She/her

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist with a certificate from East West College Of Healing Arts. My focus is Swedish relaxation, deep tissue, neuromuscular and craniosacral therapy. My approach to bodywork is personalized: every session I hold is different because it’s based around your wants and needs. I believe we are the product of a variety of experiences and conditions. Our bodies react and carry that differently, presenting in ways that are both resourceful and resilient. I am not going to fix you— instead I hope to help facilitate and support your goals for your body and mind. You are an expert on your body and I am here to honor that. 

I base our sessions around consent and trust. I strive to build a positive therapeutic relationship that will enables you to advocate for yourself.

I am committed to learning, growing and being actively anti-racist in my massage practice and daily life. I believe quality, safe healthcare is a human right. 

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, backpacking, traveling, playing ice hockey, cooking elaborate vegan meals with friends, cuddling my cats, and being active in the Portland music community.
