Hi, I'm L'!
I am not so unlike you.
I spent years in physical 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 toward healing and finding the answers began around the age of twelve. I stand here now, with a desire to facilitate these messages to you through hands-on work and movement, and dialog. 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 of Structural Integration
Visceral and Craniosacral Therapy
Canine Trauma & Structural Therapy
Canine de-Stressing Techniques
During my twenty-year career in the healing arts, nine of those recent years I operated my own clinic in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In the more recent months, I've been in Kanab, Utah, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I bring an offering of healing, hope, humanity, humor, and honesty.
I am currently offering one-to-one services to the public.
Masks are optional, I will be wearing one during out work.
