Meet Heron

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.

One of my good friends. It’s important to have time to wonder about the smallest of things. Wandering is equally important. I love the beauty to be found in life, whether in a garden, walking to greet a summer morning, or in times long past. Getting together with friends and family is sweet.
