Systemic and Mind Body Counseling:
“We rarely hear the music but
we’re all dancing to it.”
Clients are invited to embark on
their own journey of self-discovery. By spending
quality time with all parts of our selves, from
body sensations to belief systems, as well as
relationship, family and ancestral patterns, we
open to the possibility of making the invisible
visible, moving out of constant reactivity into
the realm of clear choice. This journey also means
celebrating our humanity, courage, problem-solving
abilities, and sense of humor.
and Hands-On Healing:
"Soul and Body,
I suggest, react sympathetically upon each other.
A change in the state of the Soul produces a change
in the shape of the Body; and conversely, a change
in the shape of the Body, produces a change in
the shape of the Soul."
A chiropractor since the mid-80’s,
I have often joked that my specialty is “sports
and spiritual injuries”. The human body,
and its many paths to healing, provides an infinite
source of fascination. By choosing from a range
of therapies, each accessing a different way in
to the body mind, we explore the continuum of
experience from the less subtle to the more subtle.
Modalities offered include deep tissue myofascial
therapy, chiropractic, craniosacral therapy, hypnotherapy,
hands-on healing*, energy awareness techniques,
and guided imagery.
Healing works with the human energy field, which
carries information about the mind, body and spirit.
By increasing the amount of life force (or "chi")
in our energy systems, we increase awareness and
encourage movement towards healing, awakening,
and realizing our heart's deepest longing. As
a practitioner of "energy medicine,"
(a new name for a timeless set of ideas) I work
with pain as blocked energy. In itself, this blocked
area is neither good nor bad. Instead it is energy
that is not flowing freely. Our belief that pain
is evil, cruel, or out to get us adds another
level of stress to an already stressed system.
The energy blocked in "pain," once released,
becomes energy that works for our well-being.

the extent that we have lost touch with our longing,
