Ursula's commitment to the healing arts began after an injury in 1976. Seeking complementary alternatives led her to Yoga as a means of self-care. Intensive Yoga practice interwoven with her Art and Dance studies brought about a multi-dimensional realization of the connection between body/mind/spirit. Inspired by the positive results of CranioSacral Therapy she received in 1996, Ursula went on to massage school followed by extensive advanced training in CranioSacral Therapy to develop the skills to offer those benefits to others.
Between 2005-2009 Ursula completed training with Dr. Poldi Orlando, founder and director of the Synthesis Institute of Miami. This work focuses on Depth Psychology and Integral Studies through Psychosynthesis, Gestalt Therapy, Therapeutic Imagery and Dialogue, and the Fusion of Creative Techniques. The Synthesis Method also includes Organic Movement, Art and various Meditation Practices. This combination utilizes Ursula's background in Art and Movement while simultaneously complementing CranioSacral and Somato Emotional Release Therapy. These studies and practices led Ursula to Naropa University where she received an MA Somatic Counseling Psychology in 2015.
Ursula blends these teachings into her CranioSacral, Somato Emotional Release Therapy, and Bodywork (Lymph Drainage Therapy and Visceral Manipulation) practice. She has developed Integrative Movement and Multi-Dimensional Creativity sessions and workshops for self-discovery and personal development. These sessions and workshops include: Art, Movement, Therapeutic Imagery and Dialogue, Gestalt Therapy, Creative Visualization, Meditation, Relaxation and Affirmation Practices, and Psychosynthesis. Ursula works with people of all age groups, diversified backgrounds, physical/emotional challenges, including those who simply want to maintain well being. For those unable to come to her office, Ursula does make home calls.
