It is an honor and a passion of mine to work with people consciously choosing to create a balanced, healthy and creative life.
I am certified in Mind-Body Medicine through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, D.C.
I've had the good fortune of having remarkable healers in my life who have guided me in my journey of finding balance and calm. I am indebted to them. The balance of life is always changing; accepting this truth challenges all of us at one time or another. You have the courage and capacity to find balance and calm. You can cultivate your own inner wisdom.
I was a mediator and coach for twenty years and am a Qualified Neutral under the Minnesota General Rule of Practice for the District Courts Rule 114 and a mediator in good standing. I've worked in the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEI+B) field since 2000 coaching organizations and individuals working towards equitable and inclusive goals. I facilitate dialogues on racism, equity and equality. I am a Qualified Administrator of the Intercultural Developmental Inventory® tool. I coach individuals and lead workshops and classes in Mind-Body-Medicine.
I've worked in Hospice settings and with individuals as they've found inner peace and calm in their last days. I am a former EMT with three years experience on a rural ambulance. I have a B.A. in Medical Anthropology and extensive training in many integrative-medicine practices and healing modalities.
I make a pretty good loaf of sourdough bread and won many first place ribbons in whitewater canoe races. I am also learning to yodel.
Below, in pictures, are some of the things that sustain me in life.
