Counseling

Reconnect you mind and body so that you can live your life in current time and keep the past in the past. I strive to give you a supportive environment with compassion and empathy so that you feel able to do this hard work. This is your journey, that I will walk beside you in. It is my goal to make you feel like the expert on your path, but I will help to point out new ways to see things or things you might not have noticed. Walking through the doors of therapy is hard, I will help you gain an understanding of your emotions and help ground you while you work through your wounds.

Certified Advanced Rolfer

After years of athletics—gymnastics, two marathons, acrobatics, dancing, lacrosse, fencing and music—I began to notice pain in my body. I found myself wanting a more balanced and individual approach to body development and awareness, in this search I found Rolfling.


When the body is out of structural balance, movement is harder and often causes excessive wear and pain. Through Rolfing® I felt as though the forces of gravity were on my side. Instead of working against my body, everyday movements became easier and pain-free. As my body slowly changed (and continues to change), my ideas about health, healing and personal growth have been transformed.

Certified Advanced Rolfer

I grew up in the suburbs of Paris, France. I left in my early 20’s because I couldn’t breathe there anymore. I moved to the Alps to live a dream of mountaineering, climbing, skiing and hiking in nature. When I moved back to a big city (Seattle) for love, it was hard to acclimate. Then I found Rolfing. Rolfing helped me heal from a climbing injury (rotator cuff), and helped me find my balance in a new world and away from my mountains. Realigning my body allowed the crushed tendon to finally heal and it ‘realigned’ my thoughts and emotions. It also answered my question of “How can I alleviate suffering in the world?”   Well, one body at a time.
