Welcome to a new era.
Who am I and what is my intention?
I am not so unlike you. I was in pain, and not finding the right support or answers, I felt very alone. I was a mixture of intense dissatisfaction and strong determination. My path towards healing and finding the answers began around the age of twelve. I stand here now, with a desire to facilitate these messages to you. There is a world of possibility out there when we open the door and remain willing.
Throughout this three-decade healing journey, I have studied, practiced, and become certified in the following modalities that I currently offer to the public:
Rolf Method Structural Integration
Visceral and Craniosacral Therapy
RolfYoga and Yoga Therapy
Canine Trauma & Structural Therapy
Canine Greif Support
Of my twenty-some-year career in the healing arts, nine of those recent years I operated my own clinic in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This fall, I will be offering sessions at Harmonic Egg in the Strip District.
I bring an offering of healing, hope, humanity, humor, and honesty. If I feel your care requires more eyes and talent, I will refer you.
I am currently offering one-to-one services to the public at large and Zoom support for non-in person services. Masks are optional for in person.
