Welcome to the Inner-healing Web Site

LCS 6184, MFC 15488

Therapy for the heart, mind, body and spirit in a safe and healing setting

This Inner-healing web site is a resource center for the support and promotion of personal growth and healing.

My desire is to support people in their own healing through the compassionate and courageous work of their hearts. 

 

My Resume

Philosophy

I work with individuals (including children, adolescents and teens) and couples from a holistic and somatic-oriented perspective which emphasizes the integration of the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of ourselves.  My experience of more than 20 years is that the places and the issues where we become stuck can become the opportunities and "teachers" we need in order to grow and heal. Our task is to be willing to approach these areas with our courage and our compassion.

The following areas describe my professional background, training and experience.
