Background: I have been a practicing Massage Therapist for over 16 years. I am a graduate and was a faculty member at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy/Cortiva Institute - Chicago. I have lectured on kinesiology, Earthing-Grounding, hypnosis, breathwork, and therapeutic/clincal bodywork at various conferences around the country. Additionally I have worked with the University of Wisconsin and Northwestern University Athletic Departments, as well as the Sports Medicine Department of the Aspen Club & Spa in Aspen, CO. I have trained with Trent Nelson in Conscious Connected Breathing and most recently trained with James Waslaski in Orthopedic Massage Therapy. I have worked with and coached amateur, professional, and Olympic athletes in all of the various modalities to enhance the potential of their performance and their energy.
Philosophy: I consider myself a "Wholistic Body Coach". I can help facilitate change on the physical, emotional, mental and energetic level. However, it requires a partnership between myself and the client. I can only do so much, however, when combined with the "will" to change by the client, amazing healing can happen. My hope is that you will leave a treatment with me feeling aligned, relaxed, energetically charged, focused, and inspired about your own healing and your own life.
