About

I believe everyone deserves to enjoy the wonderful feeling of true health. I have practiced holistic medicine for 20 years. Through my professional and personal experience, I know true health comes from healing the mind, body and spirit. I fell in love with holistic medicine because it addresses the whole person in this way. Whether you arrive in my office looking for a last-ditch effort to heal or you want to indulge in a luxurious deep healing experience, I offer you my full expertise, presence and compassion.

I fell in love with healing work at a very young age. As a teen, I had experience with addictions and PTSD, which left me with a severely damaged digestive system and chronic fatigue. When I was 15, I went to the Kripalu Center and learned about yoga, bodywork, conscious eating and meditation. Not only did these practices heal me: I’m convinced they saved my life. Having experienced the power of true healing, I returned annually to Kripalu and have also spent time in residence there, immersing myself in their teachings about holistic living.

As a practitioner today in Boulder, CO, I bring wholehearted love and presence to each session. I listen fully to every client's story and I want to hear what is truly alive for you. I am an intuitive healer. After practicing for 20 years, I am able to recognize even subtle imbalances through sight and touch, powerfully treating underlying patterns which can finally give you the relief you are seeking. Each session is custom crafted specifically for your exact desires and needs. I offer basic acupuncture  sessions or Ceremonial Botanical Bodywork sessions where I blend shamanic medicine, soulful bodywork & acupuncture. Working together, with both reverence and humor, we bring the fullest expression of your health into blossom.
