I am a Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist and Aging & Dementia Care Advisor with two decades of professional experience working with older individuals who have a range of cognitive and physical abilities and are from various cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. I feel strongly that regular therapeutic engagement, the creative arts, and a welcoming, sensory-inviting setting are key components to wellness. I am committed to helping promote healthier aging and overall quality of life for older adults and individuals with dementia and their care partners, using a person-centered, Dance/movement therapy and sensory hybrid approach.

Sensory Hybrid Approach

A deeper human connection.
A heightened level of responsiveness.
A stronger sense of self
.

Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT)

“…the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, for the purpose of improving health and well-being.”
