I am a “unicorn” in that I am both an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant and a Diplomate Certified CranioSacral Therapist. I was the first person world-wide to hold both designations.

Please visit each section of my website to learn more about each specialty or read both if you wish.

My focus is to help individuals and families reach the goals they have for themselves. CranioSacral therapy teaches us that the client is the one who leads.

As a lactation consultant this means that it is your breastfeeding goal is what drives how and what we do together.

As a craniosacral therapist, here too, it is the client that leads. CranioSacral therapy believes that the individual knows what healing it needs as well as how to achieve it.

Please reach out to speak with me about lactation or craniosacral therapy or how the two are combined.

What people say about CranioSacral Therapy

1-2 days a week I work with Dr Ben Dancygier and Hudson Valley Tongue Tie Clinic providing CranioSacral Therapy and Lactation support to the families that come to us.  The following is from one of the families that we saw – 
“What a great experience I had taking my son to see Dr Ben and his wonderful team! First off, the office is clean, fully updated and beautiful. Private rooms to make you feel comfortable and nurse pre/post procedure for as long as you want/need. His staff are very welcoming and friendly, answering any questions I had in regards to billing or scheduling. Dr Ben was very kind, knowledgeable, empathetic and thorough with his evaluation. He gave me the pros and cons of doing the procedure, was unable to make any definite promises but used his best clinical judgement to make a recommendation. He took the time to explain the procedure step by step which made me feel a lot more comfortable as it’s hard making the choice to do this procedure on your infant. Patricia, the IBCLC and craniosacral therapist, also worked with us before and after the procedure to insure my son’s comfort and assist with craniosacral techniques to release tension. Dr Ben and Patricia also emphasized the importance of post-procedure exercises to maintain the benefits of having the release performed.

Dr Ben also has a 1 week follow up to assess for proper healing and ensure the procedure went well, which not a lot of facilities do but it’s so important for success! Overall, I highly recommend the team approach at HVTT and would not hesitate to return in the future if needed!”
