My greatest joy in massage has been connecting with my clients. It is tremendously rewarding to help others find relief from the physical ailments and mental and emotional stress that weigh on us all throughout the days. Massage is a fascinating and valuable component of wellness; human touch is a powerful tool for both revealing and relieving physical and emotional conflicts within the body.
I am a nationally certified, licensed massage therapist with over 10 years in practice. I’ve been trained in a range of modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, working with specific ailments and injuries, and physical and mental trauma, stress, and anxiety. In 2016, I received a 54-hour psychotherapeutic Trauma Training certificate and I completed my Master of Social Work in 2019. I am continuing my studies in mind-body treatments and the profound benefits of safe therapeutic touch and bodywork on trauma recovery, as well as psychological conditions related to stress, depression, and anxiety.
I deeply believe that benefits of massage therapy go beyond the physical work itself, and are bolstered by the entirety of the experience - from taking time away from busy life to allow yourself to relax and unwind, and connecting with a practitioner, feeling your needs are heard and tended to in a serene and safe space.
My massages are catered to each client’s needs, be it a specific area of discomfort needing focused work, or a full body session aimed at overall tension and stress relief. In an appointment with me, you can expect a safe place to communicate, an empathizing listener, and then a comprehensive massage treatment, incorporating all my training into one complete, relaxing, and effective therapeutic session.
It’s extremely gratifying to end a session and see the positive change that has occurred, and for each person to walk out of a massage session as if a tremendous weight has been lifted, feeling more relaxed, stress-free, and healthy. I look forward to being a part of your wellness journey, and working with you to achieve these same results!
