“When I was fifteen years old, I was walking to my friend’s house and I heard a voice. It came from the woods. It was clear, and male in tone. It said, ‘you won’t have children of your own. You will help thousands who are already here.'” (Excerpt from ‘The Spiritual Mind – A Guide for Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being’ by Kathleen Kiley Fisher)
As an Energy Medicine Practitioner and Yoga Training Facilitator, I have facilitated private sessions for twenty-three years. The work I’m called to do helps individuals connect to their spiritual self through self-awareness and emotional development. By utilizing self-care techniques that soothe, balance, and calm, clients learn to open the pathway within that connects to ‘inner knowing’. Professionally, there isn’t anything more rewarding than the personal connection that develops between a client and myself through this process. I am deeply moved by the divine guidance that enriches each session. The spiritual interventions are sacred, transformative, and deeply personal.
The individual work that I have done with clients over the years has led to many meaningful collaborations. While in private practice in Altanta, GA, I worked as co- investigator in the research study with Emory University, “Spiritual Healing, Wellness Interventions and Quality of Life in Parkinson’s Disease”. A pilot study that showed statistical significance in anxiety reduction, decrease in tremors, and an overall improvement in quality of life in patients who received the spiritual healing interventions. I also produced and hosted the television program ‘The Dream Show’ interviewing renowned authors in the fields of integrative and spiritual medicine. The show aired in Atlanta, GA for five years.
Upon returning to CT, I developed several Wellness training programs for mental and behavioral health professionals. The programs have been facilitated at CT Women’s Consortium, CT Valley Hospital, Department of Corrections (prison reform for adults and youth), UCONN Health Center, Comfort Keepers In-Home Health, and many other health agencies.
The increasing demand for the Wellness programs led to the publication of two manuals, ‘De-Stress With Mind, Body, and Breath’ and ‘The Spiritual Mind – A Guide for Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being’. Each training manual includes content and methods that emphasize how to successfully incorporate a routine Wellness practice anywhere – at work or at home.
I have been a Pathwork counselor for twenty three years and currently serve as a board member on the committee of the New York Pathwork Region (NYPR). I received my Energy Medicine certification from the White Winds Institute, Atlanta, GA in 2000 and my Yoga Instructor certification from Yoga Ed, Los Angeles, CA in 2008. I received clinical pastoral training from the St Francis Academy of Pastoral Counseling in Hartford, CT. I am a member of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors. I received a BS degree in Business Administration from Mt. St. Mary’s College.
