About Me

My Background and Purpose

I am a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC), Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist (BC-DMT) and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). I specialize in working with athletes and performing artists to remove mental and emotional barriers in service of strengthening peak performance and reaching their fullest potential. My approach centers round the mind/body connection. I employ creative, trauma-informed, neurobiologically based approaches to achieving one’s very best version of themselves. I see the creativity, beauty and potential in each individual and helps them access it within themselves. I love to work with clients on setting goals and moving toward achieving them as they heal from the past and find balance in the now and the future ahead of them.

Leadership and Scholarship  

I hold a BA in Psychology and Dance from Denison University and a master’s degree (MA) in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling from Columbia College Chicago. I am certified in Laban Movement Analysis and Movement Pattern Analysis. 

I work with athletes and performing artists on all levels from professional to youth. I currently serve as the Certified Mental Performance Consultant for The Chicago Dogs baseball team in Rosemont, IL. I have more than 15 years of service in higher education as a prevention and wellness specialist, serving Division I athletes.

I am an adjunct faculty member in the College of Education at DePaul University teaching in the area of sport psychology.
