I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher, Gong Master, Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and Yoga Teacher in Virginia Beach and have a private practice focused on Women’s Holistic Healing and Wellness. I love to help women connect to themselves on a deep womb level and find healing through all stages of life from menarche to post menopause. I especially love prenatal and postnatal massage, yoga and care. I am an Arvigo® Maya Abdominal Massage Practitioner and Teacher supporting reproductive, lymphatic and digestive health. I am a Certified Holistic Doula and an Innate Postpartum Traditions Practitioner supporting women through education and bodywork and closing ceremonies as a full spectrum doula. I trained with Tami Lynn Kent in Holistic Pelvic Care and Certified with Leslie Howard in Yoga for Pelvic Floor and am currently studying in LA with Ellen Heed and Kimberly Ann Johnson as a STREAM (Scar Tissue Remediation, Education and Management) Practitioner. I studied with Gurmukh in Khalsa Way Pre and Postnatal Yoga and Sarah Stover in SHE Yoga, Yin and Buddhist Meditation.
In 2012 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and my health took a toll. Yoga and nutrition were my saving grace and in 2014 I pursued my YTT in Hatha yoga and Ayurveda at 7 Centers in Sedona, Az. There I fell in love with chanting and the enchanting vibrations of the Gong. I followed the vibrations to Tempe, Az to study with Duane Armitage in Hatha Gong and Gong Healing to become a Gong Master. Since then I have added 6 large Gongs and quartz crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, ceramic bowls, rattles, chimes and drums to my growing collection of sound healing instruments. I love facilitating Yoga Nidra and Sound Healing Journeys along with meditation and breathwork.
I love traveling and getting immersed in other cultures, being outdoors and moving whether walking or Pilates, yoga, boxing, dancing, being in the sea, or being on my paddleboard with my dogs. I live in Va Beach on the Lynnhaven River and have a Hokie son and an adult daughter who is a reiki master and yoga teacher in training.
You can find out about my Gong events on the Facebook group, Gong and Vibrational Healing Meditations. I am available for private sessions in bodywork and sound healing.
