Thank you for your interest in my private clinical practice in craniosacral, massage therapy, and counseling.  I have been a practicing/licensed Massage Therapist in the state of New Hampshire since 1988.

My services do not include diagnosis but offer a complete range of  massage therapies and counseling for relief of a simple cold, relaxation & stress management, sports massage, cardio-vascular support and lymphatic drainage as well as pre & perinatal massage for mother and child. My recent training includes craniosacral therapy which I use in somato-emotional release work and counseling; prenatal support and pediatric care. I am certified to offer Therapeutic Touch, Reiki, Traeger, and Esalen Massage, Myofascial Release and CranioSacral Therapies. In 2005, I completed another Master of Arts Degree in Dance in Education, California State University- Long Beach. I am now completing my Diplomate in Craniosacral Therapy.

 Expressive Arts, Artistic Therapies and BRIAHWork Movement©

As a professional dancer, choreographer and teacher, I combine my therapeutic work as a Dance Medical Practioner  in therapeutic classes, individual coach sessions and rehabilitative services for dancers, dance companies, schools and conservatories and individual artists. 
With more than 40 years of professional experience as both a visual and movement artist, I bring a unique ‘eye’   to the technical training  and artistic development of dancers, visual artists and musicians. The arts weave gently in and through  my therapeutic modalities.  It is a joy and my deepest pleasure to blend in these arts arts and create ‘Embodied Awareness’©.

I have trained and danced with the Royal Ballet (London) and American Ballet Theatre, served as choreographer and director for companies across the US. I am certified in the ABT National Training Curriculum.
