I am a seasoned, licensed psychotherapist, ecotherapist and dance/movement therapist, and have been pioneering somatic ecotherapy for the last decade. In 2010, I founded The Earthbody Institute, a professional, educational, and transformational forum dedicated to the cultivation of dynamic mutual relationships with the natural world. The Work that Reconnects is a foundational aspect of all of our national and international workshops and trainings. In all of our programs, we facilitate the creation of a strong earth-honoring community, to support connecting to the sacredness of all beings. My main influences include Hakomi Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy, Somatic Ecotherapy, Dance Movement Therapy, The Work that Reconnects and earth-based trainings from The School of Lost Borders.
