Welcome. This blog is the journal of a traveling Healer, in which I share how a Healer sees the world. Whether I am working with a client one on one, working on a community healing event, or sharing a Healer’s point of view on world events, the stories aim to help you find growth from struggle.
A few years ago, I went into a dentists office to get a cavity filled. On the intake forms, it asked for my occupation. Since I have worked as a Healer full-time for several years, I put “Healer” on the form. The dentist went through the form and stopped at occupation. “You’re a…huh?” She said. I explained to her that I had been trained by an uncle in the oral traditions of Iroquois (Native American) medicine as a child. Later, I studied with other Healers, both in the US and also in the Amazon Rainforest. After years of study, I gave a healing session to an open minded physician. She was so impressed with the experience that she referred me my first clients. Eventually I was able to build a private practice and leave my Research Associate position at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I have worked as a Healer ever since.
The Dentist was curious, so she asked, “But what exactly do you do?”
I answered that through ceremony, intuitive guidance, storytelling, and hands on healing, I help people release the trapped stories of their lives. Regrets, resentment, fear, and insecurity can be carried in our bodies in the form of stress. Stress is not random. Stress has a history. When the story of our stress is held in our bodies long enough, it can affect our relationships and also affect the physical health of our bodies. I specialize in finding ways to help people release their stress and learn from the unfinished story which they were holding.
In modern times, Healers do exist, although our society has lost recognition of this ancient role. Medicine men and women still function in indigenous societies and professional Healers are nestled into offices throughout major cities. I have met many health practitioners who serve as Healers in the form of Physicians, Nurses, Clergy, Educators, and Therapists. Each role represents a color of paint on the palate of health care. Think of professional Healers as a very old and still relivant shade of help.
