I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I have four amazing brothers; I am the oldest and the only girl. I graduated from Baylor University with a bachelor’s in Psychology and then went on to get my master’s degree in Clinical Counseling. I have spent the majority of my career as a Psychotherapist working mainly in the field of addictions. I worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings prior to having my own practice while living in Naples, FL.
In 2010 after a significant car accident, I knew it was time for a change, both in my career and geographically. After spending the summer traveling around California, I visited friends who had just moved to Denver. I knew instantly Colorado was the next place for me. I moved to Denver three months later.
People often ask me why I chose to become a massage therapist? I think that is a fair question given my career in Psychotherapy. I am a perpetual student. Whether I am attending a personal growth and development workshop or continuing education, I am committed to becoming the best version of myself I can be. Through my years as a therapist and doing my own work, I have realized a few things. Trauma gets stuck in the body; our cells have memory. Sometimes even though we analyze, reflect, and work with a therapist, there are areas we just can’t seem to access consciously.
I believe touch is one of the most overlooked resources we have for health and healing. When the body feels safe, heard and supported, new insights can arise, old patterns can release, and the body can come into alignment and restore itself. Sometimes it is helpful to step away from the verbal story of our trauma and allow the body to feel and connect with the present moment through healing touch. As the late Wayne Dyer says, “Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.”
I am abundantly grateful to be here in Denver, living my passion. My intention is be safe space for relaxation, healing and transformation; mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Through the experience of massage, there is opportunity for self-discovery, healing and growth. I believe in empowering clients to take their health into their own hands by educating, leading by example, and motivating to create true and lasting change through ongoing self-care. I look forward to working with you wherever you are on your healing journey. As Ram Dass says so simply, "We are all just walking each other home."
