"Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.” - Fred Rogers

More Information

I love my work(!) with infants and children. Through massage and Feldenkrais® neurological movement lessons, children learn easy ways to invent movements on their own. I also teach parents how to bond and play with their babies while helping them to learn. Lessons include specific use of massage, music and toys. I teach families individually and in groups.

With 30 years of experience in the field of body and mind therapies, my primary methods are listening, presence, gentle and precise touch and unconditional positive regard.
