The most common question I get is, “What’s a movement coach? Is that like a personal trainer?”
While yes, I am a certified personal trainer, what I do is unlike anything you’ll find in a gym setting. We’ll work together to achieve more than just giving you a six-pack belly or bigger biceps.
I’ll help you build an aware and empowered relationship with your body. One that is pain-free, strong, durable, and can take any stressors you throw at it without blinking an eye.
I want you to feel great in your skin. For your muscles and fascia to slide and glide with ease and your daily movements to feel, well… easy. We’ll spend time getting to know your nervous system, and I’ll teach you techniques to relax your mind and keep it healthy and resilient.
These sessions can involve everything from strength and conditioning training, balance work, gait functionality, mobility training, life coaching, breath work, daily movement pattern change, flexibility, myofascial release techniques, meditation, Tapping, etc….
I structure your sessions completely unique for you individually.
Some come to me with specific goals in mind such as converting to barefoot/ minimalist shoes or to help rebuild their core strength after pregnancy. Others are looking to move their body better in the garden, or feel younger and more vibrant in their movement ability. While still others are looking to relax their body and mind.
Whatever your need, within this fluid design, my goal is to help create a holistic feeling of clarity, stability, and unrestricted movement within your body and mind.
Full 3-hour Movement Assessment
This is the place to start.
Full Movement Assessment: $200
This is a single session where we’ll spend 3-hours to go through a full movement assessment to see what your body can do and what it needs help with. We’ll also have a detailed conversation about your body movement goals, injury history, and what you’d like to do (feel) in the future.
A single session may be all you need if you have a particular issue, want to work very specifically on one thing, and wish to do the work on your own at home.
If however, you are reaching for larger movement goals and would like more sessions with me then see below for session pricing.
Please feel free to email me if you have questions about what the appointment may entail.
Movement Assessment Session: $200
Movement Assessment Session with one follow-up session: $287
Movement Assessment and 3 follow-up sessions: $397

The MoveU Program is a complete 12-session (25 hour) program.
The first session will be a complete 3-hour movement analysis and discussion of what you are hoping to achieve. Then we’ll begin the individually tailored work of changing the way your body moves and feels with subsequent 2-hour sessions.
This work is for any activity level; advanced movers or even those who’ve never been big movers in their life. We’ll take it from wherever you are and move accordingly.
While two-hours seems like a long time, it passes in the blink of an eye as we look at different movement patterns in your life and we revisit exercises making sure form is great and full understanding is happening. We go at your pace, whether that’s fast-paced rabbit or slower-stride turtle. I’m here to help get you to your finest movement potential.
This program includes a full 3- hour movement assessment.
11 2-hour sessions in the studio with me.

Strategic Life Coaching and Tapping Sessions (not a workout):
This kind of appointment does not involve a fitness aspect. While I include this type of coaching in my regular coaching practices up above, this session is for someone who needs a little more time with just the Life Coaching portion.
If you’re wondering what the difference is between a Life Coach and a Psychologist or Therapist… The easiest, most simplistic answer is to say that when you are completely overwhelmed with life and feel you have nowhere to turn, you would seek the help of a professional therapist. A life coach comes into play when you have a goal you’d like to make, but need help to get there, or perhaps you have a pattern you’d like to change in your life. I’m here to help you break it down into small, achievable pieces and show you how to get there step by step.
Tapping (also called EFT -Emotional Freedom Technique) is a wonderful way to reduce tension and worry, move through negative emotions and help get you quickly and easily back into a relaxed mind. It involves tapping on acupressure points to release the energy built up by those small daily frustrations and can be highly effective. I’ve been using and teaching it for 15 years. I’m excited to share this amazing technique with you.
Each session runs 60 minutes
Single Session: $60

Whole Dancer Program- for Young Dancers and Athletes:
I work regularly with dancers and athletes ages 7-18 years on building strength, flexibility, and mobility. This kind of work is imperative to keep them injury-free and progressing. I offer special pricing for children because I know how much money you already spend on dance and sports and I’m a parent too. I get it.
Because of this special pricing, I take only a limited amount of young dancers and athletes each year. Email me to see if I have availability for your student.
Studio Cancellation Policy:
I understand that you have a busy life, and can’t always know ahead of time when a child may wake up sick or a last minute work emergency calls you into the office. Likewise, I’m a one person studio. I do not have subs that can jump in and teach a session or class for me if the unexpected happens. So, I’m of the mind that I do not charge for cancellations, even last minute ones. I do ask, out of respect for my time that you let me know as soon as you can so I’m not waiting around. And I hope you understand if I ever need to re-schedule a session or cancel a class for similar reasons. I would never do it lightly. But, I’m a realist, so of course, there will be times. 😉
