Do you believe in miracles?
Then, last spring, I met a little girl named Maryfaith whose chronic pain had become so unbearable, she came to my office in a wheelchair. After two sessions, this beautiful 11 year old went from a wheelchair to running around with friends at her birthday party. When Maryfaith’s mom called me to tell me that her pain was at a zero for the first time in years, my heart sang.
The thing is, Maryfaith’s miracle isn’t an anomaly. Session after session, year after year, I watch my clients transform their lives right before my lives. I realized after meeting Maryfaith that my problem wasn’t with the word miracle itself but what it might suggest about how I see my work.
I’m no prophet or savior. What I am is a guide and catalyst to my client’s healing and I draw from the wisdom of time honored tools and techniques like the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Tapping), Reiki, and Past Life Regression to help people heal themselves. I didn’t perform magic on Maryfaith. I helped her create her own miracle.
So, yes, I believe in miracles. And I’m honored to witness them, nearly every day.

Why I do what I do
Despite the surgery, my chronic back pain continued for 10 years, at times rendering me unable to get out of bed. Then, when I was 25 years old, my father-in-law gave me a book about The Mind-Body Connection and everything changed. I had thought that my back problems were from genetic abnormalities and injuries — physical things. I began to realize that there was a very real and palpable emotional component to my pain that I had never considered before. What a concept!
Fast forward through a few years of awkwardly trying to harness the mind-body connection to help me to heal my back (and whatever other pain du jour came my way). I searched high and low, trying everything I could find to help me on my journey. A lot of things worked a little bit. That was when I discovered EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Tapping. This simple and effective tool gave me the key to heal my back. I tapped on my physical symptoms; I tapped on my stress, on my anxiety, on past traumatic events, on my genetic disposition to having a bad back (since my dad had a bad back, too), on the trauma of the surgery, on the lost decade of pain, and anything else that came up. It was tremendous! My back pain went away!
At that moment, I decided to dedicate my life to helping others with these powerful tools. I became a holistic healer and EFT Practitioner because it makes my heart sing to help others to free themselves from physical and emotional pain. My story is nothing short of a miracle.
