Emily D. Goodman, LPC, BC-DMT (she/her)

I have a passion for promoting therapeutic change through dance, movement, art making, mindfulness and yoga. My work is rooted in integrating the mind and body in a way that feels approachable. I engage in therapy with a sense of gentle curiosity with the intention of creating a space to help individuals make meaningful change in their lives. I work from a trauma-informed lens and am influenced by humanistic theory and positive psychology. I am also cognizant of the many intersections of identity and continue to challenge myself within this work to honor systemic oppression and help decolonize therapy.

I have eight years of experience working with adults, youth, and families. I am a fully Licensed Professional Counselor and a Board-Certified Dance/Movement Therapist. Along the way, I have helped individuals manage symptoms of anxiety and depression, process grief and trauma, repair relationships with loved ones and cope with the daily stressors of the complexity of being a human. Although I am open to working with individuals from all different backgrounds, I have specialties in: grief, trauma, severe emotional stress, attachment theory, youth, families, autism spectrum disorder, as well as collaborative and body-based approaches to therapy.

I also provide supervision for LLPCs located in Michigan, as well as for R-DMTs.

Kellyn Uhl, MS, BC-DMT, Certified Apprentice in the GYROKINESIS® Method (she/her)

To engage in therapy requires courage. The foundation of my work begins with a profound acknowledgment, understanding, and respect for this courage.

I am a nationally Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist (BC-DMT) currently practicing in Mid-Michigan. I received my Masters of Science in Dance/Movement Therapy from Sarah Lawrence College, and Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting with a Specialization in Dance from Michigan State University.

My work is rooted in deep care, enthusiasm, and curiosity. I employ a humanistic approach, and take seriously my duty to protect the dignity of each client I encounter while navigating my fourth year in inpatient psychiatry. Here, I offer individual and group therapy sessions to adolescent and adult clients experiencing mental health crises. I am passionate about bringing a creative, playful, strengths-based approach to people in acute distress — to provide vital opportunities for expression, connection, and relief during some of the most difficult and vulnerable moments in a life. I work to foster a therapeutic environment in which all forms of expression — verbal and nonverbal — are worthy of existence and exploration. Movement, dancing, drawing, playing, writing, talking...collaboration and creativity are our means for therapeutic growth.

I am dedicated to expanding our notions of what it is to dance and am interested in exploring what happens when we are invited to dance, not in studios or on stages, but in hospitals, schools, shelters, office buildings, and around the kitchen table.
