Because Change Is Possible


Lift Them Up. Hold the Space.

These six words came to me in the silence as I was trying to name a sense of center to my life and work. As a long-time nonprofit administrator AND a long time bodyworker (massage and yoga therapies) AND as a seminary-trained spiritual director and religious educator, I have spent a lot of time seeking the connecting thread. Then, there it was, so simply put.

Lift them Up. Hold the Space.

So this is what I do.

I lift up questions. In my care of individuals and organizations, I listen deeply and offer questions that invite my clients to see or consider a new thing, or an old thing in a different way. Sometimes this is part of the prepared content. Other times, it's what arises in our process.

I hold space. In my treatment office, for herbal consultations, massage and bodywork, I hold time set apart for self-care and deep listening to the bodies I work with.

I also hold space for groups. I lead workshops and retreats, strategic planning processes, brainstorming sessions, training for volunteers and for those who manage volunteers. Some of these groups are a group of individuals coming together to learn a thing; sometimes these groups are already together and just need an outsider perspective or fresh input. My areas of nonprofit consulting focus include: mission/vision, fundraising, public relations, strategic planning, board development, and volunteer management.

So, how can I help?

Bodywork, Herbal Support & Spiritual Direction

In my office in West Tisbury, MA, I see clients for massage, private yoga sessions, herbal consultations, and spiritual direction (SD and Herbal Consultations are also available by videoconference). To book a session, click here. For more details on my experience, click here.


I offer programs by request and on a schedule. At present, my focus includes: private retreats for people in transition, practices for accessing your body's wisdom, and family/community herbalism. Other topics by request include: dreamwork, couples massage, and CEUs for yoga teachers (YA) and yoga therapists (C-IAYT).

NonProfit Consulting

I have a passion for helping small nonprofits with big hearts (and modest budgets) work smarter, write better, raise more money, and shine their light far and wide. I have more than 25 years experience helping  non-profits as employee, consultant, and board member. To read a bit about this work, click here.
