I feel a deep passion for guiding people back from pain and injury to the wholeness of their bodies.
I want to enable them to move every day with grace, power and ease. Humans are intricately built and our bodies do so much for us—even under the most difficult circumstances. But stress seems inevitable and injuries happen; with these come pain, restricted movement and sometimes a decreased ability to do what you love most.
I enjoy helping teenagers develop a connection with their bodies as a way to navigate feeling anxious. By cultivating the pause built into the Alexander Technique, my clients learn the importance of bodily agency. Ultimately this creates a feeling of safety – and we have to feel safe in order to learn and grow.
I listen to your story, get to the real source of chronic or acute pain, and figure out not only how to heal your injury but also how to help you minimize the risk of new injury in the future.
I am well versed in meditation, yoga, naturopathy and acupuncture and my knowledge of these disciplines informs my problem solving strategies. I think outside the box and am energized by challenges. I bring my best to each person who walks in my door with the hope of empowering them to understand their own body and providing them with the tools to best deal with their own circumstances.
My goal is your health and I measure success in your increased ability to move through daily life with confidence, ease and awareness of your body. I listen deeply—both to your story and also to what your body has to say—in order to find the best way to help you recover from your injury and sort out your discomfort. Health is greater than just the body; it encompasses the mind and more. That’s why I believe in healing for the whole person—body and mind. I have a forward looking, forward moving focus with the intent of being your partner as you move into full healing.
I’m With You Every Step of the Way
One of the most important things I’ve learned is that little victories add up to a lot of relief. I know that deep and full healing takes time and attention. While the “ah ha!” moments can help us leap forward, it’s the small steps that count. I get excited and inspired by every patient’s forward movement, even the tiniest of steps. I meet you where you are, providing you with practical suggestions that make sense for your body. Every person and every body is unique, so the plan that we create together is specialized specifically for you and your needs.
