To achieve more understanding of health, my professional background comprises a 4 year degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Queens College, City University of New York, and a 4 year diploma in Herbal Medicine from the renowned School of Phytotherapy, East Sussex. I am a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists and also a member of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers.
No matter what conditions you have, my approach to healing is the same. The person and their life experiences are as important to me as the condition they come in with. Through an understanding of both, healing is possible.
Healing comes through a combination of improving well being so the individual starts their own healing process, while gently encouraging the body to move in a more healing state.
I may give nutritional advise, I may give a herbal remedy, I may teach you a healing tool, I may do a visualization, or I may give you all. I go by your needs and wishes, and always with your best intention in mind.
Originally from Queens, New York, I began studying alternative medicine in the early 80's after careers on Wall Street and as a potter. I moved to England with my English husband in 1996 and soon after began running Holistic Well Women Clinics in Somerset and Wiltshire treating women's hormonal conditions with herbs and nutritional advise. But finding myself limited in what I could achieve, I began to learn various healing methods which helped broaden me professionally and also personally. From this has arose the rounded approach I use today in my practice and teaching, and brought about our move to the lovely Welsh/Shropshire border where I am able to practice and teach in a place of astounding beauty fitting to healing. I am now happy to share my knowledge with the new herbalists coming forward as a tutor and mentor in Herbal Medicine.
I am available for consultations and offer a variety of workshops and lectures geared for all levels of understanding. In Spring 2009 my book, "Healing Our Hormones, Healing Our Lives: solutions to common hormone conditions", offering a holistic approach to women's hormonal health was published by O-Books.
