Most of our subconscious beliefs find their way in during our early years, and commonly come from our parents or other significant authority figures. Many of these beliefs fuel the engine that powers our creation in life. They color everything we think, say and do, and give rise to most of our thoughts and emotions.
Beliefs, thoughts and feelings powerfully influence our health, relationships, career, finances, creativity, self-esteem and peace of mind.
Limiting beliefs keep us stuck in old cultural and familial paradigms – the head-bangers we keep running into in life. Empowering beliefs open doors of opportunity in blank brick walls. You can rewrite limiting beliefs into positive ones and support rapid transformation of nearly any life situation you are truly ready to change.
The PSYCH-K process allows us to identify old beliefs that are holding you back. A holistic integration process can then transform the beliefs to support you in your desired outcomes.
The processes are gentle and respectful. Nothing is done without the consent of your conscious and subconscious minds.
This is something akin to an engine overhaul, wherein the weak parts (dis-empowering beliefs and habits) are replaced with strong ones of your own choosing.
Because our health and well-being is so strongly influenced by our mental-emotional states, PSYCH-K has been helpful for many chronic health conditions such as chronic pain, recovery from disease, and weight issues. It can also be a powerful tool for supporting people with mental health challenges like depression and phobias.
My PSYCH-K sessions are $80 per hour. The simpler “Balances” take about 30 min, and deeper, more complex Core Belief Balances usually requires about 60 minutes. In some cases, it may take 90 min to complete.
If you really want to make a life change, I recommend the Core Belief Balance. This is a powerful process that demonstrates which of your subconscious core beliefs are supporting you in life and which are holding you back.
We then identify which is the highest priority for your system to change, and where it’s anchored in your body. After the main balance is in place, we then do an “ecology check” to make sure the different aspects of your being will support the change.

Here I’ll be describing a variety of traditional and cutting-edge lab tests and their uses.
While my work in general is very relaxing, a session with this focus allows for a deeper relaxation than the usual Evaluation & Treatment visit.
These therapies are deeply nurturing and therapeutic in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms. They are done with a very light touch, and it’s not uncommon for clients to have a much needed nap.
My focus is on improving the function of your Cranial-Sacral system and your Lymphatic system. This work goes way beyond the average massage in it’s scope and depth.
Both therapies stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation, and digestion) and relax the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight). They also stimulate and support the immune system.
The work keeps “working” for 24-48 hours after the session, and is excellent for stress-reduction.
It’s a deeply therapeutic mini-vacation. There’s nothing for you to do except relax, rest and receive – while all that good therapy is happening!
While amenable to a 30-minute visit, I’d recommend a full hour to really get the benefit.
Even though my office space is quiet and peaceful, Deep Relaxation sessions are also great for home visits.
An Inner Journey session utilizes Interactive Guided Imagery for inner exploration. I mostly follow your clues as we move together on this inner adventure. Sometimes it’s appropriate to “lead” a little, especially during transitions.
It’s predominately a right-brained, creative experience for both of us. Sometimes it’s simple, and sometimes it’s deeply profound. We’re not trying to make anything happen, but rather exploring the inner realm with curiosity and a sense of adventure.
The session often has a focus of your choosing, but this isn’t necessary. It often begins with what you’re aware of in your body in this moment. It can be a way to meet your Inner Guide or Healer, or your Inner Child.
Interactive Guided Imagery can help bridge the gap between conflicting aspects of ourselves, and bring healing to relationships between different aspects of ourselves.
Almost always intriguing and relaxing, an Inner Journey Session is best done within the span of an hour visit. Be prepared for an adventure!
This focus requires two different modes of working: left-brained and right-brained. Another way of saying it is linear thought mode, and holographic/intuitive mode.
In reality, both modes are always functioning to some degree, and this is a good thing. Using both allows me to do a better job for you. Certain aspects of my work emphasize one or the other.
Evaluation is part detective work and part subtle sensing, leaning toward left-brain function. Treatment also uses both modes, but the more sensitive work I do leans strongly toward right-brained function.
I use the Evaluation & Treatment mode when we’re addressing a “problem.” This might be an ache or pain, or another symptom like fatigue or “stress.” We usually go into this mode when you come in with something you’d like to change in some way.
First we evaluate, then we engage your body in the healing process (treatment), then we re-check our initial findings to ensure it’s complete.
Several different therapies are usually woven into the healing process to address the various aspects most appropriately. Click “Therapies” in the brown navigation bar above to learn more about them.
The Evaluation & Treatment mode is amenable to either 30 or 60 minute visits.

The surface area of your digestive tract is greater than the area of a tennis court. This makes it the largest, most active immune-reacting surface in your body. Food allergies are far more common today than generally realized.
Foods can cause all manner of symptoms, including a stuffy or runny nose, headaches, back pain, fatigue, arthritis, ear infections, and even mood swings, anxiety or depression in many people.
I offer two main types of testing for food allergies: Applied Kinesiology and blood tests for reactions to foods. Once the food culprits are tentatively identified, you will need to eliminate them from your diet for a period of time to see if your symptoms improve.
Once your symptoms have cleared up, it’s time to “challenge” with the suspected foods and see if the symptoms return. This offers all the proof you need to know it’s worthwhile to continue avoiding those foods in the future.
This process is called “elimination and challenge,” and is challenging enough in its own right! There is often an emotional attachment, or even an addiction to foods we’re sensitive to. As you can guess, the process requires a strong commitment.
Using the following screening tests to identify suspected foods makes the process much easier than the old-style elimination diet. But if you feel like fasting for several days, you will be able to tell if it would be worth it to do some testing.
AK is a specialized type of muscle testing, which has been used clinically for over 40 years. I’ve personally used AK since about 1980 and have found it very helpful as a diagnostic aid. When done carefully, and certain factors are taken into consideration, it can identify stressful foods or other substances with a high degree of accuracy.
While not 100% accurate (is anything?), it offers a low cost method that tests for all kinds of reactions to foods or other substances. This is because it assesses your whole body’s response to a food, not just a particular immune reaction, as does a blood test.
Since it’s done in-office, and the results are immediate, it’s a convenient and economical way to screen for food sensitivities. Allow about an hour to thoroughly test 15-20 foods (plus a few from home) and cover recommendations.
Foods can act as stimulants for many people, throwing their system into “overdrive.” this is an adaptive state, in which the body tries to keep going, no matter what. It’s common when people have been stressed or very mental, to the exclusion of other modes of feeling and being.
When someone’s in overdrive, their muscles usually test strong when they should be going weak. In other words, when I introduce a toxic or stressful substance like sugar, MSG or preservatives, their muscles will still test strong. There are various ways to prevent “false negatives” like this, by calming the system down before testing.
The point I want to make is this: it’s quite easy to miss important food reactions if the muscle testing is not performed with this in mind. The expectations of the tester and client can also alter the result, so it’s important to remain neutral and “curious.”
These measure the activity of specific immune reactions to foods. While there are several different types of immune reactions, 80% of them are mediated through the IgG family of immune response.
IgG reactions are delayed anywhere from 2 hours up to 4 or 5 days. Usually, a reaction is noted within 24-48 hours. This delay makes identification of food sensitivities difficult without some form of testing.
Most test panels include about 80-100 foods, so they’re good for screening a large number of foods. They also provide a quantitative measurement of the degree of reaction.
There two main drawbacks to blood tests. Most of them only test for certain immune reactions, like IgG. That leaves another 20% of possibilities untested, unless you add more tests. I prefer the test that combines IgG with IgE type reactions.
The other downside to blood tests is the cost. The Combination IgG plus IgE test costs about $275.
