I’m a movement therapist with a unique gift for uncovering the habits and restrictions that lead to discomfort in our daily lives. I view the body as a puzzle with a dizzying array of moving parts; smoothing out one area will often allow movement in another.
My studio is at Health in Harmony, in the heart of Urbana. I work closely with other body workers there and elsewhere, integrating movement with other body-based therapies.
I work to bring the principles of human movement science into life outside of the gym. My clientele come from all ages and walks of life, often with a specific goal in mind. I’m particularly strong in helping people deal with foot pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, sacro-iliac joint issues, hypermobility, and many forms of chronic pain.
As a Nutritious Movement certified Restorative Exercise specialist I’ve extensively studied the methods of Katy Bowman, biomechanist. After years of personal practice, I completed my initial training in 2017. I’m constantly studying and deepening my practice, and completed 90 hours of additional training in restorative exercise in 2019.
I’m also a certified Roll Model Method practitioner, and am convinced that the principles of myofascial release are key to improving whole body movement.
In 2019 I earned NASM’s Corrective Exercise Specialist designation
