Traveling hands, traveling heart

I'm a NY Licensed Massage Therapist, End-of-Life Doula & Reiki Practitioner. While I love working with all people, I especially love my work with the elderly and critically ill. After 10 years in Seattle I recently returned back home to the Hudson Valley. I live with my husband, Frank, and our dog, Max. I love to garden and cook and I am learning to throw pottery.

I'm a NY Licensed Massage Therapist, End-of-Life Doula & Reiki Practitioner. While I love working with all people, I especially love my work with the elderly and critically ill. After 10 years in Seattle I recently returned back home to the Hudson Valley. I live with my husband, Frank, and our dog, Max. I love to garden and cook and I am learning to throw pottery.


I attended the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in Albany, NY. My education there was 1020 hours and included extensive anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and pathology, as well as massage techniques such as swedish, myofascial release, shiatsu, sports massage, neuromuscular therapy, and energy work. I have additional training in oncology massage, prenatal and postnatal massage, hospital-based massage therapy, massage for hospice patients, and pain-relief massage. I am trained to work on a massage table, portable massage chair, and at the bedside.

I received my End-of-Life Doula training and certification from Doulagivers, with additional certification and training through NEDA (The National End-of-Life Doula Alliance) and the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Foundation. I have thus far completed Reiki 1, 2, and advanced training. I have a BFA from NYU.
