My experience began as a Massage Therapist and Energy Worker (focused on Reiki). I then went on to study Thai Bodywork (200 hours) and received my Asian Bodywork Therapy certification (695 hours). During this time I began teaching Reiki, worked as a massage therapist at a spa, taught at the massage school I graduated from (Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, now called Pacific College of Health and Science), and began my solo first clinical practice.

I extensively studied with the Upledger Institute from 2003-2019. My focus was on CranioSacral therapy, where I completed their Advanced 3 course and became a Diplomate of CranioSacral Therapy (CST-D). I also studied Lymph Drainage, Brain Curriculum, Visceral Manipulation, and gained certification in Zero Balancing through the Upledger Institute, the Chikly Health Institute, and the Zero Balancing Health Association.

I received a Master’s degree in Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine) through Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (now called Pacific College of Health and Science).

I had a holistic health practice seeing clients from 2003-2016: working in private practice, for integrative clinics, spas, and a hospice/end of life facility focused on cancer and ALS as a Chinese Medicine practitioner (Acupuncturist/Herbalist), CranioSacral Therapist, Energy Worker, and Spiritual Practitioner. In 2016 I closed down my in-person practice and since that time have been focused on spiritual teaching and writing as well as distance healing.

All of my education and studies have led me full circle. I express incredible gratitude towards the teachers, gurus, books, and the educational institutions that have been such a large part of my path. 

In 2019 I came to a place of peace where I simply desired to be of service to others and to experience reality as it is. I began a process of letting go, and of allowing practices and experiences that once so defined my life and identity to release. My practices these days are focused on communion and learning to listen and be with the forces that surround and flow through me.

I have had an ever-deepening relationship with the Other for many years now, and view it as a vital source of nurturing, creativity, and evolution. My healing work, teaching and writing is a direct result of my spiritual path, and I express an incredible amount of gratitude that my own evolution has been able to be a catalyst for others.
