Hi! I'm Meredith and I've been working with clients in the field of holistic heath for over two decades. My practice has evolved over the years from doing massage and spa therapies in holistic wellness centers and spas to working in private practice with doctors, acupuncturists, chriopractors, and holistic health care providers supporting clients in a one on one therapy setting using craniosacral therapy, energy work, yoga, and spirit medicine. I have learned through the years that healing requires equal engagement with the mind, body, and spirit. It's all connected. The modalities that I specialize in are effective in treating the whole person.
From the beginning of my Healing Arts career I have always felt the call to support others in managing stress, finding calm, inner peace, and relaxation. This is what I am specialized in and passionate about. My experience as a Wellness Massage Therapist and my study in Psychology has been the foundation to understanding how stress affects the body. I have many tools to help my clients manage and come into greater understanding on how they can personally relieve stress from their body and life.
I have a deep reverence for soul, spirit, nature, and ancient wisdom and this is why I feel so connected to complementary and alternative medicine which honors the whole person, their inner wisdom, their own medicine, and all encompassing life experiences.
I'm passionate in supporting others to connect to their inner guidance to receive the messages and wisdom that is being expressed through the body and helping them change their relationship with stress and pain. The truth is the body has an amazing ability to heal itself in the right conditions. I help to facilitate understanding what those conditions might be through nervous system support and education.
We heal in relationship and this is a very important aspect of how I guide my sessions. I partner with my clients in collaboration and together we build pathways towards healing. My sessions offer an integrative and intuitive approach to working with the whole person towards greater health, wellbeing, peace, and healing.
My work is grounded in academics and study but also from my personal experience through my own journey. I am committed to my healing everyday so I can show up as a clear vessel to support my clients from. Healing myself is my way of being an activist to some of the issues we face on earth. I have felt called from a very young age to deepen my connection with earth and to become aligned with nature. This has changed over the many years, deepened, and evolved and this practice continues to show me how connected we collectively are. This work is intuitive and taught me so much about tending to soul and spirit. True healing happens from the inside out and the pain and chaos that we see on the planet can be healed from going inward. Much of my own healing work has become my teacher and training in working with others especially in relation to grief, change, transitions, and connecting to spirit. The study of Shamanism has connected me to my soul, Yoga and Somatics to my journey inward, CranioSacral Therapy has helped restore my nervous system, and reiki has been a profound source of support for my whole body, mind, spirit. All of these combined have supported me in building and strengthening my intuitive senses.
In my personal time I enjoy spending time with my family near and far, they are the best, and love being a mom to my two older daughters who are out doing amazing things in the world. Living a quiet and sweet life with my partner in the mountains of Colorado is where my heart is happy. I love cats and healing from the loss of my best cat friend. One day when the time is right I will be a cat mama again and I can't wait for that. I am passionate about so many things and blessed to be able to express them through my work and through nourishing my body and soul.

I am grateful for the many teachers and mentors who have shared their wisdom and knowledge with me. They all helped pave my path in the healing arts.
