If you’re feeling stuck (physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically), IMT may be the creative, healing approach to help you get un-stuck, and learn new tools for a more centered life. Integrated Movement Therapy® is a therapeutic framework guided by the philosophies of enough-ness, partnership, and mind-body-spirit connection.
IMT helps clients feel capable, competent, empowered to make positive changes, and strengthen their resiliency. IMT is a healing method based in yoga and neuroscience that will help you make behavior shifts to move toward optimal well-being. IMT facilitates exploration of your physical, energetic, mental and emotional experiences through movement, breathing and mindfulness techniques, and creative expression. IMT can be used to cultivate a sense of embodiment and self-trust.
My priority and passion is to serve LGBTQIA+ people. Queer and trans folks deserve safe spaces to be seen, validated, and met exactly as they are. My areas of work include: Mind/body/spirit connection and awareness, individuation, identity formation, living with chronic illness/multiple diagnoses, self-care, Yoga and mindfulness, spirituality/meaning, life transitions.
Sometimes people use IMT in conjunction with other therapies; sometimes IMT takes the place of other therapies; and sometimes IMT simply stands alone.
All sessions are guided by IMT’s six core principals - structure and continuity, physical stimulation, language stimulation, social interaction, self-calming and direct self-esteem building - for a whole-person therapeutic approach.
Every IMT session is individualized to the client - so one person’s session may look very different from another’s! Adult sessions are 60 minutes and include some form of talking, movement, and creative expression. Child and teen sessions range from 30-60 minutes, with more time spent in movement based games and creative activities. Every IMT session ends with a few moments for rest and relaxation.
I recommend beginning with IMT sessions once a week, to develop familiarity with the approach and build rapport. Then you may choose to continue at the interval that best suits your needs, and schedule.
