I have been a therapeutic bodyworker for over 26 years. I am licensed in Oregon (#3150) and Washington (#MA4670). I specialize in Craniosacral Therapy for pregnant and new mothers, infants and children. I am proud to have pioneered the integration of this gentle manual therapy into prenatal care, the birth place and postpartum care for moms and babies.
Craniosacral Therapy Training for Health Professionals
I teach high-quality, small group classes that are appropriate for bodyworkers, birth attendants and other health professionals. I am approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education approved provider.
MamaSpace Yoga® is all about Making Room for Babies® in mama bodies. When babies have room to move they assume more ideal positions for birth. This unique prenatal yoga style enhances and supports the bodywork I have developed for expectant mamas.
The first ever Infant & Maternal CST Conference took place in 2012. We did it again (even better) in 2014. Stay tuned for details about future conferences.
My students, my colleagues and I offer free CST treatments for infants plus pregnant and postpartum mamas in Portland Oregon once a month.
I have dedicated my professional life to supporting expectant and new families by promoting gentle aware birth. I have attended births for over 35 years – at first as a doula and from 2000 to 2012 as a midwife. I have since retired from attending births in order to focus on practicing and teaching CST and prenatal yoga. My many years as a birth worker have forever changed me and my worldview. Those experiences remain an integral part of who I am as a therapist and teacher.
