Update from Swannanoa


Hello all! It has been quite a while since I have written on my blog.  I apologize.  After moving my husband’s home, my home, and the wellness center to Swannanoa in 2015, and remodeling part of our home to accommodate my new office space, it has been a bit of a whirlwind!

The new office space is just wonderful, serene, and a perfect setting for slowing down to take time out to heal at all levels.  You can see the view from our home and my office above.  My clients love to sit outside before or after treatment and absorb nature and the wildlife.

In January of 2016, we adopted a lab mix puppy from a shelter with the idea of training him to be a Pet Therapy Dog.  He is sweet and loving, and does have puppy energy!  For any of you that do not wish to be greeted at the door by a gentle loving sometimes excitable puppy, do let me know and I will put him outside.  His name is Beau and he has made an incredible addition to the healing space.


After 16 years in practice I have been searching for my next focus within Chinese Medicine.  I believe I am starting to get a glimpse of it.  I am fascinated how the brain works and how that affects our mood, how we handle stress, how our brain handles trauma, if we experience anxiety, depression, and those who have been labeled as ADD or ADHD or learning disabilities.  I will be focusing more of my spare time on researching how to treat these imbalances at an even deeper root level than I have been able to in the past. I have started to see changes already in clients as I engage more fully in my new passion.

I am grateful to be where I am in my life so that I may continue to serve and serve more deeply and wholly because of my life experiences.  I believe my path has been such a continued catalyst for me to grow, heal, and transform, that it can only serve you, my client, even more deeply.  I believe we can heal the deepest traumas within us to live a fulfilling, passionate, exciting life.

Here’s to healing and re-engaging with the world with a new perspective,
