I’ve been in private practice since 1989. Having experience in both mind and body oriented therapies, I initially developed an approach that combined counselling with hands-on energy healing (Reiki, chakra balancing).
I also provide online healing and counselling sessions. I am able to tune into your energy at a distance since our energy body / consciousness is not limited by distance or time. The process I engage in with you is interactive. In addition to me doing the energy healing, I also instruct you on how to place your hands on your chakras. It is a great opportunity for you to tune into your own subtle energy and learn how to manage it skillfully. I strive to create an accepting environment that encourages a relaxed and open dialog.
I keep abreast of new developments in energy therapy and psychology as well as continue with my own personal growth, striving always to provide the best quality therapy for my clients.
