I seek to be authentic in my work and in how I relate to others. I don’t pretend to be something that I am not and intentionally create a space for you simply just be yourself. “Just meet me where I am and I’ll do the same for you” is often at the heart of many of my conversations with clients and friends. From this place of authenticity – so much more opens up to us that often remains hidden or ignored.

Being-in-Movement®, created by Dr. Paul Linden, will teach you to develop an integrated mindbody state that embodies grace, power and radiant awareness to help improve performance. Informed by the Japanese Martial art of Aikido, BIM approaches the body as both an objective process governed by rules of physics and biology and a subjective process of lived consciousness governed by rules of awareness, emotion and energy. I began my training in the Japanese martial art of Aikido with Dr. Linden over a decade ago, and most recently, was awarded Level One training in BIM by Dr. Linden in March 2010. Paul is a wonderful teacher and a true innovator.
