I graduated from the 3000 hr Massage Therapy program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2009 and returned to WCCMT Victoria as a clinic supervisor from 2012-15.

Since then, I have been in private practice working with clients to find the right techniques and methods to increase bodily awareness, mindfulness and resilience. 

I have a special interest working with the physical symptoms & manifestations that can arise from such conditions as: 

– Anxiety & Depression

– Chronic/Mysterious Illness and Pain​

– Overwhelm and Stress

– Physical, Emotional or Medical Trauma

The trainings and experience I bring to my practice cover various interwoven focus areas, including trauma recovery, somatic touch, self-regulation skills, and resilience. These focus areas ultimately weave together into a unified somatic approach to touch, awareness, and relationship.
