A BIT ABOUT MY WORK
I am an educator and practitioner of bodywork and movement-based therapies.
My own journey of Self-Healing has been the foundation for the work that I do. I have experienced dozens of modalities within the vast fields of integrative human health and well-being. Those that have been instrumental to my growth have become part of my practice. I have found the most effective and longest lasting methods of self-healing to be ones that address the body from an integrative perspective - placing awareness on working with the physical body, the energetic, subtler body, as well as the incorporated emotional components of the stories held within.
I have benefitted from a variety of Western and Eastern techniques - both ancient and modern - and the work I now do is a synthesis of these. I have chosen to study and become certified in the modalities that have had the greatest influence on my own life. Among these, various forms of Osteopathic Manual Therapy, Relational Group Process and The Movement Arts have all become a part of the work I now share as a practitioner and educator.
I am a licensed healthcare provider in the United States and I have studied alongside hundreds of physiotherapists, medical doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors, integrative massage therapists, researchers of human and equine anatomy and renowned movement instructors.
Here are some of the modalities I have studied and now incorporate into my work:

My work involves a blending of many of the techniques I have learned through my training, yet it is ultimately guided by a unique touch of my own presence and modalities that I am currently developing and have begun teaching. Whether I am working one-on-one, with partners, families or teaching a group, the work that flows through me is greatly influenced by the wonderful people I have had the privilege of studying alongside. That being said, the ultimate teachers are my clients and observing their processes of healing and personal growth through this work is what continually influences my approach more than anything.
It is a true honor to share work that has the power to directly improve the quality of people's lives in a powerful, yet gentle way.
