Your grief is sacred.

It lives in your body.

I'm Grace. 

Until the winter of 2018, I was a budding dance/movement therapist, privileged to have suffered very few losses. Then my mom died from metastatic breast cancer, and my world shattered. Yet even as I felt myself break apart, the outside world kept moving at an often unbearable rate. It hurt like hell, and I turned to my body for solace. 

 This gut-wrenching process ultimately resulted in a transformational shift of mind, body and spirit. As a result, I came to believe that metabolizing grief through movement, ritual and the creative process is essential to integrating grief, building resilience and transforming our communities. 

Grief is messy and ever-evolving, and I'm honored to witness and hold your process, exactly as you are. I'm so glad you're here. 

 
 

Why Embodied Grief?

All grief is embodied because all of us have bodies. This is why grief is so visceral and often painful. Yet, active attention to the body is largely left out of the larger conversations on grief and of therapeutic grieving practices. I use this term to actively call attention to the ways our bodies experience grief and can be an ally in our healing journeys. If you've left more traditional grief groups/therapy feeling stale or unsatisfied, this might be the space for you.
