Healing Autoimmune Disease & Chronic Pain
Supporting the Body, so it Can Heal Itself
More and more people are living with chronic illnesses such as arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and ulcerative colitis. Unlike acute illnesses, which have a shorter course, chronic illnesses are persistent and long lasting.
Conventional medical care uses pharmaceutical drugs to control chronic symptoms. Although this may suppress acute ailments temporarily, it is often not enough to permanently heal chronic complaints.
I believe in nourishing and gently supporting the whole person. I aim to work in harmony with the body; never against it.
The modalities I am trained in help mitigate unpleasant symptoms while also addressing the imbalances at the root of those symptoms. I align my clients with dietary and lifestyle habits to help improve their capacity for healing and their overall quality of life.
You won’t be defined by your diagnosis. You won’t be recommended the same “protocol” as every client with the same condition either. Rather, I will take the time to formulate a customized game plan just for you, with your help, to supporting your body in healing itself.
Let’s get you back on that horse, dance floor, mountain, and life.

Counseling Support for People Living with Chronic Illness
The physical body is the last place where illness manifests.
When our Spirits are unhappy, we are unwell. Even if we appear to be “winners” on the outside – physically attractive, well-paying job, nice car, beautiful spouse, perfect home, etc. etc. – if the deepest parts of us are unfulfilled, if we are at war with ourselves or our world, or if we are living out of sync with our values, we will invariably struggle mentally and emotionally. If left unchecked, those struggles can spill over into the physical body.
It can be terrifying to turn and face our own shadows. That’s why I’m here, to be your witness and your support person through the very important work of rediscovering and reclaiming your right to a satisfying life.
One way I do this is through a form of counseling based on my own holistic philosophy. Sessions are 60-90 minutes long, during which time I ask a series of both open-ended and directive questions to help unveil the patterns and negative messages swirling around in your subconscious. This allows your conscious mind to connect the dots between your brain, spirit, and physical body. During these sessions you will get to share your innermost struggles, fears, weaknesses, and issues you’ve carried your whole life. Most people come out of sessions feeling they have a better sense of themselves, and often their physical ailments “miraculously” improve slowly in the weeks and months that follow. Sometimes one session is all that’s needed, but usually people need a few to get to the various layers. We can space the sessions out to whatever timing feels right, from once a week, to once a month, to quarterly.
