He is especially interested in body-oriented trauma resolution, supporting those that are processing trauma by providing a gentle and safe avenue to release shock from the body and regulate the nervous system. Most of all, he loves supporting others, including babies and children, to connect to the innate health in their system, no matter the ailment.

He is available for adult individual session, mother and baby/children sessions, and the treatment is always tailored for the patient’s needs.
