Pronouns: She/Her/Their
Identifications: Lesbian, Irish-German American

Healing Modalities: Homeopathy (classical/ constitutional: one remedy for an individual, not for a symptom or condition)
Qualifications/Credentials: Board Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH)

Bio: Specializing in all forms of trauma, including trans-generational (epigenetic) and acquired, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
I have practiced for fifteen years, and have helped a very diverse group of people with many different health issues. I got into homeopathic medicine after being very impressed with what it did for my son and my wife’s son. In Homeopathy we define health as freedom on all levels including the freedom from pain and the freedom to be at choice in the moment, rather than overly encumbered by anxiety or thoughts which we all have sometimes. We don’t diagnose. We match a person to a remedy based on what your experience is of your body-mind-spirit going out of balance when you’re under duress.
