I consider it a privilege to be present with you and facilitate your process toward health, healing, and well-being.

I've helped people experience more relaxed and pain free lives through therapeutic massage for over 24 years. Facilitating the integration of deep seated stress and trauma patterns with somatic therapy became my passion since 2019. A native of Germany and graduate of the Esalen Institute massage program (Big Sur, California), I practiced massage therapy and energy work for 14 years in Bloomington, Indiana before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2014. I am a licensed massage therapist in Washington State, a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP) and certified in Transforming Touch® (TEB).

I use touch-based Somatic Experiencing® (SE) and Transforming Touch® (TEB) to help you shift what has been “stuck” in your body for too long. I support your nervous system in recovering, repairing, and regrouping from trauma – thereby allowing a greater sense of ease, vitality and choice in life.

I’m certified in leading practice groups in Transparent Communication, developed by Thomas Hübl, PhD, and find it deeply healing to connect to others with attunement and presence.

In my free time you’ll find me sailing and kayaking around the Salish Sea, doing nature photography/videography, snow shoeing and hiking in the Cascades, and traveling on extended road trips to nature’s treasures. Most especially, I enjoy spending time with my two children.
