CranioSacral Therapy in Oakland, CA!
In my private practice in Rockridge in Oakland I use a combination of modalities to help clients resolve the physical, emotional and spiritual blocks that prevent them from feeling fully alive and healthy. CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release are the foundation of my work, but my sessions also include Visceral Manipulation, energy work, grounding, guided imagery, and dialoguing with the body. I also bring my background in childhood development and Occupational Therapy to treat kids and educate parents.
I believe that your body has all the wisdom it needs to heal itself. My role is to listen to your body and guide you to your own information. You will learn to work with your own symbols and imagery and take home tools that you can use in your every day life to maintain health and promote healing. Through our work together, you will experience freedom from the discomfort and pain that brought you here, and feel more empowered around your own healing and more connected to your amazingly wise body.
Come ready to take an active, curious, collaborative role in our work together!

What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy uses a gentle touch to evaluate and release restrictions in the soft tissues. Once the tissue is released, the body doesn’t have to spend the extra energy to work around the restricted area and you will feel much better. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well being.
As a skilled CranioSacral practitioner, I listen with my hands to the subtle rhythms of the body, detecting restrictions and imbalances held in its various systems, especially the nerves, tissues and fluids. As shifts and changes happen in your body, I will ask you questions to guide the process and connect you with your body’s inner wisdom. CST facilitates healing in the physical body and also supports the gentle release of unprocessed emotion and trauma.
What is Holistic Pelvic Care?
Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a gentle and effective way to physically, emotionally and energetically support and restore balance in the pelvis. A woman’s pelvis is the powerhouse of her creativity and her energetic center. In modern times we have lost the understanding that the pelvic bowl houses a deep wisdom and intelligence, and that it can be a place of resource to help a woman re-balance herself. Just as other muscles in the body become tightened, stressed and imbalanced whenever they are strained, overworked, or traumatized, so too can the internal muscles of the pelvic bowl become imbalanced from illness, stress, or trauma. This work holistically addresses postpartum symptoms, birth trauma, pelvic pain, urinary leakage or incontinence, fertility, pregnancy loss, sexual, physical, or emotional abuse history, and sexual health.
