About Me: Since I was a child, I have had an interest in the mind-body relationship and physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. I have learned from my love of water and nature that the tumbles, turns and fallen branches are often what lead to the greatest growth and opportunities for true healing to occur. When I am not spending time with my family or learning more about the mind/brain/body relationship, I am likely to be found swimming!
