Mindfulness is key to maintain balance and generate positive energy to facilitate rather than distract from healing and growth. It's our duty to be responsible in our reactions to environmental stress for ourselves as well as for the health and well being of future generations. We begin by becoming aware of our perceptions and reactions.

Stress can be a friend. Our reaction to it is a golden opportunity. Children learn by example. Adults set examples on a daily basis. Our mannerisms, comments and reactions are carefully noted. We make powerful impressions, with or without intention, on youngsters who are within earshot or view.
Through my workshops I help participants fine-tune these skills. Through my books I address issues of parenting, family communication and stress management.

In my private practice, my approach to wellness is holistic and preventive. As a functional medicine practitioner, I respect the body as your 'small business' and help you understand the language of your CEO (your brain) which communicates every moment of every day of your life. I teach paths of action without dictating linear prescriptions to follow. Root causes are addressed. The value of understanding how and why symptoms and conditions develop is explored. Referrals to licensed, certified and highly qualified members of my extended wellness team are made as needed. Healing is a process. Wellness is a delicate interplay among the mind, body and spirit. The relationship we have with ourselves is a choice we make. Each journey is sacred.

The goal: healthy parenting of our children. Achievement of this begins with one crucial healing step: parents need to avoid that which distracts from positive vibration and self-actualization. A healthy child-rearing environment is created when a parent recognizes (for him / her-self and the child) that there is no place for shame or guilt for erroneous past choices. This isn't to say we don't learn..

Babies aren't born with a step-by-step booklet outlining how to raise a happy, healthy child and yet, 'handle-with-care' is hopefully assumed. First-time parents depend on intuition and wisdom of those they trust to guide and troubleshoot. Each person is born with a unique set of needs. Over-indulging or depriving the child seems intuitively inappropriate to most who strive to create an emotionally..
