I am a trauma-based bodyworker with over 20 years of foundational experience as a Registered Massage Therapist, and over 15 years’ experience in Energy Healing. The focus of my practice has shifted over the years, and I now specialize in working with clients who have Developmental Trauma (In Utero & Birth), PTSD/Trauma, Anxiety/Depression, Physiological & Psychological Syndromes, Energy Blockages, Stress Disorders, and various Pain & Physical Issues.

My sessions integrate modalities that are focused on Nervous System Regulation & Reorganization, Discharging Traumatic Stress, Releasing Muscle and Fascial Tension/Bracing, Restoring Primitive Reflexes, Clearing Energy Blockages, and Restoring The Auric Field. I primarily work with ages 12 and up.

I typically integrate any of the following modalities, which are dependent upon client goals and presenting symptoms: CranioSacral Therapy & SomatoEmotional Release, Somatic Experiencing®, Reiki & Shamanic Healing, and Transforming Touch® (Developmental Trauma & Primitive Reflex protocols). Please note the focus of my practice is with integrated sessions, and I no longer do traditional Swedish massage.

I also have experience with Pre & Post Psychedelic and Plant Medicine participants, of which bodywork can greatly enhance integration. I have other holistic interventions in my tool belt of Energy and Body healing, which I typically include when indicated.

I believe the body knows how to heal … sometimes it just needs help activating the healing potential. This can come by satisfying our early developmental and attachment needs through secure presence and safe touch.

Please know this takes time .. I do not offer quick fixes. The body and nervous system take time to shift. Change is typically noticed after 4 sessions on a weekly basis. What I do is help facilitate the system towards balance, bit by bit.

Questions/Intentions that can drive the focus and energy of the work:

What do you want to see happen and/or experience?
What would you want to be different at the end of each session?
What is important for you?
All sessions seek to bring more regulation into the nervous system, and gently unearth and shift patterns of stress, pain, blocked survival life force energy. This is done mindfully, compassionately and within a client’s own pace and rhythm.
I believe in a holistic approach to healing and wellness. Therefore my work represents an integration of mind-body-spirit. Please see my credentials below. It would be an honour to work with you.
