About Sally



My work focuses on helping people discover and become who they truly are. The Alexander Technique helps that happen in sometimes amazing ways, and I also use other tools, often in combination with Alexanderís work.

The Alexander Technique can help people do whatever it is they do with greater ease and flexibility of mind as well as of body. With time and practice, under the guidance of a teacherís gentle, non-manipulative touch and verbal instruction, students can learn to stop interfering with their natural coordination. Their movement becomes freer, their senses more acute, and their thinking clearer.

People from all walks of life have found Alexanderís work to be beneficial, often in delightfully surprising ways!

Music has been my passion and the focus of my teaching for over 30 years. My own training was in piano, organ, voice, and theory, and I have worked in the church and in the academic arena as teacher, conductor, and performer.

Yet my musical tastes range far afield from my classical training. As a teacher of the Alexander Technique, I have worked with instrumentalists of many types (from classical and popular music scenes) and singers in particular, having been trained as a classical singer and trained others in my years of teaching at the college level. My workshop/class, Finding Your Voice, uses the singing and speaking voice as a way of self-expression and self-discovery, whether or not you sing.

I draw on my experience as a performing artist and my knowledge of the Alexander Technique to help other musicians decrease or eliminate performance anxiety and prevent or heal from performance-related injuries. In the process, many find they move to a new level of mastery.

Story and Myth have shaped our lives in many ways, although we are usually unaware of the extent of their influence. Discovering our formative stories is crucial to knowing our True Selves because the archetypes from these stories are powerful agents of hurt and of healing.

Energy Work is a term I use to refer to my work in balancing and clearing a personís energy field. My training has been in methods of Healing Touch © and through study in the Barbara Brennan tradition at The Estuary in Nashville. Energy work often has a restorative and revelatory effect not achieved by other means. It can open whole new realms of experience, and lead to a greater sense of the Divine in all things.
