As a psychotherapist, healer, teacher, life coach, minister, and spiritual guide, with over 30 years in private practice,  I have used a wide variety of holistic therapeutic techniques focused on healing the Mind, Body and Spirit

I now specialize in Energy Psychology Healing techniques, along with ThetaHealing and EMDR, EFT, Interative Guided Imagery, Clinical Hypnosis and Spiritual Kinesiology.

Energy Psychology is directed at the bodies own energy system and treats psychological problems at the quantum level resulting in immediate cognitive and behavioral shifts.  It is effective in treating anxiety, phobias, addictions, anger, trauma, PTSD, depression, guilt, physical pain and peak performance enhancement.

I am backgrounded in the principals of Object Relation Theory and Transactional Analysis and Developmental Theory, Body Soul Rythms (the work of Marion Woodman)

I have led depth psychological treatment groups and Body Soul Rythm workshops, as well as women's retreats and wisdom circles.  I developed and facilitated the Gather the Women community celebrations in Fremont.  

My great grandmother was Native American and she taught me on the Spirit level.

I have been deeply interested in the wisdom from indigenous cultures and have studied with many Native American healers and many years studying with Angeles Arrienand her Four Fold Way.   My work with Dreams followed my studies with Robert Moss, the pioneer of Active Dreaming, and I was certified as a Shamanic Dream Teacher.  I also completed a three year Core Shamanism program with Michael Harner and I have worked with Carol Proudfoot Edgar. 

Whatever you are searching for, hopefully you will find that this website helps you begin the Journey to your Home, to Yourself.

But first, I invite you to take a deep breath; hold it for three seconds, and then release slowly, blowing the air out gently. As if you are blowing on a feather. Good. Now take another deep breath; hold that for a count of three, and again blow out through your mouth as if you are blowing on a feather. Good. Now again take a deep breath, hold it, one, two, three, and now gently release it. Very nice. How does that feel?

Now, congratulate yourself on taking the time to Connect with Yourself, your breath, your body, your heart, this present moment.

It is from this place that the Journey Home to Yourself begins.

Welcome again.

In Beauty,
Susan
