LIFE IS HAPPENING FOR YOU, NOT TO YOU
I am a passionate and inspirational holistic health counselor and workshop facilitator. My emphasis is on psychosomatic counseling, transformative life-coaching and “spiritual midwifery.” My professional experience spans 20 years in Germany and since 2003 in the United States. I am an adjunct professor at Bastyr University in Seattle and San Diego, a school of naturopathic medicine since 2005.
I have distilled my 30+ years of expertise in both preventative medicine and natural integrative care into the understanding that disease, illness, and emotional dis-balances have a deeper message from the Soul, to realign the body-mind-spirit entity as one. My healing approach is simple yet profoundly transformational, it translates symptoms into a self-empowered path towards health and inner peace.
In 2012 I wrote the book Your Body Reveals: Awaken to Your Truth.
Born in post war Germany, I was fascinated by the way suffering and past wounds affected people’s health and well-being. My study of eastern and western philosophy, psychology, and naturopathic medicine brought a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit. In 1984, I opened a private practice as a Naturopath in Berlin, Germany. Since then, I have shared my passions as a healer, teacher and workshop facilitator of Holistic Health, Bach-Flower Therapy and Psychosomatic Medicine. I moved to the USA in 2003, where I continued my work in a private practice and facilitating workshops in the Seattle, WA region and since 2012 in Ojai, CA.
My interest in health and peace on a global level, led me to study Peace Sciences at the University of Hagen, Germany. I am also a certified systemic mediator, a facilitator of Compassionate Listening, and I co-facilitated Jewish-German reconciliation projects (www.bermanhealingarts.com). I continues to offer peace and reconciliation workshops with my husband Brian in Germany and the USA.
