My vision is to offer my unique palette of skills and services, to help you enrich your life from the inside out.
My studies have granted me a Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of California, Long Beach, which birthed a long career as a copyediter and writer.
A Masters degree in Clinical Psychology led me to work therapeutically with developmentally disabled and homeless populations before I chose to shift to practicing bodywork–which I perceive to be the ultimate integration of mind, body, soul healing and presence.
I trained as a massage therapist at the Santa Barbara Body Therapy Institute specializing in deep Swedish Massage, with an additional focus on neurolymphatic, Chi Nei Tsang (CNT), and cranio sacral modalities. I continued private studies in Lomi Lomi massage, Reiki, and aromatherapy.
My deep spiritual practice in indigenouse and shamanic ceremony has deepened my medicine as a healer, which I look forward to sharing with you.
