Craniosacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life and wellness. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
SomatoEmotional Release is a therapeutic process that expands on the principles of Craniosacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma.
Dr Rob and I are still federally mandated to require masks in our office at this time. We ask that you arrive no more than 3 minutes prior to your appointment and bring your own water bottle.
While I am credentialed with several insurance companies I am unable to verify benefits at this time. Please confirm your benefits for your plan and any necessary referral you may need. Feel free to contact me for further information.
I am a licensed massage therapist with over 15 years of experience. I am trained in Upledger Craniosacral and Somato-emotional release techniques and Barral Visceral Manipulation. I enjoy working on the somatic connections between mind and body, helping each to reduce stress and find balance. Over the last ten years of practice, I have focused on learning techniques to reduce trauma symptoms and calm the nervous system.
When I am not in the massage room, I can be found throwing pottery, knitting, hiking, and reading. I love to learn. In 2022 I completed my BA in social science and psychology. In August, I will enter a graduate program to focus on counseling psychology with an emphasis on social justice, somatic psychology, and adventure therapy.
My touch style
I come from the school of thought that deeper pressure can create defensiveness within the body, putting it on guard and blocking unwinding. I do not do deep tissue massage for this reason. I have extensive training and experience in gentle, subtle, and effective techniques, helping the nervous system when in fight/flight. I also focus on globally balancing the body-mind interface for more profound results.
Personal healing philosophy.
It has been my experience, and through that, my philosophy that each body has innate healing wisdom that far exceeds any outside agenda. To honor that inner wisdom, I hold a space that allows you to connect with your body to feel and hear the unique and beneficial message it contains. Through this connection, I encourage clients to cultivate inner awareness and self-compassion and help facilitate calming the central nervous system to reconnect to their strengths and resilience.
What I love about craniosacral and somato-emotional release techniques
Helping people navigate the natural process of releasing stressful experiences while reconnecting to their body’s innate resilience.
Seeing people find relief, peace, and ease in their bodies
Helping clients feel supported on their journey.
self-realization and personal growth
Personal influences in my practice
Operating a private practice for the last ten years.
Collaborative care with other practitioners
Holding space with compassion and sensitivity to facilitate the healing work of others is humbling.
Letting go of how things "should" heal and being open to how the body would like to heal is also humbling.
Raising a strong daughter.
My experience with chronic pain and the personal growth, self-care, and transformation I have experienced through somatic and cranial work.
