Welcome To My Blog
I’m a writer, Reflexology for the Spirit Teacher and Practitioner, canine massage therapy teacher, Reiki Master Teacher. I began my career as a healer in 1982 when I graduated from the Potomac Massage Therapy Institute in Washington, D. C. Because people in my field never stop learning, I practice 9 different kinds of Reiki therapy: Usui, Violet Flame, Lightarian, JinKeiDo, Mari-El, Gendai, Karuna…, Reiki for Animals, and End of Life Reiki. Although I learned several kinds of massage, I knew before I even graduated from massage school that I was going to be a reflexologist.
I teach classes and practice in a positive, upbeat healing space beside a beautiful stream in downtown Woodstock. I give talks about Reflexology for the Spirit to groups of interested people.
And, of course, my career path could never have been complete without the skills I learned as I studied animal communication, Tarot card readings, Akashic Records readings, and Angel readings.
Everyone’s feet have stories to tell. Everyone can venture down the path to healing: physical, mental, spiritual, emotional. Those who know me, work with me, and study under me, agree that I am passionate about healing work in general and Reflexology for the Spirit in particular. With this blog, I’m inviting you to journey down this path with me.
I welcome your comments and questions. Thank you for joining in the conversation.
My mission is to improve the quality and health of all beings around me through a blog, a book, classes and private sessions. These activities create a ripple effect which extends healing beyond us all… beyond time and space.
This blog was edited and rearranged over many drafts in an effort to make sure the information offered is as accurate as possible.
Technical information presented is the result of years of experience, education, training, and research. The opinions I express are mine.
This is my story.
This blog is dedicated to healers everywhere. Your chosen path requires bravery in your attitudes toward your client partners and to yourself.
Bodywork challenges us to be lifelong students. Without the Reverend Dan Chesbro, Marge D’Urso, Kerrith McKechnie, Mary Ruth Van Landingham, Jonathan Rudinger, Penelope Smith, Dawn Hayman and Lucy Swensen, this book would never have happened. You answered my questions, suggested I move beyond my safety zone, and pushed me on down the road.
Healers are dependent upon their client partners. Every person who has come to my table, wherever it was, has been a gift of the universe bringing vital messages which made me a better practitioner.

Many people wrote this blog. The real creators are the wonderful people who came to my table. These individuals offered me an opportunity to heal and grow. Without client partner trust, not one word of this blog would have ever or could ever happen.
Even more trust is needed for a person to allow another to become their “teacher”. I’ve taught many of you as I fielded your questions, supported you in your quest, encouraged your spirituality, realized when the day had come for you to move on. Each of you has been a gift of the universe placed at my door. For me, teaching has been a very humbling experience.
I extend my most heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has touched my life as a client partner, a student, a teacher.
I have said and written many times: Kerrith McKechnie, Marge D’Urso, Mary Ruth Van Landingham, Jonathan Rudinger, Penelope Smith, Dawn Hayman, and the Reverend Dan Chesbro made my career possible.
Three people stand out in the creation of this book: Lucy Swensen, Barbara Friesner, and Sangi Van Den Nouweland. Without you three ladies, Lucy, Barbara, and Sangi, nothing would ever have happened to my book. Thank you.
Personally, I hope the next one will be easier for you!
