Homeopathy & Other Healing Arts
I will never forget the day in my mid-twenties when a friend told me about an accredited college on the West Coast where students learned about the human body, herbal medicine, homeopathy and midwifery. I was elated to find out that such a place existed, and knew immediately that I had found one of my paths in life. In 1985 I received a degree of Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from Seattle's Bastyr University. I completed 108 hours of post-graduate study in classical homeopathy from the New England School of Homeopathy in 1994. I'm currently licensed to practice as a naturopathic doctor in the state of Washington.
In 1986 I opened a naturopathic family practice on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State, in beautiful Port Townsend. For thirteen years I specialized in homeopathy, herbal medicine and women's health care. After getting a number years of practice under my belt, I began to notice that certain patients would get only marginally or temporarily better, even with the best of diets, regular exercise, satisfying work and a reasonably happy family life. My pursuit of healing for these clients led me in 1996 to the discovery of the importance of identifying and treating inherited and acquired miasms, over and above the five miasms that were part of the traditional homeopathic teaching curriculum through the last part of the twentieth century.

The significant improvement in many people's health after receiving a series of miasm clearings deeply shifted my understanding of health and disease. From this vantage point, I began studying other non-physical causes of illness and gradually began applying what I learned to my practice. In this way, I've gradually built up a body of knowledge about non-physical causes of illness, and have been incorporating this knowledge into my work with patients.
Six years ago I reopened a non-primary care practice in the heart of downtown Port Townsend, specializing in what I call quantum naturopathic healing. My practice currently is a comfortable blend of traditional naturopathic healing modalities and quantum healing. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to re-invent my practice and in so doing, to fill a much-needed niche in the rapidly evolving and increasingly sought-after world of alternative healthcare.
Some practitioners of the healing arts maintain the same basic type of practice throughout their career. Others have practices that tend to evolve and shift over the years, often reflecting fundamental changes the practitioner has undergone in the course of their own personal evolution. My practice falls into this latter category, and the next shift is currently somewhere out there on the horizon, understood as yet only from afar.
This shift is the subject of the third navigation section, Deity Central. My forthcoming book tells the tale of my haphazard and exciting discoveries about the potential held within our very own bodies for undergoing a profound metamorphosis. It is inevitable that these on-going explorations will once again begin to transform my practice, and I'm looking forward to experiencing this evolution over time.
