In 2023 I will celebrate my 20th year practicing massage therapy. I began in Phoenix, at the Arizona School of Massage Therapy in 2003, at the age of 24. The school was very much oriented towards technical work, with a strong emphasis on structural bodywork. It also taught a wide variety of modalities, and I was lucky to be exposed to shiatsu, craniosacral therapy, reflexology and neuromuscular therapy, in addition to the standard swedish massage and deep tissue programs. From this very beginning, I was drawn to the specific, targeted work that has formed the backbone of my practice to this day.

I spent three years after massage school working in day spas. It was a good start, but I was frustrated by the way we had to limit our practice to a menu of services. If I found a tight spot or some area that needed some extra attention, I wanted to be able to address it to the best of my abilities without having to ignore it or upcharge because my client had not paid for that service. I have always felt that I had to bring the best of my abilities to bear in every session I did, and spas were not conducive to that principle, so in 2007 I started my own practice and have been in private practice ever since.

Since then, I have worked with hundreds, if not thousands of people on a wide variety of ailments. Some results have been spectacular. Others have been frustrating. But I have continued to bring the best that I am capable of to every session. I have expanded my skills to be able to offer myofascial release, and have taken trainings on Body Mind Centering and Freedom Bodywork. I continue to develop my knowledge and skills to be able to offer higher and higher quality work.

In addition to bodywork, I am a student of Capoeira with Sina de Capoeira North Carolina. I grow herbs and vegetables in my garden, and read science fiction and philosophy. I have two lovely children and two rambunctious little dogs. I look forward to meeting you in my practice!
