Master of Social Work
My purpose is to teach safe touch and connection. I work with parents, infants, toddlers, preschoolers and teachers, supporting the value of simple presence to augment gentle and playful touch. These are the elements of connection. Working with adults who have lost touch with their connectedness to others and themselves, I know that providing listening touch and reflective dialogue can help them reconnect with themselves and others.

I find joy when I live from my heart and soul. I find my peace in the natural world. I am nourished by walking quietly on the Earth absorbing the sights and sounds of all Spirit beings. I love teaching people in my private practice of Rubenfeld Synergy and in my nonprofit, Horses As Mentors, Inc. You may check out: horsesasmentors.org.

Certified Rubenfeld Synergist
"Touch that evokes trust and safety can create dialogues with the client's unconscious mind. In early infancy, the baby receives and understands the nonverbal language of touch long before it understands words. With an adult, the combination of touch and words represents the highest form of communication." Ilana Rubenfeld

Company: Mike Schlesinger, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist
Working in State Hospitals as well as in private practice has given me the opportunity to deal intensively with a variety of life issues and has polished my clinical skills. I have seen how emotional traumas affects the bodies of clients, especially in terms of distortions of posture, restrictions of movement, and the development of chronic illnesses and somatic complaints.
Training in the Rubenfeld Synergy Method has taught me how to really listen and to be more present. I am very aware of my clients’ breathing, posture, facial expressions, use of language, tone of voice, mental imagery, energy, contactfullness, and curiosity. Even clients who have been severely physically, emotionally, and sexually abused have shown an amazing healing response to this respectful, non-invasive blend of touch and talk.
