My early upbringing prepared me for who I am to become today. A wise grandmother with a penchant for healing others through medicinal herbs and plants and a spiritual practice of honoring our ancestors; a beloved aunt who taught me how to massage and rub her back and shoulders; and of course, my astrological profile of Capricorn Sun, Gemini Rising, and Scorpio Moon with four interpersonal planets in Sagittarius in the sixth house of service and health and healing.
In 2001, I attended the esteemed Swedish Institute, College of Massage Therapy and Allied Health Sciences, a 1500 hour hands-on technical training and extensive educational study in massage therapy. I also hold certified trainings in Reflexology as well as Perinatal Massage. In 2014, I completed a two-year certification in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST). And currently, in 2018, I am pursuing a Foundations certificate course in Aromatherapy.
Within the last two years, I have created a unique line of aromatherapy blends called, Root and Resin. Wildcrafted, organic and/or wildharvested essential oils sourced from artisanal distillers and companies that support sustainability and environmental programs. The photo seen above is of me wild harvesting alligator juniper pine needles in Sedona, Arizona.
Now in my 15th year of private practice, I am excited to also be a cofounder of wellness space for community and sharing called SoulBeing Wellness. In this collective vision and partnership, I look forward to continuing one-to-one wellness and healing sessions as well as create and organize events for the community at large.
With so much gratitude,
