Professional Life Coach
Nearly two decades before becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist, I received my first professional massage. I arrived with pain and numbness in my arm and shoulder that had perplexed doctors and ended my career a year earlier. The morning after the massage session, I woke up with unexpected relief! Through the years of watching my children grow, I thought about that massage and the difference that it made in my life. Inspired by that experience and a deep desire to help others with their stress and pain, I began my education in massage therapy. I graduated from the 1000 Hour Extended Professional Massage Therapy Program at Cortiva Institute in Tucson in November of 2014.
I began my massage career working at an award-winning spa in Tucson before starting my private practice , Path to Peace Massage, in October of 2016. Through client referrals my schedule began to fill quickly. Many of my current clients have been seeing me for customized sessions for years.
Building my private practice and hearing from many of my massage clients about their stress and constant worry inspired me to pursue a certificate in Mindfulness and Guided Imagery from the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA) in March of 2018. Introducing clients in specialized sessions to simple mindfulness practices and using guided imagery (also known as guided meditation or visualization) proved to be productive, but I had a desire for more education to help my clients live their best lives. I wanted to support them in achieving their goals, overcoming obstacles, increasing joy and enhancing their quality of life. I returned to a program at SWIHA that aligned with my belief that there is a deep knowing within each of us about what is best for us. I became a Professional Life Coach in February 2021. It is my desire to help clients recognize that knowing and, with the use of potent questions and tools, to help them move forward in life from where they are now to where they want to be.
Now as Path to Peace Wellness, my private practice is a community of clients that value self-care and see the importance of the mind and body connection. Honoring body positivity and individually, Path to Peace Wellness is a place to feel supported as you honor your own mind and body wellness.
I love to spend time outdoors, especially near water. I enjoy hiking and tandem kayaking with my wife, Jen, supporting local businesses and lingering over meals with my 2 adult children, Emma and Jake. I am passionate about authenticity, celebrating my friends and being kind.
