Below you will find a brief statement about my practice and treatment philosophy, as well as my educational background.
**Not listed is my informal apprenticeship with Dr. Carol Phillips from January thru August of 1993, prior to the formal classes she began teaching in 1997. I also taught along-side Dr. Phillips as an assistant for 7 years.**
I currently have a maternal and pediatric speciality in Craniosacral Therapy. I believe strongly in the inherent ability of the human body to heal, and I encourage individuals to seek the right combination of modalities for themselves. I can offer support in the biomechanical arena by assisting the body in functioning at an optimal level with the least amount of unnecessary energy expenditure. This enables the pediatric client to focus available energy on growth and development and the pregnant mother's body to carry her child without discomfort and optimized ease of delivery. I will often refer my clients to other care providers as indicated by their situation - be that chiropractic, massage, nutritional support, etc...
I have a great passion for the work that I do and feel greatly honored to provide care to the families in my practice.
