"Be a student as long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life." -Henry L. Doherty
I am happy to offer continuing education classes for massage therapists that meet the four-hour ethics, communication, and boundaries requirement for Oregon and Washington.
All CE classes are located in Portland, OR.
My intention is to create opportunities for massage therapists to meet this requirement in a meaningful way.
current CE offerings
the ethics of client-centered presence
Client-centered presence is an essential component of the therapeutic relationship, an ethical responsibility, and a commitment we make to our clients. However, at times our human bodies and minds can make this challenging to achieve or sustain. In this class, we will discuss what client-centered presence is (and isn’t), what threatens it, and why it matters. We will explore prevention strategies to minimize the likelihood of losing this client-centered presence, and what we can do in the moment when it inevitably happens.
My intention is to provide a safe and compassionate space within which you can engage in honest self-reflection and dialogue with your peers. There will be opportunities for writing, small and large group discussion, guided mindfulness activities, experiential exercises...and space for whatever else we co-create. This four-hour course satisfies the new ethics continuing education requirement for massage therapists in Oregon and Washington.
