I am a psychiatrist who has been using cutting edge modalities, integrating traditional medicine with holistic and alternative methods.
Over the years, I have successfully combined the traditional use of medicine with psychotherapy, energy medicine, kinesiology, energy healing, bioenergy theory, and intuition. I have been a Jungian based therapist, prescribed medications, used cognitive behavioral techniques, been certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), have trained in and taught the use of kinesiology to access unconscious information, developing my own system over a decade ago. For many years I served as the psychiatrist and medical director of the San Antonio Trauma and Rape Crisis Center. As a student and practitioner of alternative and complementary medicine, intuition, Reiki, and a long time practitioner of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, I have come to understand the importance of energy in wellness and healing. By interweaving these modalities, my work has been motivated by the desire to guide others in understanding and resolving emotions, behaviors, and belief systems that keep them from living at their fullest capacity and from experiencing life with joy and contentment through understanding their own bioenergy field and mind.
Passionate about sharing my knowledge, I have presented, given classes and workshops on Intuition; the Feminine Psyche; Dreams; Kinesiology For Accessing Inner Blocks; Bioenergy, Emotions and the Body; Sophia (The Wisdom of God) and the Psyche; and On Becoming the Authentic Self. In the past, I have also presented on Gender Discrimination, Inspiring Women, Motherhood, and Treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
But most of all I am passionate about understanding the essence of healing. My years of expertise, experience, and pioneering inquiry into expanded self awareness and consciousness have resulted in a new, exciting and effective treatment modality, Lifehood Memory Recovery sessions based on Valerie Hunt, Ed.D’s concept of “Life Shock” and on her Bioenergy Field Model. This work is a continuation and enhancement of her visionary theories on the interface of psychiatry, emotions, the mind field and health.
My diverse and unusual background explains how I came to develop INSPIRED Life Psychiatry and INSPIRED Life Counseling. What I have learned is that most therapy modalities have limitations. Although all are valuable and may improve the quality of life for many, often these improvements are not long lasting having a long term, or deep impact. INSPIRED Life Psychiatry goes deeper and has a sustained effect for those who are ready to have the most profound insights and who desire to evolve to a higher level of awareness.
The intent of my work is to answer the question, “what makes our life meaningful, how do we manifest our highest capacity, and how do we find peace with who we are and the life we have?” The answer can lead you to live life to the fullest, manifest your highest capacity in the world and reach the destiny your soul has created. INSPIRED Life Psychiatry makes the guidance, ideas, skills, and possibility for this level of expanded consciousness available to anyone who desires it.
