The root of my personal and professional life has been grounded in the process of healing, personal development and commitment to service. My passion for dance and love of maps have led me to the The Trager® Approach to Movement, the 5 Rhythms® Movement practice, various structured circles of sharing, and recently, the Advanced Energy Healing Protocols from the Energy Healing Institute. These maps have provided guidance through the unknown, a lens for understanding and self-awareness, and a path for exploration, self-discovery and personal evolution.
My nursing career, extending from 1980-1990, was the beginning of a life long journey of service in healthcare. Over time it became clear to me that I was much more interested and comfortable using my hands and intuition rather than relying on machines and medicine. The Trager Approach became my profession of choice and taught me to access my curiosity and follow the conversational wisdom of the body. The 5-Rhythms® Movement Practice, of which I have been deeply involved as a student and teacher since 1995, gave me profound appreciation for the wisdom and truth that our bodies reveal when movement is deeply authentic. Most recently, I have been certified through the Energy Healing Institute as an Energy Healing Practitioner. The skills of inquiry, listening, and trust in the wisdom of body that I have developed over decades, have assisted in making the invisable world of our energy bodies accessible and easily integrated into my Trager practice.
I currently live in Waterbury Center, Vermont, with my fiancee, and have two young adult children whose lives inspire me as they navigate this changing world.
