My path to bodywork was a long one. In 2016, chronic illness led me to leave my career as a special education teacher. On my journey to heal, only a few practitioners treated me without judgment. That experience motivated me to pursue bodywork so I can help others find solutions to improve their quality of life without questioning the validity of their symptoms.
I graduated from Oregon School of Massage in the Fall of 2019 with a focus in myofascial release, TMJ disorder treatment, and craniosacral therapy. I provide these modalities as stand-alone sessions or in combination with more traditional massage to create integrative massage sessions that are unique to your needs.
My own experience with using bodywork to heal my pain as both an athlete and a person with a chronic illness has informed my work. I believe that bodywork does not need deep pressure to elicit big changes. I ease into my work to ensure that I use the best therapeutic pressure for your body.
I take pride in providing bodywork that meets the needs of my client—you are the expert on your body—I am just a conduit for your healing. Our first session together includes a 15-minute planning session where we will work together to decide what modalities will best support your needs.
I look forward to providing a bodywork session that supports you in your healing goals.

Offering two forms of myofascial bodywork: direct and indirect. Both work to release restrictions in the muscular and fascial systems but approach it in two ways.
