Always active in sports and naturally athletic, something had never felt right in my body. It culminated in an unexplainable injury after college in which my body just seized up. I went to a Rolfer in Missoula, Montana and was intrigued. It helped me, but I still just felt horrible in my body. Someone told me I had to do internal energy work to really work out the issues. Always interested in Buddhism, I found a Zen monastery on Whidbey Island. At some point the Roshi (Zen Master) came from Japan to lead a retreat. Here was someone who would help me to do my internal energy work.
I went with him to Sogenji monastery, in Okayama, Japan, and stayed several years. There, I not only healed from the inside out, but my perception of reality completely shifted. I came back looking for a medium to express this healing and way of being, and finally found Structural Integration® . I chose this because it is a very real way to help people reconnect with themselves. I bring my unique energetic approach to this work which involves deep communication.
I am currently located in Langley, Washington with my wife and three daughters. I teach a meditation class and work with individual clients doing Structural Integration and Craniosacral work and other energetic explorations. My goal is to share a bit of the freedom I found on my path.
I am available for workshops. Please email me for information.

Thanks and Enjoy!
