Director of Creative Action Seminars
Creative Action Seminars
a teacher who believes that by having joy and connection through various bodywork methods , a person can heal the mind, body and spirit.
I developed Experiential Movement Therapy through a lifetime of experience, training and passion for my core belief: move the body and the mind will follow.
My early training at The Boston Conservatory of Music And SUNY Purchase produced a joint degree in Dance and Psychology. I had a joyously successful 25 year career with a dozen dance companies, and also taught on the faculties of Lincoln Center, Leonard Bernstein Center, The Grammy Foundations and many universities. I have appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, Bravo and PBS.
I have always had a fascination with human behavior and what motivates us to navigate life’s challenges in a healing and effective way. I was seeking relief from extreme dance injuries which lead to my advanced certifications in Pilates, Bowen Therapy, and Medical Qi Gong. I have also completed a 7-year training at the Estuary School of Healing Arts earning degrees in Auric Healing, Kabalistic Studies and Pastoral Counseling.
I am an alumni of Naropa University’s prestigious Authentic Leadership Program. For my thesis, I developed a series of workshops that became the foundation of Experiential Movement Therapy.
Building on my experience developing Experiential Movement Therapy workshops at The Estuary, Onsite, The Recovery Ranch and YANA, I launched Creative Action Seminars, a new workshop company based in Nashville, TN.
The goal is to joyfully lead participants in finding and maintaining their center, collaborating with others through the creative process and honing techniques to live a grounded, centered life in a continuously healing body.
Often I hear that clients feel more balance and centered. Anxiety is reduced and they feel like their bodies move more freely and with less pain.
