My Story

Hello! I am happy you are here....  A little about me. I am able to help others heal and live well because I have learned how to do so myself. I have spent many years researching and working toward a balanced life. This includes healing and finding balance physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Due to early childhood trauma, I suffered from generalized anxiety and panic disorders throughout my childhood and teenage years, and into my twenties. When I turned 30 I suffered from severe fatigue after contracting Epstein-Barr virus. It was then that I decided to take control of my health and wellness and researched alternative therapies. I found Yoga and Acupressure therapy. My mentor and healer helped me heal and I experienced a gradual increase in my energy over the first year. I have been managing my energy ever since with these therapies, and more! Once I knew the power of this work, I decided to enroll at the Acupressure Therapy Institute, and have been a bodyworker since 2004. I then went to Yoga Teacher Training and have been teaching for 8 years. Most recently, I graduated from the IAOTRC with a Trauma Recovery Coaching certificate. I am thrilled to be able to offer my clients healing from the many aftereffects of trauma including emotional, relational, and biological effects.

I am now living a productive life and am a lifelong student! I enjoy the present moment and am very comfortable in my own skin. The anxiety I once experienced is a memory, and I am getting closer to a true balance in my life that I have envisioned. It is my passion to help others find their way back to health, wellness, and ultimately, joy. Come and learn to love the life you live!


My Approach

It is through energy work, bodywork, breathwork and yoga that I help others find relaxation, restoration and peace. Over the past 18 years, my approach has evolved into a combination of Acupressure Therapy, Reiki, Myofascial techniques, Tuina Techniques, Yoga Therapy and Wellness Coaching. You can expect a full initial consultation where I ask many questions related to your symptoms. Chinese medicine is an amazing practice where we investigate the root cause of imbalance, or dis-ease, of the body. I will address any physical tension in the body first through Shiatsu massage techniques. I then treat according to Chinese Medicine principles using to the meridians, or energy channels, in the body. The energetic layer of the body is just beneath the physical, and can heal on a deeper level. Additionally, I can assist in releasing emotions held in the tissues through accessing acupoints and moving the energy. I can also help release emotional blockages through utilizing Reiki and working with the Chakras, or the energy centers, of the body. 

I specialize in pain relief, pain management, stress, fatigue, trauma, anxiety, and more....

I am excited to meet you. Please book your session today! :-)
