I've been asked what kind of energy worker I am. I started learning energy based therapy as a new RN in the early 90s. I'm trained in Therapeutic Touch, Healing Touch (I took all my classes with Janet Mentgen and taught Level 1 for several years), Usui System & Enhanced Reiki (I'm an Independent Reiki Master Teacher), Core Shamanism (Michael Harner faculty), Medical Intuition (Winter Robinson), Hypnotherapy, and Chios Energy Field Therapy (Stephen Barrett). I have, on and off, had an office or worked out of a space; for a while I was available to do remote Medical Intuition readings, and I may re-institute that at some point when I have my own energy evened out. In the past decade, the majority of my work has been self-work and working on my loved ones; it's been a particularly dark spell in my life, in which I've stepped away from conventional nursing (at least for now) and I'm just beginning to do trades again with other healers. I am a great believer, as my mentor Janet Mentgen was, that the world would change for the better if there was a healer of some sort in every home. We need more love and balance, and understanding that the healer is a conduit, a midwife, if you will, for others who are ready for healing. After all, all healing is self-healing; I am only a facilitator.
