I believe that everyone deserves to feel cared for, seen and respected as a whole person, and that consent and honest open communication are the foundation to making that possible. I have been an avid student and practitioner of communication and consent for over 12 years in my work and personal life.
I draw from my background in massage therapy, sex education, my master’s degree in Integrative Health and Wellness Coaching from the California Institute of Integral Studies, and my Cuddlist certification, to provide quality care in all aspects of my work. I am a certified Cuddle Party facilitator and am training to be a Wheel of Consent facilitator. I offer these workshops in Western Massachusetts.
Living with a chronic illness for over 15 years also informs my work and drives me to give back to people in the disability and chronic illness communities that have given me so much. I am honored to be able to share what I’ve learned, and continue to learn; and to support individuals and groups to improve the quality of their lives and relationships through communication, consent, and touch.
