Writing a bio is difficult, because the work I do here isn't about me, it's about you and your wellness. But it's important for people to know who their therapist is, and why they chose to enter the healthcare profession.
My whole life I've wanted to ease pain, help people (and animals) heal, and to make a positive difference in the lives of those around me. I've been a farmhand, landscaper, office manager, warehouse manager, truck driver, retail clerk, musician, hockey coach, parent, and healthcare professional, so I understand the stress, anxiety, and the physical demands and injuries people from all walks of life endure. I've also lived with anxiety and panic disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, agoraphobia, back & neck injuries, weight/self-esteem issues, and other conditions. Facing those struggles inspired me to pursue a career in healthcare, so I could use my experiences to offer true understanding and support, ease suffering, and help people return to living healthy, happy lives.
In 1998 I graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, passed the state and national certification exams, and opened my own practice in Connecticut, where I worked full-time until relocating to Southern New Hampshire in 2016. In addition to my 18 years of experience, I have taken hundreds of hours of continued education to learn new techniques and further hone my skills. I am currently a fully-licensed Massage Therapist in the state of New Hampshire, and a Professional Member of the American Massage Therapy Association.
My goal entering every session is to give you my very best, and have you leave feeling better than when you walked in. Every person who walks through my door is unique, with their own needs, and I use my training, experience, skill, and array of therapeutic techniques to help you recover and feel good again.
