The body has always fascinated me. I started my journey as an art major exploring the human form. I was curious about the interconnection of the emotional state on the physical form and explored this through my art. Years later I went back to school to explore this in more depth through Art Therapy. The body mind connection became my passion.
The energy we create and that which is cast upon us can greatly effect both our physical and our mental health. It is not just our circumstances but how we perceive them that leave a mark on our physical and emotional self. Often they are inter-related and one can not be treated without the other. Our emotions can begin within our physical bodies as cells that may have the power to multiply and create illness or physical pain. Likewise a physical ailment may effect our emotional being as in many traumatic events.
I use intuitive guidance, emotional connection and physical training to become the guide you need at this time. I meet you where you are and take you where you need to be at the speed you are ready for. My intuition is the guiding force in physical and verbal sessions.
My approach to working with clients combines the science of anatomy, bio-mechanics, psychology, and neuro-psychology with intuitive abilities and psycho-spiritual beliefs. Living in true balance and wellness requires the alignment and integration of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. My hope is that clients are empowered to live a more meaningful and satisfying life.
My physical practice is a combination of holistic techniques and physical training. I received my comprehensive mat and apparatus certification in the Pilates method in 2002 through the Kane School of Core Integration. I continued the study and integration of anatomy and bio-mechanical training through continuing education workshops with Irene Dowd, FAMI 1 and 2 training and Mentorship under Kelly Kane. I completed a Vinyasa Power Yoga 200hr training with Africa Yoga Project, Level 1 training with Baron Baptise, a personal training certification with National Academy of Sports Medicine, and Booty Barre Foundation training with Tracey Mallett.
In 2005 I graduated from Pratt Institute with an MPS in Creative Art Therapy and in 2006 I received my New York State License. In 2010 I completed Reiki Level 1 ,2, 3 and Master level certification. I furthered my training in energy work with the Soul Journeys Akashic Records training in. I have also begun journey with David Elliott and his Breathwork technique. I have completed Levels 1-5 and an additional Level 1 with Erin Telford.
