I am a Philadelphia, PA based Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist specializing in Aging, Dementia, and Care Partner SupportI am also Director of the NEW Creative Arts Therapy Minor Undergraduate Program at University of the Arts. This administrative role includes strategic planning, teaching, advising, and the development of a robust, inclusive new Creative Arts Therapy Minor curriculum.

I have over two decades of clinical experience working primarily with older adults, individuals living with dementia, and their care partners, across various cultures and with diverse backgrounds. I use a person-centered, movement, and sensory hybrid approach, to help connect and EngAge. I fully support the creative arts therapies, collaborative processes, and arts accessibility for all.

My Approach

A deeper human connection.
SenseAble engagement.

Therapeutic movement experiences, creative suggestions for support and empowerment, and therapeutic, evidence-based recommendations to help communities, individuals, and their care partners navigate life changes and move towards wellness.
