Over twenty years ago I discovered the elegance and effectiveness of CranioSacral Therapy and other gentle bodywork modalities. My first clients were pre and post mastectomy clients. Many hours were shared as we worked to soften and release areas congested with scar tissue, other injuries and the emotional traumas that come with such events. I laughed and cried with many brave women. They taught me courage and that nothing is impossible. I also learned that scar tissue, no matter how thick or old, can become malleable.
In the ten years I was in private practice in Downtown Chicago many folks found their way to my door, from the elderly to the newborn and everyone between. So much healing with so many wonderful people. Clients began to ask if I would work with their pets as well. Over and over, I saw how gentle touch therapies can restore health. Dr. John E. Upledger, the creator of CranioSacral Therapy, began to refer clients to me.
Eventually, Dr. John Upledger asked me to move from Chicago and join his staff at the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. During the following decade it was my honor to be a part of his hand-picked team in his beloved Intensive Programs and the Upledger Institute Clinic. Clients came from around the world. We treated a wide spectrum of health challenges from rare disorders, traumatic injuries (including brain and spinal cord injuries), the stress related disorders including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, pain and, yes, the healthy individuals who valued their health enough to receive regular "tune-ups". It was an extraordinary time.
Now in private practice I look forward to sharing with you the gifts, lessons and expertise shared so generously by my mentors and the individuals who have come before you. It is my honor and delight to be of service to you. Welcome.
