I spent most of my childhood in Steamboat Springs, Colo. There, I gained a true love and respect for the natural world by hiking, snowboarding, and playing in the Yampa river. In 2010, I moved to the Denver area and enrolled at Colorado School of Healing Arts. I received my massage therapy certification and licensure in September 2011. Directly after that, I completed the Associate of Occupational Studies program in June of 2012. My AOS degree includes advanced training in neuromuscular therapy and oncology/medical massage.
Providing therapeutic massage gives me a genuine sense of joy. It is wonderful to witness the anatomical, physiological, mental, and emotional responses and shifts the human body can go through from touch alone. I believe that body awareness and patient knowledge can set a foundation to allow the body to heal from within. I typically use a combination of techniques to cater a patient’s unique issues, body, and state of being. A session with me may include Swedish massage, gentle deep tissue, gentle neuromuscular therapy (trigger point therapy), medical and oncology massage, or healing touch.
Outside of work, most of my time is spent with family and friends, walking my dogs, going to the movies, enjoying good food and drinks, and playing in nature.
