Shanti Center Co-Owner, Soma Structural Integration & Massage Therapist

I have been practicing bodywork since 2013. As my practice has evolved I have served a wide range of clients with different backgrounds, needs and goals for bodywork. My sessions range from helping people get out of pain and shifting chronic pain patterns, to facilitating a deeper connection in body-mind-spirit and felt sense awareness, to promoting structural balance for more easeful posture and movement, to helping folks unwind from a stressful week at work. Whatever your goals for bodywork, I aim to meet you where you are and seek to understand how I can best support you in your journey. Through my practice I hope to contribute to a kinder, more compassionate, more embodied world.

I offer Soma Neuromuscular Integration as part of an 11-session series, ongoing treatment or maintenance sessions, and/or as stand-alone sessions designed to facilitate greater structural balance and easeful movement. This is also potent work for shifting chronic pain patterns and healing old injuries. I also offer Somassage and Integrative Massage Therapy for those looking for something more closely resembling typical massage therapy and for those seeking relaxation & stress relief. My work is slow, deep and meditative, with the intention of helping to ease your body/mind/spirit into deeper harmony and balance.

Healing Artist & Bodyworker

I use embodied and trauma informed touch to bring awareness to the body, to help release how the physical body holds stress, tension, and trauma. I specialize in Therapeutic massage, Thai Table massage, Shirodhara Therapy, and Lymphatic Drainage. My style of touch ranges from light touch with oscillation to deeper work, incorporating elements of Ayurveda, myofascial release, Pranic breath work, lymphatic, and Trigger Point work.

I will bills several insurance companies and am actively accepting new LNI and PIP patients.



Acupuncture & Eastern Medicine Practitioner

My treatment style lends towards gentler needling techniques (including non-insertion options), bodywork including Tuina and Sotai, and tuning forks. I occasionally use cupping and moxibustion and offer lifestyle recommendations as needed including diet, acupressure, qigong exercises, and seasonal practices for wellness. I aim to create a space and pace of safety, so that healing can be allowed to unfold naturally. I’m continuously amazed and challenged by the depth of this medicine and how it can address all levels of mind, body, and spirit simultaneously.

Structural Integration Bodywork, Tuning Forks, Hypnotherapy

I have been practicing bodywork and energy work since 1992. Through my diverse modalities, I aim to enhance physical vitality and foster self-understanding. My passion lies in helping clients tap into their personal power and innate ability to heal, addressing both surface-level and core aspects of their being. I hold a special fascination with exploring and regulating the nervous system as a means to expand consciousness.

Receiving bodywork has been the most consistent and powerful pathway of obtaining health and increasing self awareness I have experienced.  I graduated in 1992 from the Brian Utting School of Massage and continued training at The Bellevue School of Massage in Bodymind Shiatsu, and then at the Soma Institute in 2005 as a Certified Advanced Soma Practitioner.  As a true believer and experienced provider and recipient of Soma and massage, I am honored to pass on the work to my clients who want to experience the gift of physical and emotional balance: freedom of pain, healing from injury, nurturing the immune system, increased flexibility and grace, self awareness and internal peace.

Licensed Massage Therapist

I’m passionate about helping people relieve painful symptoms that they present with and formulate treatment plans that help them build awareness in their bodies and manage their symptoms so that they can feel empowered, embodied, and rejuvenated.

I am a graduate of the massage program at Whatcom Community College, class of 2022. At WCC, I resonated most with me with treatment & trigger point therapy during my training, and use these modalities most.

My career as a yoga teacher and movement coach has been a huge inspiration for me to become a massage therapist and I’m excited to continue to grow as a wellness professional. My goal is to empower my clients by educating them about their body’s systems and helping them develop tools to maximize their physical health.

I am highly skilled, ethical, and professional and I look forward to growing my expertise as a massage therapist and contributing to our growing industry. I deeply care about being an evidence and research-informed practitioner and am dedicated to conducting legitimate research throughout my career and thinking critically in all aspects of my career as a massage therapist.
