When folks ask me to describe KMI I often respond that my focus is always in the service of “making more space for you to grow into.” That growth may be experienced as more flexibility, ease of movement, a greater bodily awareness, a higher energy level, improved performance, better posture or simply less pain. I am committed to helping my clients move toward a fuller and healthier experience and expression of themselves.
Structural integration was central to my recovery from long term chronic lower back pain. My experience was so profound that I left my corporate life in the book printing and publishing industry to go back to massage therapy school with the intention of sharing this great blessing of structural integration with others. I completed the KMI certification program in 2005 and practiced in Chicago until 2012 when I took a year sabbatical to live and travel in Mexico. Relocating to the east coast after my return, I have set up practices in NYC and Guilford, Connecticut.
My practice has been informed by teaching connective tissue massage, assistant teaching Anatomy Trains workshops, and additional trainings with Ed Maupin (Expansional Balance), Liz Gaggini (Biomechanics of Alignment), Bruce Schonfeld and Jon Martine (Visceral and Neural Mobilization), Lael Katharine Keen (Trauma), Mary Bond (Breathing and Walking) and Craniosacral Therapy (Upledger). With my recent relocation to coastal Connecticut you’ll likely find me exploring the aquatic nooks and crannies of the Long Island southshore in my kayak or scheming to catch my first bluefish.
