Hello and welcome!
I am a board-certified classical homeopath, flower essence practitioner, and educator. I live in Santa Barbara, California, and I teach and work with clients around the world virtually.
My mission is to teach people how to heal in harmony with nature so they can express their highest potential.
I believe that natural medicines are a powerful path to health and wellbeing. After seeing near-miraculous recoveries in myself and my loved ones, I decided to study natural healing and share this knowledge with others.
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 training with world-class homeopaths.
But my interest in natural healing goes back to my childhood and then to a turnaround experience I had in college, when I fully realized what natural medicines could do. I was blown away 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 became a Fast Reset® certified practitioner through Dr. Maria Grazia Parisi, MD, founder of the technique. Fast Reset® is a fast and effective neuroscience-based technique for emotional healing.
I teach Bach Flower Therapy courses designed specifically for homeopaths and I'm passionate about sharing this extraordinary modality with practitioners and the general public.
I have founded, and continue to lead, multiple online study groups for homeopaths.
Since 2019, I serve on the board of directors of the California Homeopathic Medical Society.
A select list of my publications can be found below.
My teaching and practice integrate the wisdom of many approaches and I tailor my work to best support your unique needs.
To your health and happiness,
