I graduated from the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences and have been a New York State Licensed Massage Therapist since 2004. I have worked primarily in physical therapy and clinical massage settings, focusing on Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue and Sports Massage.
I have extensive Myofascial training with Carrie Taylor, instructor at the Swedish Institute and NCTMB Nationally Certified Instructor, in the Taylor Technique of Myofascial Release. While training with Carrie, I simultaneously worked with her clients in a supervised clinical environment. My advanced myofascial training includes working with Whiplash, Cervical Disc Hernations, Migraines, TMJ Disorder, Carpal Tunnel and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Lumbar Disc Herniations and Sciatica. I also have experience in treating scar tissue from injuries and surgeries. I am also certified in Prenatal Massage, having studied with Susanrachel Condon.
I practice meditation and yoga. I completed a two year program at Psychic Horizons, a school for meditation and healing. At Psychic Horizons I learned the tools to develop my energetic connection to myself and others. My intuitive skills help me listen to the body to unlock physical tension and blocked energy. I deepened my energetic healing abilities by studying Reiki, and becoming a Reiki Master. I now combine my massage and energetic work in my private practice.
A former professional actor and singer, I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama from the University of California at Irvine and have been a member of Actors’ Equity, the Union for Professional Actors and Stage Managers, since 1992. When I’m not seeing clients, I love to bike, sing, dance, play with my cat, write and improvise.
