  • An introduction

    Since this is my first article for health central, I wanted to give readers a chance to get to know me. I wanted you to feel as if we were sitting together outside on my patio with a cup of chai tea, talking about our lives. It is these kinds of conversations that let us get a deeper understanding of one another, of what makes us who we are. I want to show you what I do and why I love it.


    When I reflect back on my life, looking for patterns and behaviors, I am able to uncover and understand more of who I am today. Sharing this intimate information with you- giving you the chance to really know me - is what I enjoy most.

    Study of one self

    Looking back on the years of my life, I truly see the repeating patterns. My love for science along with my desire to nurture became apparent as I studied science in college and became a nurse. My love for travel and studying other cultures always leads me back to the common theme of the study of one self, observing my behaviors and how I interact with my environment. This is a meaningful journey-learning how to uncover the intrinsic and true nature of one's own self. Uncovering our true nature allows us to live genuinely. By living in this way, we effortlessly reflect the best of our self in everything we do. Life brings with it many avenues for self-growth. For me, it is a constant process of renewal, education and self-discovery.  I embrace the challenges life brings me every day. Everyday my life pushes me to grow. This constant curiosity and investigation of my life leads me closer to my true self.


    One of my passions

    Up to this point, my life's work has cumulated into one of my greatest passions: helping others find their innate ability to help themselves.  My wish for you, the readers of health central, is that you will gain knowledge and insight. My hope is that you will then be able to apply practical solutions to your every day lives, solutions that will bring you balance, health and true well being for your self and the life of your family.


    Getting to know you

    I look forward to getting to know my readers. I encourage you to send me your questions and concerns. I will endeavor to answer them to the best of my ability or find someone who can. I have many other resources to help available on my website:

        * watch a recent TV segment on 4 tips to relieve stress
        * listen in to my weekly web radio show, "Creating Healthy Balance Everyday" ( it includes a new 15 minute guided relaxation each week- you can listen through your computer or download to an ipod)
        * read the first 3 chapters of my book, Healthy Mother Healthy Child creating balance in everyday life

    I look forward to our new relationship at health central! Check out my posts at learning to relax/anxietyconnection


    With very best wishes,
