It is my life's work to extend peace. To this end, all my sessions are focused on accessing presence, awareness, and individual integrity. 

My bodywork is slow and progressive: depth builds session over session as your body comes to trust my touch, and I come to know your body. To honor the body’s process, I focus on precision rather than force to provide touch that feels like healing. I prefer providing longer sessions - two hours is ideal. I find more time encourages more complete engagement with the mind-body connection.

I offer donation based sessions for those who cannot afford bodywork.
