Christie is a masterful and compassionate teacher
of Buddhist practice. She intertwines many layers
of understanding of the ways our psyches and lives work into her teaching in such an insightful and helpful way. ~ Catherine R
I know Christie through mutual clients and friends. She is a compassionate listener. As a trauma- informed massage therapist myself, (I find that) she
is mindful and respectful of the role of our bodies in therapeutic processes. Christie truly understands how trauma lodges itself deeply within our bodies
and affects our whole being-body, mind and spirit.
