General info

Holistic healing classes, group therapy & Healing Touch classes offered at Handcrafted Health are a way to renew and restore yourself while learning new skills and concepts. They also support stress reduction, the mind-body connection and mental health wellness. In general

  • Holistic healing classes & Healing Touch are for personal growth and/or professional development
  • Group therapy & skills building groups are for personal growth, psycho-education and mental health wellness

Are you a helping professional, like a counselor, social worker, nurse, massage therapist, or doctor? Healing Touch can be incorporated into your professional work as well.  Continuing education units are also available for Healing Touch.

Are you an individual looking to explore and learn for personal development? I also offer psycho-educational experiences through group therapy and skills building groups. They can help cultivate insight through a group dynamic process. Groups help individuals learn new skills, apply them and hopefully grow new coping tools for everyday living.

All holistic healing classes, Healing Touch program classes, and group therapy groups are offered in downtown Silver Spring, MD and are metro accessible.


Group therapy & Skills building groups

There are no active groups at this time. Please check back in mid-late January for 2018 groups.


Healing Touch Classes

At this time, Healing Touch classes in the DMV community for 2018 are postponed indefinitely. I am still teaching within hospital and educational settings.

For individuals: Interested in a Healing Touch class in Maryland or DC Metro Area or elsewhere? Email me

For Groups and Organizations:
Interested in a Healing Touch class(es) for your group or organization or college/university? Training in Healing Touch greatly impacts the well-care of a person who’s become trained as a Healing Touch provider. In turn, it can impact the patient, client family member or customers they interact with. It can help with patient-centered care and outcomes and provider well-care.  Share your interest or needs. Call or email.
