framework. I pull from dance/movement therapy, counseling, relational-cultural theory, humanistic, strength-based, trauma-informed theory, mindfulness-based practices, multicultural competencies, cognitive, and behavioral theory. We do not have one way of solving a problem, and neither will my approach. I always integrate creativity into my work. I believe creativity is the most attainable form of problem-solving we are innately gifted. It is essential to acknowledge that there may be roadblocks in the way to your creative thinking. We will explore ways to access creativity once your basic needs are met, such as safety, trust, food/water, and shelter. I'm a registered LPC intern in Oregon & dance/movement therapist. Under supervision of Kristen Genzano. I received my MA at Drexel University in Dance/movement Therapy & Counseling, prior I received a BA in Dance and BA in Psychology at the University of Montana.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a dance/movement therapist and counselor, I collaborate with you to support a safe environment where you feel accepted, seen and celebrated. I value the need to respect and honor cultural experiences around movement and invite that into space as needed. I believe that movement is not your strength. We will explore how you can feel comfortable. The way I do this is by approaching the work with non-judgment and strengths-focused. Let's look at what you do have instead of what you are missing. I believe and am interested in supporting you to become the fullest version of yourself. So that you can safely, confidently, lovingly, and authentically experience your life.
