Originally from New York City, I came to San Francisco in 1971. I was interested in holistic health and took my first hundred hour training in massage in 1978. I began working with clients immediately. I went on from there to study at National Holistic Institute in Emeryville, CA and was on the faculty there from 1987-1994.
I became interested in energy medicine when my husband who had HIV was benefiting from Reiki sessions. I was so inspired that I began training in Reiki, achieving my masters level certification in 1998.
My interest in energy medicine continued and I began to study Healing Touch in 2012 and completed my certification in 2013. Always seeking more paths to healing, I took a training in Body Stories Work in 2014.
