"Each practitioner follows her own trajectory in the practice of healing arts. Over the thirty plus years I have been in practice I felt increasingly drawn to the fields of depth psychology, meditative inquiry and tai chi practice. Each of these traditions invites a greater awareness of what is commonly referred to as 'subtle energy body'; the heart of the interface between the physical body, mind (feeling and thought) and spirit.

I train in insight meditation, underwent analysis, and read extensively in the wisdom traditions. I invite conversation in a treatment session in regards to any area of personal development, including the art of dream inquiry.

I am married to Steven Miller (northamptonchiropractic.com) . Together we have raised three children.

I also welcome the person who wants acupuncture 'straight-up' for any particular concern."
