mentorship during her first Master’s Program included ongoing study and work
with Tom Watkins, MA , Thomas Moore, PhD and Alice O. Howell, PhD. Johanna has been an
active member of several professional organizations of Astrology and
attends national and international conferences focusing on the process
of self realization and transcendence using the symbolic language of
Astrology. Please see www.astromusings.com and http://www.forrestastrology.com/ for a greater understanding of her approach. Presently, she is finding that the focus on archetypal symbolism of the Divine Feminine is very engaging for women with the use of Doreen Virtue's (http://www.angeltherapy.com/about.php) Goddess Oracle Deck. Additionally, she finds that some like to take inspiration from the very real healing that comes from the natural world, and Steven Farmer's Earth-Spirit Cards (http://www.earthmagic.net) lend a self awareness to that natural connection within.
has studied with David Dalton of Delta Gardens and has completed his training program on the use of flower essences for health and

"I take the word holistic seriously, aware that a person may come to me with a problem on one level, perhaps
physical, but have a more pressing problem on their emotional level. I practice
integral nursing, making sure the priorities of
the body, mind, spirit, are all attended to, which is why I had the
passionate desire to cultivate skills and trainings which address
the interconnectedness of all life's experience."
