About Emily

“Emily takes The Alexander Technique to the next level by integrating The Daring Way, and it is through this combination that she truly address the Whole Self. She’s helped me to discover deeper connections between my mind and body, and perhaps most importantly, has helped me to foster my self-compassion.”
—Andrew Fuchs

Throughout my life, I’ve struggled with habits and blocks that I wanted to change. For a long time I felt helpless to change them. My daily routine was filled with tensions and triggers I couldn’t get rid of manifesting as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and exhaustion. I often felt I was enslaved by my constant chattering mind and tension filled body. Inside somehow I knew these patterns weren’t “who I am” and yet outside they would take over time and again.

It took me a while to realize how The Alexander Technique and The Daring Way™ were unlocking me. At first I only felt relieved and more comfortable in my own skin. Then I began to notice these practices influencing everything and teaching me to help myself.

I believe wholeheartedly in helping people discover their own answers.

I have found The Alexander Technique and The Daring Way™ to provide some of the clearest most consistent daily tools to inspire change.

I am a graduate of The University of Michigan with a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre and I have studied The Alexander Technique for the past 17 years. I was AmSAT certified as an Alexander Teacher in 2008 and became a certified Daring Way™ Facilitator in the work of Brené Brown in 2014.

My private practice and group work combines The Alexander Technique and The Daring Way™ with a focus on mind-body-emotion intelligence. I also utilize teachings in Somatic Experiencing® as taught by Betsy Polatin in the Actor’s Secret training. My clients currently work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in film, TV as well as the corporate world. I have created group classes for organizations such as Hilton Worldwide, Shift | Integrative Medicine, The University of Michigan, The Freeman Studio, NYU Tisch, NYU Gallatin, and Chelsea Piers Gym.
