Since 1995, it has been a privilege to help people make informed decisions and choices derived from their own insight. It has been a special honor to witness an individual take small steps that create big effects to ease their life transitions and embrace their next level of health and wellness.

I am passionate about helping others reclaim inner strengths and resources for their empowerment.  As a mind-body psychotherapist/counselor, biofield therapist and Healing Touch instructor, I have been training in mind-body techniques and psychotherapy, mindfulness practices, energy medicine and energy psychology methods for pain and stress relief since 1988 and I’ve had a private practice since 1995.


My philosophy and values

My philosophy is based on holism and resiliency. The values that guide me are Compassion, Caring, Collaboration, and Connection – the 4C’s. We are a team centered in compassionate care to help you help yourself in facing challenges and discovering your strengths in order to transform your pain, become empowered and cultivate your next level of health and wellbeing, whatever that may be for you.

I feel the keys to your best health are within you powered by the combined wisdom of your heart and mind.

My orientation is person-centered, strengths-based using an integrative approach. As therapeutically warranted, integrating psychodynamic work, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), voice dialogue with complementary therapies such as Healing Touch, Energy Medicine*, Energy Psychology* and mindfulness contemplative practices. These are evidenced-based techniques that are non-invasive. (*sometimes referred to as bioenergy healing therapy and biofield therapy).



Since 1995 I have been in private practice working in the health and wellness field with a focus on complementary and integrative therapies that support the health-wellness of caregivers and those who feel themselves to be helpers. I have a special interest in stress, anxiety, sensory processing sensitivity, life changes, health behaviors/well-care and the change process. I work collaboratively with each person striving to assist that person or group in improving coping skills, increasing resiliency, and enhancing the quality of their life and living.

I work holistically from a whole person perspective and a theoretical orientation that is person-centered, strengths-based using an integrative approach.

As a counselor, I integrate holistic, dynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy and voice-dialogue with evidence based complementary therapies of Healing Touch, Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology and mindfulness contemplative practices when therapeutically warranted. While I have worked with a diverse population of individuals and groups ranging from children and adolescents since 1995, I currently work with women 18 years and older in Maryland (MD).


As a biofield therapist, I integrate evidence-based complementary methods such as Healing Touch and Energy psychology to support a person’s health and wellness goals. Since 2010, I have been training nurses at Inova Healthcare Systems in Virginia in Healing Beyond Borders’ Healing Touch Certificate Program, have served as a sub-investigator 3 pilot studies involving the use of Healing Touch in an acute care multi-hospital setting and currently serve as a research consultant providing content expertise for a 4th study regarding the efficacy of Healing Touch in an ICU setting.

I have been providing wellness trainings, Healing Touch, counseling and consultant services in hospital, educational, and private practice treatment settings. Some of my past and current clients include Lehigh Valley Hospital in Pennsylvania, the University of Vermont, Expressive Therapy Center in Rockville, MD, the Potomac Massage Therapy Institute in Washington, DC and non-profits such as the Integrated Healthcare Policy Consortium.

I serve on the Research Committee of Healing Beyond Borders, Certifying and Educating the Healing TouchTM and provide mentoring for Healing Touch practitioner apprentices who seek certification in Healing Touch.

I hold professional memberships with the American Counseling Association, American Mental Health Counselors Association, Vermont Mental Health Counselors Association, Association for Specialists in Group Work, Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology and I’m a charter member of Healing Beyond Borders, Certifying and Educating the Healing TouchTM
