I aspire to engage large groups and corporations in holistic health, wellness, and spirituality workshops to have a transformative impact on diverse populations. A dedicated Tantra practitioner for over ten years, I am currently researching content for my book, “The Tantra of Food” and will help craft an individualized nutrition program suited to your specific needs.

My advanced C.H.E.K (Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology) certifications demonstrate my commitment to healthy posture and body alignment as foundational components to any exercise and wellness program. I specialize in spinal pathology, orthopedic injury rehabilitation, chronic pain, and correcting structural imbalance and collaborate with doctors and healthcare professionals to ensure your body is functioning optimally and pain free.

In a single session, we might move from a focused, movement-based workout into therapeutic and rehabilitative massage to relieve a stressed muscle or joint. Similarly, we might identify and generate solutions for mental blockages, such as negative thoughts around body image. Holding both positive thinking and fitness goals concurrently allows us to realize potential and supersede expectations. I pride myself on this rapport and versatility and cherish my ability to respond and adapt to myriad circumstances.

Together, we will co-create the remarkable body and life you are looking for. Whether your goal is to build strength, lose weight, improve performance, or exercise without pain – I’m here for you. My excitement and passion arise from a deep love of helping people engage their bodies through holistic exercise and conscious movement, while compassionately and cooperatively working through challenges and fears.

I look forward to partnering with you.



I am driven by the relationships I cultivate with each of my clients and am honored to create space where they can unwind and realign at Ascend Body.

I inadvertently discovered the power of alternative medicine following a successful acupuncture treatment after pursuing Western medicine to no avail. With acupuncture, my pain largely dissipated and for the first time, I felt I was an integral component in my own care.

After moving to the Bay Area, I followed this therapeutic calling to support people as they navigate and grow through physical and emotional pain. I received Foundational Bodywork certifications from the Acupressure Institute and The Fair Oaks Massage Institute.

During my continuing education, I have had the privilege of studying with talented teachers. The most long-standing and influential mentorships have been with Lori Del Mar (Body/Energy Worker) and Jay Craver (S.I.). My personal style is a fusion of Acupressure, Shiatsu, Lomilomi, Deep Tissue, and Energy Work. My background in personal training enhances my focus on sports-related injuries and highlights my repertoire of assessment techniques.

I often liken massage and energy work to peeling an onion. With each session, we examine and explore deeper causality, release blockages, and re-pattern the energy system. I enjoy watching people grow lighter and experience more physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom. Bodywork is an individual process and I am able to adjust my approach and application depending on your personal needs.

A life-long athlete, weight lifter, and yoga practitioner, I believe Bodywork and acupressure are beneficial both as preventative medicine and as potent tools for allowing the body to heal from disease and stress. The body holds so much and massage and bodywork are amazing tools to help you release and realign.

I welcome the opportunity to work with you.


Energy Medicine

Physics shows us that at a fundamental level everything is energy.

Our bodies, too, are defined by energetic templates and patterns. When we experience pain or disease, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual, we are holding disharmonious energetic patterns in the body that need to be freed for us to truly thrive. This is what we refer to when we say we feel “blocked”.

Energy medicine flips the light switch back on. It sends current where it was blocked and allows your body to utilize energy in a way that is healthy and productive. This energetic realignment releases disharmonious patterns and balances energy centers (chakras) in the body.

By reigniting and reweaving these patterns, the body’s energetic potential begins to flow and access expanded life experience and evolution, which were not previously available.

Rebooting the body’s energetic template allows you to access higher potential, cultivate productive resources of development, and lead a more vibrant, healthful, and happy life.
