About

The Work of StillDancing…

The foundation of StillDancing is the psychology of C.G. Jung and his understanding of the relationship between the psyche and the body.

Steeped in BodySoul Rhythms; based on the collaborative work of Marion Woodman, Mary Hamilton, and Ann Skinner, I am a California licensed psychotherapist (MFT 33574), consultant, and educator in private practice.

My experience began as a child, singing and studying vocal music, later evolving into Theatre Arts.  Years of theatre arts training focused on acting, voice, and movement for the theatre. The theatrical emphasis on character study and development provided a natural bridge to psychology.

At the University of Hawaii, I began teaching courses in Human Development. In private practice there, I became acquainted with the infinite IMG_3327possibilities of world views in a multicultural context.

As an intern working with children, it became clear that there was a need to find a way to communicate, other than words. This led me to the study of nonverbal therapies, Sandplay, to Jung, and eventually to dance and movement therapies. After 28 years working with children, teens, men and women, and women’s groups, my work is a life’s synthesis and a happy return to my origins in song, movement, art, poetry, and the theatre.

Currently, Dreams are a centerpiece in my work mandala.
