Integrated Movement Therapy
Compassion Balance Well-being
Life is full of challenges, many of them ordinary, occasionally extraordinary, and when we are facing these, we often find we need an outside perspective, some practical tools or some time and space set aside for taking care of ourselves.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Certified Yoga Therapist who specializes in the treatment of trauma, grief, and loss across the lifespan. With over 15 years of experience in mental health settings, I understand the negative impact of trauma and loss on emotional well-being, as well as the incredible ability we all have to heal.
In sessions, I integrate conventional psychotherapy techniques with experiential activities that strengthen the mind/body connection as a pathway to recovery. My work is influenced by neuroscience, rooted in yoga philosophy, and supported by research demonstrating that when we attend to and befriend our nervous system, we can successfully reduce or manage symptoms, increase self-confidence, and be compassionate towards others. Using this integrated therapeutic approach, I strive to help people retell their stories, create new meaning in life, and build greater connection with themselves and others.
Individualized sessions, based on your unique strengths and needs, are designed in partnership with you to address life’s challenges and further develop your hope and resiliency.
Integrated Movement Therapy Sessions include some talking, mindfulness activities, breath practices and accessible movement.

The yoga therapy components of my work are based on my certification in Integrated Movement Therapy (IMT ®), developed by Molly Lannon Kenny at The Samarya Center, not derived from my status as an RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance Registry.
