I am an advanced Myofascial Release Therapist and Lymph-edema Specialist, along with having a specialty certification for Children's Yoga and Heart Centered Therapy. As an occupational therapist my training has provided a medical background for physical and psychological conditions; with the main focus of assisting my patients to returning to their highest level of independence in all area of their lives. Treatment has always focused on the priorities and needs of each person. My goal is to empower you to heal what is hurting and out of balance in your life. To combine my knowledge and skills with your knowledge and inner wisdom to reach your healing goals.
In striving to achieve that beautiful balance of health and well being I enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors whether in the mountains, desert or ocean. Perhaps our paths will meet while hiking, snow shoeing, camping, or just simple star gazing.

"Dawn-Marie has an amazing ability to be attuned to what is happening with you in your body and emotionally. I always felt remarkably safe working with her and noticed benefits in my posture, and overall chronic pain almost immediately. I was having headaches up to 3-4 times a week, and noticed an immediate decrease in this. I've also been more aware of how i carry, my emotions in my body and how to approach this in a compassionate and healing way. I've enjoyed working with her, and learning how to be more attuned to my own body. I highly recommend Healing Hearts Together."
