I began as a patient, just like you. I was in pain constantly. Mentally, physically and emotionally drained!  I was depressed. I was looking for answers. Solutions. Long term meaningful relief. I felt alone and not one medical provider had any answers or options other than more surgery and medications. I did not want to go down that slippery slope. Deep inside I knew there just had to be another way.

So, I sought out the education to treat myself and now I have the joy of sharing healing with you!

Have a special request or need? Let’s chat. 

I have helped my patients in various ways, some of them atypical. So, you may not even know you could ask for help like this. I have helped my patients outside of a typical session in some of these ways: 

-attending Surgeon or medical appointments to advocate as part of your healthcare team

-being a part of birth care team for live child birth (yes! I had the opportunity to support one of my patients in her labor as she did not have good experiences in previous ones and dealt with chronic pain)

-In home visits; post-partum, work or home ergonomics set up, due to temporary disability

-meeting at a local gym for strength training or movement in conjunction with hands on clinic care

-guided meditations at a distance 

-distance sessions in general for various reasons; anxiety, pandemic, travel, no one else to turn to
