In my 25 years of practice as a healer, spiritual psychologist, acupuncturist, intuitive counselor, I have come to believe one thing: whole = health. What I mean by this is that in order to truly heal, we must take an integrated approach, one that focuses on every aspect of our lives, not just a specific point of pain.
For the countless patients I have helped, the breakthrough towards healing always came when we looked beyond the pain itself. When we explored more deeply into the whole person: physically, psychologically, and spiritually.
“What is healing?” and “How does healing happen?” These questions drove me to explore aspects of both eastern and western medicine, including:
- Oriental Medicine
- Energy medicine
- Quantum physics theory
- Sacred geometry
Along the way, I earned two Masters Degrees: one in Spiritual Psychology and the other in Oriental Medicine.
I find Eastern Medicine provides a lens for seeing and working with the connections between our physical, emotional, energetic, and mental bodies. And through it, we can also see how all of who we are is interrelated with the universe around us. We are a product of our universe and the universe is a product of who we are. We are more than the sum of our parts. My approach is to support your body’s own resources to return to it’s most harmonious state.
I came to this entire approach as a skeptic. It began in college when I began to get migraines and tried every conventional approach available at the time to no avail. As a last resort, I tried acupuncture and as it turned out, never got another migraine for nearly 25 years.
This was a game-changing moment for me. It shifted my belief system. It brought me to the undeniable realization that there are other systems of medicine that are valid and potentially more effective then what is conventionally known and accepted. It gave me permission to question what is accepted as truth by the authorities of the time. Above all, it made me very curious and open to learning.
I was raised by an artist and I went to college with the intention of learning about the creative process. And although, I did enter into a successful career in graphic design, What I later came to realize was that the human energy field — and healing itself — is a creative event. The more we understand this creative process, the more we can forge the lives we want, filled with a sense of wholeness and meaning.
It’s about accessing our innate creativity and utilizing it to create health, and fulfillment in our lives.
This is how I approach my work with each client.
Before I was trained as a doctor of Oriental medicine, I was an art director in NYC. I was successful by any outward measure, winning awards and working at top agencies. But I wasn’t happy. I had this nagging feeling that something was missing. I felt like an empty shell going through the motions of what had been planned for me but never really felt fulfilled. I knew I wanted something more, but I didn’t have a clue what that was. To add to that, the fact that I was successful in my field made it more confusing because I got a lot validation that I was on the right track, even though inwardly, I was feeling more and more separated from myself.
The journey that began back then has lead me to where I am today: helping others bridge that gap between health and feeling whole.
Today I live in Fairfield county Connecticut, and continue my study of healing with my clients and with a curiosity that only grows with the more I learn.
