DANCE MOVEMENT & CREATIVE THERAPIES
Dance/movement therapy is a profession that is over 60 years old, which involves Master's level training in movement and psychotherapy. It uses movement and the body as the main healing medium with a vast variety of client groups. It is based on the belief that body and mind are interconnected, and their dialogue reflects crucial aspects of our lives that exist beyond words.
I have been a dance/movement therapist for over ten years, and have lectured in Argentina, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Puerto Rico and United Kingdom. I am also a clinical supervisor and lecturer in the area. I have also taught and collaborated with other creative arts therapy students and professionals.
