LIFE IS HAPPENING FOR YOU, NOT TO YOU
I am passionate to offer my services as a holistic health counselor and workshop facilitator. My emphasis is on Bach-Flower Therapy, Homeopathy, psychosomatic counseling, transformative life-coaching and “spiritual midwifery.” As a naturopath, my professional experience spans 20 years in Germany and since 2003 in the United States. I am an adjunct professor at Bastyr University (a school of naturopathic medicine) in Seattle since 2005, and at Bastyr University in San Diego since 2013.
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 are pointers from our Soul, to help 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.
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 naturopathic medicine, psychology, eastern and western philosophy brought a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit. In 1984, I started my 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 a certified systemic mediator, a facilitator of Compassionate Listening, and co-facilitate programs that promote peace with my husband Brian (www.awakeningpeace.org).
