I am a licensed massage therapist living in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia. I studied at the Pacific Center for Awareness & Bodywork in Kauai with an inspiring group of teachers, including Kellie Berns, co-director of Ahimsa House, and Jess Radovich, founder of The Heart School. I am deeply interested in nature, somatics, relationship, and direct experience as paths to healing trauma. I believe practices of awareness in these areas bring about embodied transformation; they move us toward a a fuller sense of aliveness, greater capacity for connection (to ourselves, our loved ones, and all beings), and freedom amidst whatever arises.
