I have been practicing massage since 2011, when I completed the 1000 hour certified massage therapist program at The Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado. The curriculum had an emphasis on medical/therapeutic massage techniques. Right away, I fell in love with the art of massage therapy and knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be.


After the year long program, I immediately began a private practice. And shortly after that, I moved to Hawaii. During my years of living in Hawaii, I also learned the art of Lomi Lomi massage, a very relaxing and rhythmic style of massage. I have attended workshops all over the country and continue to further my education in various realms of healing. My specialties include Deep Tissue Neuromuscular  (Trigger Point) Therapy, Myofascial Release, Hot Stone Massage, Cupping Therapy, and Relaxation Massage.

I have also been a Reiki practitioner since 2009.

Over the years, I have shaped my focus around working with chronic pain management, injury rehabilitation, and working with athletes. Each massage is unique, intentional, and intuitive. I bring compassion and presence to each of my sessions. 

I also love to incorporate essential oils into my sessions. My goal is to provide relief from pain and stress, and to help facilitate self-healing and deep relaxation.
