I teach others the techniques that have saved me from a lifetime of chronic pain and stress. That is why I am so potently passionate about my work. The human body is a complicated system of synergistic sub-systems. It is mind-blowingly complex and unfortunately, it doesn’t come with an owner’s manual. I didn’t get much self-care education in school, but experience has taught me that making an effort to learn about these beautifully designed vessels, and taking the time to embody that knowledge, can be significantly helpful to anyone hoping for more easeful operation. Consequently, I have become a bit of a seeker, looking into all things helpful and healing for humans who want to live better in their bodies. I’ve developed quite a tool-kit over the years, and I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned with you!
After years of studying modalities, strategies, tools, and techniques I’ve got as almost as many acronyms after my name as I have accumulated diagnoses, and each little notch on my belt has helped me to overcome something that’s threatened to diminish my capacity to actually enjoy living my life.
Getting my B.A. in Education taught me a lot about learning efficiently, about managing my own A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder), and about being an effective teacher. Becoming an E.-R.Y.T. (Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher) helped me significantly with the symptoms of my P.T.S.D. (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). My YTU (Yoga Tune Up®) education has given me a life-changing skill-set for operating around my own D.D. (Dissociative Disorder). After an accident, and the resultant emergency and follow-up surgeries, the principles I learned while certifying as a CEx (Corrective Exercise Specialist) were utterly indispensable. The protocol for adaptive strengthening that I learned while certifying as a CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) with The N.A.S.M. (National Academy of Sports Medicine) has been invaluable as I’m learning to deal with my EDS-HT (Ehlers Danlos Syndrome – Hypermobility Type).

Studying WFPBN (Whole Foods Plant Based Nutrition) helps me to stay ahead in my decade-plus battle with an eating disorder. Studying as an RYC (Restore Your Core®) practitioner has helped me to heal my own core dysfunction and the DR (Diastasis Recti) I developed after having my wonderful daughter. Certifying as a RMM (Roll Model Method®) Practitioner has helped me to manage the pain and limitations associated with my scoliosis, osteoarthritis, and D.D.D. (Degenerative Disc Disease). Apprenticing as a Shamanic Practitioner has given me tools and skills to navigate the dynamic waters of my anxiety, as well as a deep respect for the healing potential of time spent in community.
Completing close to 700 hours of training, passing the MBLEx (Massage Board Licensing Exam), and becoming a state certified L.M.T. (Licensed Massage Therapist) gave me the confidence I needed to take my smarts and my skills out into the world and begin to help others who face similar threats to their own capacity for the enjoyment of life-living.
I have offered my movement and massage therapy services to breast cancer survivors through The Healing Consciousness Foundation since 2014. Currently, I also offer individual work and small-group sessions at my office in New Britain, Pa. I am NCBMT and YA approved to offer Self-Care Trainings to other movement and massage professionals as well. I continue to study internationally in a wide array of healing modalities and I am dedicated to finding affordable and effective ways to share the skills I learn.
