I love helping people and I love a challenge! Experience has taught me that by therapeutically listening to my patients, the craft of Massage Therapy profoundly aids in the relief of physical, emotional and spiritual tension and fosters consciousness of the self.  I have developed this holistic philosophy of treatment by combining the dual diversities of my professional training.   There are many tools in my therapeutic toolbox that can be uniquely applied to your specific condition. With your expressed consent, it’s my pleasure to be in touch with other members of your self-care team to contribute to the big picture of your health journey.  Together, we can form an alliance for your well-being!

I have enthusiastically been practicing as a Registered Massage Therapist in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario since 2000. Upon completion of my Massage Therapy diploma from Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic, I was inspired to immerse myself in both the rehabilitation and spa treatment settings as to better understand and experience the myriad approaches available to heal clients. I am also a musician. I hold a Bachelor of Musical Arts in Performance from The University of Western Ontario and an Artist Diploma in Orchestral Training in French Horn from The Royal Conservatory of Music.

Lifelong learning is the cornerstone of my personal and professional vitality.  My holistic treatment philosophy has evolved through a broad collection of post-graduate courses including: Neural Dynamics and Pain Management; Cranial Sacral; Muscle Energy; Fascia Release using NISA; Injury Prevention and Intervention for Musicians and Performing Artists; Evidence based Medical Acupuncture; Aromatherapy; Introduction to Qi-Gong; The Physiology of Moksha Yoga Postures; Landmark Education; Compassion Fatigue Prevention; Cannabis Guidelines and Consideration for Manual Therapy Practice; RMT Business Seminar and Ukulele 101.

Giving back to the community that supports and inspires me is an integral part of my commitment to continued education. My special interest lies in injury prevention. Over the years, I had the privilege to present workshops and courses to a wide variety of groups, in particular with the student musicians and faculty at The Royal Conservatory of Music and The University of Toronto.

When I’m not massaging clients or making music, I love to practice yoga, go camping and watch rugby with me Irish Lad!
