Dance/Movement Therapist Julie has had a lifelong journey with movement, bringing her experiences within creative, performative, and therapeutic practices. She facilitates an embodied, whole-hearted, and compassionate practice of fiercely approaching vulnerability in order to release emotional blocks, re-pattern limiting beliefs, access inherent creativity, and empower an internal source of healing, transformation, and abundance.
My passion is to guide these individuals toward a deeper understanding of their truth and purpose. We tap into different aspects of the psyche, stored in the body, that have been silenced, shrunken, or scared. My role is call upon these aspects, in a safe + nonjudgmental space, to express, liberate, and uplift.
