A NY state licensed massage therapist since 1998, I began my Craniosacral therapy training in 2000 with the Upledger Institute (UI). My education continued with courses in Somato Emotional Release (UI), Craniosacral Therapy for Pediatrics (UI), Prenatal Massage, Body-Centered Counseling (Soma-Psyche Institute), Somatic Intuition (Ron DeAngelo, PhD), Craniosacral Biodynamics (Wellness Institute - RCST), CST for Babies and Small Children (Etienne Piersman), Pre and Perinatal Birth Therapy (Chantia Smith, CPM), and Bach Flower Remedies (Noga Kreiman-Miller - Practitioner certification).
I have been working with babies and children and Craniosacral therapy since 2002. As a mother of 2, I feel my experiences with them deeply inform my pediatric practice and ground my work with expectant and post-natal mothers.
Formerly a professional modern dancer, I enjoy movement for the body in a myriad of forms. I love to run, snowboard, cycle, swim, practice yoga, dance, etc. I have taught anatomy and am experienced in strength training, stretching and conditioning. This allows me to bring an intimate knowledge of the demands of the active body to my work.
