Change you body, Transform your life.


I am all about health and wellness.  As a Pilates instructor for 14 years, I love to help people discover their bodies in a deeper sense and to experience the mind body approach to greater health and mental well being.  I have a strong scientific background (M.S from Oregon State University) and years of working with plants, herbs, food and movement to encourage health and alignment.

I am all about health and wellness.  As a Pilates instructor for 14 years, I love to help people discover their bodies in a deeper sense and to experience the mind body approach to greater health and mental well being.  I have a strong scientific background (M.S from Oregon State University) and years of working with plants, herbs, food and movement to encourage health and alignment.
My deep love of Pilates lead me to working with people with chronic alignment and pain issues. I found myself wanting to help my students obtain greater freedom in their bodies and I began to see how body misalignment and compensation patterns manifest themselves in unorganized and stuck tissues, limiting movement and creating pain.  My own journey with Fibromyalgia and chronic pain was a catalyst for seeking new ways to address pain and misalignment.
I rediscovered Rolf Structural Integration in 2011..   It was transformative in mind body and spirit.  Not only was my pain reduced greatly, but I found that the deep work with the central nervous system greatly calmed me and reduced my sensitivity to widespread Fibromyalgia pain.  
Since then, I have received my Rolf Certificate of Structural Integration from the Guild for Structural Integration, Boulder Colorado, my National Certification from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, and my Oregon License Massage Therapist Certification.  My life has changed in so many ways that I feel like a completely different person.
During my five months at the Guild studying the Rolf Method of Structural Integration School I saw 50 people experience the Rolf Ten Series and worked with numerous talented practitioners, trading client stories and experiences.  Before and after photos of each of these clients were taken so that we could record the changes in their alignment.  While these photographic changes were stunning and amazing, it was the personal accounts of their journeys and transformations that intrigued me.  Most Rolfers/Structural Integrators experience Rolf Structural Integration as a sort of wizidry, a magic that is so much greater than all the pieces.  We feel gratitude to have found this calling and to be a part of the alchemy.  
The great and beautiful complicated workings of each individual’s body and the winding and unwinding of their deepest fabric is what compels me to this process.  I am grateful to my clients to be a part of their journey.
