As a developmental, birth and body-based therapist, my goal is to foster greater health and healing through the integration of emotional, physical and energetic experiences. My services are unique in many ways and my approach is relationship-based. I strive to create and maintain a safe and relaxed environment to explore the many factors contributing to your present day concerns
You've heard of The Back to Sleep Campaign, which started in the 90s as an effort to reduce the incidence of SIDS, right? Have you heard of Tummy to Play, the equally important second side of this champaign?
Tummy time is recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics as critical for healthy development, but without supportive instruction, many babies struggle on their tummy. It's common for babies to be moved from their back to parents arms, carriers, swings, and sleepers with minimal if any time on their tummies.
Tummy Time! Method is a fun, educational, and therapeutic experience, preparing baby for sequential motor and neurological development, unwinding torticollis, helping with reflux, colic, latch, tethered oral tissues, head molding, sleep, the parent-infant bond and so much more!
Babies 2 weeks - pre crawling. Current dates: 5 Tues. @ 4:30-5:30, July 3, 10, 17, 24, 31. To register, book a 15 min appointment. Then I will confirm your class details and answer questions.

Birth and Bonding Class Tuesdays in June 5th-26th
This class is essential for first time and experienced parents.
I will take you through an original curriculum based on my Masters level education in pre and perinatal psychology, 7 years of birth doula experience, and 12 years providing prenatal and infant massage.
Included in the course is anatomy, stages of labor, and creating a birth plan, as well as mindfulness, yoga and massage techniques to use before, during and after the birth.
I also bring in the perspective of the baby as a conscious participant in the birth experience. You will learn how to include the baby in the birth, what baby needs to feel safe immediately after birth, and how to understand baby's non-verbal communication during infancy.
The 8-hour curriculum is divided into 4 classes; dates vary. Class is limited to 4 couples. Privates are also available.
To register, please book a 15 min appointment, during which time I will confirm your class details and answer questions.

I provide manual therapy and parent education for newborn through pre-crawling babies. All babies benefit from bodywork after birth to help them grow from gestational constraint and the birth process (vaginal or Cesarian). Specific conditions that may draw your attention to needing bodywork include head turning preferences, torticollis, head flattening, reflux, colic, tight muscles, asymmetries, trouble at the breast (painful latch), tongue and lip tie, and constipation. Call/text me for more info.

60 Minute Massage
Please specify in your appointment request if you are interested in soft tissue table work or Thai Yoga therapy.
My table work is a blend of Swedish, myofascial and craniosacral therapy. I don't consider myself a "deep tissue" therapist which basically means I am not going to hurt you. My style is deeply therapeutic for physical and emotional stress.
Thai Yoga therapy is done on a floor mat, with the client fully clothed. The effects are energizing and relaxing and have been likened to a passive yoga class ( I do the work- you relax). Thai work is a combination of joint mobilization, stretching, and compression along energy lines and points similar to the meridian theories of acupuncture.
I work with people of all ages and levels of ability, including prenatal and postpartum moms, and children.
90 Minute Massage
