Shamanism captured her attention as a 19yrs old, during a trip to West Africa. She had her first spiritual extraction and power retrieval by a local Medicine man aka the Marabou man. This encounter led to further journeys to learn from Indigenous Tribes, in particular tribes from the Upper Amazon Jungle and the Andean mountains.
Blending Shamanic tools and approaches, into her Therapy work was a real ‘game changer’ and she continues to be astounded by the profound changes people experience, by re-integrating spirituality into their lives.

In Gary’s own words:
I am the founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), I was born April 13, 1940 and have been intensely interested in personal improvement via psychology since my age13. That was when I recognized that the quality of my thoughts was mirrored in the quality of my life. Since then I have been self taught in this field, seeking only those procedures that, in my opinion, produced results.
I consider EFT, the core of which I learned from Dr. Roger Callahan, to be an important tool to achieving the highest levels of healing.
I also have high regard for Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) in which I am a Certified Master Practitioner. Please know that I am neither a psychologist nor a licensed therapist. Rather, I am a Stanford engineering graduate and an ordained minister and, although I don’t pound the table for any particular religion, I do come at this procedure from a decidedly spiritual perspective.
