My History and Statement of Purpose
My wish is for everyone to have the opportunity to fully participate in the gift of life. My training helps me address blocks to the health and happiness of people who come to see me. I’m here to especially help those who have had a lot of stress in their lives. A difficult childhood or later trauma can keep us from being able to share our joy and our gifts with others and can cause us to react rather than respond to life. This can cause illness over time if not resolved.
In my study and practice I have gone deep and wide having started this work early in my life. It is a pleasure to pass on healing work from traditions that have been so helpful to me. To further meet the challenges of today’s environment, I pursued training in whole food nutrition and techniques to streamline priorities, earning certificates in Applied Clinical Nutrition and Morphogenic Field Technique and Nutritional Response testing.
I love to teach those who come to work with me. My ability to sense energy and tend the Spirit has gotten stronger with practice and I love to be with people as they start on their journey with energy healing and share experiences with others who are well on their path.
