Like so many in this field, I came to this work through my own suffering. From a very young age, I struggled with what well-meaning doctors labeled as "depression." I have never liked being labeled, or put into a box and analyzed. I tried everything that I and my family could think of to "fix" me. I did endless hours of therapy, tried various medications, went to support groups, read self-help books, went to personal growth seminars, to name but a few strategies. These were all life-altering experiences, and yet I still suffered.
I became attracted to Quantum-Touch® and my other main modalities because, with these approaches, the focus is not on what is wrong with us -- the focus is on what is right. It has been such a blessing to be seen for who I really am rather than a big mess of pain and suffering. I have come to realize that, on a very deep level, we all have an innate healing capacity. And so now, as my own healing journey continues to unfold, I offer support to others on their journeys. I create a safe, compassionate, non-judgmental space where you are free to explore the connection between your body, mind, and spirit and come to know and experience your own innate healing capacity.
As for the formalities, I regularly combine three main modalities in my sessions: Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST), Polarity Therapy, and Quantum-Touch®. My main modality and specialty is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST). I studied BCST at the Colorado School of Energy Studies (700 hours) in Boulder, Colorado. At the same school in Boulder, I also completed my training in Polarity Therapy (120 hours). On the beautiful island of Kauai, I completed my practitioner training in Quantum-Touch® (160 hours). Other modalities I sometimes integrate into sessions include Zen Shiatsu and Massage Therapy. I graduated from the 1000-hour program at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy and also completed the advanced certification training in Zen Shiatsu (200 hours) at that school. I have also taken an advanced training in using BCST with infants, and I have experience as both an intern and volunteer with various Hospice organizations. I integrate and weave together all of these modalities and experiences into my sessions.I look forward to supporting you on your healing journey!
