I believe in a holistic approach to heal the entire person. Emotional pain can translate into physical pain, and physical pain can translate into emotional pain. Treating both leads to greater success and a happier, healthier person. Trained in advanced bodywork techniques, I can effectively address physical, musculo-skeletal problems. Well-versed in Bach Flower Remedies, I can effectively address emotional issues.
Highly trained and Board Certified in massage therapy, I provide a multi-faceted approach for clients with a wide variety of needs. I am not only very intuitive, but also grounded in a sound understanding of human anatomy. My journey to therapeutic massage began in my twenties, when physicians were unable to relieve my debilitating back pain. Through Rolfing, massage, and chiropractic treatments, I was able to resume a normal lifestyle free of pain. Determined to help others live full, pain-free lives, I earned my Associate of Arts in Specialized Somatic Studies—Combined Methods of Bodywork from the International Professional School of Bodywork (IPSB) in San Diego and have been changing lives for the better ever since. I have had tremendous success using combined methods of bodywork in helping clients suffering from acute and chronic pain, whether resulting from overuse, sports injuries, surgery, or other causes.

I am also a Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner. Bach Flower Remedies are amazingly effective when one is able to identify specific emotional states. I am a good listener, an astute observer, and intuitively ask the right questions to discern the root of any emotional issue. I have been working with Bach Flower Remedies for almost twenty years and have an excellent record of helping people overcome their emotional issues—whether fears, grief, depression, or stress—no matter how long they have lived with them.
Because of my strong love of animals, I also completed my studies to become a Bach Foundation Registered Animal Practitioner. I earned this certification from the Bach Centre in England and the Natural Animal Centre in Wales, and I am one of only nine registered animal practitioners in the United States. My understanding of animal behavior and keen insight have made me very effective at helping animals and their guardians live happier, healthier lives.
For twenty years, I balanced two careers: one as an aerospace engineer and the other as a healer. In 2017, I gave up my successful career as an aerospace engineer to dedicate my life to helping animals and people full time. In addition to working with clients one-on-one, I am now lecturing and teaching the official Bach Centre classes throughout the Puget Sound region.
