I have always been interested in exploring the mind and body connection. I took my first class in inner journeys and meditation about fifty years ago.
My journey as a therapist began many years ago. I was trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up, didn’t know. After my husband injured his back, we went to a massage therapist. I was intrigued by the combination of science, connection, spirituality, teaching, sharing, and being in charge of my own business. I started massage school in 1989 and am licensed by the State of Ohio Medical Board. I continue to learn about the mind, body, emotions, and spiritual connection for healing.
For many years, I used neuromuscular and deep tissue therapy my sessions. I loved being a detective to figure out the root cause of the discomfort or pain. I was fascinated by why some people heal and others do not. I wanted to learn more.
I added a light touch approach of Craniosacral therapy to save my hands and prolong my career. I soon learned the light touch had a deeply profound affect on healing. I also became fascinated with energy work; how it flowed, was blocked, and how it affected the healing process. More tools in my tool bag.
About fifteen years ago, I was going through a stressful time in my life. My parents needed more care and I stepped up to help. I had a lot on my plate; job, home, caregiver, and me time. I was stressed, tired, and burnt out. I found relief and self healing with the Healing From the Core curriculum. I learned to center, ground, focus, and journey within to find out what my body and soul needed to be nourished and nurtured. I have continued with this program and became a Certified Master Practitioner in Healing From the Core and Distant Healing from the Core.
I continue to evolve and learn about myself and the healing process. About seven years ago due to personal experiences, I was drawn to Shamanism and more deeply involved with the spirit realms. I use these sacred practices for myself and my clients when called upon.
As an elder woman, I now feel the calling to share what I have learned through workshops and private sessions. I believe each moment is a gift to cherish and explore. Gratitude is a daily intention for me.
