About me

I’m a shamanic practitioner/teacher, wellness counselor, and transpersonal psychologist, practicing in NM, CA, and OR since 1986.  Native American and Hawaiian shamanism are the core of my private practice, which is part of the work of Orenda Healing International, our 501.c.3 nonprofit, based in Santa Fe since 1993.  OHI supports individual and community healing, with special focus on alternative healing methods.  OHI’s publishing branch, Winds of Change Press, publishes a journal 3 times a year as well as books relevant to our mission.
