I graduated from the Northwest School of Massage in 2004, and since then have been learning as much as I can about life, language, the body, and the mind.
I'm passionate about helping those around me overcome obstacles that have bothered them for years, or for moments, and I'm constantly doing the same for myself. I've found myself studying new forms of bodywork on a regular basis, learning how working with the Craniosacral system, the myofascial system, and even with specific nerves can help people's bodies function so much better. I believe that with the improvement of your body, comes many improvements in your life.
In addition to throwing myself into the study of the body, I am constantly devoting myself to learning about the development of the heart and mind. I've studied and trained in Nonviolent Communication, Neurolinguistic Programming, and Somatic Experiencing, and have immersed myself in a wide scope of other personal growth and communication modalities, ranging from the Work of Byron Katie to Daniel Coyle's Talent Code. This field has been a passion of mine for a long, long time.
My true purpose here is to help you increase your own awareness of body and self so that in the future you may avoid injury, live more richly, and have new possibilities opened up to you that you might not have been aware of previously. That may seem ambitious, but in my experience the more open your body is to the world, the less knotted up and distracted, the more resources your mind and spirit will have to support you in being the happiest and most effective person you can be.
I look forward to meeting you, and talking about the best ways we can move you towards your life and healing goals.
