Health & Wellness Coaching that integrates physiology and psychology.
My holistic perspective merges the science of the body with the integrated understanding of the role of movement, mindset, self-awareness, and bio-individuality. And by merging the best of the Feldenkrais Method® with Functional Medicine focused Health Coaching, we'll lay the foundation for lasting change...
Discover how your movement habits are contributing to your pain and how to move without pain and more ease. This is more than just eliminating bio-mechanical stressors, it's getting to the heart of how you embody yourself in motion.
Certain lifestyle habits and choices over time result in metabolic imbalances which promote a more inflammatory environment. I'll help you to figure out how to make the diet and lifestyle changes that can reduce metabolic inflammation.
When pain occurs, the brain interprets and modulates these sensations like volume controls for the pain, by dialing it louder or quieting it down. You'll learn effective ways to control and re-regulate the volume controls.
Our bodies are designed to respond to our feelings. We'll explore how your emotions contribute to pain. You'll learn how to become aware of emotional triggers and how to reverse the pain brought on by emotions.
A mindset is a belief that biases how you think, feel, and act. You'll learn about how your mindset impacts your physiology, your choices, and your behaviors. And you'll discover how to shift your mindset for good.
Conscious Movements & Complex Pain…
Living with complex pain can be confusing and overwhelming. You may have suffered for years before receiving a diagnosis, or perhaps you are still searching for one. Even if you have a diagnosis, you may not know what to do with it. You might feel like you have completely lost control of your body, your health, and your life.
Often times doctors make suggestions on lifestyle changes that can help their patients feel better – things like managing or decreasing stress, eliminating inflammatory foods and making other dietary changes, improving quality of sleep, getting appropriate exercise, etc. These are all extremely important factors when treating complex pain, especially when it’s triggered by an autoimmune disorder, Fibromyalgia, or other chronic illnesses. But many patients leave the doctor’s office knowing what they should be doing, but don’t have any idea how to actually do it.
And that is where Conscious Movements meets Complex Pain. Our work together is not meant to take the place of working with a trusted medical professional, but rather to complement that work, and help you implement the treatment plan you’ve been given. Throughout that process, I’ll help you to make permanent changes that reduce your suffering and create a life that is full of health, hope, and happiness.

Our Work Together…
Changes don’t happen overnight, and it takes time to develop new habits. And the work I do as both a Feldenkrais Practitioner® and Functional Medicine Health Coach involves taking time to develop your awareness, expand your knowledge, and hone in on the skills you need to be successful. As part of that process, we’ll tap into the power of neuroplasticity to help you to rewire your pain and regain your life. Once you’ve mastered the process of working with yourself in this way, you’ll THRIVE.
I will be your guide and your coach. You will be the expert. Because nobody knows your body better than you. I will teach you principles and give you tools to help restore balance in your body. You will decide what works best and where you need the most help. We’ll use the gentle and mindful movements of the Feldenkrais Method, the power of Positive Psychology, and the theories of Functional Medicine to help you to uncover your habits of moving, thinking, sensing, and feeling. You will embody a sense of ease and grace.
I work with a limited number of clients at any one time. In part, this is because I request a commitment to at least 10-sessions. All of the work I do is about educating you and helping you to develop the skills and awareness necessary to no longer need my one-on-one services. Our work together is a process and most people work with me for 2-6 months.
The average cost of a session is $100-$125. However, I also offer partial scholarship to a select number of students/clients at any one time. So please, don't let the dollar signs be the reason that you don't book a free 20-minute Discovery Session.
