Therapeutic Support for Pregnancy, Labor and Beyond

Growing up among a peaceful forest in Portland, Oregon, my summer days were often spent working in my mother's garden. I would watch as she tenderly nurtured her seedlings everyday, watering, weeding and trimming the buds for what seemed like forever.

Growing up among a peaceful forest in Portland, Oregon, my summer days were often spent working in my mother's garden. I would watch as she tenderly nurtured her seedlings everyday, watering, weeding and trimming the buds for what seemed like forever. The anticipation was almost unbearable until suddenly, the first bloom emerged and the feelings of awe and accomplishment swept over my body. These experiences and feelings I had as a young child embedded in me an appreciation for the humble and slow process of life and I took it upon myself to try to live with nature as my guide, especially in regards to healthcare. I believe that both massage therapy and doula work allow me to live patiently, enabling me to nurture and cultivate relationships with people while providing them relief from the stresses of everyday life.

I have been practicing massage since 2012 and am certified in Pre & Perinatal massage through courses taught by Carole Osbourne and Kate Jordan, both leaders in the field of pregnancy massage. I have also been trained in deep tissue, StrainCounterstrain (positional release), sports massage, injury treatment, lymphatic drainage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. I took my DONA approved doula course in 2014 and have been attending births ever since. I recently relocated to San Diego, CA and am looking forward to serving the people here.
