Over 16 years of practice as a registered massage therapist has taught me that our bodies hold more of the answers to our healing than we may think.  If we take the time to listen to the body as a whole, it will often show us exactly what it needs.

My treatment style has become a well integrated blend of myofascial and craniosacral assessments and techniques that often include some form of visualization, breathing or body awareness exercise. Becoming aware of and attuned to our bodies is an important step to opening communication with the tissues and providing the opportunity for growth and change.

I am passionate about helping people achieve and even exceed their personal health goals. Whether that's through working with me alone or by collaborating with complementary professionals in the community. Expect homework - your results will reflect your commitment to self care. My goal is to provide you with the tools you need to help maintain a healthy and pain free state of being. That means something different for everyone as our bodies, patterns and life experiences are all different. Each person needs a plan that is unique for their body.

My practice includes men and women of all ages, but I have a special interest in working with infants and mothers surrounding pregnancy.  After many years unraveling lifelong compounded tensions and traumas in adults, I am inspired to help babies get the best start to life possible.  

I spent 12 rewarding years owning and operating a busy downtown wellness centre while providing mentorship to newer therapists. After having 2 children, I have recently chosen a slower life pace that allows for walks to work along the river and more time with my young family. Come visit me at my new office at the Rideau Sports Centre!
