Area of Focus/Practice Interest:

Given my background in the education of special needs (ESE) students, I feel a special interest in the health and well-being of children. I've seen children who have difficulty in an educational setting because of issues that homeopathy can help with. Children with different types of special needs, both physical, such as chronic issues, temporary injuries or permanent disabilities, and mental/emotional, such as ADD/ADHD and autism spectrum disorders, behavioral issues, can be helped and supported with homeopathy. As a homeopathic wellness consultant, I don't diagnose or treat medical issues. I work with clients and parents to find homeopathic remedies to address the whole client, and to support other modalities which may be indicated. I enjoy working with children and find they respond well to appropriate homeopathic remedies.

Client Age Group: all ages

Professional Work Setting:

I see my clients in the office of Broward Chiropractic, at 4974 W. Atlantic Blvd., in Margate, FL. In the initial consultation, I meet with the child and parents to discuss the issues involved, including specific symptoms or details, history and onset. There is no physical examination involved and information from previous professionals is welcome and helpful. As a homeopathic consultant, I educate my clients about homeopathy and its application, using the clients themselves, since clients can learn and use homeopathic remedies in self-care. Based on input from this appointment, the best-indicated remedies are determined. After the initial appointment, follow-up appointments are set monthly, to see if remedies need to be adjusted with the goal of getting the best results in the shorted period of time. Questions and informal communication is by phone and email or text between appointments at no additional charge.

Services Provided:

I provide consultation and education about homeopathic remedies for the whole person: mentally, emotionally and physically.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Homeopathic treatment uses remedies chosen to match your specific symptoms - mentally, emotionally, and physically - to trigger your body's natural healing so that the things that have been bothering you get less severe and/or less frequent and you feel better. Homeopathy addresses the underlying cause of all your symptoms so that your body can balance and heal.
