I trust the body's innate wisdom and capacity to heal and transform. This is the foundation that shapes my work with both massage therapy and intimacy bodywork coaching.
I've felt called to bring healing into the world throughout my life and have done so in diverse ways. In my early years I delved into emotional and spiritual healing, eventually leading me to focus on the physical and energetic bodies. I trained at the Bellevue Massage School, earning licensure in 2011. Prior trainings in Reiki, Chi Gong and Feldenkrais Movement supplemented my traditional massage skills, offering vastly different ways of relating to the body.
I began to understand that when I touch, there is a dialogue taking place between my hands and the body I am working with; it is a communication. Having worked for over a decade in the field of conflict resolution as a mediator, I learned that communication is the key to healing and change. Effective communication takes place when deep listening, presence, patience, respect and care are given. This creates a transformative space in which healing can take place. It is my honor and delight to create this space for you!
I am a licensed massage therapist, a somatic sex and relationship coach certified in Skydancing Tantra and trained in the Somatica® Method. I bring a diverse background in communication and embodiment modalities to my work.
