I have been immersed in the field of somatics for over 10 years as a dancer, student, facilitator, and now practitioner. My study of embodiment and psychology grew out of my fascination with movement, creative expression, and a curiosity about how both affect our wellbeing. I earned my Masters in Somatic Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Additional to a body-centered approach, my studies included attachment theory, mindfulness and psychodynamics. I have supplementary training in Contemporary Reichian Therapy—an intensive 4-year program focusing on emotional regulation. Previous experience encompasses both private practice settings and work with underprivileged communities inside the jail system and post-incarceration. I completed my movement training from Syzygy Dance project, which focuses on bringing play, creativity and expression into underserved settings. I have experience and a particular passion for studying and working with multicultural and immigration experiences.
