I am a dance/movement therapist and embodied grief aficionado originally from Philly and residing in Chicago. I was called to this work from the experience of losing my mom halfway through the first semester of my master's program. Feeling as though my body was broken but needing to continue the accelerated pace of my program, I found solace in my body and the ritualizing of my grief. As a result, I experienced a profound spiritual awakening, which ultimately led me to complete my thesis on spirituality and embodied grief. I believe that grieving is a sacred process, one that requires specific attention and care. Holding intentional space for embodied grief has the potential to transform our relationship with ourselves, our bodies, the loved ones we've lost and even seemingly unrelated past traumas. I offer resources for ritualizing, attending to and working through embodied grief.
