My passion is using Eastern healing methods to enhance my clients' well-being. I was introduced to shiatsu as a college student in Tokyo while training Shotokan Karate at International Christian University. I experienced first hand how shiatsu improves flexibility, speeds recovery time and enhances performance. I studied shiatsu at the Ohashi Institute in NY, where I received my certification in 1994 and then opened my practice. My interest in Asian philosophy, language and culture underlies my shiatsu practice. It enables me to fully use my skills and knowledge to help clients heal, relax, and achieve healthier, happier lives.

At each session, you will be able to set some achievable goals, acquire nutrition education in support of those goals, and furthermore, you will be able to list out the steps necessary to achieve those goals. New goals will be added at follow up sessions, and overtime, more and more health focused behaviors will be developed. Focus areas will be based on needs and goals. For some, this may be reducing the risk of disease development, disease management, achieving or maintaining a healthy weight, or improving sports or activity performance.

I specialize in intuitive eating, gut & hormones. Your relationship with food does not have to be complicated. You may be exhausted from dieting most of your life and found that the constant focus on food has affected your life. You may think about food all day & are in a place where you want to get back to living your life vs. constantly focusing on food. Maybe you have recovered physically from an Eating Disorder but feel like there is more work to be done to break fear around foods. I have helped many people that have felt hopeless overcome fear around foods, stop binge eating, and find a healthy, joyful relationship with food.
