    About

    I am a healer at heart, and have come to find the most effective way to heal and free another is to teach the individual to learn how to access the innate healing qualities that exist within their own body.

    I grew up on the beaches just north of Sydney. As a teen and into my early 20s I was a competitive athlete, it was during this time when I first discovered the benefits of meditation and performance visualization. Fresh out of college I fell into a dream job a the local TV station where I was exposed to responsibilities beyond my years of work experience.  As a seeker of new things, I switched out of the news room and into the Sydney advertising industry where I worked my way up to become a Senior Executive. Much later, I would combine my production roots with my executive skills to help an Australian based production company establish themselves in the U.S. market. 

    In 2004, alongside of my corporate career described above, I began teaching meditation to small groups and individuals, while my clients were in this meditative and quite state I was able to attune to the needs of their bodies - it was at this point that I began intuitively working with bodies to bring about improved health or change in clients' lives.  After some time, I realized I needed to further develop a framework to protect myself in the process. Since then, I have traveled the world and studied different bodywork methodologies and meditation practices, and continue to follow my truest desire to seek out knowledge and experiences that I can bring to my working room to empower others.

    I've lived abroad for over a decade, and most recently we moved from Los Angeles to Amsterdam with my husband and our incredible teenagers.  I offer one-on-one sessions from a beautiful  practice on the Amstel and once a year I offer sessions in Sydney, Byron Bay, and  Los Angeles.  I am currently looking at ways in which I can share the benefits of my work within a group format, and am currently developing content for schools and workplaces.
     

    Philosophy

    My approach is reflective of my life-long love and interest in mind-body healing practices, and experience from working with hundreds of clients from different cultures and backgrounds around the globe.

    I teach clients how to access their natural and innate body wisdom that will enable their instinct, emotions, and intellect to work together to create the widest range of options and personal freedom in any situation they find themselves.

    Simply put, my intention for any teaching is for one to freely have a closer relationship with themselves.
