My approach to healing is to enter into a caring and supportive partnership with you to enhance your intrinsic capacity for health and well-being in all aspects of life. This is a partnership where responsibility is shared. In deepening our understanding of how healing occurs, our relationship to symptoms and illness shifts. We begin to see how they give us important messages as to where we are most vulnerable and provide in themselves the keys to moving beyond them in achieving well-being. We become more attuned to our needs and rhythms and realize we are an interconnected whole of body/emotions/mind and spirit. We more clearly understand the internal and external factors (diet, exercise, environmental stress, attitudes, fears, worries, etc.) which contribute to our state of health. Instead of being reactive to illness, we choose to become pro-active in preventing illness and learn to manage our own health effectively.
