I began my relationship with bodywork in 1997 through my own healing process, finding myself struggling with profound and constant physical pain and a deep separation of Self. I knew once I was better, I wanted to learn some of the practices that were so instrumental in helping me regain a more balanced place in my body, mind, and spirit. I am forever grateful to those people and practitioners who held space for me along the way.
Having healed Fibromyalgia and an extreme case of Myofascial Pain Sydrome (MPS), I am happy to say that in 2006, I completed a 1,000 hour program in Polarity and Massage, a graduate of the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts (NMAHA) in Santa Fe, NM. I also have taken more than 350 classroom hours of Craniosacral Therapy continuing education with Craniosacral Master Etienne Peirsman. Since 2006, I have been supporting others work with some of the challenges this busy and sometimes complicated world can bring. I feel extremely privileged to be able to engage with people in their own healing processes. Because I have been through some deep terrain myself, often clients feel a profound sense of being "gotten" in the work we do together.
I have had a meditation practice for more than a decade. I also work deeply in my own processes with art, contemplation, neuroplasticity, and Self inquiry, continuing to expand my relationship to consciousness and soul. As a result, I will bring a deep and expansive heart connection to our time together and look forward to being in that space with you.
Besides bodywork, I grew up in Massachusetts and graduated with a degree from Colgate University, magna cum laude, with a focus on Political Science. For the last 20 years, I have been an active participant in movements for social justice, working primarily on environmental and human rights issues. I have spent many years working with organizations such as Greenpeace, The Ruckus Society, Students for a Free Tibet, and Chainbreaker. I have facilitated workshops, fundraised, and participated in direct actions that utilize my love of art, my belief in the power of strategic nonviolence, and my deep sensitivity to our common desire for happiness and security as forces for positive change. In addition to bodywork, I am currently a curriculum developer, program evaluator, and strategic nonviolence consultant for Tibet Action Institute. I am also an avid sports fan and animal lover and have taken in many stray or feral dogs and cats!
