Other Practices

Working in private practice for more than 30 years, I’ve been helping individuals understand the full potential and power of their minds, while coaching them to live the life they were meant to live. As a member of Emerson Hospital’s Reiki and Integrative Medicine Teams, I offer Reiki and guided imagery to complement medical treatments. I have presented at numerous hospitals, schools, businesses, and wellness centers across New England on the "Power of the Mind" and the "Mind-Body Connection".   My seminars and trainings teach audiences to gain power over health and wellness, daily outcomes, and to create more peace in their lives.  I empower school children by helping them use their minds to the fullest to create better academic and sports outcomes, reduce anxiety, strengthen relationships, and boost self-esteem and confidence.  HARNESSING THE POWER OF YOUR MIND
For thousands of years, human beings have practiced refined techniques of mental focusing that are designed to change the habitual conditioning of the mind.  In recent decades, modern science has dramatically confirmed what professional and Olympic athletes have long claimed—that the mind offers deep and lasting benefits for mental functioning, emotional health, as well as for physical health and wellness.  Whether it’s mindfulness, meditation, creative visualization, or one of the many other mind-focusing techniques, I can teach you how to better embrace life’s every-changing impermanence, to live in equanimity with the inevitable ups and downs of being human, and to feel deeply connected to the whole of life.
Some of the practical benefits include:

  • Marked and lasting reduction of stress
  • Increased physical strength and performance
  • Increased ability to focus and concentrate
  • Clarity of thinking
  • Freedom from detrimental patterns of thoughts and emotions
  • Increased learning capacity and memory
  • Greatly enhanced well-being and peacefulness 
Mind-Body Wellness can apply to all levels of emotional and physical health and wellness.  The mind-body connection focuses on the interconnectedness of a person as a whole, and not just the separate parts of the body.  The mind-body connection can be instrumental in revealing the emotional, mental, and spiritual elements of physical disease. Becoming aware of the possible causes of an ailment could be the catalyst for self-healing. This work is meant to complement prescribed medical treatment and not replace it.  
Mind-Body Healing Visualization and Guided Imagery is a program specifically designed to complement current medical treatments, based on the concept that your body and mind are connected. Holding on to old and limiting beliefs can produce negative health consequences while positive thoughts are essential to producing improved health results. A customized Visualization and Guided Imagery program is an aid on the journey toward physical and emotional healing, and patients utilizing these techniques have been known to have less pain, less stress, require less pain medication, and enjoy a more rapid recovery. It is often used during pre-and post-surgery, during cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, and as a complement to physical therapy.
Spiritual Healing recognizes that our thoughts, feelings, actions, memories, experiences, and bodies are all one interrelated flow of energy, even impacting each other in thousands of ways every day. Every thought and feeling we have resonates throughout our bodies. If we experience trauma, sadness, abuse, fear, or abandonment, our body registers this emotional content.  When we are out of balance emotionally or mentally, this manifests itself in our bodies and creating balance is our inner work. This work most powerfully consists of identifying and releasing blocked emotional, mental, and spiritual energy which is manifesting as pain, hurt, anger, broken relationships, poor communications, repeating confrontations, disease, etc.
Hands-on Healing, also known as Energy, Radiant, or Spiritual Healing, has been practiced by many cultures for thousands of years.  One form of hands-on-healing is the ancient practice of Reiki.  The application of this practice is encouraged by the medical profession for their patients and is used by many hospitals to complement in-patient care.
I’ve been a hands-on-healer most of my adult life and am also a certified Reiki Master Healer. I incorporate this gentle energy work and guided imagery into my spiritual healing practice as well as to patients and staff at Emerson Hospital in Concord, Massachusetts where I’m  a member of their Reiki and Integrative Medicine Team.
