Once upon a time a little bird fell out of his nest, and
being too young to fly, took off on foot to try and find
his mother. "Are you my mother?" he asked everything he saw
along the way. No, the rusted out old car, the boat in the
river, the airplane overhead, none of these was his mother.
Finally, a huge machine heard the little bird's plea, scooped him up in its front-loader, and gently placed him in his nest just as his mother flew back home with a juicy worm for his dinner. *
Don't you love happy endings? I certainly do. That's why I have spent my entire career learning safe and effective ways to facilitate healing at all levels of body, mind, and spirit. Just like the little bird you may have tried many different things in your quest to find your way back to health. Even if you haven't found it yet and are getting discouraged, don't give up! I have worked with people who have had chronic or recurring problems for months or years, and together we have made great progress, often achieving complete remission of symptoms.
In my practice I work with high-functioning individuals who are ready to deal with the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues which are holding them back from being as happy and fulfilled as they have the potential to be. These include:
Pain, both acute and chronic, including chronic headaches and migraines
Physical and emotional trauma from accidents, including auto accidents
Accelerated recovery from illness, accident, and surgery
Trauma and associated problems stemming from abuse
Stress from whatever source
Self-defeating beliefs and behaviors
Depression, anxiety, negative self-talk
Feeling of emptiness, "something is wrong," don't belong, life is a struggle
Fears and phobias
Grief and loss
Issues of body image and self-esteem
Understanding and healing current life issues through past life regression therapy
Helping women and couples decide on an outcome for an unwanted pregnancy
I do not treat
Severe mental illness
Severe and chronic alcoholism
Families (family therapy)
Couples (couples therapy)
On the following pages is information about me and the work that I do. For ease of reference I have divided my work into categories, even though you and I understand that these divisions are to an extent artificial as the body, mind, and spirit all work together and are always influencing each other. These categories are Energy Healing, Counseling, Energy Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Past Life Regression Therapy, and Headache Relief.
The section on Book and Research includes information about my book, What Obituaries Don't Tell You: Conversations About Life and Death, and summaries of my Master's thesis on chronic back pain, a research essay on the content and outcomes of formal research using Healing Touch, and my Ph.D. dissertation on Healing Touch and Certified Healing Touch Practitioners.

ADVANCED CERTIFIED CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPIST
HEALING TOUCH CERTIFIED PRACTITIONER
I earned my undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Sociology at Linfield College, a school that sits on a beautiful campus graced by hundred plus-year-old oak trees in the small community of McMinnville, Oregon. After working for the state as a caseworker, raising my two sons, and developing a private practice, I returned to school for a Master's degree and a Ph.D. in Psychology. Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center (now Saybrook University) in San Francisco suited my needs and interests perfectly. As a graduate school with a Humanistic Psychology focus, it allowed me to pursue my interests in holistic health and healing. Under the Research section you can read about my Master's Thesis on back pain, and my Ph.D. Dissertation on energy healing and Certified Healing Touch Practitioners.
Healing Touch Certified Practitioner (HTCP). Healing Touch is an energy-based healing method developed by nurses in the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA), followed a few years later by Healing Touch becoming an independent program.
