I work with people who want to make changes. The desire can be to improve physical health, to get over trauma, to stop self-sabotage and negativity, to clarify relationship issues, to identify a life path, or to feel like a mature, healthy, fearless, whole adult. After a course of treatment, clients tell me they didn’t know they could be so happy. And so, I persist. The glamour factor is low, but the psycho-spiritual rewards are tremendous.
Sometimes I work with one healing therapy, strictly following its protocol. But most often, I let my intuition guide me and I combine aspects of two or more therapies so you get exactly what you need to feel better. To my utter amazement, studying energy therapies has made me more intuitive, clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient. That means when I tune into you, I may know, see, hear or feel what needs special attention. This is a terrific short-cut to your progress.
I work with clients individually, in couples, with families or in groups. I present seminars to organizations and have a corporate wellness program. Contact me directly to book any of these options.
Energy healing. Energy therapy. Energy treatment.
Call it what you will, it means I acknowledge that you are an open energy system. Life force flows through you in from the top of your head and out the bottoms of your feet. Any interference to this flow creates stress, disease and emotional chaos. Removing the blocks restores flow and balance…everything “magically” improves.
Unconventional? Yes. Weird? Sometimes. Great results? Absolutely.

My “career” in “therapy” began the summer after grade six. I was very worried about some of my shy and ill-adjusted classmates and how difficult it would be for them to transition to grade seven – junior high school. I set up two lawn chairs at the end of the back yard and invited them over individually, for juice and cookies. Now, it may have been that orange Tang was kiddy truth serum, or, perhaps I was an innately skilled therapist at age eleven, but I tell you, each of my peers spilled their little hearts out about their fears around the new school. After a long talk, they all said they felt better, and left with smiles and confidence. I was hooked on helping.
By age fifteen, as my girlfriends were obsessing over movie stars, I was busy devouring my subscriptions to Prevention Magazine and Psychology Today. What – potatoes can cause arthritis pain? Huh – psychology is mostly biology? How? Since when? My head was spinning with learning I wasn’t getting at school. This ignited a passion to seek the hidden truth.
By age 17, I was going to a herbalist, a chiropractor, an iridologist – any alternative therapist I could find, for exploration and learning. I was in awe of the knowledge these practitioners possessed. But it never occurred to me that I could have a career in natural health care. It was out of my realm of possibilities.
I went to the University of Toronto for one devastating year. I had failed my piano audition and did not get into the Faculty of Music. This triggered all sorts of memories of trauma and disappointments. I did arts and science instead, and spent most of the year in washroom stalls, crying. I became depressed and despondent and went for traditional talk therapy for help. I suppose it helped…me get extensions on some essays. Complete waste of time, but it’s all I thought there was, so I kept going. I never felt comfortable or cared for.
I left U of T and transferred to McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. I gave a good enough audition that I got into the music department. I found a new therapist, to continue the misery of reliving every trauma I’d ever had, every week. Friends said I had lost my spirit, my vibrancy and I was difficult to be around. But I didn’t know of anything else to do for myself. (Side note: I was never put on any medication, thank goodness!)
I found an amazing chiropractor. He took care of all my aches and pains from carrying a heavy knapsack and playing piano too many hours. He taught me the neuro-muscular-skeletal reasons for my discomfort. I also found that my mood was improved with each visit. He said he gave me “attitude adjustments.” I was so inspired by Dr. Dan Stevenson and his noble profession that I seriously considered dropping out of the music program and going to Chiropractic College. After speaking to him about it, I learned that I’d have to work on cadavers. That was the deal-breaker for me. No dead bodies, please!
Fast forward a few years. I did a 3-year B.A. in Music and was working on my B.A. in Drama. I discovered that Hamilton had a Holistic Centre. I started sneaking out of my evening film classes early to go and take healing courses at the Holistic Centre. Skipping class to go to class – I was really keen!
It was by exposure to some forward thinkers that I began changing and maturing as a person. Just when I started to feel like a functioning adult, teaching piano, acting and doing voice-overs, I was in a car accident where I injured my neck and back. I went to Toward Glenaura, a natural health clinic run by Jean and Richard Toward. I received a variety of energy healing treatments for a few months. I was getting better quickly and my curiosity was piqued. Jean mentioned that she taught classes and I was welcome to join. The other students were 20 – 40 years my senior, but I didn’t care. I felt like a prodigy.
Thus began my intensive study of energy healing. Twice a week for over four years, I took classes in many healing techniques. I studied with Jean and Richard, and all the skilled teachers they brought in. I attended courses with masters visiting from abroad. I was doing intensive training every weekend, somewhere in Southern Ontario, besides the two classes per week with Jean and Richard.
My first certificate in energy therapy was from the Therapeutic Touch Network of Ontario. I studied with its co-founder, Crystal Hawk. This training gave me access to patients in hospitals. Therapeutic Touch was respected by nurses and doctors and here I understood the seriousness of the work I had chosen.
When I moved back to Toronto, in 1998, I learned of Energy Psychology. This is ultimate therapy. I don’t think there’s anything it can’t help. I had treatments of EFT and BEAM therapy that cleared trauma at the cellular level. This was life-changing. Within a few visits, I began to experience myself as whole and healthier. I then understood that all those years of talk therapy had only reinforced the very issues I wanted to heal. With energy psychology, the trauma was completely neutralized. I still had the memories, but none of the emotional buttons to trigger feeling bad or sick.
Dr. Joan Beattie, M.D., is the developer of BEAM Therapy. I was in her first class of trainees. I believe everyone needs BEAM therapy, whether a little or a lot. It was the fast-track to health, maturity and mental clarity for me. It made me happy and easy-going. I use it daily on clients who see me in person, over the phone, or at a distance. Any way you have BEAM therapy, it works. Clients who have been through traditional talk therapy, and then experience BEAM therapy tell me they think BEAM is at least 30 times faster. Given my own experiences, I tend to agree. The key to happiness and health is clearing away or neutralizing past trauma. (A trauma is any event, large or small, that made you feel bad.)
I am grateful to all the wonderful, skilled and talented teachers I have had. Most were superb and a few were only very good. As I work with clients and teach Therapeutic Touch, the spirits and styles of all my teachers will surely emerge and guide me.
