Expressive Movement Support Circle

We live in a world where our bodies are under constant threat — racial trauma and oppression can cause us to feel disconnected and unsafe in our bodies.

They can also increase symptoms of anxiety, depression, and post traumatic stress disorder. ⠀

As black folks we can't address our mental health without also addressing our bodies. ⠀

Here we explore connection, safety, and nervous system regulation through movement. 

I help black women connect with their bodies, so they have a greater sense of what it feels like to be well. 

And by well, I mean vital, alive, and whole. 

Having lived with depression for more than 20 years, this strong black woman knows a thing or two about feeling numb and disconnected from both my body and my emotions. 

I am the queen of pushing through with a straight face because if I don't do it, who else is gonna make a way outta no way!

If you're here, I imagine you are too! 

An emotional wellness coach with advanced degrees in both Dance/Movement Psychotherapy and Holistic Nutrition.

Wanna be queens together, in healing rather than suffering? 

Cool, me too!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a dancer to join the circle?

No. The only requirement is that you are human and interested in exploring the ways in which your body interacts and responds to your emotions and life situations.

This exploration can happen in small and big ways — from breath, to noticing your heart beat, to opening and closing your hands, or bigger movements. 

Is this therapy?

Not quite as there will not be any formal diagnoses. 

We will, however,  focus on mental and emotional well-being and spend a fair amount of time exploring emotion regulation. 

It's a good idea to continue working with a therapist individually, if there are issues requiring more personalized support. 

how large is the circle?

Good question! 

The circle is limited to 12 women. Enrollment will close once all 12 spots are filled, or on July 15, 2020 11:59 pm EST.
