Areas of Interest

My professional areas of interest include the treatment of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I also enjoy treating neck pain, headaches, women’s health, knee pain, stomach pain, and nausea. My practice includes the use of cupping. Having achieved my journalism degree from the university in 1989, I continue to be involved with this field through occasional freelance writing and blogging.

Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, playing my ukulele, working out, reading, and making art.
