When you come in my door, I am there for you 100% with whatever skills I have to help you feel better.  Your experience with me will be diverse and thorough.  A normal session may include some settling, a check-in that might include some resourcing verbally, intelligent bodywork of all kinds with your choice of oil, essential oil, cream, hot stones, craniosacral therapy.  For pre and perinatal work, I work with moms and babies together and separately, or with adults on the floor and the table.  I like meeting you where you are and my door is always open if you want to come back.  I make recommendations for treatment based on my years of experience.
