About Me

Thank you for checking out my website and taking the time to look further into who I am.  I look forward to meeting you soon.

Here are some basics:

I am located in Key West, Florida where I work from my in-home studio near the Southermost Point.  

I have been practicing massage since 1994.  I trained in Atlanta, GA at Capeli Learning Center where I completed a beautifully integrated training in both Eastern and Western modalities: Swedish and Deep Tissue from the West and Traditional Thai Massage from the East.   As I've moved along in my career I continued various trainings and was certified in reflexology, lymphatic drainage and a wonderful variety of body treatments from salt scrubs, to seaweed and mud body wraps.   I trained in St. Malo, France and also at Wat Po in Bangkok, Thailand where I furthered my training in Traditional Thai Massage.  

*********

The body continues to unfold and mystify me and so I have  continued my academic career in San Francisco, CA where I received a MA in Counseling Psychology with a focus on Somatic Psychotherapy at the California Institute of Integral Studies.   I have followed this thread as I've begun to understand more and more how our bodies carry our "story" and our life is played out in the Theatre of the body - so it made perfect sense to me - if I am going to be working with bodies and their stories... I need to be prepared to facilitate the journey.   

In my practice as a massage therapist (not a licensed Psychotherapist), my goal is to create a safe place for you to come and explore the landscape that is your body.   Maybe that is through traditional bodywork- relaxing and savoring the sensations of the vehicle of the body.  Maybe it is through more deliberate intention and meditative work to connect with higher self.  Maybe ...  it is simply to experience connection through touch and to allow ourselves to be present to receiving this gift that we often are denied for numerous reasons.  Whatever your reason - it is the right reason.   

I would love to chat with you more and I am happy to answer any questions that you may have about me or the work that I do.   Feel free to email or call me.  Until then....

 Be well,
