Carole has over 15 years of experience working in a healthcare setting as a diabetes educator. She has worked with hundreds of adults with Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational Diabetes alongside endocrinologists, APRNs and registered nurses to help improve their health and overall quality of life through education and lifestyle management. She has seen firsthand how important it is to effectively balance disease management with the daily struggles of life.
After being introduced to Reiki in her own journey of stress management, she discovered her love for the healing practice and quickly started her certification. Knowing that stress is often increased by repeated thoughts of the past, or worries of the future, mindfulness felt like the perfect companion to her Reiki practice. As psychologist William James wonderfully said, “The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.” Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present without judgement. This practice helps reduce worry, anger, frustration, and self-judgment. By coupling mindfulness and Reiki, Carole can help individuals restore peace and balance to their lives.
Carole offers in person and distance Reiki sessions, as well as mindfulness training to anyone who is interested in reducing their stress and improving their health and wellness.
