Hi, I'm a massage therapist and health coach based in Washington, DC.
Massage & Bodywork: Feeling whole and without pain
I start every session with "how can I help you today?"
I enjoy the detective work of what is informing the pain one is experiencing, and, in turn, identifying the most appropriate way to address that pain or need in the moment. When our bodies are screaming, it's hard to pay attention to anything else.
Neuromuscular therapy, specializations
Neuromuscular therapy identifies pain patterns and addresses area of muscle hypertonicity (the trigger point) to address that pattern. Together with postural assessment (evaluating how is one holding their body), root causes of pain can be identified and treated.
I have particular interest in neck and shoulder dysfunction, which includes (but certainly not limited to) migraines, chronic headaches, frozen shoulder, pain from whiplash (or similar injury), and athletic performance and injury recovery.
Coaching: Authentically You and Fully Supported
If you are feeling disconnected from your body and health and want to re-establish what “healthy” and whole feels like now, then this coaching-for-embodiment can help you get there.
Health & wellness is incredibly multifaceted - mental, emotional, spiritual, relational, physical, occupational - these all influence how we feel each day in the moment and about our direction. When managing life with a chronic condition, recovery from an acute injury or event, or at any life inflection point, this becomes even more evident.
I seek to provide others with the space to learn about embodiment and define what health means to you and identify what you want. That's the place to start.
Collaboration in practice: Healthcare as it can be
We - healthcare providers - need to help each other. There is no other choice. I actively partner with other healthcare professionals (MD, ND, L.Ac., psychotherapists, physical therapists) to provide comprehensive treatment plans that honor the patient's needs and practitioner capacity. Stay tuned.
