PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

My professional experience in psychology, somatics and the arts spans over twenty years and includes work in education, private practice and community intervention. I obtained my M.A. in Engaged Humanities with Emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I served as Program Director and Core Faculty at Tamalpa Institute in California and continue to supervise advanced students. I teach as adjunct faculty at SouthWestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I am the creator of Mythic Life: Embodying Wisdom, Beauty and Courage. Mythic Life is the fruit of 20 years of practice. I wrote an  unpublished collection of academic essays, Somaphilia: Re-membering the Soul and the Aesthetics of Being, which is my masters’ thesis.

I am a registered Expressive Arts Therapist  through the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association and I am a registered Somatic Movement Therapist and Educator from ISMETA -the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association. Since 2014 I have served on the ISMETA Board of Directors. Currently, I am co-VicePresident, Co-chair of the Professional standards Committee, and Co-chair of the Communications Committee. I enjoy collaborating with the ISMETA Board of Directors to grow the field of somatic movement and advance the profession.
