Jacqueline is a bridge builder, a mover, wellness guide, space holder, embodiment wizard, arts educator, and an alchemist that helps people to transform the physical, mental, emotional and energetic realms of being human.
She has been offering support and guidance for almost 30 years rooted in her skills, training, and experience in therapeutic, mind body, and energy practices. Her work draws upon these, integrating the wisdom of mindfulness, dance, music, counseling, somatics, ritual, witnessing practices, communication work and more. Along with her trainings, she has been deeply informed by her time and careers as a professional dancer & performer, touring musician, world traveller, and photographer. All paths have allowed her to continually grow her work and how she supports people.
As a teacher, Jacqueline understands the call to ally others and the potency of the space we create together. As a dancer, she feels the wisdom of the physical body and the deeper layers that movement touches. As a musician, she taps into the powerful tools of sound, voice, vibration, rhythm, and resonance. As a performer, she believes in the transformative nature of imagination, play, magic, and the potential of the mind to create. As a traveller, mentor, and educator she has experienced the essential nature of our diversity as humans as well as our common threads. As a student of life, she continues to learn and be inspired...fueled by her curiosity and commitment to supporting others with the variety of tools we all have access to.
Jacqueline believes in using these same tools in her own life and what she offers is based on years of seeing the difference it makes for others as well as herself. Each of us is unique and the path we take is personal. Wherever she goes and whoever she works with, one of her strengths is to adapt the tools to meet the person or situation.
Jacqueline has lived a full life being trained professionally in somatics, meditation, group counsel, conflict transformation, therapeutic nutrition, and been mentored in spiritual guidance. She has been further trained through decades of facilitation experience, research, and inspired by other amazing teachers.
Her greatest gifts that she offers are safe spaces for individuals to touch into authentic expression, learning more about their own edges of vulnerability, and supporting them towards living into their own personal growth and understanding.
She believes in biology and science, and all that we can measure. And she believes in the power of love, compassion, and so much more that we cannot measure... the brilliance that asks us to trust and believe in our own felt experience on the deepest levels of self.
