I began my journey in Northern Minnesota. After obtaining a B.S. from the University of Minnesota, I went on to get my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1983 and have been in continual practice since that time. In 1994 I came to the Rio Grande Watershed, which has been occupied by the Tewa people for countless generations and after successive waves of colonization has come to be called New Mexico. This beautiful land has laid claim to my body, life, work and practices; I have found home here.
After over three decades of practice, I find I have come full circle in a sense, believing strongly in the powerfully integrative impact of coherent physical practices, the profound impact personally and globally of wise food choices, the deep nourishment of healthy relationships with friends, family, lovers, and the land itself, and the healing power of sleep.
My offerings are deeply informed by a growing awareness of the dire predicament we are in individually, collectively and globally with regard to climate collapse, social inequality, and the unraveling that’s occurring in our world.
Within my practice I offer an eclectic style of vitalistic chiropractic, cranial work, bodywork, plant medicines, Qi Gong classes, somatic/movement teachings and Earth based community ceremony that support a more embodied and connected life. It’s through embodiment, through the journey of becoming human beings, that we can live in a more meaningful way and be available to serve.
