Craniosacral Therapy & Integrative Bodywork
At the heart of my practice is meeting my clients where they are in the moment, listening deeply, and supporting them through the healing process with compassion. My work draws from several therapeutic modalities from different traditions, as well as my own heritage and personal journey.
I’m a 5th generation Californian and a Berkeley native with a diverse family heritage. I began studying bodywork in 2000 and have over 2700 hours of training in several hands-on, somatic, movement, and mindfulness-based healing systems. I've attended training programs in the Bay Area, Seattle, Hawaii, Asia, and Europe. Before stepping into my role as a healing arts practitioner, I received a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Cruz, and spent almost a decade working in the tech world. Since 2021 I've been teaching Craniosacral Therapy to students at McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland.
My approach is focused on the more subtle modalities as I've found that they offer the most profound and long-lasting results. Craniosacral Therapy played a central role in my own healing process, transforming my life and paving the way towards the discovery of my calling in the healing arts. I’m continuously amazed by the power and effectiveness of this modality and feel honored to share it with others.
My work as a healing arts practitioner is always evolving as I continue my education and explore new possibilities. I practice meditation, yoga, qi gong, and I'm a certified teacher of Hatha Yoga, Lu Jong Tibetan Yoga, and Embodied Meditation. I'm also a NARM (NeuroAffective Relational Model) Complex Trauma professional. I'm interested in the intersection of wellness and technology, early childhood development and attachment, and I'm an ongoing student of Medical Qi Gong. My interest in community and collective healing led me to co-found a Craniosacral clinic in 2014. When I’m not seeing clients in my practice, I can be found writing, hiking, collaging, singing, and spending time with my daughter.
