My journey as a body and energy worker began back in 2014 when I was certified in Reiki energy work, and soon after in 2015 when I felt moved to complete my Reiki Master Teacher training. My heart-centered approach and intuitive touch steered me in the direction of massage therapy school in 2016. That hunch happened to be spot on and I found that my passion for working with people only grew and was enhanced throughout my time learning massage therapy at East West College of Healing Arts. While there I not only learned modalities of Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Prenatal massage, but I also studied and am influenced by Thai massage and Tui Na (Chinese massage). Over time I have enjoyed working with many clients to provide a safe space, and help facilitate powerful change including: body awareness, increased mobility, relaxation and rejuvenation. I truly feel it is important to listen to my clients and meet each person where they are at--education, empowerment, consent and communication are the keystones of my work. I strive to develop a treatment plan with each client that is effective and collaborative.
My own personal journey of grief, loss, trauma, mental and physical well-being and finding my life purpose have developed in me a vast well of wisdom, compassion and seasoned optimism that I feel is powerful for me, and even more powerful when shared with others in my life coaching and Reiki sessions. When I started my transformational journey in 2011 I thought I knew what lie ahead for me but, as I'm sure you have also experienced, I had NO idea of the lessons in courage, self-care and perseverance the universe would require of me. I have had to shed old things that no longer served me and nurture new ways of being. This was sometimes lonely work and I know how much of a difference it can make to have someone on your team. I still have my rough days, like everyone, but I also practice what I preach and will be ready to hold you accountable because I will listen to you, hope for you and guide you forward to achieve the life you dream of.
When I'm not in the clinic I enjoy hiking, camping/backpacking, reading way too much non-fiction, time with friends and family or singing with my ukulele.
I am an LGBTQIAPK ally and welcome all body types!
I look forward to working with you,
