Continuous Training in All Techniques & Therapies
As a professional in the Healing Arts, I am continuously self-teaching, studying and researching various tools and techniques in order to better my expertise and skill as well as understand more fully the potential of these modalities and the human being. In addition, I attend classes, seminars and training programs so that I may bring to you, my clients and readers, what I feel is the best of the combination of all techniques available.

I have had the wonderful experience and opportunity to work with many of the world’s leading therapists, healers, teachers and guides. I feel fortunate to be able to deliver their gifts to you with my own flavor and twist which is what makes my healing methods so unique and personal.
