I had chronic lower back pain as an adolescent due to scoliosis. After chiropractors and massage therapists provided only temporary relief, I discovered the Alexander Technique. I was so impressed with the Alexander principles that I decided to pursue Alexander work as my career goal. I went to London to do a three-year training program at the School for Alexander Studies. My back trouble completely disappeared by the end of my training and I came to appreciate other benefits of the Technique when faced with the challenges of parenting and other stressors of adulthood.
I have lectured about this work at a variety of medical settings including Mt. Sinai Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Tufts Dental School. I’ve also taught group classes and workshops at the New England Conservatory of Music, Wellesley College, Brown University, Jewish Theological Seminary and the Eileen Fisher Corporate Office.
After active practices in Boston, St. Paul, and Providence, my husband and I took the empty-nest plunge and moved to New York City. I currently maintain a private practice on the Upper East Side. Besides English, I am comfortable giving Alexander lessons in French, Spanish or Yiddish.
