I have practiced as a critical care nurse
at Yale New Haven Hospital for 32 years
and have been a Reiki practitioner for 20 years. Until retirement, I offered Reiki treatments to patients,
family members, and staff at the hospital. Presently I am offering Reiki treatments in Connecticut at the Orange Chiropractic Center, Wallingford Family YMCA, and Wallingford Senior Center.
Recently I have been teaching Level 1 and 2 Reiki classes at Wallingford Adult Education and The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts Center, Middletown, CT.
Since 2012, I have provided free Reiki sessions to women
cancer patients at the annual Spa Days at the Marlene
Meyerson JCC in Manhattan. I have also participated at various public clinics and Yale New Haven Heart and Vascular Center events.
My goal is for the community to access Reiki through classes, presentations, and treatment sessions. A balanced mind and body promote healing and resilience.
Walking is one of my favorite pastimes. I've incorporated some
observations about Reiki practice in my recent article, "The Pandemic, Walking and Self Care."
