Hello and Welcome!
I am a classical homeopath and wellness educator. I live in Santa Barbara, California, and work with clients around the world virtually.
My mission is to teach people how to heal in harmony with nature so they can live to their highest potential.
I believe that natural medicines – and especially homeopathy – are a powerful path to health and wellbeing. After seeing near-miraculous recoveries in myself and my loved ones, I decided to dedicate my life to the study of natural healing.
I completed advanced homeopathic training through the 4-year practitioner program at the School of Homeopathy (Stroud, UK), in addition to hundreds of hours of additional training with world-class homeopaths.
But my interest in natural healing goes back to my childhood and later to a turnaround experience I had in college. I was powering through school with great success and was, by all appearances, at the top of my game. Beneath it all, I felt like a train wreck. I was suffering from anxiety, fatigue, and a laundry list of physical symptoms. Conventional doctors insisted that my bloodwork looked great and sent me away. Like so many people today, I felt frustrated and hopeless.
Shortly after that I met two integrative MDs who would turn my life around. I then fully realized what natural medicines could do. I was fascinated and eager to know more. So the long and exciting learning journey began.
In 1998 I completed advanced training in Bach Flower Therapy with Dr. Maria Grazia Parisi, MD, through the Scuola di Medicina Naturale Natura Naturans (Cagliari, Italy), where I learned how powerfully flower essence therapy can support emotional healing.
In 2006 I received my diploma in clinical hypnotherapy from the Alchemy Institute of Hypnosis (Santa Rosa, California), where I learned a Jungian-based, spiritual approach to hypnotherapy.
In 2009 I received my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania with a dissertation in historical linguistics and semiotics, after two related master's degrees — all of which gave me a depth and breadth of perspective on human language and consciousness that I bring to my practice.
In 2014, I trained in Fast Reset® and received certified practitioner status through Dr. Maria Grazia Parisi, MD, founder of the technique. Fast Reset® is a fast and effective neuroscience-based technique for emotional healing.
In 2016 I co-founded and now continue to lead a study group for homeopaths in North America.
Since 2019, I serve on the board of directors of the California Homeopathic Medical Society.
My publications in specialized and peer-reviewed homeopathy journals can be found below.
My practice is focused on homeopathy but it integrates the wisdom of many approaches. Each individual is unique and I tailor our work together to best support your healing process.
Please contact me if you would like to see if natural healing is the right path for you.
