I approach every massage as a puzzle to be solved. As we explore your life, each piece will fall into place. Curiously, that last piece is always elusive, and I love the ever-evolving dialogue of your body. It’s like a painting, where you can always find something you’d do a bit differently or an area to be improved upon. As a lover of art, I enjoy learning, creating, growing, and exploring. I approach therapeutic massage with that mindset and thoroughly enjoy the artistry of the human body.
My top areas of expertise are neck and shoulders, followed closely by hips.

I am aiming for you to live pain-free. I will bring my best to you, each and every time, seeking to improve how your body feels, providing the routine work and maintenance that will establish your baseline for a healthy, strong, restored body. Your body tells the story of your life. I simply have to listen to what it’s saying.
I firmly believe the body and mind are intimately connected. Asking compassionate questions to better understand the dynamics of my clients’ lives helps me to uncover areas where I can pour love and intention into how their unique circumstances may be contributing to how their body feels. I’ve been a mother for 25 years and I see the influence of my life experience in my work. I love to care for you.
Clients who visit me can expect to find me leaning into my sweet spots - neck, shoulders, lower back, glutes for sciatic nerves, feet, hands and face. I do a lot of stretching, and long relaxing strokes. I’ve practiced herbal work for over 20 years, so that often drives my creative approach to care, and my pharmaceutical background and knowledge of medications often give me sneak peeks into my client’s symptoms and illnesses.

“My working knowledge of anatomy and physiology helps me approach each session with empathy and understanding. By asking questions and exploring possibilities beginning with the simplest, my aim is to help clients understand how their bodies are constructed and how to help them better function. All bodies are unique, and often the solutions can be as well. By going in without assumptions about the circumstances and actively listening to what my clients are telling me, we can unravel aches and pains efficiently. Discussing the ways in which my clients use their bodies on a regular basis helps me to offer guidance on improving their daily well-being. I take a particular interest in conditions of the neck and upper back, especially those involving headaches, and also the lower legs and feet. I have several years’ experience treating college and world-class athletes.
I may be a good fit for you if you are:
Experiencing a musculoskeletal problem that rest and NSAIDs are not helping,
An athlete who is recovering from an injury or seeking to prevent injury,
Looking for specific, therapeutic work with measurable results, or
Comfortable with medium to deep pressure, deep tissue or trigger point work.
I acknowledge and celebrate the fact that all bodies are unique, all bodies are good, and all bodies deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.”
As a nursing student, I leverage my unique experience and knowledge in my therapeutic approach for my clients’ benefit. I believe both my passion for nursing and massage therapy combine to help my clients in new and creative ways.
My special skills: Swedish Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Orthopedic Cupping
Communication is very important to me. I am constantly seeking feedback from my clients to better assess and apply my skills and expertise to meet their needs. Our time together is an evolution of exploring their body and applying attention where needed. My clients are active participants in the process, and we walk together to help them feel better.
I love my work. Exploring the body and laying on hands to heal and restore is something that never ceases to amaze me. As similar as the overall makeup of our bodies may seem, they are each drastically different for a million different reasons and each person deserves the attentive care that seeks out and addresses their unique needs with purpose and precision.
I have spent a considerable amount of time learning how emotions and trauma affect the body. I can tell when someone’s nervous system is functioning in overdrive, and use that knowledge to help my clients discover ways to nudge their bodies toward moving in a more relaxed state. I cultivate a state of calm and comfort in my therapeutic approach and honor everybody with compassionate, trust-filled care. I understand that massage therapy reveals people’s vulnerabilities, stressors, anxieties, and pain. Acknowledging and honoring that experience is a critical piece of therapeutic support. You are safe with me.
If you need to talk, I’m here. If you prefer silence, I’m here. If you are grieving, I’m here. If you are resting, I’m here. This is your time and your space. I will follow and honor your lead.
My deepest love is caring for people in later life stages, especially those who may not receive a healthy, compassionate touch, and may be experiencing loneliness, depression, anxiety, and pain. Providing any sense of relief that uplifts them physically, emotionally, and spiritually is something I hold sacred.
You’re the client for me if you’re:
Battling chronic stress and need help unwinding tension
Seeking medium pressure to help your entire body find a state of rest
Working through trauma or medical crises
Looking for compassionate touch that connects on physical, emotional and spiritual levels
Navigating later seasons of life, including hospice or terminal illness
In need of a therapist who can come to you (off-site care available)
The time we spend together is all about you. I will listen to you and to your body, tailoring your experience to align with what’s going on in your world, whether spoken or unspoken. I give my all, my best, every time. You are loved and you are not alone.
