"I've turned to Gerry for shamanic healing work on a number of occasions through the years. There are a number of maladies which Western medicine can only treat so far...and where that road ends, Gerry steps in. He treats his clients with a great deal of integrity and compassion. He's a terrific listener and genuinely cares about his clients' well-being -- a natural healer. The results I've had with his guidance have been truly transformative. Highly recommended!"

“I have gone to Gerry for many healing sessions. His knowledge of a wide variety of healing modalities, World belief systems and professional training in counseling create a positive open space of possibility to deal with whatever issues are affecting me at the time. Three top qualities of Gerry's sessions that bring me back is that he can offer an intuitive objectivity to any situation, he draws upon a wide variety of knowledge from which to help, and he has a high degree of integrity that makes me feel very safe during his sessions.”

“Working with Gerry is hard to explain in words. If you ever feel you have lost your inspiration, motivation or hope then--he is your man!! I began working with Gerry as an alternative to back surgery. He directed me in finding balance, strength and direction in every aspect of my life. Needless to say, here I am almost two years later and I feel better than I ever have--and, no surgery! I am forever thankful that we had the pleasure of working together.”

"I feel so fortunate that with your help I have learned to become more aware of the various ways that spirit can choose to talk to me. In the past, I would have been mentally repulsed by the idea of a spider walking on my thigh -- especially a big, hairy one! But with the practice that journeying has given me, I had a second thought and as a result was able to glean some insight into my being."
