For the past 26 years, I have been working as an integrated holistic health practitioner weaving together my interest in the body, psychology, and spirituality. I am a graduate of the Chicago School of Massage Therapy, Loyola University Institute of Pastoral Counseling, and the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. My passion is to explore the ongoing conversation between these three modalities, body, mind and Spirit, in order to help my clients access their own innate blueprint for self-healing and wholeness. I have trained and draw upon a variety of bodywork modalities in my massage practice and utilizes a client-centered therapy approach inspired by the work of Winnicott, Jung, Buddhism, and Christianity in my counseling practice.
I am currently in my 16th year of a mindful-meditation training program, Awakening Into Presence, an intensive study of the wisdom teachings of the East and the West. I am a certified meditation teacher through Susan Piver teacher training program.
For a complete bio including my educational background and approach to massage therapy, simply give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you.
“There is no tissue in the body that is as ubiquitous as connective tissue, and as it migrates and develops in various forms in various locations, its “connective” qualities cannot be overstated. It binds specific cells into tissue, tissue into organs, organs into systems, cements muscles to bones, ties bones into joints, wraps every nerve and every vessel, laces all internal structures firmly into place, and envelops the body as a whole. In all of these linings, wrappings, cables, and moorings it is a continuous substance, and every single part of the body is connected to every other part by virtue of its network; every part of us is in its embrace."
