Meet the Four Partners – For The Love of Healing
How did four very strong independent women, Judy, Laura, Sharon, and Barbara come together as partners? Many years ago, each of us began a personal path to health and wellness by mentoring with Deborah Singleton. As apprentices and then staff members we learned all about energy balancing as a tool for health and wellness. Over the training years, approximately 4,000 hours of apprenticeship for each of us, we gained the necessary experience, confidence, and trust in ourselves. When Deborah retired we wanted to continue the work and came together as partners. Thus was born For the Love of Healing! Because of our years of training and working together professionally, we continue to practice working in harmony as a team. This lengthy collaboration offers our clients the benefit of our many years of training, personal growth, and shared knowledge about ourselves. See our personal Bios below.
Accepting the challenge to live from the heart opening lens of higher consciousness is my personal goal. Observing what is reflected back to me through the people, daily emotions, and events that show up becomes my personal inner process – will I repsond or react? The choice -what’s it to be? These daily inner actions, if I am honest with myself, bring up lots of feelings and thoughts which I mostly accept with laughter, even sadness, sometimes tears. This inner journey never ends, yet this constant exchange feeds my heart and soul, helps me to change my outworn beliefs and negative thoughts and allows me to give back by helping others through their growth process. “Our work supports people who want to get healthy and stay healthy and who seek balance on all levels.” By degree, I am an English teacher who also enjoys consulting/editing for web site content development. I worked and continue to study with Deborah Singleton. As a student of personal growth I use meditation and conscious awareness to teach. My work brings meditative practices, insight, intuition, and energy balancing – tools to help you grown and learn. I am a friend, mother, and grandmother who enjoys being a vital participant in life and her community.
Judith is a Practitioner of Energy Balancing, Guided Meditation, Spiritual Counseling.
Traveling a road of self-discovery became a conscious choice while making a professional shift from corporate to the healing arts some 26 years ago. I used to think that if I followed certain enlightenment rules, I would finally “arrive”! I have since learned to relax into this big, amazing process of becoming a better human increasingly aligned with my soul’s purpose. Being in or returning to my grounded center no matter what. Isn’t that something we all want? This is the crux of what I have learned from our energy work. It is from this place of curiosity that I am both student and teacher and share with you. My ongoing studies with Deborah Singleton have proven invaluable and even more relevant today. In addition to the work I love, I enjoy my time with family, find comfort in the black and white order of a piano keyboard, thrill to walk in forests, and have a big space in my heart for cats large and small.

Feeling grateful, Barbara is inspired to share what she has learned through a wonderful partnership at For the Love of Healing. She welcomes the opportunity to support those who seek health, to improve the quality of their lives, and to live more deeply. Years ago, an unexpected health challenge prompted Barbara to search for areas of stress in her life. Her search led her down unanticipated paths. One of those paths was an intensive study of yoga with Gary Kraftsow. Another path was an intensive study of energy balancing with Deborah Singleton. These programs combined provided an opportunity for her to cultivate a deep inner awareness, peace, and health.
Barbara is inspired by teachers like Deborah Singleton who gently invite people to grow. Barbara’s combines her yoga practices with the energy blancing work inviting clients in a loving way to reach their health goals.
