UNCOVER THE BELIEFS THAT ARE AT THE ROOT OF YOUR HEALTH ISSUES
You intuitively know that what goes on in your heart and head affects the way you interact with your body. However, you will come to know that emotions, pain, and dysfunction are impermanent. As they pass over and through you, the space that is freed can be filled with humor, love, strength, curiosity, in essence what is truly YOU. That is empowerment.
What is preventing you from fully living as your true self?
How would your life be different if you allowed your beautiful inner light to lead you and govern your decisions?
What if you were able to shed all your acquired beliefs and expectations and just BE?
This method of dialoguing is aimed at uncovering the deep beliefs that affect your state of health or disease. I will sit with you while plunging into the depths of your thoughts and feelings. How is what’s happening in your mind related to what is happening in your body? We will explore that terrain together. If you can be freed from your limiting beliefs, your physical healing will be all the more profound.
Do you suffer from chronic disease or pain? Does your healing seem to be “stuck”? Do you have a sense that there may be a mental/emotional component to your illness? Are you grappling with chronic illness or pain like fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, cancer, anxiety, a weight or eating disorder, diabetes, GI issues, hormonal issues, heart disease, hypertension, etc?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, you most likely would benefit from a few focused sessions of mind-body counseling with me.
This work is complementary to the care you receive from your other healthcare providers.
CranioSacral & Bowen Therapies
Releasing tension. Restoring the flow of energy. Balancing the nervous system. Moving the immune system. Cleansing the tissues.
By applying gentle touch to the body, the tissues can open and realign. What is happening on the physical plane is a reflection of mental and emotional states both current and long-past. Receiving bodywork is often the stimulus needed to get things moving, surfacing, and connecting.
Let's work together to explore what you are holding onto.
As a whole and integrated being, your mind and body are in constant communication. Your body reflects the negative stressors in your life with symptoms and dysfunction. Equally, the positive input from your mind manifests as you feeling and functioning healthy and well.
What can be released?
CranioSacral and Bowen therapies are like a tune up for the nervous system and have far reaching benefits, especially when the connection between mind and body is needing to be illuminated.
Holistic Diabetes Care
A NATUROPATHIC APPROACH WITH A MIND-BODY EMPHASIS
Diabetes. Mind-body medicine. The intersection where the two meet is one focus of my naturopathic practice. You may be a child with Type 1 diabetes (or the parent of), a senior with Type 2 diabetes, or somewhere in between. Your diabetes may be well-managed, poorly managed, or you're just learning what "managed" actually means. You may feel pride, anger, frustration, confusion, contentment or a whole bunch of other things when it comes to living daily with diabetes. Whatever your individual scenario, it's likely that you are in a position of wanting or needing some support around your personal care.
I work with my diabetic patients on diet, medications, supplements, exercise, and more. But uniquely I also place high importance on addressing the mental-emotional component of living with diabetes. I want people to achieve optimal blood sugars, reduce complications, & live more joyful, less stressful lives.
Low-carb diet. Stop feeding your blood sugar carb-dense foods that turn into glucose. Start loading up on nutrient-dense foods that replete you with vitamins, antioxidants, protein, minerals, fiber, and hundreds of phytonutrients!
Exercise. Move your body! Whether it's in a formal gym setting or dancing across a meadow, all movement counts! Diabetics need both cardio and resistance exercise for overall fitness and blood sugar control. Muscle uses up excess glucose.
Stress and your mental health. Are you stuck? Feel resistant to making changes? Believe that things can't change? Does diabetes define you? In denial? Frustrated? The challenges of living with diabetes impact you daily. Tap into your inner strength and resilience!
Treating you as a whole person. Physical. Mental. Emotional. Spiritual. We address whatever system is out of balance: sleep, digestive, detoxification, hormonal, etc.

TeleHealth - Appointments from Afar
No matter where you live or travel to in the state of Oregon, it is possible to have an appointment with me by phone or video conference.
Mind-body counseling, which is aimed at uncovering the connection between the symptoms or pain in your body and the thoughts or emotions in your mind, works quite well by virtual consultation. I have found that when people become aware of how one is affecting the other, deeper and longer-lasting healing is possible.
Clients from anywhere in the state are able to work with me in this capacity. I may use other mind-body modalities that can also be engaged in via video conference in conjunction with the counseling dialogue. This type of care is complementary to the work that you typically do with other healthcare practitioners and should not be considered as a replacement for that care.
Telehealth appointments are not intended to take the place of regular, in-person medical care and cannot be used for diagnosis of or prescribing treatment for medical conditions. You must be under the care of a physician in your hometown and have the intention of using my services as an adjunct to your treatment plan.
If in doubt, contact me and we'll chat about what your needs are and how I might be able to help you.
I love working with women.
Women who are curious, open, spiritual, intuitive, connected, wise...
Women who are seeking, transitioning, yearning, changing, questioning...
Often I see women who are restless, unfulfilled, dissatisfied, confused, bogged down, depressed, unsure. They don't feel right. They know that something isn't right and that something's gotta change. But they don't know what it is or how to change it.
These are women who need to access and listen to the deeper workings of their subconscious; women who need to become more aware of what their body's messages are. I love helping women unravel these complexities through holistic counseling, bodywork, homeopathy, etc. It is not me who facilitates their healing. I merely act as a conduit, guiding them to connect with their core inner self and then to connect into the healing life energy that flows around and through each of us constantly.
Women going through transitions, whether it be menopause, a new career, a new identity, or a gander into the unknown realm of "what do I really want in life" resonate very well with the holistic dialogue process.
Does this sound like you? I would be honored to be invited to come along on your healing journey!
