Arts & Healing

Body-Mind Centering® is an innovative approach to health, movement and bodywork for infants, children and adults. You'll discover your postural strengths and weaknesses and learn new ways to think, feel and move. BMC is based on two premises. One, that the mind is inseparable from and centered in the body; and two, that through the body the mind can be explored and expressed.  Throughout each session, I will  attune to your physical and verbal responses to provide safety and structure. My goal is for your session to be safe enough for you to do deep and satisfying work to help you heal and grow in body, mind and spirit.

 ​     BMC is  the work of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and was developed in fruitful exploration with her many students and teachers. Individual sessions are custom-tailored to suit your needs using a combination of hands-on work, movement and guided imagery drawn from your body systems and developmental preferences.

Somatic Movement Therapy and Education represents a variety of approaches to the process of awakening awareness of the human body (soma) in movement. As a registered practitioner, I guide individuals and groups into inner experiences of their bodies, deepening an understanding of self in motion. This transformational learning process can include sound, breath, touch and imagery in addition to physical movement. My approach to Somatic Movement Therapy and Education combines BMC with dance/movement therapy and expressive arts therapy to support you to find increased health and wellness, expanded creative expression and integrated learning and transformation.

Expressive Arts Therapy is a form of Counseling that combines the expressive arts with counseling techniques to support individuals and groups to explore practical, personalized, creative solutions to life’s challenges. Expressive Arts experiences include visual arts, music, drama, dance/movement and writing to expand creative expression, deepen self awareness and  increase vitality.

Holistic Counseling  With over 20 years of counseling and holistic living experience, I will provide both creative and clinically sound support for a wide range of life issues.  I also specialize in Women’s empowerment, body image and eating concerns, LGBTQ concerns, anxiety, and life transition concerns.
