Professional statement



Rebecca’s clinical focus is on helping adult female identified dancers develop healthy relationships with their bodies and food. She guides clients in reconnecting with their bodies, often using the process of “embodiment,” a multilayered awareness of your body and how you connect to or relate to the world around you. Through the holistic practices of mind- body awareness, Rebecca educates her clients on how their emotions may sometimes be reflected through physical symptoms, often called psychosomatic symptoms.

Working with Rebecca, clients also receive guidance on eating in a self attuned way to manage disordered eating behaviors. She works from the Health at Every Size (HAES) perspective and helps clients understand the internal and external factors that contribute to disordered eating, body image issues and problems with self esteem.

Dancers are always on display, whether taking recreational classes at the studio or at rehearsal and especially during performances. Outside of the dance world, there’s the everyday societal expectations of how our bodies should be. Rebecca is familiar with the unique challenges dancers face on and off stage.


With her background in mental health and Applied Sports and Performance Psychology, Rebecca offers individual and group coaching sessions to adult dancers. Coaching sessions are available to help dancers of all levels achieve improved overall performance, using mental skills training.

Enhanced performance coaching sessions are individually tailored to the unique needs of each individual or group. The focus is not on the skill or technique, rather it’s on the psychological or mental aspects that may be hindering the dancer from performing at their intended level. Rebecca provides assistance in areas such as performance anxiety, perfectionism, injury and burnout prevention as well as performance identity and related areas.

Message to clients

I believe that we all have a purpose with our own shine. My work with you will first be to identify factors that have been dulling that shine, and then explore ways to polish it off so you can strut your stuff!

Life today has us living constantly on the go. It can be easy to forget to take time to reflect on our thoughts and emotions. Sometimes we may miss a meal because we are so caught up with work, or find that we have overbooked ourselves and now overwhelmed with pressures of deadlines or too many social and professional commitments. Being mindful may mean tuning into your body expressions or paying attention to your thoughts and emotions as you are in different situations. reach out and let's get figure this out!
