1. Please describe your
practice as a Massage Therapist.
The majority of my clients come in with complaints related to stress, including back, shoulder, neck and arm tension, and often the need to have a relaxing space to unwind. I work out of an office in my home, with a serene ocean/ beach like feel. I often incorporate candles, hot stone, aromatherapy, and relaxing music in to my sessions.
2. What is a typical week like
I see clients in the evenings Monday through Friday, and on weekends in the morning and early afternoon.

I absolutely love having the opportunity to provide others with a feeling of relaxation, tension release, and well being. Personally, it has expanded my belief that the body can help to heal itself and achieve its highest potential. I am so happy to tell others I am a Massage Therapist and I often get the most enthusiastic response.
4. What job or career did you
have prior to becoming a Massage Therapist?
I have a BA degree in psychology specializing in child development and women’s studies. I have worked in case management and health care coordination as well as been the director of an early education center.
5. What inspired you to become
a Massage Therapist?
My first massage was incredible and I wanted to be able to make others feel the same way. I also wanted to incorporate my desire to help others (psychology) with my fascination with how the human body works in a holistic way.
