No one can tell you what meaning a disease, illness, or life transition holds for you, but I can help you through a process where you can uncover your own meaning and the healing approaches that best serve you.
I work with you and my Integrated Healing Team to design a program of healing unique for your situation. I use herbs, botanicals, vitamins, nutrition, and healing through the human energy field; I also use medical technologies (and medical arts such as surgery) when necessary.

How does your healing modality work?
I consider any illness, health issue, crisis, or transition as an opportunity for healing, and an opportunity to listen to our bodies and our inner journey. The key is discovering with the patient what she needs, from all levels of being.
We then can design a unique program of healing for each person and her situation, using medical, energy healing, and natural approaches. In this way the patient can experience a multidimensional healing.

How do you see your services evolving over the next three years?
I expect to work more with healing through the human energy field as the first approach to medical and surgical issues, and in dealing with illness and life transition.

Issues / Benefits

Presenting issues and problems or types of clients

Why do people come to see you?
Women seek me because I help them change their lives. My intention is to partner with my patient using a blend of medical knowledge, natural resources, and an intuitive, listening approach, so that she can be empowered to become more whole.
A woman may be most interested in natural medicines (e.g. herbals or bioidentical hormones), healing through the human energy field, or surgery with energy healing combined. Whatever the issue is, we work together to discover what the patient needs, from all levels of being.

Who is an ideal client?
An ideal client is a woman who is open to natural medicines and healing through the human energy field, and is motivated and ready to use their health issue or crisis as an opportunity for healing.

Benefits and results people see

Women become more empowered and whole using a multidimensional approach. Many people have been able to resolve health issues and personal issues using energy healing. Particularly at midlife, women often find that they need support with various modalities.
This time in a woman's life involves profound changes spiritually, emotionally, and physically. By embracing these changes with an attitude of self-discovery, and with the support of a practical healing plan, we reap the rewards of becoming a Wise Woman.


Healing philosophy or mission

I have learned that whatever health crisis or transition we are going through, it is a sacred opportunity. Rather than consider illness, imbalance, or life transition as something to cure, heal away, or abolish, the crisis is a sacred partner to those of us who would listen. Using medical intuitive and energetic approaches, a multidimensional healing can result.

Uniqueness and what makes you good

Describe your style or approach:
I work with my patients to co-design a healing program unique for each person and her situation.
We may use herbs, botanicals, vitamins, healing through the human energy field as well as medical technologies and arts (such as surgery) when appropriate.

What makes you different/good at what you do?
I employ a unified approach to whole health, being discerning (and intuitive) about when to use traditional and energy or natural approaches so that these approaches are not in conflict, but in concert. I, myself, have walked this path, working through my personal crises as opportunities for healing.

Why do you do what you do?
It is moving for me to partner with a woman on her healing journey. I have been privileged to facilitate tremendous growth and healing using a multidimensional approach.
I am grateful for the women who allow me the opportunity to fulfill my calling of bringing medicine and healing together.

What else might someone want to know about you?
I am 52 years old, married, and have 2 daughters (ages 13 and 18) who are beautiful spiritual teachers to me. I also have 2 dogs and 2 cats who also ground me and nurture me.

Typical session and how to prepare:

Describe a typical session:
An initial session includes an interview and history review, and a discussion of the patient's concerns and goals for healing. A physical and energetic exam are performed as necessary. Other diagnostic testing may be obtained.
We work to design a program of healing unique for each person and her situation. We use nutrition, herbs, botanicals, vitamins, and healing through the human energy field; we also use medical technologies (and medical arts such as surgery) when necessary.
I have been privileged to facilitate tremendous growth and healing through surgeries, during menopause, for permanent weight loss, for hormone imbalances, PMS, for infertility, for sexual function issues, for incontinence, and other issues.
For an energy healing session, a brief discussion and intention for healing is laid out with the client. The energy healing takes place in a massage-style healing room with the patient clothed. Following the session, a follow-up discussion is held.

How should someone prepare for a session?
It is best to contemplate what the intention and goals for the session will be.
Record in writing any pertinent intentions, goals, history, or insights that may be helpful.

Tips For You By Healing Space

CancerWhen you have a diagnosis of cancer you have a higher chance for cure if you are proactive in your treatment plan by joining and participating in a support group and keeping a journal. People with cancer who direct their treatment (chemo, radiation, surgery) with visualization or affirmation (e.g. “I accept this chemotherapy into my body to do its job in eliminating cancer cells; I shield normal tissues from side effects.”) have more effective treatment and fewer side effects. While a medical treatment plan is being developed, I help the patient to develop a personal healing plan. This may include energy healing sessions that reinforce and shield normal tissues and organs from the effects of treatment, and help to clear the energy field from the residue of anesthesia, chemotherapy, or radiation.
