Living In Harmony
Spanning 29 years, Vicki's background in the field of health and human services has offered her experience with a wide variety of holistic
healing modalities. She is both a social worker and hands-on healer, and uses skills and experiences from both arenas in her work. Vicki has worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, hospices,
and integrative medical clinics. Her specialty areas are Oncology and Integrative Medicine, but she can assist clients with a wide variety of presenting issues.
Vicki received her Master’s degree in social work in 1993 and licensure in 1996, and then began studying hands-on healing work. While doing hospice work she was introduced to a form of hands-on healing that allowed her to relate to her clients verbally and soothe them physically. This led to further study and her introduction to Jin Shin Jyutsu, the Japanese acupressure she practices today. Over the years Vicki has gained proficiency in a wide variety of healing modalities including Usui Reiki, Energy Center (Chakra) Balancing, Aromatherapy, and Intuitive Healing.
Vicki works with emotional imbalances including anxiety and depression as well as cancer related symptoms including reaction to medications, chemotherapy, and radiation.
