In 2019, I completed advanced training in the treatment of lymphedema and cancer care. I am a practicing Massage Therapist, a Combined Decongestive Therapist (CDT), as well as, an educator in health care professions. It has been my experience that healing can occur most effectively in an environment that is gentle, safe, and supportive. Working with individuals to achieve their personal optimum level of health and wellness is a professional challenge and joy. Most recently, I had my own journey with breast cancer which has inspired me to turn my therapeutic focus toward cancer care, comfort massage, and lymphedema treatment. My work in the fields of health, wellness, and cancer care gives me the opportunity to follow my heart and to use my skills as part of a transformational healing relationship. I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
