PROFESSIONAL GIFTS & SKILLS
At the core of my actions and beliefs is the knowledge that healing is what every body was designed to do innately. At best, as practitioners, we simply “mid-wife” a natural process. I bring a unique combination of experience and knowledge from Medical Nursing, combined with 65 complimentary healing therapies, that allows me to be a “bridge” of understanding between allopathic and holistic health care. My focus is on guiding clients to self-responsibility, helping them understand their medical diagnosis, treatment and options, doing hands-on healing to augment the healing process, and empowering them for change by teaching them tools of natural healing like meditation, exercise, breathing, life-style considerations, herbs, nutrition, homeopathics, and specific self-massage. This is effective for a broad range of client needs from simple relaxation to profound health crisis. I am capable of teaching health education to families, as well as to professionals.
