“Portia is magical. Working with her has changed my life. Portia helped me to become pregnant. I truly believe my work with her is the reason why it happened so quickly, and one of the reasons why it has been a very healthy pregnancy so far. She continues to help me tremendously in developing new and effective tools to cope with a life-long anxiety disorder. Perhaps most importantly, Portia has helped me discover and connect to sacred places within myself that I didn’t know were there. The benefits of this work extend to all aspects of my life – from my work, to my relationships to my broader connection to the world.” ~ B. R.

“Portia is a very skilled practitioner and I have greatly benefited from her expertise in helping my body heal physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.” ~ D. D.

“Portia is such a good spirit! Everything you’ve always wanted from a health professional. A great listener. A great educator. A great healer. A great spirit; always upbeat, kind, gentle, caring. Isn’t this what we have always hoped for in our well-being providers?” ~ H. T.

“Portia is the best! I recommend her to everyone I know. I initially received acupuncture for a really bad case of TMJ (intense pain, locked jaw, couldn’t eat solid foods) when doctors and chiropractors could not help me. Her treatment got my jaw 100% back to normal – such a relief! I continue to regularly see Portia (for over a year now) to keep my whole body and spirit well and I’ve truly never felt better. Portia is a great listener and takes time to hear her clients and what he/she needs. Her approach does not feel formulaic or “one-size-fits-all;” you will receive something crafted to your needs. If you’re looking for healing go see Portia!!!” ~ H. H.

“This IS one of those types of work that treats the root of things rather than just the symptoms (though it’s excellent for that as well!). It’s comprehensive and all encompassing and has really, for someone who is not very ‘in his body’, changed the way I experience my depression and life. Energy and how it lives and moves (or gets stuck) in our bodies is a very real thing. The thing I *love* about Portia is that she can be as ‘out there’ as she can be scientific in her explanation of her approach; she’s very intuitive, open minded, and generally a powerhouse of information and expertise and practice. Any hesitation or skepticism I’ve had (which has been minimal, but still) is erased the moment I get up on the table. And when you visit with Portia you are truly getting a full self work up. She formulates a treatment plan based upon what’s occurring in your life, relationships, body, energy, and spirit. And on top of that, she constantly customizes and revises your treatment plan to address your needs as they vary. The only downside is the cost incurred, but also if you are dealing with chronic conditions or having genuine ‘stuckness’ in some part of your life, this is worth it. See for yourself.” ~ B. G.
