About My coaching
I identify as an Empowered Empath. I specialize in assisting people who identify as Empath or Highly Sensitive and who are seeking to also be empowered. I also mentor those seeking guidance at the beginning of their spiritual journey. I help connect people to their full mind body and soul through body + energy work sessions, meditative journey's, tarot, and more. I am a self care advocate, it took me 3 years to understand what I need to fully be my best self, it is not always perfect, but I have a foundation for it now. I still develop what self-care works best for me as life is a constant change :). Many of my clients are empaths, have experienced some form of trauma or neglect as a child, are seeking deeper meaning or to change habits in their life, have or had chronic pain/anxiety/depression, and/or are developing or just learning about their "abilities" outside the 5 senses (ie clairvoyance).

I was born and raised in Northern Bay Area. After enduring a volleyball career ending injury in 2007, I was diagnosed with Chronic Pain and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. The only form of therapy that brought me relief was massage. I grew to have an intuitive feel for massage therapy. I learned to assist my therapists healing touch by using my breath and mind. This practice is known as focusing your breath or following your breath to where the therapist is working. During trigger point, or tough knotted spots, this method is key to help quicken the healing process.
After working a desk job for 2 years and experiencing constant pain, which resulted in a need to take consistent days off each month, I knew I had to make a career change. Following the departure of a company I had been with for 5 years and grew to love, Playworks Northern California, I experienced a pain free week for the first time in 10 plus years. This pain free week was the result of me putting the time in to care for myself which in turn decreased my stress. Stress in my body is the main culprit of my pain episodes. During this time I discovered how manual massage was one of my main go to self care techniques. I had always enjoyed helping friends find pain relief by massaging them, but thought my Chronic Pain would prevent me from having a career in massage therapy.
After taking the leap and enrolling in National Holistic School of Massage Therapy, I have had consistent pain free weeks and have found that being a massage therapist actually helps my chronic pain more than I could have imagined!
As of January 2019, I am a life and spiritual coach, Reiki and massage practitioner, as well as a facilitator of safe community space. I help my clients in finding peace for their mind, love for their body, and strength for their soul so that they may flow in life as their divine authentic self.
It is a purpose of mine to bring community together. I love to bring out the best in those around me and there is no better way to do that than to bring people together! I now facilitate a variety of safe community circles in Downtown Oakland! Check my events for more info!
