Our Providers

Licensed professionals with a true passion to help others and their community.



My love for healing began at an early age. My great grandmother was an herbal and energy healer in Mississippi and her passion greatly influenced my life’s work.

I have been working in the field of Massotherapy for 40 years and am an LMT (licensed massage therapist) and am certified through NCBTMB ( National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork). I have studied a variety of techniques beyond licensure requirements including an additional year of training in Structural Energetic Therapy (Structural Integration) in Florida, time at the Myopractic Institute in Texas and studied at the Beijing Massage Hospital in China where I was taught Chinese medicine manipulation and meridians as well as acupressure and acupuncture.

These practices help my clients experience benefits such as lower anxiety levels, increased blood supply to nurture the muscles and tissues, as well as improved muscle tone and increased elimination of toxic debris. Myopractic therapy also helps prevent or delay muscular atrophy (wasting) from forced inactivity.

I am devoted to serving the physical needs of others and working to improve the quality of their lives. My years of work and study have given me a deep understanding of the human body, as well as an understanding of energy pathways (chakras). With my training and care for my clients I work to support the whole person, helping to restore muscles to their optimal and original state and improve mental clarity with a reduction of stress.

I am committed to sharing the benefits of cell rejuvenation, muscle repair and toxin elimination with my current and future clients.

I want to help you help yourself find the person you have been missing. My goal is to meet you where you are and assist you in finding where you want to be. The idea of change can be exhausting, which is why change can be so difficult. I want to help make the road to change more attainable for you and something to run toward instead of running away. There are many reasons people shy away from healthy change and I want to help you find reasons to move toward change. These ideas can be scary, but I want to help reduce your fear. You will always be the driver and in charge of where you go, but sometimes a navigator can help you through uncharted territories, and that’s where I can help.

I have worked with many different age groups ranging from 8-66 years old. I have been trained with a person-centered approach combined with cognitive behavioral therapy. I have also explored art and other expressive therapies and continue to educate myself on mindfulness techniques. Humor is a big part of my identity as a counselor and I believe that being able to laugh can be very healing. I have experience with depression, anxiety, bipolar, social anxiety, trauma, borderline personality, and addiction. I have experience working with families, couples and group settings. I have extensive research in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and I am currently working on becoming a trauma certified practitioner.

I have researched the effects of how certain diagnoses physically make changes to the brain. I view mental health the same way a person sees physical health. There is something wrong and just because we cannot see what’s wrong doesn't mean it is not real. The treatment for a mental illness may be different from a physical illness, but the outcome should be the same: reduced or removal of discomfort. My passion is helping people know that they are not alone, their feelings are real, and together, find a way to reduce or remove the pain they are feeling.

When you aren't feeling your best it can be hard to find someone who will listen and work with you from where you are. I do my best to honor where my clients are beginning in the therapeutic process and helping them find change that is manageable so that they can make progress on their goals. Everyone has their starting point, pace and idea of success that is respected and followed throughout our work. My goal is to help you feel better and feel better about yourself - improving how you see yourself and for you to know you have worth, no matter what you've been through.

Drive and setting intentions can be contagious. I have a deep motivation to help people find new ways to work through their problems and concerns.

I received my independent licensure from the state of Ohio in June 2008 and since then have worked as a therapist contracted with a variety of counseling practices and agencies.
