I have always had an appreciation for the healing powers of homeopathy. But several years ago, after seeing a homeopath for my allergies, that appreciation deepened. I decided to become a homeopath myself.
My son was one-year-old and I was feeling ready to go back to work – but I didn't want to return to my previous career. I was feeling stuck. After seeing a homeopath and starting a homeopathic remedy, not only did my blocked sinuses clear, so did my state of mind. I experienced a mental/emotional shift that put me in awe of homeopathy. I wanted to equip myself with the knowledge and experience to share this deep, profound healing with others.
In 2012, I enrolled in a three-year program at the Berkeley Institute of Homeopathy. The training provided a solid grounding in the history, theory, and practice of homeopathy, while offering a compassionate and nourishing environment in which to learn.
Now, as a certified classical homeopath, I bring that safe, nurturing atmosphere to my own practice. I listen deeply and respectfully, giving my clients the space they need to feel comfortable speaking freely about their physical and emotional states. During our conversations I quietly ask some questions to help bring out certain information that will give me a more complete picture. Once that happens, the healing journey begins...
