The Alexander Technique has helped me become comfortable in my own skin and given me tools to live into my aspirations. I am committed to supporting your growth and self-care process, along with my own.
I enjoy helping people from all walks of life learn to access ease, balance and resilience to fuel their creativity, strength and freedom.
