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 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 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 in Portland Oregon once a month. We also offer free pregnancy and postpartum CST treatments a few times a year.
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. 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.
