About My Practice
Karilee Halo Shames PhD, RN, AHNC
As a Certified Clinical
Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing and a Certified Holistic
nurse, I have worked in collaboration with Richard Shames
MD for 30 years (and am still amazingly young!). My work
occurs on many levels (physical, mental, emotional, and
spiritual) for those who are open and receptive to promoting
healthy change. It can be quick, easy, and fun!
I complement the work you may be doing with Dr. Rich Shames. I can help you figure
out why your program of vitamins and medicines may not be doing their very best
job. Working together with both of us can speed up your recovery.
A "gland-challenged" person myself, I specialize in health promotion, sharing
emotional support and tools for thriving. I am especially focused on helping
you to eliminate "energy drains" from your daily life, so that you can move into
your power fully and forever. I believe that humor is essential, and with it,
we can get through anything - and we do!
I encourage people to take charge of their life and their health, to be assertive
in commanding better health care from professionals, and to live each day with
In telephone coaching, I can help you to
focus on situations in your life that are draining your life force, and encourage
you to create support systems that will enable your success. I can provide counseling
and support for you to feel safe in making needed changes. I can work with you
using imagery to envision better outcomes, and to begin to create them!
In the office, I also help you
focus on eliminating stress and enhancing your energy, making better decisions
and creating greater health. In addition to counseling and health promotion,
I use my hands as a therpeutic touch practitioner with extensive training. Many
people feel energized and much more complete using these energetic interventions.
I look forward to serving your health needs.
