As a Guild Certified Feldenkrais PractitionerCM , I've been helping people do what they want to do with greater ease and coordination and without causing pain and injury, since 2009. I've helped my clients do things as varied as get into and out of their cars more easily, rehabilitate after surgeries more quickly, or stick the landing of a back flip without causing back pain. I've helped people with neurological injuries and disorders function better. I've helped athletes and performance artists overcome injuries and performance challenges.
As an athlete who has struggled with debilitating injuries, chronic pain, and performance limitations, I understand the frustration and despair that can come with those problems. When I first discovered the Feldenkrais Method®, I was seeking relief from chronic pain following my injury-plagued college volleyball career. At the time, I had no desire to ever again play the game I once loved; I only hoped to live with a more tolerable level of discomfort.
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. Memories of the fun I once enjoyed playing volleyball (before the game had become a job that was about hard work and pushing through pain) also returned to me. And I returned to playing the game. I came to the method for the pain-relief, but I stayed for the excitement of learning to move better than I ever had before! While not in the condition nor the shape I was in as a Division I athlete, three decades later, I'm far more coordinated. I continue to use the Feldenkrais Method to prevent and heal injuries, relieve pain, 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 get amazing results with this method too. My skill is in detecting how your compulsive movement habits are getting in the way of what you want to do, and then helping you get them out of your way. I would love to spare you unnecessary pain, injury, and performance limitations and help you (re)discover or enhance the pleasure of easy, graceful movement.
I enjoy working with people of any age and ability, who have a high level of curiosity.
