“I had been suffering for days from what appeared to be a painful ankle sprain. Margaret was offering her services during a local tennis tournament so I decided to visit with her to see if she could help relieve some of the pain so I could participate in the tournament. Smart decision on my part. During the 10 or 15 minutes I spent with her she worked her magic on my ankle in a very gentle (no pain) and soothing manner. After this brief session my ankle was 90% better and almost pain free immediately. I was not only pleased and wowed by the results I was equally impressed by her knowledge and experience. I was able to not only participate in the tournament but win it. True story.”
During my career as a physical therapist, I have observed the effects of stress and other emotional factors on physical and mental health. This had led to a personal study of psychology, trauma, relaxation training, mindfulness and other methods for addressing emotional effects of pain and stress.
I practice from a holistic approach, and believe in the body’s inherent ability to heal, and to find its way back to balance and resilience. Integrating mind, body and spirit is essential to overall health and well-being. I have seen the benefits of craniosacral therapy not only for physical pain but also for mood regulation, including relief of anxiety and depression, and improved sleep.
Because of this cIose connection between mind and body I am currently completing a Masters’ degree in Marriage & Family Therapy at Regis University (graduation anticipated in May 2020). I will be continuing my therapeutic training with a 3-year training in Somatic Experiencing, which is a body-centered approach to trauma.
