I practice nonviolent communication (based on Dr. Marshall Rosenberg's work) with the Compassionate Communication Center of Ohio community and in my everyday life. I am passionate about connecting with clients and gaining their trust to ensure a positive experience that can help release an individual's tension. I also have a focus in acute pain, breast health, as well as grief and mourning.
I also enjoy singing, hiking, reading, and traveling.
