About Me

I write about my experiences with healing with the hope of inspiring, informing and encouraging those who may also be on a healing journey. I also write because writing has always been a profound healing tool for me. I began my healing journey with a diagnosis of breast cancer in 1998. As I sought out therapies to help me get through my cancer ordeal, I discovered that there was much more to healing than just treating the body.

Trained as a physical therapist, I was not used to looking beyond the physical when it came to health. But as I tapped into what was going on inside of me, I soon realized that my dis-ease involved not only my body but my mind and spirit as well.  I began to uncover buried trauma from my childhood.  When memories of sexual abuse surfaced from inside of me, I knew then that I was touching on the root of my dis-ease.  I needed a holistic approach to heal myself and I followed my intuition which led me to seek out complimentary therapies such as yoga, acupuncture and shiatsu, just to name a few. I’m intrigued and in awe of the interconnection of the mind-body-spirit and the ability we all possess to heal ourselves.

I am so grateful for all that I have – a loving and supportive husband, two young adult children who inspire me and make me feel so proud and happy, and a super cute and sweet lab named Maddi. I practice as a holistic physical therapist, incorporating shiatsu, yoga and other bodywork into my treatments and I am currently enrolled in a yoga teacher training, which continues to expand my understanding and appreciation of the mind-body-spirit .

Thanks for sharing my journey with me.

  1. Liz-

    I just read “Finding My Voice” in the latest LBBC newsletter. I am so glad that you have shared your experience! Thank you.

    Ironically, I, too, as a physical therapist, working in PA. I have a real interest in yoga, meditation and complementary therapies. I have 1 more chemo date this coming Monday, then radiation. This is a reoccurrence for me. The first time around I did some soul searching but this time is different.

    I feel like I have something to learn or discover about myself and the little girl inside and that the breast cancer is giving me the opportunity to do so.

    I look forward to reading more of your blogs:)
