I've taken huge risks and giant leaps of faith on my journey through life; from surviving brain surgery as a teenager, to receiving a scholarship at a leading dance academy in New York City where I moved to at the tender age of 21 with $600 in my pocket and no job.
I moved to California where I found my path into the wellness industry through training in Reiki Mastery and Massage Therapy. This led me to a career managing and coaching a team of over 60 massage therapists for a well known luxury spa. With over 20 years and 1000+ hours schooling in the health and wellness industry, I have extensive training in leadership, personal accountability, goal setting, discovering and developing character strengths and compassionate communication as well as a variety of massage modalities and Reiki Mastery.
As a certified catalyst coach, I will guide you in identifying and changing
negative, recurring patterns and anxieties using easy-to-learn tools. You will learn how to easily replace unwanted behaviors with healthy ones. This will allow you to gain deeper intimacy with your partner, set healthy boundaries, and engage in conflict without fear, blame or shame. I have a unique ability to unwrap the stories that block your journey, get to the heart of an issue, create safe space in which to shine a light on it and help you see what else is possible.
As an expert massage therapist with over 20 years experience working privately, in 5 star luxury spa settings as well as an instructor in massage for a variety of schools and training programs, I will customize each session to meet your bodywork needs. I specialize in working therapeutically to alleviate musculoskeletal pain, correct muscle imbalances and to induce deep relaxation.
I enjoy writing about the vagaries of daily life with an eye toward the lighter side of things and shooting my bow in the back canyons while hawks play on updrafts.
