With over twenty years of experience as a massage therapist, I weave together a blend of modalities which feel best suited to my client and their needs in that particular session-- with the ultimate goal of deep relaxation and decreased discomfort. I draw heavily from Swedish and Integrative massage, as well as Myofascial Release, Shiatsu and more. I am certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage, a gentle and rhythmic form of bodywork which can ease swelling and boost immunity. I have extensive training and experience with prenatal and postpartum massage (I taught these classes at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy for several years and worked on the Longmont United Hospital’s BirthPlace Massage Team for 18 years). I have had the honor of working with a wide variety of humans: pre- and post-surgical clients, oncology patients, teens, elders, athletes, hospice patients, and folks who simply wish to de-stress and re-connect.  

I pivoted from a career in book publishing to massage therapy in 1996 after experiencing my first-ever treatment. After months of neck pain and stiffness, I tried massage. Within a 30-minute session, the therapist did effective work on my neck and upper back—but then she took some time to address my chronically tight calves. I sensed that somehow this lower-leg work brought additional relief to my neck, and for the rest of that day I honestly couldn’t stop smiling! Something extremely powerful and interesting was going on here, and I felt compelled to learn more. Within less than a year, I was enrolled at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy.
