CranioSacral therapy and SomatoEmotional release work have been my primary professional focus since 1999. I have studied many healing modalities over the past 32 years but CranioSacral therapy has offered the most profound and effective healing I have ever encountered.
Currently, I have a private practice in Menlo Park, CA, working with infants, children and adults of all ages on a broad range of issues including acute and chronic pain of any kind, chronic stress, migraine, TMJ dysfunction, post traumatic stress disorder, autoimmune disorders, anxiety and depression, learning disabilities, autism and asperger syndromes, birth trauma, recovery from surgery, cancer, fractures, sprains, scoliosis, heavy metal toxicity, and many more.
My training began in psychology, with a BA and a Masters in counseling psychology. I then transitioned into bodywork of various kinds, including acupressure, massage, Jin Shin Do, infant massage, Reiki and various other bodywork techniques. CranioSacral therapy and SomotoEmotional release work have enabled me to effectively blend my psychological studies with my bodywork skills into a wholistic therapeutic modality I enjoy because of its gentleness, sensitivity and, most especially, its effectiveness in significantly helping people heal.
I am also continuing to explore different modalities within the field of craniosacral therapy and am incorporating a biodynamic craniosacral approach into my private practice work. I am a Techniques Certified CranioSacral Therapist with The Upledger Institute and have completed 2 2.5 year training programs, one as a Teaching Assistant. I am a Registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist with the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America. Teaching Craniosacral therapy has been another major component of my work. For two years, I taught a three month course on the fundamentals of Craniosacral therapy for the Body Therapy Center in Palo Alto. I have also offered one and 2 day Introduction to Craniosacral Therapy classes through the Upledger Institute, the Body Therapy Center and The Healing Arts Institute as well as serving as a Teaching Assistant for a number of the Upledger Institute's Craniosacral Therapy courses. I am currently a BCST Teacher-in-Training with the Pacific School for Biodynamic Integration in Soquel, CA.
