About Emily

 

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.

My private practice and group work offers a heart centered approach with a focus on mind-body-emotional health and intuitive listening. I have been working with individuals and groups for the past 13 years and also draw upon tools from Mindful Self-Compassion(MSC™) and Somatic Experiencing®. In addition, I currently work with the nonprofit SeekHealing which focuses on healing addiction through human connection.

I am a graduate of The University of Michigan with a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre and have studied The Alexander Technique for the past 19 years.  I was AmSAT certified as an Alexander Teacher in 2008 and I became a certified Daring Way™ Facilitator in the work of Brené Brown in 2014.
