The foundation and starting point for my work is a respect for the body’s innate capacity to heal and the processes which support it.
In a nutshell:
I combine a heart centered approach and the skill of massage therapy to care for people of all ages and states of health.
Since completion of my diploma and registering with the College of Massage Therapists of BC, my practice has evolved in response to the specific needs of my clients. Additional training in myofascial release, visceral manipulation, craniosacral therapy, as a doula, and an ashtanga yoga apprenticeship, allows a session to have the flexibility to shift in rhythm with the state of the person I am working with.
I love working as a massage therapist and look forward to caring for you soon.

You drive my curiosity and willingness to explore deeper ways of connecting to an indwelling awareness and knowing that resides in us all. Each session cultivates a discipline akin to school…listening, study, and practice, practice, and more practice. It is an honour to learn with and from you.
