For as long as I can remember, I've been drawn to helping people. From an early age, people always told me I was a 'good listener.' As a body worker, the most important thing you can do is to 'listen' on a deep level.
In 2003, I graduated from The Swedish Institute, received my massage therapy license from New York State and have never looked back!
The last almost twenty years, has been a gratifying journey. It’s really an honor to facilitate healing and relaxation and to witness transformation in my clients. Over the years, I have worked in a medical massage practice, chiropractor's office, sports rehab center, a prenatal massage therapy clinic and now solely in my private practice.
I moved across the country in 2008 and found my true home in California. I love exploring our beautiful Bay Area with my husband and sons, while focusing on my private practice on the quiet, West End of Alameda.
I'm a hospice volunteer and creating a soothing, accepting space for people to unwind, exactly as they are, is my passion.
I have additional certifications in perinatal and geriatric massage and a special love for these two modalities. (During prenatal massage, I use the Body Cushions system, which allows you to lay comfortably and safely on your belly, even during late pregnancy.)
I look forward to continuing to do this healing work, serving my community and remain open to the next steps of growth, collaboration and connection.
Thank you for trusting me with your precious self!
