Andrea is a co-founder of Open Floor International, a school devoted to embodied movement that includes a Professional Continuing Education program for Therapists called Therapy in Motion.

The medium of Andrea’s work is Movement. And through the moving body, her work’s aim is towards emotional and relational intelligence, skillful regulation of lived experience, vitality, community building, meditation, artistic expression, soul searching and spiritual practice.

Andrea has approached embodiment through many doorways: Bodywork, yoga, dance, hiking, being a mother, a lover, Somatic psychotherapy, meditation, professional trainings, academic programs, and constant dedicated practice.

The following areas have had an enormous influence on Andrea’s work:
