I am a Classical Homeopath, and have been using homeopathy for nearly 20 years now. I am a graduate of the Homeopathic Academy of Southern California and I have a private practice in beautiful Encinitas, California. My back ground also includes a degree in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. I feel very passionate about creating a healthy balance between mind, body and spirit as well as creating a happy and well balanced home life. Look soon for this addition to my practice. Creating a beautiful, well organized living space and environment is essential to our wellbeing. My emphasis will be clearing away clutter, space planning, and working with the key essentials already in your home to create peace, harmony and balance.
I was first introduced to homeopathy back in the early 1990′s. I was immediately drawn to the concept of the Mind/Body connection and that our bodies are designed to heal themselves. This tied in almost directly to the way I was raised. Fortunately for me and my siblings, our mother was raised by her Irish Immigrant grandmother who believed that anything that ails you can and will be cured by a nice warm bowl of soup, a nap and a good BM! (Bowel Movement) If ever we complained to our mother that we weren’t feeling well, her immediate response to us was “honey have you had a BM today?” To which we immediately responded “disgusting mother!!” Little did I know how much I would appreciate this later on in life. We hardly ever went to the doctor, and when we did, it was almost always to the dentist; as a result I do have pretty nice teeth!
After my three daughters were born, I became very discouraged with the pediatric group I was using. There were usually long waits in the front office, followed by a very short 15 minute visit with my doctor, which usually ended with a prescription for antibiotics. However, that wasn’t really the worst part about it. The worst part about it was that I did not feel heard, and that I did not feel valued as the spokesperson for my three children. I was treated as though I had no understanding of what was happening with their health, and any discussions about alternative therapies simply were not negotiable, I was made to feel as if it were quackery. Just for the record, I feel that mothers are truly the top of the food chain, and nothing or no one can ever out rank a mother!!! My goal in my private practice is to empower young mothers with the knowledge that they too can heal their little ones.
