Philosophy

Human beings are fine-tuned, highly complex, ever-changing and growing organisms. I excel at listening to the body and then responding in a way that will bring forth optimal awareness and health. What I love about the more subtle forms of medicine is how seemingly simple procedures, adding a needle in a single location or pressing lightly on a specific point, can bring about fundamental shifts in a person's awareness and innate healing abilities. I love taking in the whole picture. Without a glimpse at the big perspective, it's hard to envision the changes and the steps necessary to get there. Also, the big picture view allows us to truly see and embody that everything is connected and plays a part in the journey. My goal is to use modalities that awaken all aspects of consciousness so that the complete being is able to live life with full capacity to deepen, expand and integrate continuously.
