Somatic Approaches to Manual Therapies & Wellness Coaching

Somatic Approaches to Manual Therapies & Wellness Coaching

MA-Cert; BA; RCST; BCST-D; VCSW-D; CPSI-D; PLC-D; ABD.

I've had a Manual Therapy healing practice for over 30 years. The path to healing arises from a deep listening, attaining balance & flow between the physical, emotional & spiritual aspects of our being.  
I put myself through University and Graduate school working as a massage therapist. While in grad school, from an inspired vision, I designed & taught a program on therapeutic touch for the elderly at the Desert Institute for the Healing Arts.
Upon completing my academic studies, I became aligned with the holistic healing perspectives that were coming of age at the time. I've been engaged in this approach to wellness & healing, in vocation & avocation, since.
My skills as a Somatic practitioner are technically & intuitively informed. My extensive clinical training dovetails perfectly with deep studies in eastern & western spiritual & psychological traditions, & long term apprenticeships with Mexican-American, Peruvian & Hawaiian healers. 
I've been an instructor at the Desert Institute for the Healing Arts, a visiting instructor at Bastyr Naturopathic Medical University, & a continuing education instructor at Memorial Hospital. Presently my full time practice includes wellness coaching & medical qigong to empower clients to become actively engaged with their healing process. 
I'm an artist, trained in dance, fine art photography, mixed media, & design. My home is my current palette, where I love creating peaceful, healing, & beautiful spaces for all who enter to enjoy. 
Compassion & curiosity coupled with a deep connection to spirit informs my healing work. I love getting up for work every day, facilitating clients on their path towards healing & their quest to live healthy, happy & meaningful lives.
