As a youngster I was raised by medical parents; my father a surgeon and mom a nurse. The environment of helping people get well was in my blood. I enjoyed the medical world and trusted it to meet all my health care concerns until one day…I found the medical community was no longer addressing my needs.
Health issues were starting to appear in my mid to late twenties and something inside me said that there had to be a better way. Certainly, I was not just getting old??
My health journey began and much to my conventional wisdom and training, I began to explore more alternative therapies. I was fascinated by applied kinesiology and what I saw the body could tell us all on its own. The body’s own wisdom seemed so much more precise and in tune with all aspects that make us who we are. My practice focuses on the unique needs and priorities of each person rather than treating like symptoms in exactly the same manner.
I am certified as a bioenergetic practitioner in which I am trained to use a biofeedback machine to guide me to the body’s particular need for balancing. A lot of my training has been centered on the basics of how the body was intended to work; from nutritional needs to the very important aspect of emotional roots and the effect they play on disease and illness. Later, I began working with neurosomatic programming which enabled me to put aside the equipment and work strictly with facilitating the body’s healing process through energetic medicine. This freed me to be able to work on anyone in need at any given time with no limitation due to needing my equipment to measure the body’s stressors.
I later obtained my Naturopathic Doctorate through Trinity College of Natural Health. This allowed me to study a wide range of modalities such as herbology, flower essence therapy, reflexology, homeopathy and iridology just to name a few. In late 2004, I was introduced to BodyTalk. I felt a desire to work with a modality that would allow me to work with my clients on all levels; physical, emotional and spiritual but would not tie me to equipment or supplements. I am a certified BodyTalk practitioner and PaRama College graduate for advanced BodyTalk. I feel these studies work beautifully together to allow me to meet my clients needs where they are at as opposed to a cookie cutter approach of treating a list of symptoms.
