About Me

If you are looking for a professional therapeutic Missouri State Licensed Massage Therapist who has a certification as a Massage Therapy Practitioner, you have come to the right place. 

I am a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).  I am trained in a variety of modalities, from light relaxation massage to deep tissue therapeutic massage.  

As the small business owner and operator of Change of Life, LLC, I  can travel ("outcall") with my portable massage table or portable massage chair to your home, office, workplace, corporate event, athletic event, other event, a reputable hotel room in the KC Northland in Clay or Platte Counties or by the KCI airport, or other arranged meeting space anywhere in the Kansas City Northland.   

As a self-employed independent contractor, I have contracted for other local and national companies since 10/17, such as Back & Body Works Massage I in Gladstone, Back and Body Works Massage II in Picture Hills,  Chateau Avalon, Spalation, Zeel Massage on Demand, SpaFlow, and have in the past provided massage therapy services for the residents of Savannah West Luxury Apartments in the clubhouse, where I also saw my own clients.  

Up until 3/1/19, I also provided Clinical Social Work, Mental Health Therapy, and Substance Abuse Counseling.  I have been in the helping field for over 26 years, and specialized in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Women with Depression and Anxiety. 

I still provide Life Coaching and Emotional Wellness Coaching services, in addition to Licensed Massage Therapy services.
