LCSW #95345
Bio
I'm a queer identified therapist and I have a passion for helping people who seek a more meaningful life and who want to change. I work with people who feel stuck and want to get the hell out of a rut. I’ve been there, so I get it, and I know how painful it is. I can help you navigate this often nonsensical and chaotic world and develop a relationship with yourself that feels good and grounded and nourishing. With that in place, anything is possible.

Through my many experiences both personally and professionally, I have seen people in many life transitions and have experienced the joys and sorrow that come with each of those. I would be deeply honored to meet you where you are at in your life and help you grow to where you want to be.
Services Summary

I offer individual counseling to folks in both the office, outside in local parks, and via telehealth. I work with a variety of individuals, with a particular focus on those who are highly sensitive and in the LGBTQIA+ community. What does a highly sensitive person look like? Is that you? If you often feel or hear that you’re “too sensitive,” find it hard to take criticism, feel overwhelmed by daily tasks that you think should be simple, are easily overstimulated by the world, or you find yourself wanting to be heard but you’re too scared to take up space, this might be a trait that will resonate with you.

I use a holistic approach that incorporates mindfulness and body-based work. Together we can strengthen and develop your relationship with yourself, so that the chaos of the world doesn’t feel so heavy. Together we can challenge the notion that you have to be perfect and we’ll find ways to empower you to be confident and to take up the space you deserve.

Bio
I am a certified Holistic Arts Practitioner who came into this field through my extensive background as a professional choreographer and dancer as well as comprehensive training in Holistic Coaching, Ecotherapy and EFT. I drew from this broad background to create the BIOdancePhlia Method.
Services Summary

I take nature to people where they are and people to nature with a focus on what science has just begun to scratch the surface in identifying with regards to the depth of our connection to nature which brings to light the harm that the human race is experiencing from that disconnect. The BdP programs are designed to enhance teamwork and leadership through workshops and retreats in educational, residential, community and corporate settings. The 'Honoring Truth of Age Program' (http://jeanndeford.com/index.php/honoring-elderhood/honoring-truth-of-age/) utilizes the BdP method and is designed to inspire today’s elder population to learn and explore what it is to transition from ‘old’ to ‘Elder’ and reimagine by THEIR design what a thriving Elderhood Community looks like. During this collaboration a deep communicative connection with other living systems is revealed and the threshold of over all health, well-being and creative expression is crossed culminating in a BdP's 'Bridging Earthland Ceremony'. BIOdancePhilia is 'Life's-dance-Connecting to Life', it IS a dance between the Body, Soul & Earth that by design embraces an intergenerational perspective intended to deepen the bond that we all share with other living systems..
