After many years as a small business owner, I attended Southwest Texas State University and received my Bachelor of Arts and Sciences with an emphasis in Psychology in 2002. I then went on to receive my Master of Arts degree with a major in Professional Counseling in 2006 from Texas State University-San Marcos.

In 2016, I discovered Biofield Tuning, sound therapy with tuning forks. My experience with this method has proven to be a remarkable addition to energy work and counseling! In combination with the other healing methods at my disposal, it is a very powerful tool.
While I have been honored to have facilitated and witnessed profound change in many clients through powerful therapeutic tools, never have I seen such meaningful change as Biofield Tuning produces! Added benefit? It starts with the first session ….
