I used to work as a computer professional, and practiced massage as a side hobby. It didn’t take long to realize that bodywork provided a visceral, immediate joy – the satisfaction of helping another human being - that I never experienced while staring at a screen. So I swapped my hobby with my career, went back to school to become a licensed massage therapist, and found that my methodical, scientific, detail-oriented approach to my work served me just as well as a massage therapist. What’s more, I can now also apply a warmth and kindness to my work that computers just don’t appreciate!
I identify as genderqueer and neuroatypical, and I am committed as a therapist to support clients who, like me, have an unusual relationship to touch or to their own bodies.
