About me.

I’ve explored many modalities for healing my body, mind, heart, and spirit, and I’ve experienced some remarkable chapters in my healing journey.

I believe we all have an inner healer that we can befriend and support with awareness. That part of me was motivated to find out how relaxed I could get — after trauma recovery — without using substances, and I began to explore meditation, breathwork, bodywork, and energy work in addition to my long-time yoga practice.

Receiving regular craniosacral therapy and acupuncture helped support my well-being tremendously.

My experience receiving bodywork and energy work led me to consider a career change, beginning with training in Reiki (level 3). A few weeks after my training ended, I used it on a gifted healer/friend who had injured his foot and was in severe pain.

He recovered more quickly than expected and told me, “You need to get a license to touch people.”

My professional journey

I attended Lauterstein-Conway Massage School’s 500-hour program and later completed the 250-hour advanced program. My training in craniosacral therapy started while I was still a student there, and I began my training in intraoral work (instrumental in developing my TMJ Relief protocols) not long after graduating.

I’ve offered bodywork in a variety of settings: hospitals, retreats, spas, offices, homes, festivals, sporting events, and hospice.

Now I offer sessions in my West Lake office and at West Holistic Medicine in downtown Austin.

I often volunteer at the Community Healing Circle, offering mini-sessions in Biodynamics in exchange for modest donations every month on the first Saturday at Flow Yoga Westgate, 5:30-8:30.

I also offer sessions in Taos, NM, in summers.

You found me, and I’m interested in you. How may I be of service?

If you’d like to connect verbally, I offer free 15-minute phone consultations that you can schedule online, and I will call you at the time you choose, to listen and answer your questions so that you may proceed wisely.
