About Me:

My goal is to get great results without compromising communication, consent or comfort. I am a licensed massage therapist, certified lymphedema therapist, certified manual lymphatic drainage therapist and have extensive continuing education in post op massage, craniosacral, oncology massage, scar tissue massage, cupping and more. 

My experience and education is in healthcare. I was a nurse aid working in various hospitals around Portland, but felt frustrated not having the time and resources patients need. Massage opened the door for me to create a space where I can provide personalized care. As someone who experiences chronic illness and has felt othered by medical professionals, it gives me so much joy to work with clients following their boundaries, wants and needs. I will probably throw in a few jokes as well. 

I know communication around bodies and health can be loaded. I work to integrate a trauma informed approach. 

I am queer, trans and fat affirming. I work to prioritize accessibility in my space and am also constantly learning and growing in my practice to provide culturally and identity responsive care; confronting and undoing how bias, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, ableism and white supremacy show up in this work. I know not all body work spaces are safe or welcoming for all bodies and people, so if you want to learn more about how this shows up in my practice, click here.
