Private Practice

I offer three modalities of healing in the treatment room: Five-Element Acupuncture, Zero Balancing®, and Integrative Hypnosis. Each is described in more detail at the bottom of this page.

Working with me differs from being under the care of a Western medical practitioner. These notes will help you understand the outcomes you can expect from our time together:

You'll become a better observer of yourself.

Symptoms and signs are often messages from deeper within the body, mind, and spirit. At the very least we’ll work to bring them into a tolerable range. At the same time, you’ll become more aware of the wisdom contained in these messages. You’ll learn what contributes to these symptoms manifesting and how to manage them when they do occur.

You'll spend time in conversations that matter.

At the outset we’ll spend time speaking about the past in order to gather important historical information. Our subsequent conversations will primarily address the present (where and how you are in the moment) and the future (the life you want to design for yourself). Some of the stories you currently operate from will be challenged in our conversations together.

You'll learn about Nature as healer.

Nature is the oldest and most elegant teacher of health and wellness. Aligning your life and work with the rhythms of Nature and the cycles of the seasons are powerful ways to support your wellbeing in the present and prevent illness in the future.

You'll have a partner in creating change in your life.

Regaining and maintaining your health involves making changes. While making these changes most people run into resistance, obstacles, and their own ambivalence. Working together we’ll create practices that support your self-care and keep you headed in the direction you want to take in your life.

You'll learn that healing and learning are closely related.

In our time together you’ll learn new ways of being, doing, and speaking to sustain you in your journey. I’ll support you in being a beginner in these new ways of living.

In all my work I hold you as already being whole and complete. Everything you need to thrive in life is already in and around you. You are your own best medicine and your best care provider.

The modalities I offer in the treatment room:

Five-Element Acupuncture

The practice of Five-Element acupuncture has been a joy for the last thirty years. I see and tend the full spectrum of individuals, from those wanting to maintain their good health to those with chronic or life-threatening disease.

Zero Balancing®

Zero Balancing® is an efficient and elegant form of hands-on work that strengthens the relationship between energy and structure in the deepest tissues of the body. The sessions last about 45 minutes and are performed with you fully clothed. The gentle and noninvasive touch, called interface, helps to bring about a wonderful sense of integration, relaxation and well-being.

Integrative Hypnosis

There’s a long list of uses for hypnosis: relief from physical, mental, and emotional pain, changing negative lifestyle habits (smoking cessation, weight issues), reducing anxiety prior to surgery, and maximizing the healing process afterwards. Hypnosis also increases creativity and uncovers hidden resources, allowing clients to find their own answers to questions and concerns they might have. It is a powerful way to achieve your goals through self-awareness, self-care, and self-healing.

In addition to working directly with the unconscious mind, Integrative Hypnosis incorporates tools for conscious change work: Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or “tapping”, powerful ways to change language with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and energy psychology.
