Mindfulness is key in order to maintain balance and generate appropriate energy to facilitate rather than distract from healing and growth on multiple levels. It's our duty to be responsible in our reactions to environmental stress for ourselves as well as for the health and well being of future generations. We begin by becoming aware of our perceptions and reactions.

Stress can be a friend. Our reaction to it is a golden opportunity. Children learn by example. Adults, no matter what our role, set examples on a daily basis. Our mannerisms, comments and reactions are carefully noted. We make powerful impressions, with or without intention, on youngsters who are within earshot or view.
Through my workshops I help participants fine-tune these skills. Through my books I address issues of parenting, family communication and stress management.

In my private practice, my approach to wellness is holistic and preventive; I consider myself a 'functional medicine' practitioner. Respect for energy and vibration is the theme as I connect with each patient, customizing healing methods in a patient-centered way. I teach paths of action without dictating linear prescriptions to follow, seeking to understand each individual who presents with a particular problem. Root causes are addressed, recognizing the value of understanding how and why symptoms and conditions develop. Referrals to licensed, certified and highly qualified members of my extended wellness team are made as needed. Healing is a process. Wellness is a delicate interplay among the mind, body and spirit. The relationship we have with ourselves is a choice we make. Each journey is sacred.
