BENEFITS OF HOMEOPATHY
Homeopathy is very personalized care. Ensuring you get the best possible results requires careful listening and observation skills. Deep listening is a skill I’ve cultivated since I was very young. As the process of healing unfolds, I honor your feedback as an integral and essential part of your health care.
My interest in homeopathy was sparked when I was so impressed by what it did for my kids’ health. My son had chronic glue ear after many rounds of antibiotics for ear infections as a baby, and then suddenly developed asthma and eczema as well. We had tried the steroid creams, inhaler, and anti-mucous medications which did not help very much, and I was beginning to wonder if all of the medications were adding to his susceptibility. Within a month of visiting a homeopath and taking two doses of a remedy she selected specifically for him, all three things were much better. We then took my step-son to see the homeopath, who had been out of school for six months suffering from chronic migraine headaches and debilitating nausea after contracting viral spinal meningitis. Within three days, all of his symptoms were gone, and he was back in school, with good energy and good health. Both kids enjoyed much better energy and emotional health after their homeopathic treatment. Now I know that with homeopathic care, the restoration of a person's "vital force" is what results in improved emotional and physical health, rather than suppression of symptoms.
Though I had a very fulfilling career as a mechanical engineer in the semiconductor equipment business, that year I began studying homeopathy and knew I would practice it someday.
I have practiced homeopathy since 2005.
I attended the Pacific Academy of Homeopathy in San Francisco, and have been awarded the designation Certified Classical Homeopath by the Council for Homeopathic Certification, and so am Board Certified in Classical Homeopathy, the highest available certification for homeopaths in the U.S.
I founded the Bay Area Homeopathy Association in 2007, and am currently President of the California Homeopathic Medical Society, founded in 1887.
Bernal Heights is my neighborhood, and I have a general practice: I see individuals, families, babies, teens and young adults. I specialize in helping people heal from physical, emotional, and trans-generational trauma in the many ways that people can experience its after-effects. This includes chronic cognition and memory issues, depression, anxiety, behavioral issues in children, headaches and other pain especially after a head injury / traumatic brain injury (TBI). To learn more about homeopathy for trans-generational trauma, I recommend this article written by my colleague Lauren Trimble, in Canada.
I am also happy to help people reduce their susceptibility to non-trauma related chronic symptoms including auto-immune conditions, hormonal imbalance, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, digestive disorders, skin conditions, and ADD/ADHD & OCD and many other conditions.
I started a free homeopathic clinic at the Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center in 2011 where I have helped many senior citizens with arthritis, chronic back and injury pain, depression, anxiety, restless leg syndrome, and more.
After the Camp Fire in Paradise, CA in 2018, I have volunteered my homeopathic services as well as my time as an "Ambassador" for homeopath volunteers with the Integrative Healers Action Network, an intrepid and ground-breaking non-profit providing integrative health services to people effected by disasters such as the California wildfires, in partnership with the Red Cross. This work has greatly revealed to me the urgency and potential for an integrative, collaborative team care approach for people in trauma, experiencing a wide range of limitations in their health and spirit. The capacity for human resilience is amazing, and I'm humbled and gratified to be a part of this model of care.
Since January 2020, my colleague Mary Johnston and I have had a free homeopathy clinic twice monthly at Community Well in San Francisco's Excelsior district. See below for more information on the free clinics.
"My overall health and emotional wellbeing is so very improved, I can't begin to explain it in a review. Moving forward, I will consult Kathleen for any ailment I have. She is a very gifted practitioner."
Bernal Homeopathy is co-located in a dynamic office of healers from East-West Integrative Medicine and several other independent businesses.

Nick shares his story of initial skepticism with homeopathy – once he understood how to use it, he saw the power in its effectiveness.
Kathleen explains what exactly homeopathic remedies are made of, underneath the umbrella of naturopathic medicine.
Sandi & Kathleen also discuss the “like cures like” theory as well as paradoxical ideas within the practice.
They share some ideas about the ways homeopathy works on an emotional and spiritual level, particularly with trauma.

You can book an appointment by email, phone or online.
I much prefer you to book your own appointments online. Please let me know if you are not sure what kind of appointment to book.
The best way to ensure you speak to me about a concern within a day or two is to schedule time with me.
Video, phone or in-person appointments are available.
If I have agreed to consult with you about your care by email or otherwise outside of an appointment, applicable fees will apply to the time I spend in doing so. However, I can not respond immediately to emails or text messages.
The best way to ensure consultation with me is to make an appointment, even if you just would like a complementary 10 minute call for clarifying questions, etc.
If you have my cell for texting (at my discretion), please do not text me in lieu of an appointment, only for clarifying questions or feedback during acute care treatment (following an appointment).
I ask that you pay 50% of my fee if you cancel your appointment within 48 hours.
Exceptions for the first time you cancel, due to child care emergencies, and if you are suddenly too ill to have a consultation.
If you have symptoms that may be COVID-19, or reason to believe you may have recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19, I ask that we have a telehealth (video or phone) appointment rather than in-person.
Fees are subject to change at any time.
All fees except short phone consult include the cost of one homeopathic remedy. Payment due at time of service. I accept cash, check or credit card. For telehealth appointments, you will receive an email invoice after our appointment, which you can pay with a debit or credit card. Most FSAs can be used for homeopathic care.
