Our bodies were created for more than exercise.
Feeling grounded by, connected to and ALIVE IN our bodies is essential for physical and emotional health.


Physical and emotional pain are linked. If your patients or clients are seeking treatment for one without acknowledging the other, they’re simply not healing. Somatic movement connects the thinking brain and the feeling body. Through somatic movement education and therapy, adults, couples, kids and teens can learn to move with awareness and intention, discovering healing, expressive and communicative movement for their unique somas, the Greek word for “living body.”

And relationships benefit, too. Because 55% of human communication is non-verbal, a strong body-mind connection and clear movement expression are critical for strong and healthy families, marriages, work teams and communities. In other words, how your patients and clients move (and how you move when treating or guiding them), matters.

As a Dynamic Embodiment™ practitioner, I blend movement with therapeutic touch and conscious and compassionate dialogue in my work with clients. As a Certified Movement Analyst, I use my skills in observing, analyzing, understanding and teaching the functional and expressive aspects of movement to help my clients live more fully and freely.

My practice is grounded in my Christian faith. I believe God designed our bodies to be resilient, expressive, communicative and self-healing. That being said, clients do not need to share my faith, nor do sessions need to focus on faith. Clients have the opportunity to communicate any preferences at their first session and, if they wish, to change those preferences along the way.

I would love to support what you do as a healthcare or wellness professional through somatic movement, either by helping you care for your patients and clients, or by supporting you personally. Join me at my studio on any Thursday in September to reset your own body-mind connection while learning about the benefits of somatic movement education and therapy.
