In over twenty years of clinical practice in the holistic healing arts, I have come to stand on this one single statement: presence and authenticity are the key to healing. That means istening to my patients and clients, seeing and honoring them in their vulnerabiilty, and holding space with them so they can pause and heal.
My patients and clients are not just names that fill my schedule. They are vital beings who are necessary to the evolution of life on this planet. They are people who are struggling, be it with physical pain or limitation, or in matters of the spirit. They are deserving of compassion, understanding, and personalized care to help them meet their goals. Whether that means helping them getting out of pain, have a healthy child, or finding peace of spirit, this is my role.
