       Testimonials

 

"Authentic Movement with Rebecca informs my body, speech and mind/spirit. Her wise and gentle care makes for a relaxed class in which I feel safe to explore any which way of expressing myself with dance.  It is such a gift to move again!  It had been decades since I allowed myself to even try creative dance.  Heartfelt thanks; I learned so much about myself and myself in relation with others." - M.M.

"Rebecca provides a grounded, open, and neutral space to explore, witness and clarify one's personal journey through movement. She is responsive to students, recognizing that together we create our container. Coming to her classes is like a breath of fresh air held lovingly in the atmosphere of our great mother earth - both freeing and protected at the same time. She naturally cultivates a deep level of trust which allows students to move what needs to be moved and share what needs to be shared. Each class has held an element of transformation, sometimes light and sometimes bold - whatever seems to be needed on the next step of the journey." - Summer 

"Rebecca has mastered the balance between leader and listener. She is astute, gentle, and playful. I instantly feel safe and at ease when I am in her space. Her giving nature and expertise help me feel trust in my own process, and give me a sense of freedom I don't experience with other teachers. My experiences with her as a healer have been profound." - A.K.

“In our Authentic Movement classes, Rebecca holds an egalitarian space with elegant calmness and steady composure. She has an uncanny ability to include herself as a seeker and participant along with us, in full presence, spontaneity and vulnerability. She seamlessly offers the necessary details of pacing  and structure,  the modelling of unconditional respect for all of us and the much welcomed mead of inclusion.”  - L.S.

Hello and welcome.  Dance/Movement Therapy provides a holistic way to work with the interconnections of physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well-being. Our bodies are impacted by our emotional states and our responses to life's challenges.  Movement becomes an additional language to build bridges to deeper personal insight. 

 

I would love to help you explore your inner wisdom, reduce the impact of stress, find your life purpose, uncover and address any hidden trauma stored in your body, and transform limiting beliefs/patterns to reach your full potential.

 

From over 25 years of experience working in a variety of settings with people of all ages, I have experienced the power of movement, creativity and play as a source for change and transformation.  I believe that a positive outcome in therapy is based on building a strong, supportive relationship through deep listening, reflection and compassion. 

 

Sessions can include talking, movement, art, experiential learning, play and laughter.  (Yes, I am a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader).  I am ready to support and guide you in exploring your own inner wisdom.
