I have been a massage therapist since 2010 when I graduated from the Cortiva Massage Institute in Watertown. I spent the majority of my early career working at a busy down town Boston gym where my focus was Sports Massage and orthopedic massage. There I helped people improve function, heal injuries (or better yet prevent injury) and combine massage with proper diet and exercise to support clients in creating healthier lifestyles. In addition to massage, my work there included Fitness Nutrition, personal training, stretching, and an exercise class called Punk Rope, a mash-up of jump rope and creative conditioning set to rock ‘n’ roll music.
In 2012 I transitioned my love of the body, healing, and exercise to work with children in a residential treatment program for Deaf children with trauma. This work led me on a path to earn my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Framingham State University in 2018. I currently work at a local Youth and Family as a One-on-One therapist as well as a member of the Crisis Team.
Due to my passion for the Body/Mind connection, I am excited to return to massage therapy: now to support healing in an even more holistic, full-person centered way. I am excited and proud to work as a member of The Gentle Place team.
I am fluent in American Sign Language and enjoy reading, outdoor recreation, volunteering with local organizations, making art, photography and spending time with my wife and our small menagerie of rescued animals.
