Our bodies contain our experiences. When we move and make, we process our experiences to create meaning. These are pathways to transformation which lead to a life of quality. I help people connect with themselves, others, and to global ideas and communities. I assist people who want to feel safe and empowered in their physicality and those who know that somatic engagement is a critical component to learning, healing, and leading.

Connect to yourself: Use movement to rehearse real life.

  • Movement study workshops in self-compassion, listening and asserting, resilience, journeying, and more.
  • Functional movement to support inner strength.

Connect to others: Let’s develop the staying power your audience needs in order to learn, grow, heal, and lead.

  • Interpersonal and engagement coaching for teachers, therapists, and professionals:
    • Lead your students in social-emotional learning;
