I have a passion for cultivating wellness through inclusive, trauma-informed bodywork. As a Certified Aquatic Integration Provider and Craniosacral Therapist, I view balance in the body as dynamic and adaptive, rather than static or fixed. I focus on attuning to the natural rhythms in your system and hold space for your body to release restrictions it has been unable to overcome on its own.

Creating Be Abundant Bodywork has been a dream in the making for over a decade. I first began studying this work in 2008, after experiencing the healing effects for myself as a complex trauma survivor. I often describe my internal process as a provider as standing in curiosity, to truly listen to your unique experience, in order to offer informed invitations for change, rather than deciding how changes should be made for you.

As a lifelong athlete with a history in ballet, dance team, and roller derby, the journey towards healing my relationship with my body has been long and continues to this day. A supportive team of HAES professionals in mental health therapy, art therapy, movement therapy, craniosacral therapy, aquatic integration, and massage therapy have greatly impacted my recovery journey and changed my life.

I am honored to be able to do this profound work and invite you to come and experience new pathways of wellness through deep relaxation, fluid movement, and sensory integration. I look forward to holding space with you soon.

Aquatic
Integration
 

A warm water, holistic therapy that encourages sensory integration through touch, communication, stillness, and movement. Aquatic Integration is a trauma informed approach to aquatic bodywork and offers positive effects for sensory neurological repatterning, trauma healing, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, cerebral palsy, injury recovery, rehabilitation, anxiety, stress, and much more.

 

Sessions include a walk and talk in the water, the smooth transition into the horizontal position, use of soft floats to relax into the support of the water, fluid exploration of your unique ranges of motion and movement in the moment, and a soothing transition back into the upright posture for the self integration process.

Craniosacral Therapy 

Our trauma informed approach to craniosacral therapy offers the potential to create dynamic improvements in a noninvasive way. By holding space to release soft tissue strain patterns running deep within the body, pain and dysfunction are relieved to improve whole-body health and performance.

Appointments include time to check in about how you are in the moment and identify your own unique goals for being abundantly well. Each session is fully clothed and lying either face up or on one side.

Pricing
