Energy Therapist and Meditation Mentor
Energy Medicine works on the life force network of the physical, mental and emotional levels of the body. I combine conversation and hands-on healing techniques to help clients identify the thoughts and habits beneath their symptoms. My intention with my work is to help restore the natural flow of energy and allow the client to heal.
Why am I an Energy Therapist?
I passionately believe in the healing power of Energy Medicine. Some years ago I suddenly developed a serious case of asthma. Traditional medical treatment left me tied to protocols and medications that didn’t always work, and often had troubling side-effects. I tried many different forms of treatment before working with an energy healer who was very helpful. Today I am mostly symptom free – no inhalers or medications used daily on a regular basis. I don’t say that I’m totally “cured”, because sometimes asthma symptoms return. I’ve learned that this is a way my body tells me something isn’t working in my life and needs my attention.
Based upon my personal experience receiving energy work, I decided to go to school for the formal study of this modality. To say this was a life changing experience doesn’t come close to what I gained from my studies. It is an honor now to be able to share what I’ve learned with my clients.

How do I look at illness?
I believe any discomfort or disease can serve as a kind of message. In my opinion, it is
a serious mistake to simply eliminate the symptoms we experience without exploring
the circumstances creating them. “How we feel” is a reflection of our thoughts, beliefs,
habits, lifestyle, and many environmental factors. Deeper healing is possible when we
examine all the factors in and around us and take responsibility for making changes
that will help us.
What can Energy Medicine treat?
I have worked with clients dealing with depression, addictions, fatigue, cancer,
infertility, headaches, and basic life situations like feeling disconnected from their
families or their lives. And I have witnessed energy work help with many other
diseases and life issues in the work of my professional colleagues.
Where does Energy Medicine fit with other medical treatments?
The work I do is not intended to replace any traditional medical treatments or other
complementary health care options. I see my sessions working in harmony with other
approaches to promote health and well-being. Energy consciousness work deals with
the vibrations and frequencies that are unique to each client. In my hands-on work I
remove blockages, clear and charge the client’s energy system, and remind
the energetic impulses of the body what their natural levels are. This encourages
healing to occur. I call this HEALING RESONANCE.
What does healing mean to me?
I refer to myself as an Energy Therapist rather than a “healer” because I don’t want
my clients to expect I alone will heal them. Real healing comes from within each of us
if we learn how to allow it to happen. In some ways I am also a mentor who helps
clients understand how their thoughts and lifestyle disrupt as well as support the
natural flow of their energy and impact their health. Our bodies are designed to heal
themselves naturally and energy awareness work is a powerful way to consciously
activate that natural healing process.

What does meditation mean to me?
Meditation is simply turning the mind inward to gently focus on the silence. It is
natural and effortless with some instruction. Although sitting is the most common
form, meditation is a way of being and can be practiced in movement, walking, or
many other activities.
Benefits of meditation
There are many benefits from meditation: reducing stress, fatigue, blood pressure,
intensity of pain, anxiety, and depression; increasing energy and mental clarity;
support for addiction recovery; and so much more.

of beliefs or religious practice. It is Universal – and available to anyone willing to sit
