Professionally, I have been fine-tuning my unique and powerfully effective offering of bodywork since 2007. Blending a practical understanding of anatomy, body mechanics, and holisitic health, with the compassionate fields of meditation/mindfulness, and creative movement, I provide a deeply soothing, satisfying, and healing session for my clients. A graduate of East West College in Portland, Oregon, known for producing high quality, respected therapists in both medical and alternative health fields.
Intuitively I will blend a variety of techniques to meet your unique needs. Myofascial Release is utilized for greater freedom in movement, and release from restrictive holding patterns. Posture is able to shift positively from this opening.
My unique approach to Deep Tissue is my greatest skill I feel – working with the body, as opposed to against it, for reduction of soreness post-massage, and huge benefit in a short period of time.
Energywork for clearing and vitality with Reiki and Chakra Balancing – nourishing body, mind, and soul. With a gift in creating a warm, beautiful, safe space for you to relax, let go, relax, transform, and heal. Supportive self-care practices from a wealth of personal experience and research are offered post-massage, if desired.
Personally, I have travelled to India twice, four months total, on meditation retreat, and has spent over 15 years of devoted practice to meditation. I bring a highly focused presence to my work. A love of conscious movement/dance informs my sensitivity, creativity, and flow throughout my sessions. My own self-care is something I set high value on, so that I can continually show up to my sessions resourced with the best Energy and Spirit. I believe in a world where everyone is supported, nourished, and enjoying a life full and fantastic, and wishes to be the best example of that I can be.

Love to laugh, and have a great laugh I am told! Has probably tried every different food regimen/diet that exists. Food is medicine is one of my favorite mantras. Love experimenting, going out of my comfort zone to expand my experience, and being an example of this courage and fulfillment. Love to meet new people in all their uniqueness, and looks forward to meet you to see how we might inspire greater joy and health in your life together!
“Believe me: It is no teaching and no instruction that I give you. On what basis should I presume to teach you? I give you news of the way of this (wo)man, but not of your own way. My path is not your path therefore I cannot teach you. The way is within us, but not in Gods, nor in teachings, nor in laws. Within us is the way, the truth, and the life.” ~Carl Jung, The Red Book, Page 231
