My Background


I moved from New York and relocated to Connecticut.


It is peaceful, calming, with warm and friendly neighbors, and an enriched and welcoming community.  It was foreign at first, because when you suffer trauma throughout your life, new things can seem challenging when starting over. 

After graduating massage school, (and experiencing such a deep connection of mental, emotional, spirtual and physical growth), I instinctually knew what my calling was to be as a bodyworker. I specialize in trauma and anxiety with my clients.


I profoundly discovered peace, serenity, and a sense of beingness becoming a massage therapist.

My Approach

Every massage therapist has a unique style.

We all go to school to learn the basics and as we grow and emerge in class, we begin to develop who we are as therapists and who we wish to become as therapists.


My focus is trauma and my massage style is slower and broader strokes as to NOT bring further trauma to the body and instead allow the body to do it's actual job of healing itself. I prefer to use flat hands and forearms with my strokes, and will deepen the pressure in areas where needed or when a client requests, but I will not engage the muscle in a harsh way or a traumatic way. The body is built by design to naturally work itself out, but we must be in a state of calm and relaxation in order for the body to fully do it's job. 

If you are seeking a different style of massage, I have a network of therapists that I will gladly refer you to. 

The goal is to be connected to your therapist that is right for you!  


She believed she could, so she did.
