Professional Summary
I am an experienced integrative healthcare practitioner, nationally certified in classical homeopathy. I began practicing in 1994, and for the past decade, my work has been primarily focused on endocrine, reproductive and fertility issues.  I offer biochemics, gemmotherapy, counseling, hypnotherapy, botanical and nutritional supplements, and dietary therapies to my clients. I am not a physician and do not diagnose or treat specific diseases. I work from a holistic perspective, in cooperation with each client’s primary care practitioner to promote health and relieve discomfort of presenting symptoms.

In addition to consultation, I teach at conferences and schools across North America, and have authored two widely used homeopathic textbooks. I teach a continuing education program with strong emphasis in clinical efficacy, using homeopathy and other integrative therapeutics to broaden practitioner skills.

As an advocate for credentialing within integrative healthcare, I served as a board member and past president of the Council for Homeopathic Certification.  From 2012 through 2015, I served as Education Director for Homeopaths without Borders (NA) focusing on establishment of a self sustaining homeopathic profession in Haiti. From 2013 through 2015, I served on the Board of Directors for the Integrative Health Policy Consortium as a representative for the National Center for Homeopathy as a Partner for Health.

I practice under the California Business and Professions Code sections 2053.5-6, adhering to the professional ethics required by the Council for Homeopathic Certification.

As of April 2016, I am taking a sabbatical from practice while working with a private foundation conducting ground-breaking biofield research. I continue to teach and present at conferences.
