Welcome! I am a classical homeopath practicing in Ithaca NY. Homeopathy views the body, mind and spirit as completely connected and seeks to understand and address health issues at their deepest origins. I treat the person as a whole, rather than their specific illness. Homeopathy is based upon the concept that "like cures like" which means: that which causes symptoms to appear can also, in a small enough dose, bring about a cure. Homeopathy thus works with the body in a way that stimulates our own defense system to overcome illness.

Homeopathic care is available all over the world and has been effective in the treatment of a wide range of illnesses including colds and flu, first aid crisis like broken bones, or chronic illnesses such as asthma, allergies, depression, headaches and hormonal disturbances. Homeopathy has also been effective in the treatment of chronic behavioral illnesses such as ADHD. Because homeopathy focuses on the whole person and not just their illness everyone can benefit from treatment.

My own healing process has brought me to a place where I view illness as a doorway to health. Illness, however it manifests, can be the beginning of a deep healing process. Homeopathy views the manifestation of symptoms as the language of the body and soul seeking to be heard and healed. In the words of the poet Rumi, “Don’t turn your head from the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you.” This connects to a core aspect of homeopathic philosophy that defines health as the vital life force being free to manifest as an instrument able to serve the highest purpose of existence.

For a more in depth exploration of homeopathy I refer you to a website by a fellow homeopath, Miranda Castro, who has published several excellent books. You can also explore the resource section of my site.
