Contemplative Healer

Physical Therapist

Craniosacral Therapist

Somatic Experiencing Practioner




I am so excited that you have found me!  My life’s purpose is to help decrease the pain and suffering in this world…let’s start with you and the spaces you inhabit!

My Story

There is a time in life when everything seems to fall into place; a time when each individual experience combines into an integrated whole. My life has been a conglomerate of opportunities that have led me to this time of putting it all together to become the most effective practitioner possible.

I have been constantly learning about the human experience…through being a college athlete, attaining a Masters degree in education and teaching at Boys Town High School…through becoming a Physical Therapist, working in the field of chronic pain and then specializing at a Neurology clinic.  Each opportunity in and of itself was impactful, and putting it all together has allowed me to develop a wide and deep scope of understanding.

Developing a rich therapeutic presence with my patients is what brings the magic to the table. I have done much personal work in helping to create a large container within to better help hold others’ pain. Developing a mediation, yoga, and contemplation practice has broadened my understanding of Spirit. My specialized training in Craniosacral Therapy and Somatic Experiencing has taught me techniques to help others to optimize their own way of walking on this earth. These treatments provide a powerful platform for creating peace and integration. I have extensive experience with hands on healing and as a provider have learned the crucial aspect of combining the physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological realms.

My Values & Beliefs

I believe every person has the possibility to manifest their greatest good.

I believe every individual should have a safe environment where true love and compassion can be experienced.

I value the blessing that comes when you’re in a state of connection and expansion that leads to the state of grace.

I value giving yourself permission to be the person you’re meant to be even beyond the cellular level.

I value the presence of the inner guidance and wisdom that is present in every living being.

What’s in a Name?

Compassionate Purification & Transformation

My Approach

Everything I seek is right here, within me and around me.  The greatest healer comes from my very own system, for who knows my body and spirit better than me?  Unfortunately, life stressors separate me from this wisdom and over time I forget this amazing mechanism which is ever present.  

As a Contemplative Healer, I can help you to rediscover your own healer, your own wisdom and guide you toward the true life you were meant to live.  Do you remember the first time you skinned your knee?  Were you amazed at how it developed that scab and then just magically turned back into your own skin?  That is the inner healer at work in you; and yes, it is still at work, no matter what your age or your condition.

The light within is always here.  Healing is a returning to our inner nature, our essence. The sacred is ever present and we need multiple tools to learn to tap into the true beauty of the human experience.  To become whole is to find true happiness.
