I was among the early graduates to become registered as a massage therapist in the Province of Ontario when the profession became regulated in the 1990s. I have enjoyed a lengthy 21-year career and still feel inspired by the impact massage therapy can have on wellness.
My practice is diverse, and I have gained valuable experience over the years treating clients with serious conditions like neurological disorders, life-threatening illnesses, chronic pain, mental health issues, and more common concerns like stress and pain relief.
My approach incorporates various types of massage to tailor the appropriate treatment to each client. My chosen techniques may include deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and soothing, gentle massage.

Interfacing with insurance companies to complete a treatment plan is not for everyone, but I enjoy the structure of that work. Frequently, my clients are seeking treatment for injuries sustained in a car accident or a workplace accident. Above all, I love working with Veteran Affairs and our local Military personnel.
Daily, I work with veterans dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Operational Stress Injury (OSI). Anytime someone can overcome the barriers to treatment that mental health concerns create, that is a huge success. I have empathy for people suffering in this way, and I know that their pain is real.
Connecting with people and helping to improve their physical and emotional wellbeing is what makes massage therapy much more than a job…for me, it is a vocation.
