"I started my career as an international health professional working in maternal and child health in Africa in 1989. My passion for supporting mothers, babies and families took me to many parts of the developing world as a contractor for USAID, and then back to the US where I chose to become a bodyworker to support mothers and babies with massage therapy, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, and a range of skills associated with somatic perinatal therapies. My many years as a somatic therapist have honed my hands so that I offer intelligent bodywork in my Studio in Belvedere. The years of holding people gives a professional like myself deep layers of knowledge and experience. I add to my decades of practice years of study the nervous system, trauma, and healing. Please see my lists of training, workshops and certifications for a comprehensive look at my expertise. I feel confident I can meet you where you are when you come to see me. "
