I am a Maryland-licensed massage therapist (LMT), certified practitioner of Integrative Reflexology(R), and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT(R)200). My training includes over 100 hours of study and practice in trauma-informed care within and beyond the bodywork field. My previous work as an immigration legal assistant inspired a passion for working with survivors of gender-based and domestic violence to re-integrate touch as a safe, nurturing, and empowering experience. I am fluent in English (native) and Spanish.
I employ a gentle, slow approach to bodywork therapy, which is recommendable for treating persons suffering from stress-related tension and chronic pain. Gentle bodywork practices, including yoga, massage, and other techniques, are becoming recognized as effective treatment options for PTSD and other stress-related pathologies. I operate with the highest standards of ethical behavior to create a safe space for people of all backgrounds and genders. Regarding accessibility, sliding scale fees, and trauma care, I have a strict no-questions-asked policy; though I hope you will find my practice a safe place to share any needs or concerns you might have.
