My passion is providing Holistic Health Care for vibrant health on all levels of being. I focus on one patient at a time in my lovely, cozy office. Each session is different, depending on the care needed, per visit.
I enjoy utilizing my range of experience to tailor my work to the unique, diverse needs of each patient. For the sensitive and traumatized patient, I understand the need for gentle care - while going deeper. Injuries, auto collisions, chronic fatigue, stress, and overwrought nervous systems respond well to my style. We take it gently: a step-by-step flow tailored just for the individual. My lifetime of continuing inner work makes this work possible. Simultaneously, I have full appreciation for those who regularly work their bodies hard and need a more direct approach. Those with chronic and acute pain and dysfunction from lots of physical work love my style, and find it essential for increased quality of life - especially as they head into the less-than-youthful years. In order to make life work in ease and harmony, we need balance. And we need to heal. Finding the right care to balance it all out can be a challenge. My intention is to help provide that healing balance.

Chiropractic Care & CranioSacral Therapy together... is a perfect combination. Aligning the spine before receiving CST provides highest benefit for both these modalities, they go hand in hand. When the spine is first aligned with a Chiropractic adjustment, and then CranioSacral Therapy is given, the results are incredible. The adjustment puts the spine into an optimal setting, allowing CST to go even deeper in effectiveness.
I teach tried and true real tools, coaching, support, insights, and an open heart for those who need assistance in dealing with stress, health concerns, chronic stress and recurring patterns, difficulties, and more.

Transformational Coaching can be done in office, or remotely.

TMJ: Help for Jaw Pain and Dysfunction
CranioSacral Therapy, soft tissue work, and chiropractic adjustments provide relief from chronic and acute jaw issues. Modalities are selected as needed.
What is at times overlooked or thought to be minor enough to ignore, jaw tightness and pain has a negative impact on one's overall health and well being. The jaw is a common place for stress of all kinds to be stored and as the autonomic nervous system tries to work it out, the teeth can and do suffer.
Your dentist might have referred you to me for assistance in this area.
Treatment is varied and dependent on the individual.
A gloved hand goes gently inside the mouth to apply pressure the the tight muscles there. When it is called for, the pressure might be deeper, while gauging moment to moment care with the patient. Massage therapy on the outside of the face, neck, and shoulders is utilized. CranioSacral Therapy is often used, too.
Spinal adjustments are given. The jaw might receive a very gentle adjustment.
Excellent results are achieved. The benefits are profound and effect the health of the whole body and being. This is very sensitive and unique work, and is taken step-by-step with a gentle, moment to moment approach.
