I believe that each life event is experienced and processed by the whole person - mind, body, spirit, and emotion. Whether it's physical pain, emotional issues, or recent or past trauma, these events need to be addressed with the whole person in mind.
It is my goal to lead each client towards attainment of optimal physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. I emphasize the need to look at the whole person, including analysis of physical, nutritional, emotional, social, spiritual and lifestyle values. I assist my clients in developing personal goals and the tools necessary to achieve balance and well being.

Who is taking care of you while you are taking care of everyone and everything else? And when there's still so much to do, how do get the energy to carry on?
