I work in person with chronic pain concerns, athletic performance, injury or surgery rehab, pre & post natal care, or general health concerns.
I'm located at MoveRight, in downtown Squamish for in person appointments!
As a Registered Massage Therapist who brings a neuroscience and trauma informed approach to my manual treatments, I understand the importance of seeing the whole person for optimal health.
My fascination with health led me to initially pursue training in fitness, functional movement and exercise psychology, becoming a personal trainer in 2000, then pursuing yoga therapy where I worked with neurodivergent clients, and clients living with chronic pain.
In 2011 I became a registered massage therapist, graduating with honours from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy.
Since becoming an RMT I've focused on sport massage as a sport massage certification candidate, working with adult and youth athletes through training and injury recovery, perinatal care including an outreach for high risk pregnancies at Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto, and chronic pain with a focus on bringing more empowered self-care to manual therapy for chronic pain.
My own experience with recovering from chronic pain helps me bring compassion and experience to the process of regulation of the nervous system and calming pain signals during massage therapy treatments.
Whether you’re seeing Me for surgery or injury recovery, assistance in mobility or strength training, looking for comfort during pregnancy, or seeking out a more active approach to working through chronic pain, I'll have a treatment plan complete with self-care so you can continue the process after your treatments.
I understand how important it is for you to feel comfortable and capable in your body so that you can enjoy being active in the things that bring you joy, and I've dedicated my continuing education over the years to helping you reach those goals using evidence-based therapy.
When I'm not working with clients, you can find me mountain biking, hiking, paddle boarding, at the gym, singing, playing cello, reading a book, or just generally enjoying life.
