"Hi Pat, Thanks for reading my blog. Although, I think that homeschooling is great, it is really not for me. My daughter is in a Charter school at the moment. Donah"

"Have you considered homeschooling? We have a large and active homeschooling community, 19000 students in the Charlotte region. Yes, even single moms can homeschool. :-) Our thoughts create our experience, of course! Pat"

Profile Information

What does "holistic" mean to you?
Holistic is when you evaluate the whole being of a person, not just look at the symptoms. You actually pay attention to who they are, and their lifestyle. It is also an opportunity to take charge of your life and use alternative solutions for your health.
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
20+ years
a little about me
I am a mindfulness coach, herbalist, intuitve healer, yoga and meditaiton teacher, and a Mother you cares about her children's health.
What professional or business affiliations do you offer?
I own and operate an herbal body care company. All products are made with whole plant herbs. Many of the plants are wildcrafted, homegrown or obtained by organic farmers.

I have also created a behavior modification program that I teach mindfulness, breathing techniques and how to manage your emotions. I have created a meditation CD that compliments the program.

I coach individuals by partnering with them to assist them in becoming more aware of their patterns, how they move through the world and their emotions so that they are more in control of who they are and their world. I work with business executives, teachers, medical professionals, and students.

Co-Creative Parenting

I happened to mention to a few friends, that I would love to move back to NY, how I discussed the idea of moving with my daughter, and she is onboard with the decision. I received a look of surprise that was both amusing and unnerving. Did I say something wrong? “But, you are the parent”, was the response that I received. Yes, I am the parent, but I believe in co-creation. I cannot create something that involves another human being that is capable of making choices, and expect a good outcome… Continue
