“I welcome clients of all life stages and conditions and I look forward to facilitating lasting change in their lives.”


Born and raised in Vancouver, I have traveled the world whenever possible. In my travels, the pain and suffering that I have witnessed struck me and I have been continually amazed with the amount of relief that the power of touch can bring. I am proud to be part of a profession that uses this power to bring health and wellness to people’s lives.


After completion of my BA from McGill University and traveling through Africa, Asia and Australia, I settled back in Vancouver to work as a recruiter. While this field did allow me to work helping others, it did not fulfill my desire to work with my hands and to visually and physically realize the product of my work. I then completed the 3000 hour program at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy, and have since been practicing as a Registered Massage Therapist. Through my massage experience, I have realized my passion in being a part of the healthcare field, treating not just the presenting injury or the symptoms, but the whole person by discovering the nature of the problem and working with my clients to facilitate lasting change in their bodies and lives.

My interests lie in myofascial and craniosacral therapy and in Women’s Health, with a plan to pursue continued education in visceral and cranial treatment. When life allows, I am also a doula, a cyclist and I try to maintain a yoga practice.

Some techniques that I use in treatment sessions are: Myofascial Release, CranioSacral Therapy, Trigger Point Release, Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching and Strengthening and Breast Care. All techniques can be modified to facilitate Pregnancy massage with pregnancy pillows provided.

My training has prepared me to safely address a variety of conditions such as headaches, sinus pain, postural conditions, soft tissue injuries, orthopedic injuries, chronic pain and stress management, restricted range of motion and scar tissue, digestive concerns, perinatal care and breast care.

Driven by an inquisitive mind, I constantly strive to further my education and to inform my clients.

I would be honoured to be part of your path to health and wellness and look forward to seeing you for a treatment.
