Licensed in 2015, I have been focused on providing specific bodywork for pain reduction and injury rehabilitation. Growing up in the beautiful Willamette valley, I have a deep appreciation of nature, hiking, fishing, gardening and being outdoors. I am a massage therapy teacher at Lane Community College. I believe that healing can be brought into any situation, and even the worst situations can benefit from bodywork. Finding new ways to care for our bodies can be an important part of the healing process. Developing a deeper understanding of our pain can put us in an advantageous position to be able to choose activities that help our body, and be aware of factors that perpetuate pain.
