"She is an amazing practitioner! Acutely sensitive, she helps you tune into your inner sensations and thoughts so that the first steps toward healing can begin. With repeated sessions you grow more and more in touch with your own inner knowing and confident about what steps to take to heal your life. Highly recommended!"
