I came to this field through a sense of compassionate awareness that was living in my heart from as early as I can remember.
With over 34 years in this field I have gained an understanding that is effective and practical. There is nothing more rewarding for me than to awaken the power within an individual to become their own best doctor, healer and best friend.
