My passion and calling is to live a life of embodying my essence and supporting others in embodying theirs. I believe at the core of our being we have an infinite capacity for love and creativity.  It is our opportunity as humans to embody this while living within a finite human existence. 

I have been working with individuals and groups for the past 25 years and this has taken me to many countries around the globe.  I serve as a transformational guide through the practices of life coaching and somatic psychotherapy and I am a teacher of embodiment via the forms of contact improvisation, yoga, pilates and authentic movement.

Experiences that have impacted me deeply have been; growing up on a farm, living and working in other cultures, working with and exploring the natural world, and passionately practicing movement and improvisation. A devastating heartbreak was the catalyst for my own heroine’s journey and pivotal in my commitment to supporting others in theirs.  The potency of my own metamorphosis has given me absolute faith in anyone's ability to transform pain into a powerful alignment with one's most essential self.
