Dawn has pursued an interest in healing arts since the early 2000s. She began her study and practice of Craniosacral Therapy in 2014. Her ongoing practices of yoga, Tai Chi, and Qi Gong inform and support her Craniosacral work. Her main teachers and influences for healing work are Heather Islander (Craniosacral Therapist) and Haley Lee (Intuitive and Healer.)
Before focusing on Craniosacral Therapy, Dawn taught yoga and worked with clients using a form of yoga-based therapy through the Samarya Center. Through different forms of healing work, Dawn has worked with a range of people of varying physical and mental abilities and situations, including many experiencing chronic pain and terminal illness. She holds an MS in Psychology.
