About Us

The Healing Arts at Park Place was inspired by the desire to develop a space that was private, warm and embracing as people are invited to do the most personal work of all – on themselves. I opened The Healing Arts in 2002 bringing together seasoned and dedicated professionals in the interest of Wellness. From my personal experience in private practice I knew that the issues that brought people to therapy came from deep places of pain and that not only were their feelings hurting but also their spirits were hurting. Previous to opening The Healing Arts I had spent a dozen years studying many philosophies of holistic healing: Native American, Buddhist, Jungian, and Sufi. These experiences demonstrated to me just how complex humans can be and just how much potential each of as humans contain. But when we are suffering we have very little access to our potential.

While being sensitive to the emotional stresses of everyday life, it is also necessary for the therapist to be skilled in many modalities, and to be current with the growing field of psychotherapy. By bringing together dedicated professionals with a variety of backgrounds, The Healing Arts at Park Place can offer a safe environment to explore the depths of our experience and help us grow to our full human potential.

I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.
