As a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, I have been helping people do what they want to do with greater ease and coordination and with less pain and injury since 2009. I’ve helped my students do things as varied as get into and out of their cars more easily or stick the landing of a back flip without causing back pain. I’ve helped people with brain injuries and neurological disorders function better. I’ve helped athletes and performance artists overcome injuries and performance plateaus.

Following an injury-plagued college volleyball career, I came to the Feldenkrais Method® seeking relief from chronic, debilitating pain. With my first Feldenkrais lesson, I experienced incredible pain-relief. As I continued with the method, the familiar pain was replaced with nearly forgotten feelings of agility, spontaneity, speed, and power. I came for the pain-relief, but I stayed for the excitement of learning to move better than I ever had before! I now have a reliably effective way to relieve pain, heal and prevent injuries, and pick up and improve skills in sports, dance, and everyday activities.

Whether you want to improve specific skills or just find greater comfort in your body, I can help you too. I’d love to spare you unnecessary pain, injury, and performance limitations and help you (re)discover/enhance the pleasure of easy, graceful movement. I enjoy working with people of any age and ability who have a high level of curiosity.
