I am a Family Nurse Practitioner and have more than 35 years of experience in the medical field that includes emergency medicine, mental health, family practice, refugee health, and drug and alcohol treatment. In 1996, I opened Dolphin Healing Touch, and began a private practice working in alternative therapies. I found that by blending the gentle modalities of CranioSacral, Lymphatic Drainage, and Visceral, with Heart Centered and other deep emotional therapies, people transformed their lives. My belief is that by empowering each patient to take better care of their health, patients become healthier. The result is transforming lifelong patterns of dis-ease, reducing, or in some cases, ending reliance on long-term medications and treatments. I am a strong intuitive and have studied psychic and energetic medicine for many years. I also provide phone readings and long distance healing. I offer gentle detox options to remove heavy metals and chemical toxicity, assisting the body to run at a higher performance of health and vitality. We are seeing an increase in chronic disease as our earth becomes more polluted by the dumping of toxic substances into our soil, waterways and the air we breathe, and also the use of pesticides, herbicides chemical fertilizers in our food source. Throughout my career, I have led meditation groups and taught a variety of classes to both medical professionals and people of all walks of life. I am active in my local Chamber of Commerce and Rotary International offering local service. In the past I was active in Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, taught first aid and CPR not only through the local hospitals but also with the American Red Cross. I am an avid supporter of local veterans and their families and offer healing to those in need. I enjoy traveling, swimming with dolphins, reading, hiking, and teaching.
