Practicing with gratefulness and delight since 1988, I meet each person with respect, curiosity and appreciation. I bring a depth of presence and a wide range of skills to each session which I tailor to the individual's needs and goals. Whether we focus on relaxation, injury treatment, stress reduction, increasing awareness, maintenance, personal exploration or inquiry into body symptoms, or a combination of any of the above, I aim for the individual to leave the session feeling in some way better than when they arrived.

After extensive research and dissection of the human body during my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from the University of Colorado, I went on to massage school in Washington. My understanding of the the body and especially soft tissue led to my specialty in injury treatment and sports massage which entails deep tissue work, myofascial therapy as well as relaxation techniques to help your mind and your body get to a more efficiently functioning state.
