Detailed Information

I am 46 years old and have been living in Forestville for 25 years. I am married and call three rescue Chihuahuas my kids. My background is in scholarly academics, coffee, technology, punk rock music and abstract art. I am an alumna of Sonoma State University with a BA in Liberal Arts and an MA in Rhetoric. I made a somewhat radical departure into the healing arts six years ago when I had to leave my job due to a serious undiagnosed illness which was later found to be Lyme disease. This life changing physical and emotional malady set me on a path of wellness that included Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, western herbal medicine and a number of healing modalities. I fought a successful battle with the disease and decided to use my experience to help others. I have also been the main caregiver for two parents who are now deceased, so I have years of personal experience working with sick, elderly and dying people. My journey along the path of wellness feels well trodden already and I am blessed to continue this journey in the service of others.
