I’ve long been fascinated by the reciprocal relationship between mind and body. As a dancer, I was thrilled by improvisational partnering and the way physical interaction encourages present-moment awareness. Similarly, the physical practices of yoga and meditation showed me how deliberate mental focus could alter tangible, sensory perception.
My approach to coaching blends the collaborative spirit of partner dance with the intentionality of meditation. The method integrates mental, physical, emotional, and intuitive aspects of the self, and that integration is where the magic happens.
As a child, I was deeply lost in my own inner world. I read constantly, stalked fairies in the forest behind our rural Vermont house, and drew stars and moons on my jeans in trigonometry class. Raised in a household with a lot of conflict, figuring out how to relate to other people in healthy, supportive ways became an urgent priority.
My primary explorations into relationship were in the artistic and wellness fields. After founding my own tango social dance school and performing company, I earned a Master’s degree in Dance and then certifications in yoga, reiki, and Thai massage. My coaching training helped consolidate this collection of holistic tools into a way to help others overcome their biggest challenges and free themselves from chronic anxiety.
