Back in 1997, I moved from Australia to Portland, Oregon and soon after went to East~West College of Healing Arts to study massage. Over the next 18 years I developed a love for Traditional Thai Massage which brought into focus the mind-body-emotion-spirit connection. From there, the desire to work with people on the psychologically and spiritually levels in connection with the body blossomed and grew. After some exploration I discovered Core Energetics Therapy and felt like I had arrived home! I enrolled in a 3 year intensive program with Ken Goldberg M.D. and graduated in September 2016. Upon the expansion of my practice Living Body Temple came to life where I offer mind~body counseling and continue doing massage.
Additional influences in my work are an innate desire to help others, priestess and Buddhist, parenting, guided visualization, and subtle energy work. .
I consider it a great honor to be of service in the field of healing arts. Creating and holding a safe, nurturing space for people to tend to their physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual aches and pains is deeply satisfying. For this I am grateful. Thank you for being you, for showing up, and sharing your gifts with the world ~ you are needed, you are lovable, and you are enough.
