on a mission to facilitate joy in life. I’m curious about possibilities
and how things work, and what’s going on when things work differently
than expected or wanted. I enjoy facilitating and witnessing my clients
as they discover new options and freedoms they didn’t realize before.
Every time I work with someone I feel a deep sense of gratitude to
experience their beauty and complexity as a person.
I started teaching as a
tutor when I was studying Math, Physics and Computer Science. In my
professional career I’ve had the pleasure of continuing to develop as a
mentor/teacher working for companies like Texas Instruments, GE, the EPA,
GlaxoSmithKline and Duke Energy. I enjoyed developing in various roles
as a researcher, troubleshooter, collaborator, manager, project leader
and inter-division technical liaison.
the early 1990’s my curiosity and personal needs led me into exploring
other ways of learning including martial arts, the Feldenkrais Method®
of Somatic Education, Reiki – a form of healing energy, contact improv
dance, and InterPlay – a somatic practice based on community building
and fun. All of these opened up new possibilities for joy and
empowerment in my life. I chose to pursue training in Reiki, InterPlay
and Feldenkrais. These all taught me a variety of lessons about the
marvel of human experience.
feel particularly grateful to Moshe Feldenkrais and all that has come
from his founding of this work because it played such a big role in
helping me recover from a brain injury I received in a car accident. I
was afraid of losing my job because of the loss of ability to focus or
retain information after the accident. I was fortunate to have a
practitioner available to help me. I had been told it could take
anywhere from a year to several years for the type of brain trauma I
received. With her help I made a full recovery in only 3 months.
she did for me, I now help clients who come with movement challenges
that frustrate them or make them feel nearly hopeless. I help them
acknowledge the truth that is in their body now; create space for them
to release what prevents them from moving freely; guide them to expand
their physical and mental capabilities; and invite them to the
possibility of joyfully embracing the beauty that they already are.
