Is there a pattern in your story?
Behind every person who comes to see me is a mystery, with clues as to what might help to enhance their well-being. I love listening to my clients’ stories and creatively piecing together seemingly unrelated elements, in order to help them see new linkages and take charge of their own healing in a holistic way.
From an early age, I was interested in our body’s self-healing abilities, and in how attitude and lifestyle choices affect our well-being. I found yoga and tai chi to be particularly appealing. Long before the word ‘mindfulness’ became so popular, these disciplines, with their holistic philosophies and emphasis on self-awareness, were of great interest to me.
Discovering naturopathic and homeopathic medicine allowed me to continue down this road and was a life-changing experience for me. I was hooked! In 1983, I received my degree in naturopathy from the National University of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon.
Since then, I have deepened and expanded my knowledge and skills through voracious reading and ongoing professional development. Feeding my growing passion for Classical Homeopathy, I furthered my studies in India under several superb mentors, including Dr. Rajan Sankaran.
My own experience with the gentle power of homeopathy to support me through the grieving process, particularly following the death of my son Emrys in 2003, has reinforced for me its value in assisting those who are experiencing grief and personal loss.
