          We often don’t realize how much stress, trauma and repressed emotions take a toll on our physical body as much as they do our mind & spirit. As an intuitive massage therapist and reiki energy healer, my goal is to work together with my clients to best address their individual needs and concerns. My hope is to facilitate sessions that are a place to release physical tension, quiet the mind, calm the spirit, & help cultivate a state of inner alignment & peace.
