I feel very lucky to have found her!!" B.M.

After a weekend of fear I did a phone session with Athena and the IST allowed me to come back to my body and become grounded, centered, find flow in such uncertain times. Game changer. " A.G.


“I came to Athena pre-surgery for an abdominal mass. Our work together continued through my surgery, recovery, and deepened as we explored connections with past traumas. I am so thankful to have found Athena; our work together has taken me on a journey of healing, self-care, and growing my practice of mindfulness, kindness and compassion. I am happier and healthier than I have ever been in 39 years of life! I cannot recommend seeing Athena enough, whether a physical ailment or something more." J.C


"I have been a client of Athena's for many years and have always appreciated her skillful touch in body work. I have recently begun doing IST with her; it is a stunning process--profound, cathartic, leading me to places and feelings that I have rarely been able to access in talk therapy. I cannot overstate Athena's gifts as a healer and guide. I never know what will surface, but each session has led to more profound insights. I've finally found a way to open the tight carapace around my heart." L.S.


"Athena shares her gifts, experience, intuition and ability to connect even in the virtual world. I was not sure how the session would go. She helped me identify and articulate physical and emotional tensions. Her skillful, patient guidance led me to a deep and necessary clarity, grounding and relaxation. She helped resuscitate hope on both deep and practical levels. I am glowing with calm awe, appreciation and tools to improve the quality of my daily life."W.B.


“Athena is intuitive and caring beyond belief. She connects with every feeling that comes up for me during a session, be it physical or emotional, with profound skill.

I am stunned at how much looser and more open my body is after only a few sessions. I'm in awe. It's such a gift. Athena has redefined my understanding of healing and wellness." A.O.


"2 years ago, I was hit by a car and it led to regular panic attacks when I crossed the street. Traditional therapy wasn't helpful for me. After one session with Athena, the panic attacks stopped, and it's been over a month since my first session! My second session was centered around releasing childhood trauma, and the energy in my body literally feels different. I've tried different types of bodywork, and this was the most tangible experience I've had. " C.H.


"I came to Athena with tennis elbow and immense frustration. I had been to many traditional and non-traditional therapies with no results over the course of a year. From the very first session I had with Athena, I felt a transformation with my elbow, as well as with many of my minor ailments. As an acrobatic dancer, Athena has been crucial for my physical and mental well being. I no longer suffer from any of my nagging injuries and my body has developed new awareness and fluidity from my time with Athena. I've recommended Athena to all the people in my life as she is a gifted healer and a crucial part of my life." D.P.

"As an acupuncturist and bodyworker, I am extremely selective about my care. Athena has a magical combination of skill and heart. Her touch is insightful and whole-person centered. I recommended her work enthusiastically!" J.L.


“Beyond my beliefs. Life door to peace. Athena is a beautiful gift given to me unexpectedly. Looking forward to see more of this amazing reality and truth in my life that her soul is bringing to me. " C.M.
