I am a Craniosacral Therapist. I have been in practice in Colorado and California for 29 years. I have studied in various styles of the work and have been blessed to train with many great teachers. These days my focus is Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy. People come to me for a variety of reasons, stress relief, pain, trauma both physical and emotional and some just for the deep relaxation that Craniosacral brings to the body /mind. I work with people of all ages including babies. I am a long time member of ABMP ( American Bodywork Massage Professionals) and the Craniosacral Association of North America.

This foundation offers a unique perspective for working with people through individual sessions, seminars, and workshops offered in America and throughout the world.
