About Heidi

Originally from the U.S., I moved to Montreal to further pursue my career as a professional dancer. After the birth of my son, I retired from my 13 year long career to become a stay-at-home mom. I later found work as a freelance copywriter and part-time dance teacher.

 

By the time my son was in second grade, it became apparent that he was having difficulty at school. His learning challenges and eventual dyslexia diagnosis sent me on a path to discover ways to find healing so he could live up to the full potential I knew in my heart was inside him. While some modalities we tried were helpful, others I found lacked empathy and were ultimately ineffective. The Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® offered a more humane and promising path forward for us. After a few months of ABM, my son had made significant progress not only in his school work but in his overall demeanor.

 

I had begun to realize how very much needed awareness of this work is, not only locally but across the globe. My background in dance seemed a perfect fit with ABM’s use of movement to wake up and rewire the brain. Looking for a new path forward for myself, I made the decision to pursue my ABM certification so I could help other children with special needs and their parents. 

 

After starting my training, I soon experienced firsthand the power of this work. Not only have old pain and injuries begun to heal, ABM has empowered me both emotionally and cognitively. Currently certified to work with adults, I plan to continue my training to become a pediatric ABM practitioner in the future.

What Heidi's Clients are Saying

"Heidi's ABMNM Transformational Movement class was an adjustment for me, as I am used to pushing myself in yoga and stretching, sometimes to injury. She guides you through the concept of small movements, and reminds you if you're going too far or fast. My sciatica is gone after 3 classes, and my hips feel even for the first time in years. A lot of the tension related to clenching my jaw and computer posture has really been reduced. I'm moving easier, not overcompensating, and I'm pleasantly surprised when I'm anticipating pain and it's not there!"
