I work with a range of individuals from the age of Infant through Adult and my goal at Heal With Wisdom™ is to continually educate myself on topics and issues that my clients may experience and be struggling with.  Here are some courses and classes I’ve taken that will enable me to better serve your health needs and those of your loved ones.

I’ve participated in 3 studies on Wellness Therapy for Individuals and Pets with Different Health Issues. Two were self initiated and one was in partnership with another Craniosacral Therapist.


3 boys ages 8 – 10 with various forms of Aspergers received 15 complimentary sessions of Craniosacral Therapy.

Benefits varied and included:

  • Less Meltdowns
  • Improved Mood & Sleep
  • Improved Immune System
  • Improved Confidence & Speech
  • Safe space for healing
  • Relief from post surgery scarring
  • Increased Participation in Conversation



All three boys participated in their sessions through verbal interaction and or guided the therapy protocol to their level of need and comfort.


Study of the Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy on Children with Asperger’s Syndrome

The study included a Before and After Treatment survey that evaluated a number of health factors.  Recipients received 4 complimentary sessions of Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® over a period of a few months.


Benefits experienced included:

  • Complete Relief from Pain
  • Resolution of Social Anxiety
  • Pain Relief in Shoulder and Neck
  • Improved Energy, Mood & Sleep
  • Improved Quality of Life


This study was an exploration into the benefits of Craniosacral Fascial Therapy on 2 dogs and 2 cats.  The two dogs were Labradors, a male and a female and the two cats were a male and a female.

The male labrador was treated for an injury to his right posterior hip that he had had 9 months prior when another dog had jumped on him.

The female labrador was treated for Anxiety (separation and other) issues.

One cat was treated for issues with Feeding and Digestion.  The second cat was treated for general wellness.


Benefits experienced included

  • Calmness
  • Relief of Anxiety
  • Relief from Pain & Muscular Tension
  • Discovery of Other Health Issues
  • Resolution of Health Issues
  • Improved Appetite and Mood



The animals looked forward to their sessions and were cognizant of when and how they wanted the therapy to proceed.  They also clearly indicated when the therapy session was complete.
