About me

I came to my work as a somatic movement therapist out of a desire to address my own challenges with chronic pain, nervous system sensitivity, and sensory overload. Over the past ten years, I’ve studied with the world’s leading experts in developmental movement and healing. I've also done extensive research and study across fields such as interpersonal neurobiology, embodied cognition, and somatic theory and practice.
